Jena Malone Talks Baring It All in “Catching Fire”

Jena Malone Talks Baring It All in “Catching Fire”

jenamaloneelevatorscene Jena Malone Talks Baring It All in “Catching Fire”I think we all remember where we were when the famous “elevator scene” happened. When brusque axe-slinger, Johanna Mason, introduced herself to Katniss and Peeta by promptly and completely stripping herself of the tree costume her stylist had fashioned. And for a moment we stopped reading, maybe we even read it again, wondering, “Did that just happen?…Oh it happened all right. She just took her clothes off. Okay, this chick is pretty hardcore.” Or something along those lines. Well this unsettling grand entrance also made an impression on Jena Malone, the actress who plays the District 7 Victor in “Catching Fire.”

“For me, it was one of the best introductions to a character that I had ever read,” Malone said. “It was one of my favorite scenes to film because I think I was so nervous about it because it’s so perfect and I wanted it to be absolutely perfect. When we got there, there were all these variables; we were shooting in a real hotel, in a real elevator, there’s only 49 floors, it’s only six seconds to do a full strip tease, there were all these things that weren’t in the script. I was like, ‘How do we do this?’”

Jena decided to cure her apprehension by practicing a speedy disrobing of the costume in her trailer. When it came time to shoot the elevator scene, she was prepared to rip it all off at the drop of a hat.

“By the end of it I was like boom, boom, boom, just ready [to take the costume off], like ‘Let’s just get naked.’ I didn’t even care if the cameras were rolling,” she remembered, laughing. “They’re like ‘No no no, Jena we’re not rolling yet!’”

‘Catching Fire’ Cast Talk Wedding Toasts and Bathroom Weapons in Unscripted Interview

‘Catching Fire’ Cast Talk Wedding Toasts and Bathroom Weapons in Unscripted Interview

Check out this interview with Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, and Jena Malone as they answer fan-submitted questions and some burning questions of their own, which range anywhere from a telepathically asked “What was your favorite part of shooting in Hawaii?” to the awkward “What issues did you have with your wetsuits?”

It’s just not a Jennifer interview if she isn’t talking about food and or pee. icon smile ‘Catching Fire’ Cast Talk Wedding Toasts and Bathroom Weapons in Unscripted Interview I thought it was cool to hear from the newcomers. Sam and Jena seem to fit right in, which is good considering this group will be together for two more films. And I had no idea Josh was half-cricket.

What were your favorite parts of the interview?

SamJena 600x600 Fansite Exclusive!  Interview With Sam Claflin & Jena Malone

We had the wonderful opportunity to join other awesome Hunger Games fansites in a phone interview with Sam Claflin (Finnick) and Jena Malone (Johanna) yesterday. Sam and Jena were absolutely the best and so funny! Here’s our interview with Sam and Jena!

CatchingFireMove.Org

How would you both define Finnick and Johanna’s friendship?

Sam: I wouldn’t. [laughs]

Jena: I think it’s beyond friendship and it’s just like family. Like they’ve drawn blood together. They’ve killed together, they’ve been tortured together.

Sam: They’ve been through a lot. There’s only a very few amount of people still alive that have lived through the experiences they’ve witnessed.

Jena: Kinda like military buddies, you know what I mean? They’ve been out in the field together and they’ve witnessed, you know, horrors together and that’s really bonded them forever.

The rest of the interviews after the break!

tumblr mrshcvhi5i1r9i187o2 1280 300x300 Johanna Mason Cover Story for Capitol Coutures Zoetic Sol Issue Two! District 7′s victor Johanna Mason is Zoetic Sol Issue Two for Capitol Couture online magazine!

The young District 7 victor takes glamour to new heights.

Johanna Mason may hail from the lumber district, but this slip of a victor is anything but green.  Don’t be swayed by her cinnamon sprinkle of freckles and delicate, doll-like features. She was one of the youngest tributes ever reaped in Hunger Games history and her agility with an axe resonates throughout Panem. Sly. Savage. Sangfroid. These are just a few of the adjectives tossed around to describe Mason, who’s known for disarming her victims by feigning weakness.

Read the rest at Capitol Couture!  It definitely sounds like Johanna!  Love it!

Posters of the 75th Hunger Games Tributes

Posters of the 75th Hunger Games Tributes

In anticipation of Comic-Con, new posters of the Quarter Quell tributes from ‘Catching Fire’ were released across a number of sites. This is the first time we’ve gotten to see some of these characters, but perhaps we’ll see a lot some more of them with the release of the 2nd trailer for the ‘Catching Fire’ movie at Comic-Con. Click on the thumbnails in the gallery below to see a larger version of the image.

What do you think of these photos? Is this what you expected? I personally thought they were going to give Jena Malone as Johanna Mason more of a punk look, and totally forgo Enobaria’s pointed teeth. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section.
