Jennifer Lawrence, who honed her archery skills for the blockbuster The Hunger Games, received an Oscar nomination for her work in a 2010 movie, Winter’s Bone. The movie featured some pretty outdoorsy acts, including, according to our friends at Petersen’s Hunting, a scene of Lawrence gutting a squirrel.
The scene was not faked, she told Rolling Stone magazine: “I should say it wasn’t real, for PETA,” she said. “But screw PETA.”
Prior to shooting Winter’s Bone, (a charming little movie RS describes as “a gritty, gothic, murder story set in Ozark meth country”), Lawrence spent a month in Missouri with a rural family shooting rifles and chopping wood in preparation for the role.
It seems that her experience in Winter’s Bone, The Hunger Games, and her upbringing in Kentucky has made the 21-year-old a bit of an outdoorswoman. We welcome her to the fold.
