The 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' star claims her high-profile acting career has robbed her of her freedom and she regrets not being able to hang out in coffee shops any more without fans hounding her.

She told Spanish website Mujerhoy.com: "My personal life is now ruined. I've had to create a new one and get used to this new life. It's hard and it takes time, but I'm sure I will get it.
"I'm just mourning my old life. I miss that. I don't want to forget what it's like going to a coffee shop and people looking at me like a normal person. A part of me can't get used to it and it makes me sad."
The 23-year-old actress - who landed an Oscar earlier this year for her performance in 'Silver Linings Playbook' - is best known for her portrayal as selfless heroine Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games' franchise, and she admits to feeling just as uncomfortable as her alter-ego when she was first thrust into the spotlight.

Jennifer explained: "It is funny how she and I have made this trip together from the beginning. In the first movie they force her to wear make-up, wear dresses and people talk about things that she doesn't understand.
"I know exactly how she feels ... I experienced the same thing. This can be a very weird world, but after a while, you're not afraid anymore and you can handle it."
