Elizabeth Banks has admitted she has no idea how Jennifer Lawrence, 23, copes with her fame at such a young age, and she wouldn't be able to deal with a similar amount of attention.

Elizabeth Banks doesn't know how Jennifer Lawrence copes with fame.

The 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' actress doesn't think she gets recognised in real life because she looks so different "on screen", and admitted she feels sorry for her 23-year-old co-star.

She told the Mail on Sunday newspaper's You magazine: "I have a little less heat on me because I am so recognisable on screen, thank goodness.

"I can't imagine what it's like for Jennifer Lawrence every day. Being that young, I just don't know how she copes with all the attention."

While her co-star has shot to fame at a young age Elizabeth, 39, is grateful for her own "slow and steady" rise to the top.

She explained: "I have had 'moments' before, but they haven't changed my life dramatically.

"I am very much a 'slow and steady wins the race' kind of person."

Jennifer has spoke about dealing with fame in the past, and insisted she has constantly made sure she's stayed grounded.

She previously said: "I act like an old woman; I'm in bed by 11pm at the latest.

"I prefer that to hanging around Hollywood parties at night ... I still live in the same three-bedroom apartment I had when I moved to LA six years ago.

"I still look for bargains in the supermarket. When I go somewhere these days I let a valet park my car. That costs $6!"
