Liam Hemsworth once said that, Jennifer Lawrence had just had tuna fish and garlic sandwich before the kissing scene between his and her character was shot. So when Liam was asked about that he said, it wasn't a pleasant kissing experience.
Jlaw as always, jokingly said, she would have definitely brushed her teeth and maybe even pop a mint if she were to kiss her 'Silver Lining Playbook' co-star, Bradley Cooper! Well, our Jennifer has said such many funny things that would make you laugh hard.
The song 'Hanging Tree' from Mockinjay, which is sung by Jennifer Lawrence, was to be sung by Lorde. Jlaw refused to sing as she hold a husky voice and wanted Lorde to sing it. But the actress had to sing as the director insisted.
