Hunger Gamescast Then
Once upon a time, way back in 2012, Jennifer Lawrence , Josh Hutcherson , and Liam Hemsworth took the red carpet at the star-studded premiere of their first ' Hunger Games ' movie. JLaw was right at the cusp of superstardom.
Three years, four movies and one fierce pixie cut later, the holy trio celebrated the final chapter of the mega-successful franchise, ' The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -- Part 2 ,' at the Los Angeles premiere earlier this week.
When you think about, not much time has passed, but then again, so much has changed in three years. Lawrence won her first Academy Award and became America's fart joke-making sweetheart. Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, his date to the first-ever 'Hunger Games' premiere, split in 2013. And Hutcherson, well, he's still making spit bubbles with his tongue , so we guess everything is still pretty much the same for bae.
In honor of the trio's final premiere press tour (SOB), here's how the cast of the franchise has changed over the years:

Back in 2012, the Girl on Fire had bangs! And she didn't even have an Oscar. Weird.

Aside from a hair mishap at the 'Mockingjay -- Part 1' premiere, the younger Hemsworth is just as handsome now as he was then.

It took bae a few years, but he finally got that 5 o'clock shadow, and we are FEELING IT.

Work that trucker hat, Woody. WERK IT. We have to admit his style game is really on point in 2015.

we've literally watched Willow grow up in front of our eyes in 'The Hunger Games' franchise. And she's turned into quite a fashionista.

Once a queen, always a queen.
- Jenna Malone Getty(3)
Three premieres and three different hair colors later, Jenna has finally settle for a color that we can only assume was inspired by Katniss.

After realizing that blazing orange was a little too girl-on-fire for a 'Hunger Games' carpet, Elizabeth has had fun playing with all different kinds of patterns and textures. How very Effie of her.

A good scarf can go a long way. Thanks, Snow.
