Confession: Jena Malone has occupied a special place in our hearts ever since Donnie Darko. And when we found out she was cast in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we were filled with the kind of joy that only comes from having your former celeb crush appear in yet another YA cult-classic. Her upcoming role as the fierce Johanna Mason is basically the most exciting thing since, well, the creation of the character.
So, how did Malone transform herself into Johanna Mason — a trained killer? In an interview for Vogue.com, Malone dishes on the transformation process — from the fitness to her hair feelings and beauty routine. Turns out, she is no stranger to this kind of character prep work. For an action film she did a few years ago, she apparently lifted 235 pounds, among other impressive feats that we will never accomplish.
If you care at all about The Hunger Games, women playing badass roles, or how our new beauty icon takes care of her hair through all the changes it undergoes (pretty sure that covers everyone), you should check out this interview immediately. (Vogue)
