The musician opened up about playing the character Cinna in the blockbuster.
One more reason to go see "The Hunger Games
" when it opens up in theaters on March 23rd: Lenny Kravitz
is in it.
The musician has taken on the role of Cinna
, the fashion designer and stylist of Katniss
, the movie's main character.
Kravitz recently revealed that he was surprised to know that many fans perceived the character as being gay.
"I'll be quite frank with you - I didn't know about Hunger Games - so when I'm telling kids and they say, 'Who are you playing?' and I say Cinna, they go, 'Oh, you're playing that gay guy.' That was an actual answer. I've never brought that up yet. That's how they've perceived it. So I thought about it, and I read the book and I don't see that he is or isn't [gay]. He's a designer, he's a stylist, he has gold eyeliner - that doesn't mean anything either way.", Kravitz said.
The "American Woman
" singer also revealed
how he prepared for the part of Cinna
: "I actually have a friend who is a dancer who is bisexual, and he was a lot of inspiration for my speech pattern and my rhythm, and kind of the way I sauntered in and out a little bit."Excited to see Lenny Kravitz in "The Hunger Games"? Make sure to follow 6lyrics on Twitter and Facebook!
