Jennifer Lawrence debuted a new pixie cut earlier in the week at Hunger Games press events, leaving fans of the actress wondering why she opted for the shorter hair do.

Lawrence, 23, was heading to The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on Global Fan Day on Thursday when pictures of her with the cropped cut began popping up on her official Facebook page. Prior to the global hangout, Lawrence was pictured sporting Google Glass.

At the Global Fan Day hangout, Lawrence was joined by Hunger Games costars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth as well as director Francis Lawrence. Later, at the Yahoo fireside chat, Lawrence fielded questions from Tumblr users about her thoughts on the wildly popular franchise. When asked whether she’d rather live in the Capitol or one of the districts of Panem, the movie star answered:


A week of entertainment news in your in-box.
We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.

“I think I’d go in the middle. Maybe do like District 2 so I’m not a complete a-hole by living in th Capitol, but I also get nice things. Or, District 4 because there’s water. I like water. So, yeah, one of the early districts.”

Lawrence also had to answer for the pixie cut, which she says was the resolution for having fried and over-processed hair from all the different roles she’s taken on recently. But, there was also another reason. "My hair couldn't get any uglier," she joked during the Yahoo fireside chat. "I don't know, I cut it earlier, and it was just kind of like [shoulder-length] and it grew to that awkward, gross length," she explained. "I just kept putting it back in a bun, and I said, 'Well I don't want to do this,' so I just cut it off."

Before fans of the franchise and her beloved character Katniss could fret about her hair in the third and fourth movies, Lawrence put their concerns to rest. "This isn't how Katniss is going to look in the next movies, don't worry," she said. "I'm wearing a wig."
