J-Law would be a master of survival [Getty]
Katniss manages with a traditional bow and arrow plus bravery method, but we can’t help thinking the Dorito-munching, PDA indulging, all-round superstar Jennifer Lawrence herself could rise to the occasion with some rather more quirky techniques. So, in honour of Hunger Games: Catching Fire out on DVD and Blu-Ray on March 17th, we've rounded up J-Law's top five survival tactics...
1. Dorito decoys
We know J-Law packs a snack – the costume department on American Hustle had to make replicas of her white dress after a Dorito staining incident – so she could easily lead rivals off her scent with a trail of cheesy goodness.
2. Stealth PDA
Katniss herself had the right idea: smooching = survival, and while we’re all for a bit of Peeta action, for the aww-factor nothing compares to Jennifer and real life bf Nicholas Hoult. While the world sighs with jealousy, our heroine could whip out the bow and arrow and see them off. Hey, love hurts.
3. Charm them to death
Because she really could.
4. Gurning getaway
No matter how glamorous the outfits on a red carpet, there’s always a distraction. A beautiful, gurning distraction. We’re talking J-Law’s rubber face, and her disarming ability to draw our complete attention. She’d make a great pickpocket – a handy ability in the Hunger Games.
5. Crafty tactics
Her big Dior gowns are undeniably gorgeous, but, as she found out en route to the floor at two Oscars in a row, sometimes there's just a bit too much fabric for comfort. We suggest she uses Brownie-style craft skills to whip up a couture-based trap.
