Aaaaaaaare you ready for some Hunger Games hijiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinks?
It's that time of the year again when the real life Katniss, Peeta and Gale (Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth) make their tour of the districts and attempt to charm us with relatable tales of behind-the-scenes goofing-off.
First up: Liiiiiiiiiiiam Hemsworth. The actor appeared on The Tonight Show late last week where he was ask what the most awkward part of shooting The Hunger Games—Mockingjay was.
"Any time I had to kiss Jennifer was pretty uncomfortable," the actor told
Caesar Flickerman Jimmy Fallon. "When you look at it on the outside it looks like a great picture. She's one of my best friends. I love her. But if we had a kissing scene, she would make a point of eating garlic or tuna fish or something that was disgusting."
If you prefer your Hunger Games news on the more heartwarming side, worry not for the Capitol always provides.
At a press conference, Jeeeeeennifer Lawrence told People that Hemsworth is "the most wonderful, lovable, just family-oriented sweet, hilarious [guy]." She continued, "I guess the biggest surprise is that I would never expect to ever have a man this good-looking ever be my best friend. I never knew that those things could happen."
And in a faraway greenroom, a furious Josh Hutcherson rips off the "friends" half of the "best/friends" necklaces that he and Lawrence once bought at the mall. "Lies," he whispers. "All lies."

Adam Brody says he's bored of talking about playing Seth Cohen on The O.C., which is too bad because I'm bored when he's not talking about playing Seth Cohen on The O.C. As the actor told HuffPost Live:
"It's funny, because I do so many things, and they mean something to me, and maybe they mean something to a few people. And [The O.C.] is like a story that I was a part of that I sort of share with a certain generation, and in that way, it's an honor. It's something I'm proud of...It doesn't bother me...I'm proud of the legacy, [but] it gets boring, that's all...I've exhausted it, the conversations about it, in my mind. Forgive me for comparing myself in any way — and I'm not — but Harrison Ford, I understand why he would be crotchety talking about Star Wars...Star Wars is great, but he's been talking about it for 20, 30 years."
