Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she has decided to star in horror movie 'House at the End of the Street' in order to overcome her fear of scary films.

The 'Hunger Games' star made a unusual career choice by agreeing to appear in the new film so that she could try and beat her aversion to the genre, reported Femalefirst. "In real life I'm terrified of horror movie.

If I want to watch one, I have to plan out the next three months of my life, because I'll know I'm going to be afraid of everything - afraid of the dark, afraid of my own shadow. "I thought if I had the experience of actually being in one it would make me less afraid seeing them.

I'll have to see how that one works out," she said. The 22-year-old actress has recently changed her hair to a much darker colour for the next installment in the "The Hunger Games" franchise.

"The colour is hard for me to get used to because I've always been blonde. If I wake up in the middle of the night to pee and catch myself in the mirror, I think, 'Whoa! Who's that?' I scare myself."
