Now some updates on X-Men: Days Of Future Past:
Yesterday, universally beloved actress Jennifer Lawrence appeared on the publicity circuit to chat about Hunger Games: Catching Fire, unveil a brand new punk-pixie coiffure, and further endear herself to the universe with a new batch of lovably unpretentious anecdotes.
Among them: that her decision to chop off her hair was motivated not by vanity but by excessive dye damage and the fact that her hair simply, as she said, “couldn’t get any uglier.” “It grew to an awkward, gross length,” Lawrence told Yahoo C.E.O. Marissa Mayer during a panel discussion, “and I kept putting it back in a bun, and I was like, ‘I don’t want to do this,’ so I just cut it off.”
Lawrence also took the time to reassure concerned Hunger Games fans: “This isn’t how Katniss is going to look in the next movies; I’m wearing a wig for filming.”
Other endearing J.Law anecdotes from yesterday’s press rounds:
If Lawrence had to pick an alternate career, she’d choose “hotel maid” . . .
“. . . because I really like to clean and also look through people’s stuff. And it’s always like new people every day. . . And I would like to think a nurse or a doctor because I’ve always been interested in the human body and everything gross. But I don’t think I could make it through school. But if I could just show up, then a nurse or a doctor.”
She really enjoyed her wetsuit scenes in Catching Fire for T.M.I. reasons.
“Josh [Hutcherson] and I could just swim in the water or, like, pee any time you want[ed]. Anytime you have to pee, you can just run right in the water. It was amazing.”
On the flip side, she did not enjoy wearing the couture wedding gown in Catching Fire.
Since it required her to relieve herself in a bucket between takes. “That’s hard to do when you can’t see.”
Lawrence thinks she has a hideous crying face.
After watching Catching Fire, she thought to herself, “‘Oh my God. You have to find a prettier crying face. You need to keep it together.’ I’m going to try to do more crying where it’s, like, beautiful tears falling down my face and not changing anything, instead of [scrunching] this face.”
Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence forced her to try Spam sushi during filming in Hawaii, and it was disgusting.
The mojitos at her hotel, she revealed, were amazing, though.
Jennifer Lawrence is really jealous that Josh Hutcherson was Punk’d by MTV.
She had no idea that Punk’d was even still on the air, but now that she knows, she would really like to be targeted by the MTV show.
She once forfeited her chance to work on a great movie on behalf of Amanda Seyfried.
She said that she read a comedy script that she absolutely loved once, but she couldn’t stop thinking about Amanda Seyfried in the role. So instead of auditioning, she called the producers and said they should hire Seyfried.
Lawrence lost her hearing while filming Catching Fire.
“I went deaf in one ear for months. . . . But that wasn’t actually physically challenging. It was just ear challenging because I got all of these ear infections from the diving and the water and all of that stuff. And then a jet from one of the cornucopia scenes punctured my eardrum.”
One actor continually tells her to return her Oscar.
Every time Lawrence flubbed her lines during shooting, her Catching Fire co-star Woody Harrelson would crack, “Well, you better give that Oscar back.”
It would take a lot to get her to play Fantasy Football.
“You’d have to teach me how to use a computer. Then you’d have to teach me about football. And then you’d have to tie me down and force my eyeballs open.”
Her deepest, darkest concern about fame:
“I guess my main worry is that people will start hating what I hate about myself. I worry that everybody will think I am really annoying and just want me to shut up. Which would make so much sense because I annoy myself . . . I guess I want people to know that if they are annoyed with me, I get it, it’s totally cool. Please forgive me.”
The movie is opening soon and press for it is starting! Here are Stills, Posters, Promos!

Jennifer Lawrence’s new pixie haircut is “catching fire,” but the result came from dye damage and other overstyling.
No, it wasn’t just to freak out “Hunger Games” fans who shudder at the thought of Katniss Everdeen without her signature brunet braid.
“No, this isn’t how Katniss is going to look in the next movies, don’t worry,” the 23-year-old star said during a Yahoo chat on Thursday. “I’m wearing a wig [in them].”
“I don’t know, I cut it earlier, and it was just kind of like [shoulder-length] and it grew to that awkward, gross length,” she said. “I just kept putting it back in a bun, and I said, ‘Well I don’t want to do this,’ so I just cut it off.”
It “couldn’t get any uglier,” she quipped.
Just after that, the trend-setting starlet went on a long-winded tirade about body image in Hollywood after an audience member solicited advice for people experiencing harsh disparagement from their peers.
“Well, screw those people,” she said. “It’s something that everybody experiences. I experienced it in school. The world has a certain idea — we see this airbrushed perfect model image. … You just have to look past it. You look how you look. And be comfortable. What are you gonna do, be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.”
Then the Dior spokeswoman went after E!’s snark fest “Fashion Police,” hosted by sharp-tongued comedienne Joan Rivers.
“And there’s shows like the ‘Fashion Police’ and things like that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on things… that they put values in all the things that are wrong and that it’s OK to point at people and call them ugly and call them fat and they call it ‘fun’ and ‘welcome to the real world.’ And it’s like, that shouldn’t be the real world. That’s going to keep being the real world if you keep it that way. It’s not until we stop treating each other like that and just stop calling each other fat … with these unrealistic expectations for women. It’s disappointing that the media keeps it alive and fuels that fire,” she said.
“That’s something that really bothers me because I love to eat,” she finished with a laugh.
Lawrence also revealed that she had a thing for ‘N Sync frontman Justin Timberlake. Before he left the band, that is.
“My teen crush — Justin Timberlake. Nineties Justin Timberlake though, like ‘NSYNC Justin Timberlake,” she added. “I remember when I bought the ‘NSYNC CD, and I was listening to it and I was flipping through –- remember how CDs had the pull-out picture things? And I was getting so overwhelmed with hormones that I almost threw up.”
Add to the list the Lawrence brothers, “Boy Meets World” actor Matthew Lawrence and “a little bit” of “Growing Pains” alum Kirk Cameron.
During a Global Google+ Hangout, the playful actress again explained why she’d opted for her shortened look, first joking that it was to upset “Hunger Games” director Francis Lawrence (no relation).
“I just did it to make Francis mad,” she laughed. “I did it just to annoy him. No, it was just at that awkward length … the first time I cut it to [shoulder-length], he totally thought it was me giving him the finger.
“But it’s not,” she admitted. “It’s just fried from being dyed so much.”

The first trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is out:
The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has signed on to lead The Rules of Inheritance, an adaptation of Claire Bidwell Smith’s recent memoir. Deadline reports that the project has a director in Susanne Bier, whose latest, Serena, re-teams Lawrence with her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper.
Published last year, The Rules of Inheritance is officially described as follows:
In this astonishing debut, Claire Bidwell Smith, an only child, is just fourteen years old when both of her charismatic parents are diagnosed with cancer. What follows is a coming-of-age story that is both heartbreaking and exhilarating. As Claire hurtles towards loss she throws herself at anything she thinks might help her cope with the weight of this harsh reality: boys, alcohol, traveling, and the anonymity of cities like New York and Los Angeles. By the time she is twenty-five years old they are both gone and Claire is very much alone in the world.
Claire’s story is less of a tragic tale and more of a remarkable lesson on how to overcome some of life’s greatest hardships. Written with suspense and style, and bursting with love and adventure, The Rules of Inheritance vividly captures the deep grief and surprising light of a young woman forging ahead on a journey of loss that humbled, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
Lawrence will also produce alongside Bruce Cohen with the project being executive produced through FilmNation Entertainment.
