Aha! Related to English "famished"!

Could you also say "Eu sunt foame"? Which one do Romanians use the most

That is not correct.it is like you would be hunger.not you are hungry as in"I am literal hunger",which is definetly not correct

That said, people will allegorically say, "I am Hunger." in an allegorical sense. Sort of like saying, "he is Death Incarnate"...
