Fans who are anxious to get their hands on anything regarding Hunger Games: Catching Fire are no doubt looking forward to the new issue of Entertainment Weekly.
The magazine scored the first look at Katniss and Finnick complete with weaponry, which they featured on an upcoming cover. According to the publication’s website, the Hunger Games-themed issue is slated to hit newsstands on January 11.
Sam Claflin, who portrays Finnick Odair from District Four in Catching Fire, explained to the magazine that the scariest moment during filming arrived when it was time to shoot the “sugar cube” sequence.
Clafin told the EW:
“[It was] the scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’ “
Although Jennifer Lawrence is in two incredibly successful Hollywood franchises — The Hunger Games and X-Men — the actress seems to be keeping a level head about her career. She told the magazine that understanding how the industry works keeps her grounded.
“I’m so aware of all the b.s. that surrounds Hollywood and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they’re curing cancer and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it. So I go in the exact opposite direction and end up saying something like ‘I’m pregnant!’ when I’m in two franchises.”
The actress made similar comments during a recent Vanity Fair interview. The media quickly picked up on a statement made by Lawrence in which she declared acting to be “stupid.” However, there is a bit more to the quote than some have made out.
Jennifer Lawrence told the magazine:
“On the first movie I met this girl [via Make-a-Wish], and I can’t tell this story without crying. She had scars all over her body—burns—and she was telling me she was always so ashamed of the way she looked and she was so embarrassed, and now she has the nickname the Girl on Fire, but she loves it and wears it proudly. It gives her confidence. That was the first time in my entire career that I actually felt like there was a point in this. Not to sound rude, but it is stupid. Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’ “
