‘Girl on fire’ is the nickname for Hunger Games character Katniss Everdeen, but it’s just as apt for the actress who plays her, Jennifer Lawrence. As she continues to blaze through Hollywood, the 22-year-old Oscar-winner is set to take on a new role in movie-making: producing. Lawrence will star in and produce The Rules of Inheritance, EW has confirmed. Susanne Bier, who won an Oscar for her Danish film In a Better World, is set to direct.
The film is an adaptation of the memoir of the same name by Claire Bidwell Smith, about the hardships she went through when both of her parents were diagnosed with cancer when she was 14.
Producing alongside Lawrence will be Bruce Cohen, who worked with Lawrence on Silver Linings Playbook. Abi Morgan (The Iron Lady) is writing the script.

Is there anyone in Hollywood you’d still like to work with?
Jennifer Lawrence. I think she’s wonderful. I voted for her for the Oscar. I’d love to play her grandfather or something.
Kay Montano revealed how she did The Hunger Games star’s make-up for the Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of Plains Indian) premiere at the Cannes Film Festival
YAHOO.COM – Jennifer Lawrence wowed on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival this weekend in a beautiful Dior frock and stunning make-up look.
The Hunger Games actress was one of our favourites from the night as she posed for photographed with tousled locks, golden tan and striking pink lips.
We spoke exclusively to the 22-year-old star’s make-up artist to find out how created Jennifer’s red-carpet make-up look at Cannes.
“Jennifer really loves having [Brigitte] Bardot eyes,” said her MUA, Kay Montano.
“She prefers dark eyes and no lips but I just said ‘Shall we try a lip this time, it’ll be more fun!’” she said of her inspiration behind her make-up look.
Kay admitted that the Silver Linings Playbook star sometimes needs persuading to try new make-up looks – but she was willing to try a bright pink lip for the Cannes premiere.
“She knows that she’s wearing Dior and she’s playing a part,” Kay told us.
Once she’d seen that Jennifer was wearing a monochrome Dior gown and that hairstylist Mark Townsend was giving her a tousled hair look, she got started on her red-carpet beauty look.
Jennifer and the cast of ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ attended the Cannes Film Festival yesterday and stopped on the red carpet of the Capital-inspired party to talk about what fans can expect in the movie and her first experience at Cannes.
Director Bryan Singer tweeted an image of Jennifer donning her Mystique costume for the upcoming “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

The Capitol Collection will debut new products later this year tied to the release of the sequel.
HOLLYWOODREPORTER.COM – Now you can look like Katniss Everdeen.
overGirl is teaming up with Lionsgate for a makeup collection tied to the late-November release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the follow-up to the 2012 blockbuster. The Capitol Collection, featuring new products inspired by the film, will hit stores later this year. The cosmetics company did not reveal product details.

All of us at CoverGirl were captivated by Suzanne Collins’ novels and the first film, so we’re thrilled to collaborate with Lionsgate on such a bold beauty partnership with the release of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
TOTALFILM.COM – As Jennifer Lawrence is possibly the most in-demand actress in Hollywood right now, it should come as little surprise that she landed a spot in Total Film’s Future 100: our preview of the hottest incoming movies, stars and trends.
Inside the brand new issue of Total Film magazine, she tells us about her meteoric rise and blazing future, talking about everything from ‘indies vs blockbusters’, to her own acting methods.
Here’s an excerpt of what she had to say on The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, where the pressure of matching the predecessor seems to have caused her no panic:
“If possible, there was even less preparation because I was like, ‘I’ve done this before’,” she said. “We had a lot of the same crew. Josh [Hutcherson] and Liam [Hemsworth] were there. Normally, when I do a movie, I’m meeting people for the first time, so it was amazing to be able to have the same group of people. It was so fun.”
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens in the UK on 22 November 2013.

Thanks to the always wonderful Claudia, I have added some gorgeous new photos of Jen from last night’s ‘PUNK: Chaos To Couture’ Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. She looked stunning in a black Christian Dior dress and jewelry, completing the look with shoes by Brian Atwood and a Jennifer Behr voilette. What did you think of Jen’s look?
Jennifer fully admitted on the Met Gala’s vogue.com red carpet livestream tonight that “I never went through the punk phase. I guess tonight I’m supposed to say ‘yes’ but no. I was a cheerleader.”
