Jennifer Lawrence opened up to Vanity Fair about her experience in the wake of the theft and release of her nude photos, telling the magazine: “It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime.” READ FULL STORY

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 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.
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.
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
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
Filming a dystopian survival story is no picnic. So the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay took a little vacay from shooting in Paris to get in some sun — and photo ops — at the Cannes Film Festival on Saturday.
Stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, Julianne Moore, Donald Sutherland, and director Francis Lawrence shed the somber battle gear for some beachside glamour. Take a look: READ FULL STORY
Thursday night, Jimmy Fallon did what many of us aspire to do one day: Play a silly game with Jennifer Lawrence.
The X-Men star went on The Tonight Show for a round of Box of Lies, a game first played by Fallon and Tina Fey last year. Here’s how it works: Lawrence and Fallon sit across from each other with a divider between them. There’s a hole carved out so they can see each other’s faces. One person chooses a box, which contains a mystery item, and tells the other either what she’s holding or a lie. It’s up to the opponent to guess whether the speaker is lying. For example: Fallon told Lawrence he had a Backstreet Boys doll when really he had an Uncle Jesse doll. Then he made out with the box, which is obviously what you do when you have an Uncle Jesse doll in your possession.
The latest spring trend is here, and Jennifer Lawrence is rockin’ it: Comforter-like hooded capes.
Buzzfeed got ahold of some photos from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay set, featuring Lawrence and co-star Liam Hemsworth decked out in intense coats to hide their costumes. Cressida (Natalie Dormer) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) also appear in the photos; sadly, they’re not donning the ominous/hilarious capes. READ FULL STORY
Even without Mystique’s makeup or Katniss’ bow and arrow, Jennifer Lawrence is powerful.
The Oscar winner covers the new issue of Marie Claire, and her accompanying profile (available to read online) is full of real talk about the difficulties of being everyone’s imaginary best friend.
“Nobody can stay beloved forever,” Lawrence explains. “I never believed it, the whole time. I was like, just wait: People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere; I’m way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I’m really hyper, most likely because I’ve been drinking, and I can’t not photo-bomb somebody if it’s a good opportunity. But it’s something I always tell myself: ‘You need to calm the f— down. You don’t want to constantly be a GIF.'” READ FULL STORY
