Behind The Scenes on The Hunger Games

Behind The Scenes on The Hunger Games

It’s Game time! After months of anticipation, endless fan discussion and a pandemonium-producing premiere, the first Hunger Games film is finally arriving in theaters on March 23. The fans are ready – but are the stars?

“It still hasn’t sunk in,” Jennifer Lawrence, who plays series’ heroine Katniss Everdeen, tells People magazine in cover story.

The 21-year-old actress also shares how she bonded off-set in North Carolina with leading men Josh Hutcherson, 19, and Liam Hemsworth, 22.

“One day we went down to a creek to catch a crawdad, ’cause Liam didn’t know what it was,” recalls Lawrence. “I saw one and was like, ‘Catch it!’ Josh did and it got stuck to his hand. It was a leech! Then we went to Walmart and bought slingshots.”

Adds Lawrence, who also spent time with her cast mates listening to costar Lenny Kravitz play music back at their hotel: “It was like some weird summer camp.”

Jennifer Lopez style birthday in Miami

Jennifer Lopez style birthday in Miami

Despite her marital woes, Jennifer Lopez celebrated her birthday Miami style. According to People magazine, the star – who turned 42 on Sunday – spent the weekend hitting the town.

On Saturday night, J.Lo was spotted at Scott Conant’s restaurant, Scarpetta, at the Fontainebleau hotel with a group of 16 people, which included her mother, sister and various members of her entourage.

“Jennifer looked radiant in a purple and silver evening dress,” a source told the mag. “And when they brought out her birthday cake after the meal, she began to sing. She was very happy. The whole group had a blast, staying for hours. They closed down the restaurant.”

The group dined on Italian delicacies, including spaghetti with tomato and basil and foie gras ravioli.

Earlier on Saturday, J.Lo was seen shopping near South Beach, where she hit up Hermes, Dolce & Gabbana, Valentino and Pucci.

On Friday, the newly single-star, who announced her split from husband Marc Anthony earlier this month, had a pre-birthday bash at Miami’s Wine Cellar of the Forge.

While dining with friends and family, a source said J.Lo “was chatty and charming.”

Elizabeth Hurley: I’m coping well with my divorce

Elizabeth Hurley: I'm coping well with my divorce

A brief interview with Elizabeth Hurley

Elizabeth Hurley isn’t dwelling on her recent divorce from Arun Nayar. “I think I’m coping quite well, actually,” she told PEOPLE at the Harper’s Bazaar Fabulous at Every Age bash in New York Tuesday night. “We’re all quite happy right now and trying to move forward.”

Since filing for divorce the actress has been spending a lot of time on her farm, according to a source, and she plans on joining her son, Damian, on a trip to India next week.

Hurley, 45, who’s been linked to Australian cricket player Shane Warne recently, is becoming accustomed to dating in the spotlight.

“I’ve been around for a long time, and I think I’m just used to it at this point,” she said. “It can be intrusive but I’m pretty good at getting privacy when I need it.”

Jennifer Lopez named Most Beautiful Woman of 2011

Jennifer Lopez named Most Beautiful Woman of 2011

The 41-year-old star loves glamming it up, but her favorite look may surprise you.

Jennifer Lopez has been named People’s Most Beautiful Woman of 2011. While the gorgeous 41-year-old “American Idol” host spends a lot of time getting glammed up for red carpet events, Lopez tells the mag she prefers the time she spends at home with hubby Marc Anthony and their 3-year-old twins, Max and Emme, without having a stitch of makeup on her face.

“That’s when I’m happiest,” she smiles. “Just being able to touch my face and rub my eyes and put my fingers in my hair and not having to worry about messing it up is so much better.” As for her “diva” reputation, J.Lo admits, “I kind of like it. We’ve kind of owned it now. But I certainly don’t like and I’ve never been a person who has what they call ‘diva behavior,’ which is something they tried to pin on me for a long time.”

Jessica Simpson Declares: I’m in Love!

Jessica Simpson Declares: I'm in Love!

Jessica Simpson is one busy soul: In the past month, she’s traveled to the Middle East to meet troops, while on Thursday night she performed songs from her upcoming Christmas album for a PBS special to air Thanksgiving.

There to support her? Her dad Joe, sister Ashlee, nephew Bronx – and her boyfriend of several months, Eric Johnson. “He went and got a sweater and a bowtie to try to lift my spirits because I’ve been working extremely hard,” Simpson, 30, told People Magazine after the show. “I laughed my butt off!”

She added, “As far as Eric and I go, we’re just best friends. He’s my dude! I love him.”

The couple began dating in May, and ever since have been spotted getting cozy across the U.S. and overseas – even celebrating her birthday together in Italy. If the relationship seems like it’s getting serious, that’s because it is.

Simpson tells People Magazine that they’re planning to spend Thanksgiving together. “We’re all gonna be in New York,” she says. “I’m gonna be on a [Macy’s parade] float. It’s not always the best way to spend a Thanksgiving, but it’s a great way to celebrate. So, maybe I’ll just have all families on the float.”

For now, Simpson says she and her man are simply enjoying spending time together. “Tomorrow we’re having a long day off,” she says. “He loves art. So, we go to art galleries, and he loves photography. It’s cool.”

“This [relationship] is just normal, thank God,” she continues. “He’s very, very supportive. [I] couldn’t ask for a better man in my life right now.”

Which, of course, begs the big question: Is Johnson the one? “I never go to that because I already went there, so, I’m not gonna jinx my own self,” she says. “He’s the one for me right now! I’m very happy, I’m in a great place and if right now could last forever, I’d take it.”
