    The year was 2012, and the first Hunger Games movie had just been released...

    Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, forever and always our flawless Girl on Fire.

    Here's J. Law all the way back in March 2012 at the European premiere of The Hunger Games, and here she is at The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 Hand and Footprint Ceremony on Oct. 31, 2015.

    Josh Hutcheron as Peeta Mellark, the sweetest baker in all 12 Districts.

    Here's Josh Hutcherson attending a screening of The Hunger Games in 2012, and here he is at the same Hand and Footprint Ceremony. The scruff is working.

    Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne, hottest BFF Panem has ever known.

    Here's Liam Hemsworth signing autographs at Barnes & Noble in 2012, and rocking thicker scruff at a press conference for The Dressmaker in September of this year. Those eyes. 😍
