Lawrence: 'Hunger Games' trumps 'Twilight' for hot male leads

Jennifer Lawrence says her male 'Hunger Games' co-stars are "hotter" than the 'Twilight Saga' hunks.

The actress - who plays 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen in the eagerly anticipated novel adaptation of the Suzanne Collins trilogy - admitted Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner from the vampire film franchise are good looking but says her loyalties lie with her co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson.

Joking about a 'Twilight' / 'Hunger Games' feud, Jennifer told 'Access Hollywood': "Since the feud is now out in the open I'm going to have to go with our guys as hotter than the stars of 'Twilight'. Obviously Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are gorgeous but I have to go with my boys."

The 'Hunger Games' is set in a future time when teenagers are selected by a lottery system to compete to the death in a series of games put on for others but Jennifer admitted her natural clumsiness made it difficult to film.

She explained: "There was lots of running like track and free-running and then hand to hand combat, climbing, archery, yoga,

"I picked up archery pretty well but that could be because I had an Olympian trainer so it would have been difficult to not pick it up. I run like an idiot, I'm pigeon footed so I had to retrain my feet to run straight. I'm really clumsy!"
