"One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, 'I'm not letting them take my stuff. I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car," she told Vanity Fair's February 2013 issue.

"I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I'm walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, 'Heyyy, how you doin'?'" she recalled.

Luckily, the 22-year-old didn't have to fire off any shots - something that disappointed her friends.

"They were like, 'We've got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!' That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!" she continued.

The actress, who is garnering award season buzz for her role in "Silver Lining Playbook," isn't afraid to call out the thing that has made her a star.

"Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid," the actress told the mag "Everybody's like, 'How can you remain with a level head?' And I'm like, 'Why would I ever get cocky? I'm not saving anybody's life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I'm making movies. It's stupid.'"
