Hunger Games Star: "Screw PETA"

Last week Cam Edwards of's Cam and Company shared how the hit movie "The Hunger Games" is having a positive impact on the sport of archery.

Now comes word via Petersen's Hunting that the Oscar nominee star of the film also has some choice words for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA):
"Hunger Games" Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence is apparently as cool in real life as she is playing Katniss, a bowhunting supersurvivor in the blockbuster movie. The 21-year-old beauty gutted a squirrel in the most talked-about scene for her role in 2010’s "Winter’s Bone" (for which she was nominated). The scene was not faked, she told Rolling Stone magazine: “I should say it wasn’t real, for PETA,” she said. “But screw PETA.”
Lawrence also told Rolling Stone that after she completes filming of her next movie, she plans to buy a house, a dog, and a shotgun.  You go girl!

Update: PETA has hit back:
"The squirrel was 's**ewed,' not PETA... We hope Jennifer will learn from other young celebrities like Justin Bieber, Lea Michelle and Kellan Lutz, who are using their influence to help, rather than hurt, animals."
I knew there was a reason I did not let my daughters listen to Justin Bieber.
