2-Year-Old Indian Girl Breaks Archery Record, Is Our New Matriarch

Meet Dolly Shivani Cherukuri, 2, the latest person to break India’s archery record. Yes, that’s right, AGE TWO. At age two I think most of us were sucking our thumbs and still rolling around drooling, no? Not this queen, who has the face of a thousand daggers — the better to fight men with I…

There’s A “Hunger Games” Porn Parody And It Is Terribly Good

So, there’s a “Hunger Games” porn parody. It’s called “The Humper Games,” and it stars Kantmiss Everyween and Puta Mallarky, with special appearances, of course, from Effyou, who’s described by the President (no punny name, unfortch) as looking like “Mary Poppins just ate out a menstruating unicorn,” and Pleaser Fuckerman (I feel like that wa…

Watch The New “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” Trailer And Just Ignore Me If You’re Super, Super Excited About It

Woooo! The latest “Hunger Games” trailer is out! We’re so close to the release date! Also, are any other fans of the series just not that excited at this point?
When I read the books, I was rapt for the first book, interested for the second, and then I remember feeling, during the third,…

Would You Go To A “Hunger Games” Theme Park?

I love “The Hunger Games.” I’ll read the books, watch the movies and fangirl over the promos and trailers for “Mockingjay: Part 1″ until my obsession reaches a borderline unhealthy level, but if there’s one thing I’m not so enthusiastic about, it’s feeling like I’m in “The Hunger Games.” NOPE.

But soon we may…

Jennifer Lawrence & Alison Brie Almost Starred In An Awesomely Horrible TV Show Together

Let’s all pour one out for missed opportunities.

Before “Mad Men” and “Community,” Alison Brie was just another starving actress looking to break into the biz. And before Jennifer Lawrence won over our hearts as Katniss Everdeen from “The Hunger Games,” she too, was hoping for a big break. It’s safe to say…

Well Played: Jennifer Lawrence Is Lovely In … Some Kind Of Netting (Plus, All Of Her “Catching Fire” Red Carpet Looks!)

I’ve been surfing the web all day (just doing, ahem, my job) and have witnessed a myriad of very mixed reactions to Jennifer Lawrence’s latest look. Some love it, some think it’s just alright, some think it is an absolute TRAVESTY. But we’re pretty unanimous over here — Amelia and I both love it. Je…

Jennifer Lawrence Comforts Crying Fan, Neighs Like A Horse…All In A Day’s Work

I swear, Jennifer Lawrence is the closest thing we have to a real-life superhero (besides Ryan Gosling!). While walking the red carpet at the London premiere of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” she stopped in the middle of an interview to hug a crying fan and sign a personalized autograph for her. If that’s not…

Gale And Peeta Went To White Castle … And Then They Barfed

“A particular film that had a real impact on me as a teenager was ‘Harold & Kumar [Go To White Castle].’ It had a deep impact on me. When it came out, I was 16 or 17, and my friends watched it religiously. We didn’t even know that White Castle was real then. We didn’t…

What Is Jennifer Lawrence Thinking On The Cover Of Elle?

I unabashedly love Jennifer Lawrence and think she can pretty much do no wrong, and she is pretty much the only reason (sorry!) I saw “The Hunger Games.” But what in holy hell is going on with this Elle magazine cover? Jennifer looks like she’s ready to kill somebody. Also? Those bangs. So is she…

Jennifer Lawrence Really Can Shoot A Bow And Arrow

“The Hunger Games” Jennifer Lawrence seems rather sweet and awesome — and apparently she’s also a pretty good shot. She was asked to go head-to-head against the host of a Spanish television show in archery and fared pretty well for herself. I guess playing Katniss Everdeen really rubbed off on her. [YouTube]…

The Hipster Hunger Games Are Happening

Participating in the Hipster Hunger Games might be no big deal if you’ve, like, already been a raw vegan or whatever. But for the rest of us who are off in our overly expensive apartments downing PBRs and listening to that really cool band you haven’t heard of yet, it’s going to be kind of…

Dr. Ruth Says “The Hunger Games” Will Not Get You Laid

Take note: just in case you are planning to see “The Hunger Games” this weekend — I think most people are, right? — legendary sex advice columnist Dr. Ruth (yes, she’s still alive and kicking!) took to Twitter to issue a warning! She says that the flick’s violent nature makes it a bit of a…

Dress Your Kid In A “Hunger Games” Training Shirt!

Well, this is highly suspicious. “The Hunger Games” has licensed some of its apparel rights to Toys “R” Us, which is now selling “Hunger Games” training tees. Now you can dress your kids like a “Hunger Games” tribute, which is to say, a child who is fighting other children to the death for the honor…

Style Inspiration: Katniss Everdeen, The Girl Who Was On Fire

The main character in The Hunger Games is a teenage girl named Katniss Everdeen. She has a fiery personality, and, thanks to a creative stylist, a fiery wardrobe to match. To celebrate the rapidly approaching  release of “The Hunger Games” movie, here are some Katniss-inspired pieces both realistic and ridiculous ($1000 flaming Prada shoes, anyone?). Get…

How Jennifer Lawrence Knew She’d Really Made It

“Just recently I started letting myself eat things from the minibar. When we were kids, we would never open the minibar. A $6 Snickers bar? But the other day I was in a hotel and I was staring at a Snickers bar, and I finally just ate it. Then it was like something in me…

Jennifer Lawrence Records Song For “The Hunger Games”

Surprise! Jennifer Lawrence is not only stunning and an amazing actress who got an Oscar nomination right out of the gate; the girl apparently has pipes, too. Like Robert Pattinston did for the “Twilight” soundtrack, Jennifer has recorded a song for her movie, “The Hunger Games.” The song is called “Rue’s Lullaby” and she worked…

Quickies: See Jennifer Lawrence As Katniss In “Hunger Games” & “Are You There, Vodka?” Clips

Attention, “Hunger Games” nerds! (Ahem, Amelia.) Here’s a first look of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.. [ONTD]
Director Lars Von Trier, in Cannes to promote his film “Melancholia,” was asked about his German roots and gave some weird quote about Hitler and how he “understand(s) much” and “sympathize(s)” with…

Is “Hunger Games” The Next “Twilight”?

Though The Hunger Games has nowhere near the level of pop culture saturation as Twilight, the young adult trilogy is quickly gaining the same rabid fan base. But the similarities between the two fiction phenomenons end about there. The Hunger Games books present a world much darker than Stephenie Meyers’ land of glittery vampires and…
