After a huge opening weekend for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, it seems Willow Shields’ days of hobnobbing with A-listers are far from over.

While taking EW‘s Pop Culture Personality Test, Shields—who plays Primrose Everdeen, the younger sister of Jennifer Lawrence’s heroine Katniss—recalled having a fan-girly run-in with Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy at San Diego Comic-Con. There was even a little danger involved.

Watch the video below to find out out what made Shields’ heart race (other than the X-Men stars), then read on for a full transcript and more of Shields’ insights on Prim’s beefed-up part in the new film. (Warning for those who haven’t seen the third Hunger Games installment: Stop reading now if you don’t want to know details from Mockingjay — Part 1.)

Stephen Merchant has a tip for watching sex scenes with your parents

Stephen-Merchant

Stuart, the single Brit looking for love in Los Angeles—or, more accurately, a makeout session with a model— returns to HBO Saturday night with the premiere of Hello Ladies: The Movie. To celebrate the conclusion of last year’s hilarious one-season wonder, we gave star/cowriter/director Stephen Merchant a special romance-themed version of our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below to find who was his first celebrity crush, what song puts him in the mood (and why you never want to put your iPod on shuffle), which movie sex scene made him uncomfortable, and what he considers to be a relationship deal-breaker.

Why 'Shrek' scared 'Walking Dead' star Chad L. Coleman

Chad-L-Coleman

The great thing about having The Walking Dead cast members stop by when you’re not pressing them for spoilers is they’re happy to tell you anything else you’d like to know.

Case in point: Chad L. Coleman (Tyreese), who took our Pop Culture Personality Test and named the movie that scared him even though it wasn’t supposed to (Shrek), the movie he wishes he could watch again for the first time (A Soldier’s Story), and the movie he almost walked out of (Tyler Perry’s The Family That Preys).

And, really proving our point, he also serenaded us with some Rihanna. Watch the video below.

But just in case you need more proof, we sat Colter down for our Pop Culture Personality Test, where he talked about his love of Danica McKellar, his “library” of favorite movie sex scenes, and more.

Cory Michael Smith on 'Olive Kitteridge,' the celebrity autograph he still has

Cory-Michael-Smith-PCPT

For fans of Gotham, Cory Michael Smith is known as Edward Nygma, but on Sunday night, he will set aside his riddles to appear in a new miniseries from HBO titled Olive Kitteridge.

In the four-part miniseries, based on the book by the same name, Frances McDormand stars at the title character. The series tells the story of her life, her relationship with her husband (Richard Jenkins), and her interactions with others in her small town, all spanning over 25 years. And in part two of the miniseries, viewers will meet Kevin Coulson, Smith’s character. READ FULL STORY

'Constantine' star Matt Ryan is a super binge watcher

The premiere of Constantine (Oct. 24 at 10 p.m. ET on NBC) will introduce many viewers to Welsh-born actor Matt Ryan, who stars as the titular demon hunter and master of the occult made famous in DC Comics’ Hellblazer series. But when Ryan stopped by EW, we got a head start. We learned he uses classical music to get into character (Schoenberg is great for getting into those dark places, he says). He had been reading the Hellblazer comic books before he went to bed, but he found himself having strange dreams, so now he unwinds by putting on nature programs instead . He is competitive when he’s playing the FIFA video game but less so when it comes to Call of Duty. “The thing is with Call of Duty, I don’t have enough time to become so good at it, so if I go and play online, I’m just getting my ass kicked by 12-year-old kids,” he says. And despite the fact that he films Constantine in Atlanta, the same city where his best mate Joseph Morgan shoots The Originals, they rarely get to see one another. (The two met in college and bonded over a shared love of genre films. They’ve costarred in 2013’s Armistice, which falls into that category, and  in 500 Miles North, which should be released next year and centers on two estranged brothers on a road trip to scatter their father’s ashes and recreate childhood memories to secure their inheritance.)

As for Ryan’s fascination with the dark side, he traces it back to childhood camping trips and the requisite scary stories that accompanied them. None of them quite prepared him for Constantine. “I feel sometimes that the writers sit in the office in LA going, ‘What can we do to Matt Ryan?’ I’ve been naked covered in blood, flung around the place doing exorcisms,” he says. At least that means our Pop Culture Personality Test was a piece of cake. Watch the video and read the transcript below.  READ FULL STORY

Watch the video and read the transcript below for that story and more.
