Sam Claflin and Jena Malone take on Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence in 'Co-Star Connections'
Ever wonder which "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” cast member peed in their wetsuit the most while filming in the water? Or which guy was most "bromantically involved" on set with Josh Hutcherson? Now you can find out from the stars themselves.
Yahoo Movies scored an early sit-down with "Catching Fire" cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Jena Malone, and Sam Claflin for a little get-to-know-you game we call “Co-Star Connections.”
We took the concept from the classic TV game show “The Newlywed Game" and split the fabulous foursome into two teams: Lawrence and Hutcherson vs. Malone and Claflin. They were then tasked with trying to guess what their teammate’s response would be for each question. So Lawrence had to think about how Hutcherson would answer the question, and vice versa. Points were awarded to the team when they guessed each other’s answers correctly. Watch parts 1 and 2 of the game below to find out who knows each other the best.
As you can see in the videos, the “rules” were just guidelines (at best), but the competition was fierce. Oh and take note of the way in which Hutcherson’s spelling of “Jennifer” gets more and more creative with each answer.
A few of our favorite revelations revolved around the fact that the cast spent a decent amount of time filming in water and wetsuits. So who was the most comfortable in the skintight wetsuit, Hutcherson or Claflin? Answer via Lawrence: “Sam. Because Josh is a real redneck and he’s more comfortable when he doesn’t have shoes or a shirt on.”
Who was the most at home in the water, i.e., who peed the most in their wetsuit? The unanimous, no-brainer answer: Lawrence.
The most "controversial" question of the game was on the subject of Josh Hutcherson's real-life friendships (a.k.a. "bromances") with co-stars Claflin and Hemsworth. When asked who was or is more bromantically involved with Josh, Lawrence felt that the question left her in an awkward position.
"I don't know that's a pretty tricky one," she said.
"No it's not," Hutcherson said.
"It is because you guys are bromantically different," Lawrence explained.
Differences or no, all four players decided that on that particular day (and likely because Claflin was present) that the Hutcherson-Claflin bond was strongest.
"Yes! 4-nil! Take that, Liam Hemsworth!" Claflin joked.
"Here's the thing, on the first film I spent a lot more time with Liam," Hutcherson said. "On the second film I spent a lot more time with Sam."
"So Josh basically just needs to be around somebody for an X-amount of time in order to feel close to them," Lawrence added.
"Yeah basically, that's all it takes."
Other gems revealed during Part 2 of the game were: Lawrence and Malone were the most likely to be found at the craft service table, the most blooper-filled scene for Hutcherson, Lawrence and Malone was filming the action at the Cornucopia, and a fight with some aggressive monkeys was the most hazardous for Claflin.
