Jennifer Lawrence is ready for fans to see her as the tough and gritty Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games" -- but first, she's showing off a much sexier side in Glamour magazine.
Clutching Katniss' famous bow, Lawrence flaunts some serious cleavage on both the cover and inside the mag's April issue ... where she talks about getting in shape for the movie..
"I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch people who say that in the face. But it’s nice being in shape for a movie, because they basically do it all for you. It’s like, ‘Here’s your trainer. This is what you can eat.’
She adds, “I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?”
Lawrence also addresses life in the public eye -- telling the mag "In some ways, it’s a hard life, but it’s a great professional life. I’m doing what I love, and then I get months and months of rest. I have a lot of money for a 21-year-old. I can’t stand it when actors complain.”
Check out more from Jennifer when the issue drops March 6.
