Actress Jennifer Lawrence fears the reality of The Hunger Games is closer than we imagine after watching Kim Kardashian’s marriage collapse on TV.
The Oscar nominee leads the cast in the much-anticipated new film, which focuses on a fictional reality TV contest during which kids must fight to the death.

And she insists the premise of the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestseller is not as fantastic as it seems.

She tells Parade magazine, “I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone – but they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it.

“The books (by Collins) hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitised to trauma and to each other’s pain.”
