It’s no surprise Jennifer is receiving this tribute because she is such a sweetie! Many know about Jennifer’s special bond to Andy Stuck who has down syndrome. On April 26th Jennifer will receive a special tribute from the Down Syndrome of Louisville Lifelong Learning Center.
The Derby Chronicle report Jennifer Lawrence will receive a special tribute at an event for the Down Syndrome of Louisville Lifelong Learning Center in the actress’ hometown of Louisville.
The Hunger Games star previously volunteered for the organisation and she still remains close to former school friend Andy Stuck who has Down Syndrome. It’s widely reported that she regularly visits her friend whenever she goes home and gives him signed movie posters.
The charity will pay tribute to Jennifer Lawrence at the Mint Jubilee Gala on 26 April that is set to be an evening of dinner and dancing with proceeds going to the charity, Down Syndrome of Louisville.
Unfortunately Jennifer Lawrence won’t be able to attend but her brother, Blaine, will accept the award on her behalf.

To add to the many things that make this past year one of Jennifer Lawrence’s best, the young actress has just had another big accomplishment in her career. TIME Magazine has just released their annual list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World, and Jennifer not only has made the list, but she will also be featured on one of seven covers of the special issue.
People also making the list include Barack Obama, Daniel Day-Lewis, Frank Ocean, and Kate Middleton, with categories including Titans, Pioneers, Leaders, and Icons. The Artists category, in which Jennifer is featured, includes a piece on Jennifer written by Academy Award winner, Jodie Foster.
You’ll remember where you were when you first felt it, how you were stuck to one spot like a small animal considering its end. The Jennifer Lawrence Stare. It cuts a searing swath in your gut. A reckoning. I remember going to the cutting rooms of Winter’s Bone. I thought, Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be. All of those painful secrets in her face, the feeling that there’s some terrible past that’s left impossibly angled bone and weariness in its wake. She’s worn from the pain of living — something none of her characters would ever have the energy to articulate. It’s just part of her, like skin and muscle. The good news is that Jen, her good-humored, ballsy, free-spirited alter ego with the husky voice and a propensity for junk food … Jen, the spritely tomboy from Kentucky — that Jen’s got it together. A hoot. A gem. A gem with a killer stare.
We want to congratulate Jennifer on the huge accomplishment, and can’t wait for even more great things to come!

Our pals over at HITFIX have complied a list of the 10 best moments from the Catching Fire trailer!
Katniss takes chargeThere’s a reason Katniss is such a beloved heroine: because she’s not one to back down from a fight, and will stop at nothing to protect the people she loves. Case in point: the moment when she steps in to try and save Gale from a good ol’-fashioned whip beating. Simply put, it’s good to see our girl back in action.
‘Go ahead’As delivered by the always-convincing Jennifer Lawrence, the line – which comes as Katniss finds herself literally staring down the barrel of a gun – is an intriguing mixture of “I dare you” audaciousness and heart-tugging resignation. Now that’s what we call acting.

Alan Ritchson Spoke to E! Online about how co-star Sam Claflin broke his hand during a Catching Fire rehearsal. All I have to say is OUCH!
“Sam got hurt the worst,” Alan Ritchson, who plays Gloss in Catching Fire, told me at the MTV Movie Awards. “He broke his hand doing a stunt.”
Don’t look for footage of the mishap in a DVD extra, though. “It was in rehearsal, so we weren’t even shooting,” Ritchson said. “He broke it on the stunt guy, warming up. I was standing right next to him. It was tough to watch.”
But, Ritchson said, Claflin “took it like a champ—he took it and kept moving.”

In an article from Variety, Elizabeth Banks is quoted in saying Catching Fire will stay true to the books! This is my favorite book in the Trilogy so I cannot wait to see how Francis Lawrence transforms the book into a movie!
These honors also go to Elizabeth Banks (Excellence in Acting), who returns as Effie Trinket in “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.” She promises, “No huge surprises. Effie has a heart that grows multiple sizes. We’re true to the book. Hopefully we’re delivering to the fans. That’s what they want.” Of course, “I spent a lot of time in the hair and makeup trailer, and every day we had that ‘ah-ha’ moment.”
The actress is filming “Walk of Shame,” which refers to what happens after a one-night stand. Banks plays a newscaster. “It’s a comment on sensationalism, and we bring that back around on the media,” she says.
