Sugarscape.com has recently talked to Max Thieriot (“House at the End of the Street”) about his latest movie, as well as Jennifer Lawrence. It appears that Max Thieriot could possibly beat Jennifer Lawrence in an archery competition because “her arrow shooting is not really proper technique.” Don’t mess with Jen, Max… ;)

What was it like working with Jennifer?
It was great, she was fun, she was really down to earth and from a small town so it was a good time, and at that point in time she hadn?t done The Hunger Games, it hadn?t even come out actually.

Do you think you could take her in a fight?
In real life? Yeah.

Hands down?
I mean, Jen?s tough but yeah? I don?t know.

So you don?t think she?d win an arm wrestle?
I don?t think so.

Ok, so if you were in a Hunger Games scenario, do you think you?d be able to fight your way out or would you be one of the first to go?
I think that I would be able to fight to the end, I think that in real life, in a Hunger Games scenario, I could take down any of those people.

Even Jennifer?
Yeah, because I shoot a bow and arrow and I know the proper technique behind it and her arrow shooting is not really proper technique.

So in real life you could beat Jennifer in an archery competition?
Yeah, I mean, maybe not in the movie, in the movie she would beat me, but it?s a movie.

You had a bit of a kissing scene with Jennifer, how did that go?
I did, yeah there?s a bit of a kissing scene. It was fine, she?s very attractive and it was a kissing scene, I don?t know.

Did you practise beforehand or just go for it?
No we didn?t practise beforehand, and never really talked about it. These things don?t really come up before, just because it?s kind of a strange thing to talk about, like ?Hey, we?re going to kiss soon.? It?s kind of on the day, you know that you?re going to be kissing that day and so preferably you probably don?t have a tuna sandwich that day.

Maybe pop a mint?
Yeah probably, some gum.

Was it a bit awkward afterwards or do you just carry on with the day?
Just carry on with the day. It?s just like shooting any other scene.

Will there be a sequel?
I think that just depends on the success of the film.


In the latest interview with RTE.ie, Jennifer Lawrence speaks about her latest film, the horror-thriller House at the End of the Street. What it was like to work on set of horror movie? How was the cast and the crew? Does Jennifer love horrors? What advice would she give her character, Elissa? Read to find out!

Can you talk about some of the themes of the movie?
Jennifer Lawrence: Yeah, what really drew me to it was we are constantly telling each other, listen to your gut, listen to your instincts. And that’s kind of how we go through life, with this kind of gut instinct in us. And there’s such a huge fear in what if that instinct is wrong. What if you go out on a limb listening to your gut, and you think that you can trust somebody, and then you end up being wrong.

Were the twists and turns in the story what attracted you to it? What did you think when you first read the script?
When I was reading the script there was so many twists with the characters, you didn’t know who you could trust because you knew that you couldn’t trust this guy. But then if she trusts him, then you kind of start trusting him. But then you start wondering if you can trust her because she shouldn’t have trusted him in the first place. And it’s just kind of like as you’re reading it, I just kept going like who is right here? And that’s such a cool part of the script is that nobody’s really right. You spend the entire movie wondering.

Can you explain what is going on in the story?
Elissa has just moved with her mom from Chicago, and they’ve moved to this small town, and there’s a neighbour next door who Elissa sympathizes with, and her mom wants her to stay away from him. Everybody kind of tells her to stay away from him but she feels sorry for him, and thinks that everyone’s wrong- and kind of takes a chance with him.

Why is everyone creeped out by Ryan?
Everyone is creeped out by Ryan because his sister, and parents, were all murdered. He was the only one left. So I think he lives in this house where these murders took place, and I think everybody thinks that’s a little bit odd. And so they’re all curious about him.

Making the characters relatable and real, was that something Mark brought to it?
Yeah, that’s what I loved about Mark, and what I loved about the script was that it wasn’t about gore, and scaring people with blood. It’s all just very well developed characters, and you find yourself getting scared for these people from a personal place. It was a very sophisticated way to scare an audience.

Jennifer Lawrence is ready for the role of a lifetime: that of the next great American film star.

Jennifer Lawrence is only 22, but she has already been nominated for a best actress Academy Award, for Winter?s Bone, and starred in two blockbuster franchises. She was nude and blue as Mystique in X-Men: First Class, and in The Hunger Games she played Katniss Everdeen, the ultimate heroine for a dystopic age. In November, she stars in Silver Linings Playbook, a romantic comedy about emotionally damaged people.

You play a rather crazy widow in Silver Linings. Technically, you are too young to play that character. Did you have to audition?
I did. But I didn?t mind. People always worry that I?m wrong for the part: I?m usually too young?or, in the case of Katniss, they thought I was too old. I was blonde, and Katniss is brunette. So many problems. There were a lot of things that we just brushed under the rug.

The climax in Silver Linings is a big dance scene with Bradley Cooper, who plays your would-be boyfriend. Could you dance before this movie?
I?m such a bad dancer [laughs]. I don?t have many talents: I?m not a good cook, I can?t clean, and I can?t sew. The only thing I can do well is shoot bow and arrow?which I learned to do for The Hunger Games and will probably never come in handy?and act. Imagine me 100 years ago: I would have been pointless.

You could have acted! Although there weren?t movies like X-Men back then. Did you have to get naked and blue for the X-Men audition?
Not for the audition, but there was a moment where I thought I was going to have to paint my face and Skype with the director, and I said no. The first test where they painted me blue took around eight hours of makeup. I would stand, lean, or sit on a bicycle seat naked while they painted me. I have no modesty left after X-Men? I had blue in places I didn?t even know existed. Afterward, I had to go around naked, with scales over my private parts, surrounded by men. That cures you of all inhibition.

Did you end up hating blue?
Not really, but I did leave the color everywhere. The hotel in London wouldn?t give me my security deposit back because I turned their tub blue. I also did that to a lot of toilet seats on set. We called it ?getting Mystiqued.?

After filming X-Men, you went straight into Oscar madness. Did you have fun at the Academy Awards?
It?s an honor and an overwhelming compliment, but it?s also a kind of bizarre thing. All of a sudden you?re at these parties and everybody?s famous, and you feel like a loser. By the time of the actual Oscars, I was so sick of fittings and trains and corsets and people asking ?What are you going to wear?? I had to go on a diet, because at all the parties there?s champagne and hors d?oeuvres. I ate so much! I think I wore two Spanx on the night of the awards.

When you were at the Oscars, did you already know you were about to star in Hunger Games?
My mom talked about Hunger Games on the red carpet at the Academy Awards, which was something I had told her a million times not to do. She?s like Dina Lohan!?but she has good taste.

As soon as you got the part of Katniss, you began training. I read somewhere that you are so good with a bow and arrow that you could compete in archery at the Olympics.
I do love archery. I could kill someone with a bow and arrow if they?d hold still! With Hunger Games, I got really nervous about signing on to that huge franchise. I was afraid that Katniss would overwhelm any other character I?d try to do. But I love Katniss, and she didn?t take over as much of my life as I thought she would.

Tiffany in Silver Linings is very different from Katniss. She?s challenging and initially off-putting. Do you have to like a character to play her?
No. I don?t have to like them? a lot of people don?t like themselves. It?s nice not to be likable for the audience. It?s freeing to not have to get an audience on your side.

You started so young?you came to L.A. when you were only 15. One of your first movies was The Poker House, and your character in the film is raped. Was that traumatizing?
No. I hid the Poker House script from my parents so that I could audition for it. By the time I got the part, it was too late: They had to let me do it. During the filming of the rape scene, my mom was there. I was okay with it. I was very ballsy at that age?the typical kind of stubbornness that comes with being a teenager. I started out fearless, and now I?m terrified.

That is not true.
It is, and it isn?t: You do become more aware of your mortality as you get older. When you?re little, you jump on any wild horse. Then you get a little bit older and realize how fragile life is, and you?re more careful.

You sound so old. You?re 22!
I?ve been through a lot. I mean, I?ve been nude and painted blue! [Laughs] Truthfully, a lot has happened in a short time.

Have your feelings about the movie business and Los Angeles changed?
Sadly, I cannot live in Los Angeles anymore. I don?t understand how actors can do it. You have no life here. You are followed everywhere. It?s not like that anywhere else in the world. I don?t want to stay in L.A. and start thinking that?s reality?because it?s very far from normal. But I still love movies. I?m just going to love being in them from Kentucky, or Prague, or somewhere else.


With New York Fashion week wrapping up, it’s the perfect time for People to announce that it has bestowed the honor of World’s Best-Dressed Woman on none other than multi-talented (and Oscar-winning!) Gwyneth Paltrow. Other women honored by the mag include our Jennifer Lawrence (rising star), Emma Stone (the red carpet ruler), Diane Kruger (The high fashion pro), and Rihanna (The Risky Renegade).

“She doesn’t let the clothes wear her,” the College Fashion blogger Zephyr Basine says of the designer looks Lawrence picked for the Hunger Games press tour. And with ensembles ranging from this backless gold gown to her copper lace sheath (both Prabal Gurung), she shows total command of style for someone so young.


In the newest interview with Jennifer Lawrence, the young star talks to Vanity Fair’s Krista Smith about her latest film Silver Linings Playbook, working with David O. Russell, The Hunger Games, as well as her new darker look. Watch it after the jump.
