were shot simultaneously over a grueling 155 days. It was a production that took the cast from soundstages in Atlanta to locations in and around Paris to a final wrap in East Berlin, where the leads all got a bit emotional after completing such an arduous task.
“It was so emotional that I was completely numb and dead inside,” says Jennifer Lawrence.
“It felt really weird,” says Josh Hutcherson. Liam Hemsworth adds “I was drunk.”
And it turns out he was. According to Hutcherson, he and Hemsworth had wrapped their scenes the previous evening and celebrated by finishing a bottle of scotch between the two of them.
“Then [the next day] we came to the set because Jen and Woody [Harrelson] had a last scene together and we wanted to watch the last couple takes,” says Hutcherson.

“Then they called wrap,” continues Hutcherson, “and we kind of sat there on the steps in this room and we just held each other…”
director Francis Lawrence, the franchise’s producer caught a picture of the four of them right after wrap was called. “You can’t see their faces, but you just see them all hugging.”
There was then a celebration inside the courthouse in East Berlin where they were shooting, with a bunch of champagne and the whole cast and crew there to celebrate the end of an era.
Jennifer Lawrence confirms that’s exactly what happened. She adds, “And then a week later we were all together and we thought, ‘Was it weird that we got so dramatic?’”
