At the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, fans got a real treat, seeing a new trailer for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, and having the cast assembled for what was surely one of the best panels ever. Among the cast assembled was Jennifer (Katniss), Josh Hutcherson (Peeta), Liam Hemsworth (Gale), and Lenny Kravitz (Cinna) — along with some of the new cast members.
We're sure the panel was amazing, but it was also hilarious. We learned a few new things about Jennifer, adding to her list of quirkiness that we just adore.
(1) Katniss Runs "Weird"
At the panel, the cast said they all enjoyed shooting many of the new arena scenes in Hawaii, but they also admitted that training was much harder for this film than the last — especially for Jennifer.
"The hardest stunt is probably just basic running," Jennifer said. That's right, the Silver Linings Playbook star even said she hired a running coach for the film because she runs "weird."
(2) It's "Snot" Love
Jeffrey Wright, who plays Beetee in Catching Fire, said Jennifer and Josh are "the funniest pair and the biggest joy to work with." But he also noted that "you can't understand half of what they're saying."
Here's an example: At the panel, Jennifer and Josh tried to explain a scene in which a sobbing Katniss revives Peeta. What they didn't expect was that a thick line of snot dripped from Jennifer's nose right into his mouth. Jennifer said their kissing scenes involved "a lot of slobber." If this doesn't make it to the blooper reel, we won't be happy at all.
But Josh seems cool with it. "It will be really hot if you're into snot," he said.
