This Liam Hemsworth And Josh Hutcherson Jealousy Over Jennifer Lawrence Doesn’t Fit Into The Best Friend Fantasy I Have In My Head

So yesterday we shared the exciting news that Jennifer Lawrence would be making ten million dollars for playing Katniss Everdeen in Catching Fire. Which is awesome, because not only did she do a kickass job in The Hunger Games, but she’s also now an in-demand actress who I believe is slated to star in 73% of films premiering in 2013.

Apparently while I blasted girl power music (sponsored by the Spice Girls hits of the ’90s) and danced around in celebration that she got a $9,500,000 pay increase, Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson called their agents to complain.

You see, Peeta and Gale want more money too. Five million dollars each to be exact.  Which wouldn’t be a problem if it wasn’t being reported by Radar Online as a contentious jealousy-fueled rage filled with threats and other horrible words that don’t fit into the Jennifer Lawrence/Josh Hutcherson/Liam Hemsworth best friendship that I have pictured in my head.

I imagine them all hanging out on and off the set, building up that magical chemistry that will get translated to screen in Catching Fire, Mockingjay: Part 1and Mockingjay: Part 2. So it hurts when I hear that Liam and Josh are threatening not to return to the movie if they don’t get their raise.

How could they abandon our gal pal Jennifer Lawrence like that?! How can they abandon us?!

While we know they’ll get their raises and while we know that they’ll film Catching Fire, we also now know that they’re not all exchanging friendship bracelets and inside jokes via Gchat stauses like we thought. They’re regular co-workers who demand fair treatment from their boss. Ugh, isn’t the worse when celebrities are just like us?

      I think this is largely baloney (LOL!)…they’ll get their raise but, Jennifer Lawrence carried the film and does deserve 10 million or more. I tend to think it’s baloney (the part about the jealousy, contention that is, ) because it’s coming from Radar. These guys have always seemed very appreciative and professional and the The Hunger Games set had a reputation for being drama free. I think it’s gossip rags like Radar trying to stir shit up, that’s all.

      Biggest BS story I heard in a while.

      Jennifer and Josh definitely deserve a raise, but Liam? Did anyone actually SEE the movie? He had like.. 3 lines and MAYBE five minutes of screen time. Although I hear Gale is a lot more important in the 2nd and 3rd books, I don’t think he’s earned a raise yet.

      Lawrence is the lead role! I can’t believe this is even a controversy that she’s getting
      paid more! I know when I take the lead on an assignment for my job at Dish, I expect
      to get the credit for it. These guys need to suck it up! I’m sure they will end
      up making tons anyways. The first movie racked in loads of cash in theaters.
      And it will definitely make a bunch more on DVD, since I couldn’t be the only
      one that has a copy preordered to rent. Since I can reserve even the most
      popular movies from the Blockbuster@Home service through my Dish account, I’m
      already set for it to deliver to my house on the release date. Lawrence deserves all the success that has and will come to her!

        Marsha, do you work for Dish?

        Do you really believe this story is real?

      I can definately see the increase for Jen for Catching Fire!!!! But I think the 2 million offered to Josh and Liam is more than fair. I mean Liam was hardly in the Hunger Games and is just going to have a little bit more for Catching Fire. I could see Josh getting paid a little more than Liam for Catching Fire but Liam more than Josh for Mockingjay since Peeta spends 3/4 of the book captured.
