There is no doubt every Hunger Games fan gave a little squee when Haymitch and Effie kissed at the end of Mockingjay Part 2. Elizabeth Banks talked to the Huffington Post about that special kiss and how her and Woody planned it out:
“We planned that moment. Woody [Harrelson] and I went into that moment, that wasn’t written, we improv’d that,” said Banks. “We decided to do it, and the director was like, ‘I love it. Let’s try it again.’ We also did it without a kiss, and we let him decide in the editing room, and we love that he kept it.”
OK, obviously we wanted to talk about this all day, so we asked Banks if fans were supposed to pick up on romantic feelings between the pair. She laughed, “I hope so.”
“I think they definitely did,” she continued, “Yeah, I think they have a long shared history and neither one of them is going to the altar anytime soon, so for me it’s just about [how] they have a really deep connection.”
Jennifer Lawrence is featured on the cover of February’s issue of Glamour magazine. Inside, Jennifer gave an interview where she talked very candidly about fame, Joy, growing up in Kentucky and moving to New York as a teenager, Amy Schumer, speaking out on women’s issues, and other random topics from Planned Parenthood to social media.
Jennifer Lawrence and Eddie Redmayne recently featured on the New Years Eve special of The Graham Norton Show. The two discussed a number of topics including winning awards and early modelling careers.
Jennifer Lawrence was the guest on an episode of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live this week. The show is light hearted and fun with host Andy Cohen usually playing games with guests. During Jennifer’s episode, she played a game Plead the Fifth where Andy asked her some questions to see if she would answer truthfully to them. Jennifer made some interesting reveals including kissing our own Liam Hemsworth off screen.
There are several little clips available on their website and YouTube channel but the full episode is not available yet.
By now, we’re all familiar with Jennifer Lawrence and her singing abilities. We’ve heard all there is to hear from The Hunger Games, but it would appear that her singing doesn’t stop there. You can listen to Jennifer and co-star Edgar Ramirez sing the song “Something Stupid” from the upcoming movie, Joy. She insists she can’t sing, but we have to disagree! Take a listen below.
