“The Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence stares hauntingly on the cover of Parade magazine. The actress, who recently graced the cover of Rolling Stone, discussed how “The Hunger Games” relates to the Kardashians in her accompanying Parade interview.
Lawrence said, “I was watching the Kardashian girl getting divorced, and that’s a tragedy for anyone. But they’re using it for entertainment, and we’re watching it. The books hold up a terrible kind of mirror: This is what our society could be like if we became desensitized to trauma and to each other’s pain.”

Neither an evil queen nor the son of Zeus were a match against the giant money-making monster that is “The Hunger Games.” Jennifer Lawrence’s powerhouse performance continues to dazzle as her film raked in $63.5 million this weekend, putting its domestic gross to date at over $250 million.
Jennifer Lawrence – “The Hunger Games”
As “The Hunger Games” continues to dominate Hollywood, it was only a matter of time before the blogsphere started popping up with stories about Jennifer Lawrence’s chances of nabbing an Oscar nomination (it’s never too early to start), and it looks like E! has kicked it off, pondering if Lawrence is the key to getting something the “Harry Potter” franchise couldn’t: a Best Actor Oscar.
Sam Worthington / Liam Neeson / Ralph Fiennes – “Wrath of the Titans”
The sequel to the 3D mythology adventurer “Clash of the Titans” returns with the 3D, the mythology, and stars Sam Worthington (as Perseus), Liam Neeson (as Zeus) and Ralph Fiennes (as Hades), but even the power of the Gods were no match for “Games” as it came in second with over $34.5 million. The reviews for “Wrath” were stronger than they were for “Clash,” but EW.com questions if Worthington has what it takes to really be an action star. For Neeson, however, his action star status is well established. And it will continue in the summer and fall as he stars in the blockbusters “Battleship,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and will return for “Taken 2.” So stay tuned WWTW readers, as Mr. Neeson will be a constant name this year.
Julia Roberts – “Mirror Mirror”
Audiences didn’t get that excited for this comedic take on “Snow White,” as “Mirror Mirror” took in only $19.3 million this weekend. Julia Roberts changes her “America’s Sweetheart” persona to wear the crown of the evil Queen, but even her iconic status couldn’t help. Roberts admits her evil role was even too nasty for her (as she told People.com), and though she loves to scare her kids, she did not allow them on set because she didn’t want them to see her nasty portrayal. Guess fewer Americans than hoped for wanted to see her mean side either.
The Celebs.com Winner of the Week is…
Like her film, Jennifer Lawrence takes the title for a second week. If you’re like us, there’s still a lot more roles to be seen before a Lawrence Oscar campaign can be taken seriously, but something that can be addressed now is how grounded the “Games” beauty has been in handling this life-altering past week. USA Today takes a deeper look at this aspect of the actress when they talked to her last week. And a special mention to distributor Relativity, which shrewdly released the trailer to their small indie starring Lawrence, “House at the End of the Street,” during the “Games” frenzy this week. The film doesn’t come out until September, but hey, if ya got the hottest thing on screen go ahead and flaunt it.
The just released official online trailer of Relativity Media’s “House at the End of the Street” starring Oscar-nominee and Hunger Games starlet Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-nominee Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot.
The film won’t be out until September 21, 2012, so you’ll have to wait about 6 months to see Jennifer Lawrence outside of her Katniss debut.
“The Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence has the cover of the April 12 issue of Rolling Stone, and in the teaser for the accompanying story, her costars describe their first impressions of the actress.
Josh Hutcherson recalled their first conversation fondly, saying, “When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute ‘Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah’ things. The conversation started with her saying, ‘Think about a catheter going in — ouch!’ and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse.”
Woody Harrelson‘s memory of Lawrence is even funnier. “I was on my bus,” he explained, “and on my bus I have a yoga swing. Jennifer comes on, and she goes, ‘Hi, Woody, I’m J— is that a sex swing?’ Her first sentence to me.”
For her part, Lawrence shared a story about why she doesn’t wash her hands in public restrooms. “I had this theory that hand washing is overrated,” she explained. “And it was true: The bathroom door had the same bacteria as the toilet seat, and the sink was the dirtiest part — it was dirtier than the toilet handle.”
Here’s another photo from Jennifer Lawrence’s Rolling Stone shoot. The full editorial and cover story will be on newsstands March 30.
Jennifer Lawrence shows her sizzling-hot side in a Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit for the cover of Interview Germany, but in her interview, she reveals that despite her “Hunger Games” fame, she hasn’t changed an iota.
When asked to name her favorite pop culture personalities, she responded, “Sometimes I think, ‘I should have more artistic answers ready.’ But the truth is, I’d like to be Bridget Jones and I am interested in Hulk Hogan.”
The 21-year-old actress also said what she plans to do with her newfound fame and fortune, and it isn’t what you might expect: “When I get my first real check, I want to bathe in a pool full of pasta.”
