Did being the face of the Hunger Games give you any pause?
It did give me pause, because it was scary, it was kind of a terrifying thing. There was nobody that I could really talk to, because it was one of those things where nobody really knows what you want other than you, so there was nothing anybody could really say. It was just something I had to work out with myself, and that was why I gave myself 3 days before I said yes, which was thinking through every single doubt, so that when I was here, when people were talking my picture and screaming and following me or whatever was going to happen, I knew that I thought it through and I said yes without a doubt in my mind, and I signed on and I haven’t doubted or second-guessed myself since. I’ve just spent the last months enjoying every last good thing of being semi-normal. I went to Times Square in New York, left the house in sweatpants looking like crap.
