"I did not know we were going to have to make a speech," Lawrence quipped to the crowd on Saturday at the legendary Hollywood theater.

Movie fans will now be able to walk all over Jennifer Lawrence. 

The actress joined Hunger Games co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth for a ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in L.A. on Saturday, where they imprinted their hands and shoes in cement in a classic rite of Hollywood passage.

"I did not know we were going to have to make a speech," Lawrence, who plays Katniss, told the crowd. "We're very grateful — I think I can say that on behalf of everyone here. Anyway, Liam?" she playfully continued, quickly passing the buck to Hemsworth (Gale). Lawrence wore A.L.C.'s "Claudio" skirt and "Mathew" top, part of the spring 2016 collection.

"I'm honored to share it with you both," Hemsworth told his co-stars of the honor. "I love you both so much. You're my best friends, I love you. Let's just be friends forever." 

Hutcherson (Peeta) thanked the legions of loyal supporters of the Suzanne Collins-penned book series for their encouragement. "[Hunger Games fans] give us the energy to keep going, and we really appreciate it all," the actor said. "This means a lot to all of us."

Director Francis Lawrence's The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2, the final film in the saga, hits theaters Nov. 20.
