Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence was terrified while taping The Hunger Games: Catching Fire because she thought her tight wetsuit might show more than she realized.

But they actually were pretty comfortable once we found out you can actually pee through them—just go into the ocean and take care of your business."

So while Jennifer's bathroom worries were alleviated, the actress wasn't satisfied that her privacy would...

British actor Sam Claflin struggled to stick to his strict protein-rich diet to get into shape for the upcoming The Hunger Games sequel because he was always craving a beer and a burger.

The Snow White and the Huntsman star was cast as Finnick Odair in the Catching Fire movie, but his appointment was met with tough criticism from fans because he bared little resemblance to the musclebound fictional character.

He recently told Britain's Elle magazine he was surprised to learn he had landed the job because Claflin was convinced he was too "out of shape" and "pale" to portray Odair.

However...

Snow White and the Huntsman
Okay folks, 'Snow White' is back and this time she's mad as hell and ready to kick some butt.

First off, I must ask, did we really need two films this year about Miss White? Personally, I think it was one was too many.

In any case, 'Snow White and the Huntsman' directed by Rupert Sanders, stars Kristen Stewart as Snow White, Charlize Theron, as the super evil Queen, Ravenna and Chris Hemsworth as the hunky Huntsman.

We all know the story, so I'll be brief...

Ravenna feeds on the souls of virgins in order to maintain her youthful glow (guess she never heard about Botox). After she kills...

Pirates Of The Caribbean On Stranger Tides
'Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' directed by Rob Marshall is the fourth film of this franchise...And in my opinion, the best.

Johnny Depp returns as Captain Jack Sparrow but this time, except for Geoffrey Rush (Captain Hector Barbossa) and Kevin R. McNally (Joshamee Gibbs) there's a whole new set of characters that may or may not want to do him harm...including the beautiful, enigmatic, Pirate...Angelica (Penelope Cruz).
