Stars joke about Lawrence's ego

Jennifer Lawrence's Hunger Games co-stars have joked that they are no longer allowed to look the actress in the eye on set.

The 23-year-old has become a huge star - and an Oscar winner - since she was first cast as the lead Katniss Everdeen in the movie adaptations of Suzanne Collins' books and her fellow actors teased that she had developed an ego by the time they shot the second instalment, Catching Fire.

"Some people on set they get too big for their britches... Jen, you can hardly talk to her any more," Woody Harrelson, who plays Haymitch, joked to The Hollywood Reporter.

"She doesn't like to be called Jen, she wants it to be Jennifer," he laughed, before co-star Liam Hemsworth added: "Or J-Law. I'm not really going to call you J-Law, am I? Because that's ridiculous."

Woody carried on poking fun at Jennifer, adding: "You can't talk to her directly or look her in the eye! That's one of her rules."

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - which also stars Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland - is due to be released in cinemas on November 21.
