Tomorrow, Jennifer’s movie Like Crazy is having its first showing at TIFF at 6pm at Ryerson. On the TIFF website it has a long plot synopsis
She’s English, he’s American — but for now they’re both squatting in the land of the smitten. In this savvy take on star-crossed love, the obstacle comes not in the form of feuding families or untimely death, but the more contemporary challenges of geography and immigration papers. While Drake Doremus offered up goofball road-trip romance in his 2010 comedy Douchebag, he now turns his virtuoso eye to the dramatic.Like Crazy is an astute and sharply honest glimpse at one turbulent ocean-spanning relationship.
Anna (Felicity Jones) notices Jacob (Anton Yelchin) in one of her college classes in Los Angeles. In a move worthy only of her youth, she scribbles a love poem and leaves it on his car. The pair is soon catapulted into that most potent brand of romance: naïve, pure and possibly fleeting. When Anna is deported back to England after overstaying her visa, the couple reckons with the inadequacies of text messaging, rival lovers and the cruel realities of a distance that starts out physical but becomes, over time, emotional.
The actors improvised all of the dialogue — Doremus’ mother was a founding member of The Groundlings, so improv is in his genes — adding a visceral naturalism to the film’s affective punch. Jones and Yelchin perfectly capture the can’t-get-enough-of-each-other bliss of young love, conveying both the sweetness and vulnerability of twentysomething courtship. As Jacob’s convenient distraction, Jennifer Lawrence (nominated for an Academy Award® for Winter’s Bone last year) is a smoky counterpoint to Jones’ bright-eyed Anna.
This perceptive account of first-time heartbreak is often painful but never cynical. Shot on a Canon HD still camera,Like Crazy’s lo-fi visual sensibility enhances the high-impact resonance of Anna and Jacob’s very recognizable story. Doremus’ lens magnifies the often fitful process of realizing it isn’t meant to be. We may idealize our first love, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t real.

Teen Vogue has an article on Jennifer and Emma Watson’s minimalist style Calvin Klein Collection gowns.
The two starlets both rocked minimalist Calvin Klein Collection gowns to major red carpet events: Emma at a screening of the latest Harry Potter flick and Jennifer at the Oscars. But which actress rocks the simple design best? Emma compliments the dresses classic shape and clean lines by opting for a sophisticated black version. She sticks to the basics when it comes to accessories, choosing elegant black heels and a barely-there bracelet as her only piece of jewelry but her fashion-forward pixie cut adds some youthful edginess to the look! Jennifer, on the other hand, gives the dress’ minimalist shape a jolt of energy by opting for a version in fire engine red. She makes sure the gown is the main attraction by opting for quieter hair and accessories–her loose locks and gold clutch are the perfect counterpart to this notice-me-now frock!
Teen Vogue have posted an online character profile for the characters of Jennifer’s up coming movie; The Hunger Games in which she plays Katniss Everdeen.
When her father died, fiercely self-sufficient sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen was forced to became the sole provider for her mother and little sister—which, in District 12, often means spending whole days in the wilderness, illegally hunting for food. Despite her hard exterior, Katniss has a big heart and often shares her spoils with others. Her love for her little sister, Prim, forces Katniss to take her place as a competitor in Panem’s annual Hunger Games. As a “tribute” in the games, Katniss uses her skills and strength to survive, and along the way learns something she never expected—how to trust someone else to take care of her.

Last night was the X Men First Class Blu Ray launch party in which hitfix caught up with Lucas Till (Havok/Alex Summers); Jennifer’s co-star. Lucas shared with hitfx on how he almost missed out on starring in X Men First Class because of the thought that he was to be offered beast and couldn’t endure the hours of make up that Jennifer had to do to get into her role of Mystique.
“They could’ve been trying to goof me or whatever… I went out, and they were flying me to London, and [they] told me I was auditioning for Havok and Beast,” Lucas shared. “And I was like, ‘I know you’ll kill me, but if I get Beast, I’m not in the movie. I’m not going through that makeup everyday.’”
He added, “I have so much respect for Jason [Flemying], Jennifer [Lawrence], and Nick [Hoult]. They had to go through like hours of makeup before we even got there. It’s just rough.”
