Jennifer Lawrence wanted to "burn" her 'Hunger Games' outfits.

The Oscar-winning actress got to wear some one-of-a-kind couture - including a stunning wedding gown - for her role as Katniss Everdeen in 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire', however, she admits she soon grew tired of sporting the fashionable frocks after hours of relentless filming.

She quipped to BANG Showbiz: "I enjoyed some of it ... a lot of the dresses are so lovely and fitted but you're wearing them for like 12 hours a day and after that you want to burn them."

The 23-year-old beauty previously revealed that she felt a kinship with her character while shooting the next film, 'Mockingjay', as both she and Katniss went from wearing everyday clothing to high-end couture after being thrust into the spotlight.

She explained: "It's funny how Katniss and I have followed the same path. When I was nominated at the Oscars for 'Silver Linings Playbook', I had to go to fancy red carpet events wearing couture gowns, and I didn't feel like myself.

"I felt like an alien, that's what Katniss feels like in the first 'Hunger Games' chapter, then in the second she gets used to this new life. She realises she has to communicate with this new crowd and wear certain clothes, start wearing make-up... That's kind of how I felt too."

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' is in cinemas tomorrow (21.11.13).
