CNN has wrote an article that has quite a bit on the hunger games and a little on Jennifer:
When Lionsgate announced that Jennifer Lawrence had been cast to play Katniss, both fans and critics questioned the choice, believing she was too old, too blond and too pretty to play a ruthless warrior. However, if her success in “Winter’s Bone” and “X-Men: First Class” is any indication of her range, Lawrence has the potential to nail this role and pave the way for kick-butt female heroines.
Jacki Weaver is set to star in The Silver Lining Playbook next to Jennifer and Bradley Cooper. The Animal Kingdom star is set to play Bradley Cooper’s mother
“former high school teacher (Cooper) who is institutionalized for depression and is released from a health facility determined to find the silver linings in his life. He tries to win back his ex-wife but becomes involved with an eccentric neighbor (Lawrence) with problems of her own.
Weaver will play Cooper’s mother, who takes care of him.”

In US Magazine; Lenny Kravitz talks about Jennifer and his scenes withher as he plays Katniss’ (Jennifer) stylist Cinna and creates the whole girl on fire!
US: How has it been working with Jennifer Lawrence?
LK: Oh man, I shot a scene with her yesterday and it was just the two of us, where our characters meet, and she is unbelievable. I hate comparisons, but she is a young Meryl Streep. This girl is for real and just acting with her, it just brought it to a level where she pulled me in so deeply, and the scene just became so real and at the end we had to pop out of it. It was someplace we had gone into and it was really beautiful. I learned actually a lot from her yesterday and she is fantastic.
US: You knew her through Zoe before you started filming, right?
LK: Yes, and that makes it even more odd. She is a family friend and all of the sudden you have to be serious because when we are all together we are all quite silly. My daughter, her friends…we are quite a silly bunch, but it was great.
Great news! Lionsgate has officially announced that The Hunger Games is wrapped! Jennifer will play Katniss Everdeen, which you probably all know anyway and it will come out next year. Jennifer stars along side the likes of Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne).
“It has been an absolute thrill watching THE HUNGER GAMES, a project that has truly become part of Lionsgate’s DNA since our acquisition of the book in 2009, come to life. What I observed on set was impressive on every level, and reinforced my confidence that we have assembled precisely the right team to bring Suzanne Collins’ brilliant novel to the big screen,” said Joe Drake, Lionsgate’s co-COO and Motion Picture Group President.

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.

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.”
