Jennifer Lawrence tells Elizabeth Banks 'Barbie Girl' is the soundtrack to her life

Ask-a-Badass.jpg

This week, fulfilling every living human’s wish to hang out with Jennifer Lawrence and Elizabeth Banks at the same time, Lawrence appeared on Banks’ web series, “Ask a Badass,” and the two Hunger Games stars spent five minutes going back and forth about hair, music—and how Lawrence is man-like.

“You’re a guys’ girl,” Banks tells Lawrence. “You basically have a penis.” Lawrence agrees, but right after, she claims that Aqua’s “Barbie Girl” is the soundtrack to her life. “That’s how I feel like, as an actress, my job, it just depends on what outfit I’m wearing, you know?” Lawrence says. “I wear heels all day, I get Barbie feet.”

Jennifer Lawrence and Stephen Colbert plan to fight crime together

At this point, Jennifer Lawrence knows how to work a talk show. She sang Christmas carols with Letterman, for goodness’ sake. But her appearance on The Colbert Report was less about what she said (or sang) and more about just having some fun with Stephen Colbert.

During the interview, Lawrence and Colbert decide to become vigilantes; they plan out her future downward spiral, which won’t involve crystal meth because it’s bad for the skin; and they get to the origin of her “J-Law” nickname.

And she loves it.

Jennifer Lawrence carols, walks off, and hosts Letterman

David Letterman, as he’s done in the past, let Jennifer Lawrence go full J-Law on his show last night. They discussed her profane friend, colonics, a demon, and bowling. They even sang. (Horribly.) Then they walked off the set. Then she took to the host’s desk. It was a delightful mess.  READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lawrence vows that she will never join Twitter

Sorry, Tumblr hordes: Don’t expect to see Katniss Everdeen playing in your sandbox anytime soon.

In an interview with her Hunger Games co-stars on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw, Jennifer Lawrence vowed that she would never join Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram. “I’m not very good on phone or technology. I cannot really keep up with emails. So the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me,” she told Grimshaw. “I’ll never get Twitter. If you ever see a Facebook or Instagram or Twitter that says it’s me, it’s not me.” READ FULL STORY

Fans turn Katniss into Batniss

One of the recent posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 made Katniss look a little bit like Batman, what with her sleek, black armor. Well, Hunger Games star Elizabeth Banks thought so too, and inspired the fansite QuarterQuell.org to take the comparison to the next level. The result? A series of posters for The Dark Katniss Rises, which find Katniss and Hunger Games imagery embedded in posters for Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight films. The results? Well, I’d watch this movie.

Jennifer Lawrence will co-chair the Met Gala

Jennifer Lawrence once said, “I really would not call myself a fashion icon. I would call myself somebody who gets dressed by professionals. [It’s like], ‘Dance, monkey, dance’ right on the red carpet.’ I would call me more of a monkey.” But even if she hasn’t always embraced fashion, the fashion world has certainly embraced her: the star will be one of the co-chairs of this year’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit.

Sandra Bullock tops 'Forbes' list of highest-paid actresses

For actors, the secret to big earnings usually lies in a prime position in a big franchise. But as Sandra Bullock proved this year, sometimes a one-off role does just as well.

The Gravity star topped Forbes’s list of Hollywood’s highest-paid actresses this year with an estimated $51 million in earnings between June 2013 and June 2014, much of it from the sci-fi film, which made $716 million at the global box office and took home seven Academy Awards.

'Hunger Games' touring exhibit in the works, theme park still a possibility

It may be a while before anyone gets the chance to test their archery skills at a Hunger Games-inspired theme park, but by next summer, fans will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a touring exhibition dedicated to the popular franchise.

During a conference call discussing Lionsgate’s fourth-quarter earnings on Friday, studio CEO Jon Feltheimer announced the first step in extending the brand beyond the screen is to launch The Hunger Games: The Exhibition, set to trek across the U.S. in summer 2015. The traveling museum will feature costumes, props, and other elements from the Hunger Games universe.

Theme park creator Thinkwell Group has been tapped to spearhead the project and develop other extensions of the Jennifer Lawrence-led franchise — including additional theme park attractions and other location-based entertainment opportunities. READ FULL STORY

Jennifer Lawrence admits she threw up at Oscars afterparty -- VIDEO

Let’s take a moment to celebrate Jennifer Lawrence’s actual best friend, you a woman named Laura Simpson.

Lawrence was on Late Night with Seth Meyers Wednesday, promoting X-Men: Days of Future Past. Of course, Meyers immediately wanted scoop from her most recent Oscars night. Lawrence charmingly obliged, and explained that her BFF Simpson demanded to be her date to the ceremony this time around — and apparently, Simpson is quite the bad influence on the Oscar-winning leading lady.

Lawrence said that Simpson encouraged her to drink — a lot — and yell at an amazing-smelling Brad Pitt. The night culminated with Lawrence vomiting on the steps of a fancy-pants, Madonna-hosted after-party. The kicker? Miley Cyrus saw the scene play out — and told Lawrence to get it together.

Brief moment of humiliation in exchange for a party anecdote she’ll be telling forever? Sounds like a deal: READ FULL STORY
