Sam Claflin and Jena Malone Glamour Photoshoot

The dapper Sam Claflin (Finnick) and beautiful Jena Malone (Johanna) did a photoshoot for Glamour Magazine and spoke about their auditioning process.

She says…
Jena Malone has been playing “the brave one” in movies like Saved! and Stepmom since she was a kid. Today, at 28, she’s fearless yet again as Catching Fire’s ax-wielding badass Johanna Mason.

Glamour: Those are some really major eyelashes in the movie.
Jena Malone: I wish I could rock them in real life! They were like five inches long.
Glamour: You’ve had some extreme looks in your own life too.
JM: When I was 18, I shaved my head. I was bald. Then I had a mohawk—for a job that fell through.
Glamour: Was your part in The Hunger Games tough to get?
JM: I know they saw every single actress from here till Tuesday. They wanted to find someone who didn’t just physicalize this character but could also scare people. I don’t know what I did—I guess I scared the hell out of them.

He says… 
Sam Claflin’s career is the stuff of fairy tales. We met the 27-year-old Brit in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (he played a lusty missionary). Now he’s flaunting rippling abs and a blond ’do as District 4’s lust object Finnick Odair.

Glamour: Was getting this role like its own Hollywood Hunger Games?
Sam Claflin: Finnick is supposed to be this godlike creature. I remember sitting in the audition room and this kid walked in. He was seriously one of the most handsome men I’ve ever seen. And I was just, Nah, this is never going to happen.
Glamour: How did you transform yourself into an Adonis?
SC: I had chicken and asparagus every day for three months. My girlfriend was quite happy.
Glamour: Did you take pics?
SC: I was sending my mom photos of myself, really buff. [Laughs.] That sounds so wrong!

Jennifer Lawrence Covers Vanity Fair for February 2013

cn_image.size.jennifer-lawrence-cover

Jennifer Lawrence is the covergirl for the February edition of Vanity Fair. In an excerpt of the article accompanied by gorgeous photos of Jennifer, she talks about putting her newfound skills in archery to test in real life.

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence owns her own bow and arrow, the 22-year-old tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Jim Windolf in our February-issue cover story. “One time I actually used it for defense. I pulled into my garage and I heard men in my house. And I was like, ‘I’m not letting them take my stuff. I had just gotten back from training, so I had the bow and arrows in the back of my car. I went to my car and I put this quiver on me and I had my bow and I loaded it and I’m walking up the stairs. And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin’?'” Lawrence’s friends were disappointed by the anticlimactic outcome of the event, the actress tells Windolf: “They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!”

And once again, her down to earth personality shines through.

At 22, Lawrence is the rare celebrity who sounds more like a human being than a well-coached product. Lawrence, who did not go to high school and describes herself as “vastly uneducated” but reads Anna Karenina on her days off, talks to Windolf about subjects as varied and intimate as crying to her mother, having the money but not the maturity to buy a house, and getting “slaughtered” on the red carpet. This is not, Windolf reports, a girl who is afraid to put it all out there, or bite the hand that feeds her. “Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid,” Lawrence says. “Everybody’s like, ‘How can you remain with a level head?’ And I’m like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky? I’m not saving anybody’s life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I’m making movies. It’s stupid.’”Still, Lawrence is wowed by her acting idols. “Once I’m obsessed with somebody, I’m terrified of them instantly. I’m not scared ofthem—I’m scared of me and how I will react,” she tells Windolf. “Like, for instance, one time someone was introducing me to Bill Maher, and I saw Meryl Streep walk into the room, and I literally put my hand right in Bill Maher’s face and said, ‘Not now, Bill!,’ and I just stared at Meryl Streep.” So, Windolf asks, did she meet Meryl Streep? “Of course not. I just creepily stared at her.”
