Amazing ‘The Hunger Games’ Cast Interview With NerdTears.com: “Hope Is the Only Thing Stronger than Fear”
‘The Hunger Games’ cast (Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, and Donald Sutherland) chatted with Kyle McCarthy of NerdTears.com, and it really is a fantastic interview! Very intelligent, thought out questions are asked, and all of the cast members have great responses. There is some swearing, so just a heads up on that if it bothers you!
Gotta love Jennifer: “I want to see Matt Damon with a side braid!” Here’s my favorite excerpt from the last section with Donald Sutherland, who plays President Snow:
Kevin McCarthy (NerdTears.com): My favorite line in the whole film is that you say, “Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.” It’s a wonderful line!
Donald Sutherland: “That’s not in the book! It’s Gary Ross. He’s a writer of such intelligence. He was able to get the very essence of the film, the book, everything, in a couple of words. He’s able to say, ‘Okay, we take 24 people. We could kill them all. Why not? I’ll tell you why not. We leave one alive, because hope is stronger than fear.” Hope is a spark, it gives people hope, a spark. You have to be careful that spark doesn’t become a flame, because that flame will burn you.”
UPDATE: The scene that Donald Sutherland is referencing (“Hope is the only thing stronger than fear“) has been released, you can watch it HERE!
