The star has played everything from feisty teenager Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise to a woman who finds out she can't have children in drama Serena. In real life she's 24, but with so many onscreen personas it can be hard for the Oscar winner to keep track. "For the audience, it's probably confusing to see me in two consecutive films, playing characters of completely different ages," she mused to the German edition of Glamour magazine.
‘When I'm hanging out with Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, I'm five years old.’
"For me, it's just great to inhabit all these roles. I don't feel like I have an age, anyway. When I'm hanging out with [Hunger Games co-stars] Josh [Hutcherson] and Liam [Hemsworth], I'm five years old. But sometimes I surprise myself by being very grown-up."
Jennifer is used to being surrounded by boys, having grown up with two older brothers, Ben and Blaine. They used to tease their celebrity sister mercilessly.
"I spent every day fearing for my life," she grinned. "That I'm now famous and can tell everyone in the world about it is unlucky for them."
Earlier this week, the actress took to the red carpet in London to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, which is due out later this month. With premieres for Serena around the corner, there isn't much time to relax.
"On a tiredness scale of one to ten, I'm a nine!" she laughed. "Even though I sleep all day. Besides work, I don't really do anything else - and still I'm tired!"
