Sam Claflin talks about his Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence and his wife Laura Haddock in a new Glamour UK cover interview.

“Getting married was easily one of the greatest achievements of the past 12 months,” he tells the outlet. “To have a wife with such wondrous, creative imagination, who planned every inch of it, made the day all the more special.”

He adds, “Every five seconds I find myself falling harder and deeper in love with her.”

Claflin opens up about the backlash he faced when cast as Finnick Odair in the Hunger Games movies.

“I couldn’t help but come across comments on my casting,” says the actor. “They were just everywhere. I started the process thinking I was going to have to have serious surgery to make everyone happy. With a young Brad Pitt’s face, Zac Efron’s abs, Dwayne Johnson’s pecs, and Channing Tatum’s left calf!”

He goes on to say, “But it’s impossible to please everyone. I trusted the team that brought you Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss. They had their reasons for picking me and I worked my butt off to prove to any doubters that I was the man for the job.”

As for Lawrence, Claflin is just as impressed as everyone else.

“She’s this young, talented klutz who has won an Oscar at such a young age and has the entire world loving her,” he tells the magazine. “But she deserves every bit of praise she’s received.”

He continues, “I can safely say that she genuinely hasn’t and never will let any of it go to her head. She’s an inspiration to me as much as everyone else and I’ve loved having the opportunity to work with her.”
