As fans gear up for the second installment of the “The Hunger Games” trilogy, the film’s stars are dishing on the process behind their figure-fitting costumes. In an interview with E! News, the cast of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” revealed their wardrobe worries.
“I was surprised at how little camel toe problem there was. I was expecting a lot more,” Jennifer Lawrence said of her wetsuit-like uniform.
Josh Hutcherson echoed his co-star’s sentiments, revealing he was pleasantly surprised with the cast’s wardrobe.
“Honestly, I was expecting them to be horrible because the idea of being in a wetsuit for a whole movie sounds terrifying,” Hutcherson told E!. “But they actually were pretty comfortable once we found out you can actually pee through them; just go into the ocean and take care of your business.”
Still, the 21-year-old actor admitted that the snug costumes left little to the imagination.
“We tried cups in the beginning, but they looked ridiculous,” he confessed.
The stars were originally asked to wear thongs, according to English heartthrob Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick Odair in the film.
“It was so there was no VPL,” he explained, using an acronym for visible panty lines. “We eventually went with cycling shorts and that kept it all intact.”
Others didn’t wear anything, said Jena Malone, who plays fan-favorite Johanna Mason.
“Some people were free-balling it,” she revealed, later pegging castmate Jeffrey Wright as the culprit who went commando.
