  • A child actress who made her film debut as the star of Anjelica Huston's 1996 adaptation of Dorothy Allison's Bastard out of Carolina, Jena Malone has appeared in films ranging from Contact (1997), in which she played the younger version of Jodie Foster's character, to Stepmom (1998), which featured her as one of Susan Sarandon's children. A native of Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where she was born November 21, 1984, Malone was influenced to become an actress by her mother, who was active in community theatre. After persuading her mom to move to L.A., the aspiring actress began working in commercials and music videos. Following her debut in Bastard out of Carolina, she went on to do steady work, and in 2000, she starred in Christmas with J.D., which also featured Devon Sawa, Neve Campbell, and Christian Campbell. That same year, the young actress made headlines when she filed charges against her mother accusing her of squandering her earnings; the lawsuit resulted in Malone's legal emancipation from her mother, who was forbidden from interfering with her daughter's career and earnings. Coming out on the up side of the bitter family feud, Malone could next be seen in both the slightly surreal teen fantasy Donnie Darko and the bittersweet family drama Life as a House (both 2001). Following future appearances in The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys and The United States of Leland (both 2002), Malone would announce her intentions of studying photography at a northern California community college in the fall of 2002. She had a key role in The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys in 2002, and the next year had a cameo in Cold Mountain. In 2005 she was one of the younger sister in Joe Wright's Pride & Prejudice, and two years later she was the younger sister in Sean Penn's Into the Wild. She had a brief but memorable turn as the ex-girlfriend of a soldier in The Messenger, and in 2011 she was one of the kick-ass girls at the center of Sucker Punch. In 2012 she appeared in Hatfields & McCoys as one of the McCoy clan. In 2013, she joined the Hunger Games series as fan-favorite Johanna Mason, appearing in Catching Fire and Parts 1 and 2 of Mockingjay. Malone was cast as Barbara Gordon in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), but her scenes were ultimately cut in the editing room, and she only appeared in the home version of the film.

QUOTES FROM Jena Malone CHARACTERS

Johanna Mason
Now you're talkin'.
Johanna Mason
Ugh. My stylist is such an idiot. I'd love to put my axe in her face.
Johanna Mason
Everybody wants to sleep with you.
Glen
It's my one day off, and you gotta tear around here? Now just, just cool it, kid. You're a girl, not a racehorse.
Bone
(mimicking him) You're a girl, not a racehorse.
Bone
You're a girl, not a racehorse.
Glen
You little bitch! You little bitch! Come here!
Glen
I want you to try to be reasonable, girl. I want you to tell your mama. I want you to stop all this nonsense, before you make me really mad
Bone
I'd rather die than go back livin' with you!
Glen
I talked to Annie, you know, and she's comin' back. She promised. She said that she needs a little more time, time to make it up to you. She loves you more than I can understand. You know what your mama told me? She's not comin' home until you come home too. You're gonna have to tell her it's all right. You're gonna have to tell her that we'll be together, again?
Bone
No. I don't wanna live with you no more. I told mama that she can go back. I told her that she could. But I can't. I won't.
Glen
You won't? You won't live with me no more? You are still a child! You don't say what you do! I'm your daddy! I say what to do
Bone
No.
Glen
Bone, what are you doin' up here? How many times you gonna make me call you, girl?
Bone
I didn't hear you.
Glen
Didn't hear you? I've been callin' you for five minutes. Your mama needs your help down there.
Glen
Don't you sass me. Don't you dare sass me. You think just because your aunt died, you can talk to me like that? You're in my house, now. I am the boss of my house. Do you understand that?
Anney
Glen! Of all days, Jesus! Glen!
Glen
Annie! Annie!, let me handle this! Please, let me handle this!
Anney
No, Glen! No, Glen! Glen! Glen!

Bone
I don't know.
Anney
I think I am. I hope I am? Sometimes I just get so tired, you know? Sometimes I just want somebody strong to stand by me. To stay with me.

I'll stay with you.

I know you will, Bone.

Sweet Pea: Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.
