“In Hunger Games, it was an awesome responsibility. Those books were huge, and I knew that the audience was children. Along with me being young and growing and not able to be on a diet, I don’t know if I want all of the girls who are going to dress up as Katniss to feel like they can’t because they’re not a certain weight. And I can’t let that seep into my brain either.”
