Exclusive: Jennifer Lawrence & Josh Hutcherson: There Was “No Need to Diet” For Hunger Games



Everyone’s favorite girl on fire is back… and were not talking about Alicia Keyes! Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katness Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and we sat down with her and Josh Hutcherson about the highly anticipated sequel, including how they prepped for the role.

“I tried to tone it down some,” revealed Hutcherson of his crazy eating habits. “But it doesn’t work for very long.”

“But, the movies are so activate it’s not necessary” added Lawrence.  “There really is no need to diet on these movies.”

But while they didn’t go to any extreme measures to prep for their roles, newcomers Sam Claflin & Jena Malone had a lot of work to do.

“It was tough,” admits Claflin.  “When I got the call to say I got an audition for this character … I typed the name Finnick Odair into Google and I was like ‘Oh God’ I’ve got a lot to prepare.  But before I was cast I read all three books in like 5 days.”

In the film, Malone and Claflin play previous hunger games winners who are thrown back into the games along with Katness and Peeta. Meanwhile, Lenny Kravitz who plays Cena and Elizabeth Banks who plays Effie try to keep Katness out of trouble, while also looking pretty stylish. Check out what they both had to say about their wardrobes.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is in theaters Novemer 22.

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
