Sam Claflin: JLaw is indescribable

Sam Claflin thinks Jennifer Lawrence should be a dictionary description in its own right.

The British actor stars alongside the 25-year-old in the Hunger Games franchise. Having made three of the four films together, Sam knows Jennifer well, and has nothing but praise for her.

"There is no bulls**t and that's what I admire about her, she is what she is, you like it or you lump it," he told British newspaper Metro. "Jennifer Lawrence is Jennifer Lawrence. You can't sum her up in any other words except Jennifer Lawrence - it should be put in the dictionary to describe one person."

The 29-year-old stars as Finnick Odair in the movies, while Jennifer plays protagonist Katniss Everdeen. The cast will soon be promoting the final instalment of the franchise; The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, and Sam told the publication that fans can expect "an emotional journey" before the story reaches its conclusion.

Sam also has a number of other projects in the pipeline, including The Huntsman, which is the sequel to 2012 movie Snow White and the Huntsman. The actor is getting used to starring in big blockbusters, and has developed some opinions about the James Bond series, saying bosses need to "change it up".

"What they should do with Bond is go back in time and set it in the 1960s when the cars were as they were, the women, the men and the fashion," he said.

Sam's career often takes him to Los Angeles, but he previously admitted he doesn't think he would ever set up home there with wife Laura Haddock.

"In Hollywood, I definitely don’t feel like I'm at home," he told Refinery29 last year. "I don’t think I ever will. I see some things that some people take for granted, and I think how? Like a private jet, for example. Or just a car picking you up from the airport. I’m still so used to getting into a taxi."
