With 'The Hunger Games' just one week away from opening in theaters, the spotlight is shining on Jennifer Lawrence, and now the star is opening up about the parallels between the best-selling book and popular culture.

When asked why she thinks so many people relate to the Suzanne Collins series, she told Parade: "I was watching the Kardashian girl (Kim Kardashian) getting divorced, and that's a tragedy for anyone. But they're using it for entertainment, and we're watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other's pain."

Jennifer has already made a name for herself with her Oscar-nominated performance in 'Winter's Bone,' but it's clear that she'll be elevated to a whole new level of fame once the movie hits theaters.

"I've never played a part this famous," she adds. "It's insane to get recognized from a movie that hasn't been released yet. That's just bizarre. And scary."

'The Hunger Games' opens in theaters on March 23.
