MTV Shows Behind-the-Scenes Clip of ‘The Hunger Games’ Stars Signing Autographs
We’ve all heard about the brutal conditions the extras who had to stand in the sun for hours to help film the Reaping scene in District 12 and now MTV has revealed a clip that shows the stars of the movie giving autographs for the kids. How lucky!!
“This is Liam, he’s very handsome,” Banks says to an enthusiastic extra about her co-star seated next to her, as she signs an autograph.
“This is Elizabeth. She’s also very handsome,” Hemsworth adds with a smile on his face.
The cast and crew endured extreme temperatures while filming the reaping, and in the clip, we see that the stars and the extras were set up in a tent to keep them in the shade. Everyone seemed in good spirits and the castmembers had no problem joking around with one another.
“It was the least we could do,” Lawrence said of the experience, during which we see her explain to a young extra that she is Katniss, after which Hutcherson introduces himself as Peeta. “It was so hot, and so many of them had driven for so many hours to be there. It was the least we could do to sign autographs and kind of thank everybody.”
