Dayo Okeniyi says his The Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence is a goofball


24 February 2012

With the release of the hotly anticipated big screen adaptation of The Hunger Games just a month away, Dayo Okeniyi has spoken out about his experiences shooting the Suzanne Collins tome with Jennifer Lawrence.

The actor who previously appeared in shorts Eyes to See and Lions Among Men revealed that Lawrence did not take herself too seriously on the set of the Gary Ross directed film telling E! Online "Jen is 50% goofball, 50% Academy Award nominee, right before a take, she'd be like 'Oh your fly's undone', then [director] Gary [Ross] would say 'Action' and then she'd just go into Meryl Streep mode! And I'm like, 'How do you do that?!'

She doesn't take herself too seriously, you would never know for one day she's carrying this movie on her shoulders.

She's really talented and deserves everything that's happening for her."

The Hunger Games opens in cinemas on March 23 and features Lawrence with Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Wes Bentley, Isabelle Fuhrman, Elizabeth Banks, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Toby Jones and Donald Sutherland.
