This year’s Comic Con would not be complete without mentioning the Catching Fire panel which delighted fans at the event. Where else can you get Jennifer Lawrence, and “hot snot kisses?” According to both Lawrence and the recipient of her hot and snotty kiss, Josh Hutcherson, “snot bombs” are not sexy or romantic.
Who’d have thought it?
The two young stars told the snotty story to the large crowd Saturday who dropped by the see the first ever Hunger Games panel at the show. The cast of six, some couldn’t attend due to filming commitments, thrilled the crowded Hall H – Comic Con’s largest venue – with the trailer for the Catching Fire film.
Jennifer Lawrence talked about the kissing scene and the amazing cast parties that were had on location. About the kissing scene, “Oh my god, we should’ve brought that clip with the snot.” This was her first reaction to a question about just how hot the kissing scenes in the latest installment of the Hunger Games were going to be.
According to the 22 year-old star, during a “hot exchange of saliva” snot got in the way. The receiver of the kiss, Hutcherson said, “In the resuscitation there was a kiss and there was slobber, and the slobber sort of got connected to my face. He assured the crowd that, “It will be very hot.”
Jennifer revealed that she wanted to put the snot clip up on the internet. She said, “Just because the snot scene (probably) won’t make the final cut doesn’t mean you won’t get a chance to see the disgusting glory for yourself.” She added, “I’ll put it on YouTube or something. You gotta see it. There’s all this snot coming out of my nose, and when I go to kiss Josh, it connects with his mouth.”
But it wasn’t all about hot snot kisses, Jennifer Lawrence and her co-stars told Comic Con that much fun was had during the filming of Catching Fire and not just on set either. Apparently the parties were quite good as well!
20 year-old Hutcherson revealed on to the crowd that, “We had a few great parties in Hawaii. We were filming some stuff down there … and I had a house there. It was right on the beach, and we got to have all the cast come over and we just had giant swimming pool, barbecue parties and that was a lot of fun. It was a hard shoot. We were shooting long days and it was very physical, so we definitely needed to let loose and have a good time and we did that for sure.”
Jennifer Lawrence shared Josh’s sentiment and told her own favourite party story about another co-star, 51 year old Woody Harrelson, who cross-dressed for the occasion! Woody plays the mentor, Haymitch to champions Katniss and Peeta.
The Katniss actress said, “Yeah, we had some good parties. They were so weird.” Lawrence went on to talk about her most memorable moment, she said, “Woody Harrelson in a cropped top was my favorite. He got really hot and wanted to borrow a shirt of mine because he wore a thermal and the only thing he could fit in was a baggy crop top. And the best part is nobody mentioned it! The whole party, like nobody said anything. They’re just like, ‘Yeah, Woody’s in a crop top.’ That was great.”
So making the movie wasn’t all about acting and the plot. Jennifer Lawrence and her co-stars revealed at the San Diego Comic Con that it was also about the parties and hot snot kisses!
