Los Angeles - Jennifer Lawrence sends "drunk" emails to Woody Harrelson about Bill Murray.

The 25-year-old actress is a huge fan of the Groundhog Day star, who is a friend of her Hunger Games co-star, and she was delighted when she heard he was keen to work with her.

She said: "I've been a huge fan of Bill Murray for a really long time.

"I always wanted to meet him and I kind of spoke to him through Woody. I'd send emails, mostly when I was drunk, of things I'd always wanted to say to Bill Murray.

"Just the fact Bill Murray knows I exist was part one. Part two was when he wanted to speak to me - and then he mentioned something about us working together. That was cool."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 actress has adored playing Katniss Everdeen in the franchise and hopes she's learned from the character how to be a good role model.

She said: "I hope a little bit of Katniss rubbed off on me.

"Nothing about us is similar because she's brave and I'm an actress, but she was bestowed this position where people were looking up to her and that reflected in my real life.

"All of a sudden, I was being called a role model for young girls.

"People were looking up to us and asking questions and a lot of the world was listening, so we had to step up."
