We already know she can dance (thanks to Silver Linings Playbook) and kick ass (as seen in The Hunger Games). But apparently, there's something else Jennifer Lawrence is good at: kissing.
The Oscar winner's lip-locking abilities got high praise from Amy Adams, her costar in the Golden Globe-nominated film American Hustle. The pair share a kiss in the crime drama, set in the 1970s.
"She does a great job at it," Adams, 39, said of Lawrence, 23, during an interview with Extra. "She has very soft lips."

Elizabeth Banks admits she curses "like a sailor" and gets a little crafty at home, and she chatted with PEOPLE this week about "one last thing" ...
Last time I was moved to tears
I was driving my [2-year-old] son Felix to school in the morning and singing Natasha Bedingfield’s “Unwritten,” and I burst into tears singing it to him. I blame PMS. There is no reason to be that emotional about it.

Grab your bow and braid your hair, because The Hunger Games is here again. Thursday night was the first chance for true tributes to take in the glory of Catching Fire, the second film based on Suzanne Collins's dystopian but oh-so-trendy book trilogy.
The midnight showings, squealing mayhem and opening night lines may seem overwhelming to some, but plenty of Panem aficionados turned up for a first look. Hoping to discover the special sauce behind The Hunger Games frenzy, we arrived at a New York City theater several hours before the first showings to see why these diehards don't mind spending a whole evening camping out in a movie theater lobby.

It's been two months since Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus ended their engagement, but the Hunger Games: Catching Fire star says he's doing okay.
"These days I feel like I'm more centered and grounded than I've ever been," he tells the Associated Press.
The actor, who met Cyrus in 2010 on the set of their film The Last Song, admits he's gone through a lot since he moved to Hollywood from his native Australia five years ago.

Jennifer Lawrence was as friendly as ever on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday, but she wasn't particularly warm – until she was handed a big pink blanket to fight off the chill.
And soon, she was joined under the comforter by the host himself, who then joked that he wanted the audience to leave immediately.
"God, can it be any colder? … It feels like all the windows are open or something," the Oscar winner, 23, said at the beginning of the interview. "Do you ever get so cold that you start sweating? Is that just a gross problem I have?"

There was much to love about 2012's The Hunger Games, from Jennifer Lawrence's badass portrayal of heroine Katniss Everdeen to Elizabeth Banks's over-the-top ensembles as Effie Trinket. But for a certain group of fans, the book's big-screen adaptation got one very important aspect of the story wrong: Prim's cat.
The beloved feline of Katniss's younger sister is described as having a yellow coat, an aspect that inspires Prim to name him Buttercup. In last year's blockbuster, however, Buttercup was portrayed by a black-and-white cat – until author Suzanne Collins had a word with Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence.
"That was a request from Nina [Jacobson] the producer and Suzanne the author," he told io9.com of the change. "They thought the cat from the first movie was not the way he was described in the book. And that had annoyed a bunch of fans, and things like that."
