Lenny Kravitz has compared his Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence to three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep.

Kravitz – who plays Cinna in The Hunger Games - suggested that Lawrence has the talent to become one of the all-time great actresses.

"I think that Jennifer Lawrence is just an amazing actress… [I've] been watching her for a number of years and I just think she's got so much talent," the 'American Woman' singer said, according to Flicks and Bits.

Kravitz continued: "To me, she's like a young Meryl Streep, she's got a lot of range and people are going to see a lot coming from her. She is the character, from the moment I arrived on set, she just embodied Katniss's spirit."

Lawrence has already earned several top acting accolades in her short career. She was nominated for a 'Best Actress' Oscar for the 2010 film Winter's Bone, which also netted her the National Board of Review's 'Breakthrough Performance' honour.

She recently defended the violence in The Hunger Games, insisting that the battle scenes are "the heart of the movie".

The Hunger Games opens on March 23 in US and UK cinemas.
