Jennifer Lawrence compared to Jesus

The star, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the film franchise, has received praise for her previous work, which includes films such as Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

Now, the 24-year-old, who's also won an Oscar for 'Best Actress', has been compared to the Messiah.

Donald Sutherland, who stars opposite her as 'President Snow' in the Hunger Games, says when he worked with her, he "realized she was a genius".

He reportedly told E! Online during an interview, "She's the right person at the right time, in the sense of Joan of Arc or Jesus Christ, any genius, in that sense."

"She has the ability as an actor to tell the truth out of the material and that truth is immediately recognizable with everybody because it hits you in your heart, your solar plexus and your mind."

"And she has the genius of person to be not affected by all of this. She's just a real girl."

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was released in UK cinemas this week.
