As you may have spotted from our Instagram feed, Grazia's Josh Newis Smith was THRILLED to have the chance to meet legendary actress and style icon Julianne Moore when the 'Hunger Games Mockingjay' bandwagon rolled into London this week.

Julianne plays the president of District 13 in the filmand told us that she requested to star in the film after her kids became fans of the book. But, despite being one of the most fabulous dressers in the world, the actress is forced to wear a dowdy grey boilersuit. 'It's not a glamourous look but it was very comfortable!' she says.

It's the opposite when it comes to red carpet gowns, however. '9 times out of 10, I end up wearing something that's just beautiful and I can't move in it - I'm always swayed by beauty and not practicality! But it's a great problem to have'. Considering she's been showcasing gowns by the likes of Balenciaga and Louis Vuitton, we have to agree.

Of course, we also wanted to know what it's really like to work with Jennifer Lawrence. 'She's very fun, very relaxed - I think that's one of her great strengths as an actress is her ability to be relaxed when doing deep emotional work.'
