CNN — Jennifer Lawrence's "Hunger Games" training hasn't gone to waste.
The 22-year-old actress told Vanity Fair that, like her character Katniss Everdeen, she's not afraid to whip out her bow and arrow in the name of self-defense.
In fact, she told VF, she's done it once before:
"I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, 'I'm not letting them take my stuff.' I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I'm walking up the stairs. And I look and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, 'Heyyy, how you doin'?"
Thankfully for those guys, no arrows were fired - a fact that disappointed Lawrence's friends.
"They were like, 'We've got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!'" Lawrence said. "That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!"
