Jennifer Lawrence Explains The Hunger Games To David Letterman

Jennifer Lawrence was on The Late Show last night, and Dave asked if The Hunger Games was a "vampire deal." Lawrence explained that it has nothing to do with vamps, and that it is a "very violent, futuristic movie where kids are randomly selected from their home districts to fight in an arena to the death. But we don't drink blood… that's sick." She was funny and charming, and also discussed her role in X-Men: First Class, saying that it was fun to play Mystique, but would have been more fun if she could actually shape-shift.

Lawrence also talked about growing up in Kentucky, where she rode horses without saddles. "Leather is for rich people, everyone knows that. "

Am I the only one who hasn't read this? Should I read The Hunger Games? I LOVE when Jezzies give me reading suggestions... A commenter recently suggested I read "Never Let Me Go" and I'm really enjoying it. Anyone else have suggestions for good books? Jezebel should start up a book club or reading list for people like me!
