Just a little reminder that Jennifer Lawrence’s House at the End of the Street and Woody Harrelson’s Game Change releases on DVD today! To order, check out the links below.
Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Elisabeth Shue) and her daughter Elissa (Jennifer Lawrence) find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared – leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot), as the sole survivor. Against Sarah’s wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan – and the closer they get, the deeper they’re all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.
Game Change is a searing, behind-the-scenes look at John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, from the decision to select Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as McCain’s running mate to the ticket’s ultimate defeat in the general election just sixty days later. Told primarily through the eyes of senior McCain strategist Steve Schmidt, who originally championed Palin and later came to regret the choice, Game Change pulls back the curtain on the intense human drama surrounding the McCain team, the critical decisions made behind closed doors and how the choice was made to bring Palin on the ticket. The film examines how we choose our leaders by offering a unique glimpse into the inner workings of an historic campaign.

Congrats to Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks for making Men’s Health 100 hottest women of 2013!
4. Jennifer Lawrence
Ned Beatty got the wrong end of the Appalachian woods in Deliverance. Had he just prowled a little further into the hillside, he might have landed instead in the arms of this crossbow-wielding, squirrel-eating hourglass. An international superstar thanks to The Hunger Games, Oscar-nominated for Winter’s Bone, and buck-naked and blue for X Men: First Class, Lawrence is the world’s greatest reason to get lost in the wilderness.
34. Elizabeth Banks
In Hollywood, actresses typically slow down as they approach 40. Not so with Banks, who at 38 is hotter than ever, with a staggering eight movies planned through 2014, including the upcoming Hunger Games sequel and the crime thriller Every Secret Thing, in which she stars alongside fellow ageless hottie Diane Lane.

It might not be an Oscar, but it’s still an award! Every year, IGN closes out the year by naming the best in video games, television, and of course, movies. One of the categories is Best Movie Actress, and our very own Jennifer Lawrence has won the award!
And in The Hunger Games, Lawrence does a wonderful job of showing the moments when Katniss feels her most vulnerable, while still retaining her inner strength. Katniss is the anti-Bella Swan; she’s an independent and fierce young woman who is not defined by (or obsessed with) the men in her life.
IGN also honors Lawrence’s performance in Silver Linings Playbook, which she was equally as amazing in. There is a lot of buzz around Jennifer this awards season, so it’ll be exciting to see what else she wins!

Earlier this week, we got our first look at Jennifer Lawrence’s cover shoot for the February issue of Vanity Fair magazine, now VF has handed out a few more tidbits from the article that accompanies the steamy photos.
On using her newly learned Katniss skills for self-defense:
“One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, ‘I’m not letting them take my stuff. I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I’m walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin’?'” Lawrence’s friends were disappointed by the anticlimactic outcome of the event, the actress tells Windolf: “They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!”
On acting and how she stays grounded:
“Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid,” Lawrence says. “Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’
On the difference between Hunger Games director Gary Ross and Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence:
“They’re almost polar opposites,” Lawrence said of the two directors, being quick to add, “and both are completely perfect for these movies. Francis is kind of genius at building different worlds and transporting you into another world. The vibe on set is much quieter. Gary is very energetic. Francis is very laid-back and very calm.”
On the difference between filming Catching Fire and Winter’s Bone:
“The vibe on [Winter’s Bone] set was exactly what makes me love indies. The only reason we were all out there in the freezing cold was because we loved the project. I love that feeling, that desperate, almost pathetic feeling of ‘Are we actually going to be able to pull this off?’”
Also check out the BTS video from Jennifer’s Vanity Fair shoot:
Adding to her collection of magazine covers, Jennifer Lawrence’s photographs for Vanity Fair’s February 2013 edition were just released.
Looking as amazing as ever, Jennifer discussed her future in the film industry–
“I love filmmaking. I love acting but I don’t feel married to just being in front of the camera.”
–as well as plans (or attempts!) to settle down.
“I’m a nomad. I just looked in New York and I was looking in LA and I can’t figure out where I want to live.”
