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."

It's becoming an all out fashion war between Joan Rivers and Jennifer Lawrence.
Rivers, 80, is firing back at the 23-year-old actress after she criticized her E! show Fashion Police for teaching young people "the wrong values."
"There are shows like the Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat," The Independent reported Lawrence as telling Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer while promoting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. "We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat."
Rivers immediately took to social media to respond with cutting humor.

On screen and on the page, The Hunger Games are a gladiator-style battle to the death. Behind the scenes making the movies, it's another competition altogether.
Just ask Josh Hutcherson who plays Peeta Mellark to Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.
Having filmed the latest, Hunger Games, Catching Fire, opening Nov. 22, Hutcherson tells Seventeen for its November issue (on sale Oct. 22) that in a test of wits as to who's funnier, he or Lawrence, "We have this debate all the time – I think it's me!"

Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson doesn't believe in labels.
The actor, 20, discusses sexuality in an interview with Out magazine and admits, "Maybe I could say right now I'm 100 percent straight. But who knows? In a f–––ing year, I could meet a guy and be like, 'Whoa, I'm attracted to this person.'"
"I've met guys all the time that I'm like, 'Damn, that's a good-looking guy,' you know? I've never been, like, 'Oh, I want to kiss that guy.' I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100 percent anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded," he says.
