“That time of the month? Yeah, Josh gets periods. It’s weird,” she jokes, then regretting her comment. “I’m so hyper; I need to calm down. I just met Taylor Swift and I’m still freaking out. [Josh] needs to answer the questions ’cause I’m still geeking out.”read more

To keep us excited (and drooling), Entertainment Weekly has released more stills from The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. These reveal our first looks at Katniss and Peeta on the Victory Tour and Gale in District 12.
”These are kids growing up in war who physically, emotionally can’t love somebody,” says Jennifer Lawrence about the uncomfortable triangle between District 12′s battle-weary Katniss, Peeta, and her childhood friend Gale that began in The Hunger Games. ”Katniss thinks she can’t have a crush on a boy because she’s worried about survival every single day. And she can’t be a normal 16-year-old meeting her friend out in the woods and practicing kissing because that’s not the world that they live in.”
”Jen and Liam have amazing chemistry,” says director Francis Lawrence of his young stars. ”They have a nice moment right before Katniss is reaped that is the very first thing we shot. And then when Gale has been brought in from the whipping, that’s another really nice moment they have alone.” ”This the book where you have to understand the pull Katniss feels to both Peeta and Gale,” say producer Nina Jacobson.
Update!!! More stills have been released!

Josh Horowitz has done it again. What is more fun than seeing our favorite actors on MTV’s After Hours? Well, we recently saw a teaser of a new After Hours interview with Josh Hutcherson and now the actual episode has been revealed. This time, Josh Hutcherson displays his extreme sensitive side, discussing how many times he cries each day, his reaction to a dog’s accident, cutting in line, and give words of encouragement to women. You don’t want to miss this hilarious video!
The best part of this video is that it doesn’t seem too far off from Josh’s actual personality. But let us know what you think: is he playing a role or just exaggerating the truth? Did you have a favorite part? We’d love to hear what you think in the comments!

When Catching Fire set photos leaked last week from Hawaii, one point of debate revolved around a few of the photos that seemed to show Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) getting in a tussle with another “tribute” in the water. Many believed it to be Finnick (Sam Claflin) at first, but later began to realize that perhaps it was his stunt double. A few other fans voiced their opinion that they were convinced it was the District 10 Tribute, Jackson Spidell who was in the water fighting with Josh. Now, thanks to a twitter confirmation from the District 10 female tribute, Tiffany Waxler we now know that they are one in the same. Jackson Spidell plays both the role of the District 10 Male Victor AND is Sam Claflin’s (Finnick) Stunt Double in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!
Case Closed on this one!
