I have to admit, I was worried about getting a little Jennifer Lawrence-d out andÂ Catching FireÂ still won’t be released about another week. Â I know it’s probably not possible to O.D. on J-Law, but nevertheless I’m relieved that Jena Malone made an appearance onÂ Late Night With Jimmy Fallon last night. Â Don’t get me wrong, I could listen to J-Law talk about body image, the hyper-sexualization of young girls, and her love of food all the live long day. Â It’s just that the entireÂ Hunger Games series has such great supporting characters – it’s not fair that we usually only get to hear form Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, much as I adore them in all their adorable glory.
Jena showcased her talent for playing her own version of Jenga on top of her head (as one does when they’re a guest of Jimmy Fallon’s), and also sat down to chat about her love forÂ Hunger GamesÂ fans. Â Side note: am I the only one who still thinks of Jena as the adorably bitchy tween inÂ Stepmom? I mean I know I’ve watched her inÂ Cold Mountain,Â Saved!, andÂ Pride and Prejudice, but this whole chic, adult Jena is kind of blowing me away here. Â Mostly because it makes me feel old.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m looking forward to seeing Johanna Mason whip out her ax and take on Katniss inÂ Catching Fire. Â In the meantime, I’ll be waiting for Stanley Tucci and Elizabeth Banks to make their respectiveÂ Late ShowÂ Â appearances, please and thanks.
