PETA is ticked off at Katniss Everdeen.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, "The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence opens up about her gross-out, squirrel-skinning scene from "Winter's Bone," the gritty 2010 flick which earned her a Best Actress Oscar nomination. According to Lawrence, 21, that moment wasn't faked in the slightest.
"I should say it wasn't real, for PETA," Lawrence told the mag. "But screw PETA."
Needless to say, PETA didn't take too kindly to Lawrence's joking remark.
"She's young and the plight of animals somehow hasn't yet touched her heart. As Henry David Thoreau said, 'The squirrel you kill in jest, dies in earnest," the organization's president, Ingrid Newkirk, told Gothamist Tuesday morning. "When people kill animals, it is the animals who are 'screwed,' not PETA, and one day I hope she will try to make up for any pain she might cause any animal who did nothing but try to eke out a humble existence in nature."
