The Daily Treat: The Hunger Games, as Performed by Cats

Originally posted 11/11/2013 02:00PM

There's less than two weeks to go before the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, but if you're one of the three people on Earth who hasn't yet seen the saga's first hit film, released in 2012, here's a quick way to get you caught up to speed. And it involves cats.

That's right. While we normally wouldn't advocate skipping any film that stars both Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, there is something to be said for the way a feline can portray Cat-niss that Jennifer Lawrence just can't replicate (no offense to the Katniss Everdeen actress).

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' Josh Hutcherson: I Would Probably List Myself as Mostly Straight

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.

Peeta blazed the trail, and now it's catching fire.

Following in the footsteps of their Hunger Games costar Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks ditched the dystopian universe for some time with dolphins.

During three separate visits to Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium last month, the actors, in town filming Hunger Games: Catching Fire, were treated to exclusive meet-and-greets with marine mammals.

On Oct. 14, Lawrence donned a wetsuit to swim with whale sharks, manta rays and zebra sharks at the Journey with Gentle Giants exhibit. While she was instructed not to touch the creatures, she swam the perimeter and got up close and personal with several whale sharks.

Jennifer Lawrence: 'I'm Never Going to Starve Myself for a Part'

Jennifer Lawrence Talks Pressures of Hollywood, Dieting for Roles

Originally posted 11/09/2012 07:40AM

Don't expect Jennifer Lawrence to succumb to the pressures of Hollywood anytime soon.

"I'm never going to starve myself for a part ... I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner.' That's something I was really conscious of during training, when you're trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong – not thin and underfed," the actress, 22, tells December's Elle.

Despite being a relatively new face on the silver screen, the star of Silver Linings Playbook – which also stars Bradley Cooper and opens Nov. 21 – says her career brings her confidence.
