In the wake of Oscars Ontheredcarpet dropped their video interview with Hunger Games star Willow Shields. Shields talked about her co-stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and the next film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.

Hunger-Games-Catching Fire Jennifer Lawrence Willow ShieldsShields talked about her relationship with the Hollywood star, “We’re like sisters on set and she’s like the best person you could ever work with,” Shields said. “She’s so much fun. She’s super sweet. I couldn’t ask for a better person to work with.”

Shields plays Primrose, the younger sister of Lawrence’s character and confesses that she’s look up to Lawrence in real life.

“It’s cool to grow up with such a cool role model because she is — I mean she’s been nominated for so many Oscars, she’s won, so it’s like you see that, but you also see her trip when she’s there and she’s like, ‘Ok, whatever. It’s fine.’ You know and she’s so natural and normal that she’s also there winning an Oscar. So it’s a great thing to look up to.”

Next year as Mockingjay part 2 lands, Shields will turn 15.

“I was talking to Jen [Lawrence] recently and we were saying the difference between 10 and 15 and 21 to 26 is insane. She’s like, ‘For me, it’s not a big deal, 21 to 26 is not a big deal.’ But, 10 to 15 is insane. Like, it’s a big chunk of your childhood and your teenage years,” Shields said. “So it’s definitely interesting growing up in the environment but it’s a lot of fun.”

The interview covers a lot of ground, but the title of funniest on set put the two big stars at the top.

Shields said the cast of “The Hunger Games” is “a big family on set” and revealed that Lawrence and Hutcherson would likely share the title of class clown.

“Well, Jen and Josh are the two funniest people on set. They’re absolutely insane. If you put them together, it’s just a disaster,” Shields said with a laugh. “But, I mean, it’s so much fun! They’re both probably the funniest people on set.”
