The Hunger Games movies were so popular and with good reason! Katniss was a great role model for young women. She was smart, savvy and knew how to use a bow and arrow! While Jennifer Lawrence was perfect in the role, it turns out there were several other talented actresses who were also vying for the part. Here are 10 other stars who were almost cast as Katniss Everdeen:
10. Hailee Steinfeld
According to Hailee Steinfeld, she met with Hunger Games director Gary Ross in 2011 about the role of Katniss. “It’s definitely something that we’re taking one day at a time and making sure that everything is in place,” she said. Apparently, things weren’t in place cause the role ended up going to Jennifer Lawrence. The one thing that Steinfeld has over the Oscar-winning actress is that she was actually closer to the actual age-range of Katniss.
