Lawrence Praised For Her "Hunger Games" Hunting Form
Jennifer Lawrence had been praised from all corners for her Hunger Games performance -- even rocker/bowhunting enthusiast Ted Nugent has chimed in.
Nugent, a member of the Bowhunters Hall of Fame, loves how realistically Lawrence carries herself as bow-wielding Katniss Everdeen in the movie.Apparently Lawrence hit the bullseye with the performance.
"All of us archers and bowhunters are so very happy to see real honest-to-God archery form being displayed properly for a change," Nugent tells USA TODAY. "Proper archery is one of life's most beautiful ballets, especially when executed by a beautiful woman like Jennifer."
He adds, "It makes for the ultimate eye-candy."
Lawrence trained extensively with 4-time Olympian Khatuna Lorig prior to filming. "I had no choice but to be good," she said. "I was working with an Olympian."
Lawrence continued shooting 100 arrows a day throughout filming to make sure she stayed sharp. "I didn't want to get rusty," she said. "You can't let your technique go to hell."
