Jennifer Lawrence Looks Like Young Meryl Streep?

Meryl Streep Jennifer Lawrence
Sooo I was re-watching The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and had an epiphany during the part where Katniss/Jennifer Lawrence gets knocked on her ass and sees the force field open…

She looks a bit like a young Meryl Streep (and Jewel, of course). She’s also been compared to Helen Mirren, another actress who, like Streep, has aged beautifully.  Continue reading “Jennifer Lawrence Looks Like Young Meryl Streep?”

‘Hunger Games’ Stars Talk Camel Toes and Pee

As most of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire takes place in an island environment and was filmed in Hawaii, the stars had to wear form-fitting wetsuits which they peed in on the regular.

Fortunately for Jennifer Lawrence, Jenna Malone and the like, the wetsuits did not show all their ladybits ala “Oops!…I Did It Again” or Miley and Iggy Azalea at the EMAs.

“I was surprised at how little camel toe problem there was,” Lawrence told E!. “I was expecting a lot more.”

“They actually were pretty comfortable once we found you can actually pee through them– just go into the ocean and take care of your business,” Katniss’ fictional partner in one-sided romance, Josh Hutcherson, said of the suits.

WATCH: Final ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ Trailer

In the third and final trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which hits theaters November 22, we see Katniss attempting to escape from the monkey island that is entirely controlled by disapproving Capital watchdogs. THE SUSPENSE, THE SUSPENSE… oh wait, I read the book.

The Best/Worst Halloween Costumes Of 2012

I love Halloween for the candy corn, roasted pumpkin seeds, and horror movies even though lately I’ve come to expect only disappointing Paranormal Activity and Saw sequels.

October is national Bullying Awareness Month, so I urge you to not throw rubber insulin needles at the 4,000 people who will incur diabetes on this day, mostly because one of them could be me.

I’m not wondering what I should dress up as this year, because I’ve been interested in avoiding attention-drawing activities ever since I was a wallflower egg hiding from aggressive fist-pumping sperm in my mother’s fallopian tubes.

Jena Malone To Fill Johanna Mason’s Shoes In ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’

Jena Malone, one of my favorite indie actresses, has a confirmed place in the sequel to Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson’s The Hunger Games, which made over $152 million dollars in its opening weekend.

She is set to play the complicated former victor Johanna Mason who, with Katniss, Peeta and the still not-cast Finnick Odair, is thrust into the 75th Hunger Games where former winners are chosen to fight for their lives again.

Many websites would have you believe that Malone is best known for her “work” in Zack Snyder’s disastrous Sucker Punch…  Continue reading “Jena Malone To Fill Johanna Mason’s Shoes In ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’”

Who Is Best Suited To Play Finnick In ‘Catching Fire?’

There’s been a lot of talk about casting for Catching Fire, (renamed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire as to not confuse theater-goers), the sequel to one of the biggest blockbusters of all time.

One of the biggest roles is Finnick Odair – the muscular, reddish brown-haired, green-eyed, former victor (and Capital prostitute-by-force) who wields a trident and swims like Michael Phelps.  Continue reading “Who Is Best Suited To Play Finnick In ‘Catching Fire?’”

Try Calling Jennifer Lawrence Fat Now

Jennifer Lawrence was an entity in her own right before nowHer Academy Award nomination for Winter’s Bone alone caught the public’s eye, then X-Men: First Class which I’m sure will have a prequel-sequel of its own, seemed like the icing on the cake.

Throw in her actual role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games and you have to deduct that her career is already bigger than actresses who put their foot in the door decades ago.

Anytime someone gets this kind of recognition, people want to find someone to nitpick about. Sometimes it’s warranted or based in truth and SOMETIMES it’s a complete load of turkey crap.

In the case of those-who-must-not-be-named…aka anyone who calls Jennifer Lawrence “Fatniss Everdeen” and goes on about how she’s too big to play a starving character – you are what lit Charlie Sheen’s “troll” fuse.  Continue reading “Try Calling Jennifer Lawrence Fat Now”

I Hope You Don’t Frighten Easily, Here’s Elizabeth Banks In ‘The Hunger Games’

 I didn’t know that creepy George-Washington-with-a-vagina woman who says “PRIMROSE EVERDEEN” in The Hunger Games trailer was Elizabeth Banks until I saw interview/clip confirmation on some talk show.

I’ve been waking up screaming the words “I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE” not even knowing that Elizabeth Banks, the crazy cute nympho from The 40-Year-Old Virgin, was the one giving me nightmares.

‘The Hunger Games’ Comes In 3rd On Opening Weekend List

Jennifer Lawrence and her bow and arrow came in third on the all-time box office opening weekend records, beating out all three Twilight movies and every Harry Potter movie besides the final one, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.

The Hunger Games raked in $155 million dollars and is the only non-sequel in the top ten besides Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland. I still haven’t seen the movie because I didn’t read the books yet.

Also, as a chili-loving ‘Merican I was disappointed when I found out that it wasn’t about an elaborate eating competition, or cannibalism. Is it about cannibalism? If so, I’ll go, but only if Elizabeth Banks and Woody Harrelson eat Liam Hemsworth.
