"He changed my life. That was very important for me and my personal development," she smiled to German magazine Bravo.

In The Hunger Games, 24-year-old Jennifer plays Katniss Everdeen, who is stuck in a love triangle with Liam's Gale Hawthorne and Josh Hutcherson's Peeta Mellark.

She added the star taught her how to act fairly in situations, as he's so nice to everyone. But he also toughened her up a little, showing her how to stick up for herself and negotiate.

"It's my biggest weakness: negotiating. I'm a wimp about standing up for myself and Liam is always fair. He's always on time, he's always doing his job, and he's good about making sure that things stay fair. He's teaching me to toughen up a little bit," she recently told Nylon.
