1The affection for both Magda and Mags is overwhelming in some ways. I mean, in the best kind of way. First of all, Sex and the City (1998) was so interesting to me because there were very sexy things in it. Ninety year old women would come up to me and say, "You know, I never mention the word 'sex' in my house, ever. But now, when Sex And The City is on, you can call me on the telephone and I won't answer." Again, it's the power of women and the clinging together for strength. I love that. With The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), it was my granddaughter who was my impetus to do the film. A long, long time ago, like a year before I got the part, a wonderful friend called me and said, "I just read this book called Catching Fire and you've got to do Mags." I said, "Oh, okay, right, sure." I didn't really think much about it. Then we fast forward and we're driving through Tuscany with my granddaughter, who is 15 years old, and she's reading the last book and she's crying and then she puts it down. She says, "Hey grandma, you should do Mags!" I said, "Oh honey, I've heard that before, I'm sure they are in production already." And then she did - and this is in Tuscany - a search on her phone, and said no-one had been cast. I don't know how she found that out, but then I called my agent. It was a joy.
