Honey Boo Boo, Chris Brown And Panem: 10 Signs The Mayan Apocalypse Really Should Happen Now

Chris Brown's tattoo, Honey Boo Boo-inspired porn among the 10 reasons the world should just end already

So folks at NASA and archaeologists and real news reporters are trying to tell everyone to simmer down about the apocalypse coming on December 21, because of science and stuff. But we’re beginning to suspect differently. Even if the Mayans themselves didn’t think the end of the 13th baktun (things we’ve learned this week!) didn’t actually meant the end of the world, we’ve noticed some signs that really, we should just give up and retreat to our bunkers right now. Let us count down our top 10:

Gossip Girl

10. Gossip Girl was Dan Humphrey all along! (And also, everyone on the island was dead!) Oof. The resolutions of series-long mysteries are never as good as we want them to be, probably much like the answers to life’s big questions. Bleh.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West

9. All the hip-hop greats are running corporations, starring on reality-TV shows or dating the stars of reality-TV shows. Not that they shouldn’t trade thug life for the good life, but did they have to sell their artistic souls in the process?

Jennifer Lawrence Named Most Desirable Women Of 2012, Find Out Who Else Made The Top 10!

Jennifer Lawrence named most desirable woman

Excuse us while we let out a prolonged “duh!” Hunger Games franchise queen Jennifer Lawrence is beloved all over the world for her acting skillz, refreshing real talk and (of course) her gorgeous style and super hot bod. And now AskMen.com just bestowed upon her the title of Most Desirable Woman of the Year! 2012 has definitely been the year of the J-Law, since her record busting turn as Katniss Everdeen earlier this year. She’s covered W, Vogue and Elle magazine, become the new face of Dior, and most recently switched it up with the indie cred-getting Playbook Silver Linings. That’s a hell of a year for anyone, let alone a 22 year old!

And now she can add Most Desirable Woman to her impressive trophy stash! It’s a pretty serious honor when you consider her stiff competition, including the likes of pop goddess Rihanna, Esquire’s respective sexiest women of the year Miranda Kerr and Mila Kunis, runner/YouTube celebrity Michelle Jenneke and SI covergirl Kate Upton. Head on down to the gallery below to see how they ranked, and which other lovely ladies made it into the top 10.

Mags, Tridents, Sam Claflin In A Wetsuit: There’s A Lot Of Important Info In The New Catching Fire Pics

What’s that one scene in Catching Fire where Katniss looks like a total bad ass? Just kidding, that’s every single scene. Photos from the Hawaii set of the Hunger Games sequel are hitting the interwebs, so it only seems helpful to break down what America is looking at. Based on the fact our tributes are perched on top of individual platforms in the photos, it looks like we’re at the Quarter Quell. The Quarter Quell occurs at the very beginning of the 75th Hunger Games, the moment before the real good stuff starts. And the good stuff starts very quickly. Did you notice that somebody is wielding a trident?

Jennifer Lawrence Spends Thanksgiving Weekend Beach-Side In Hawaii

Jennifer Lawrence vacations in Hawaii

Jennifer Lawrence has been in Maui, Hawaii filming the next Hunger Games installment, Catching Fire and sadly wasn’t able to return to her hometown of Louisville for the Thanksgiving  holiday. But luckily her family came to her, with her mother, father and brother joining her out on the beaches for the weekend! “My dad won’t have a deep fryer so I don’t know what he’s going to do,” she jokingly told E! News.

She was also without her boyfriend Nick Hoult for the holiday, which must have been a bummer. But still, compared to the brawl at Halle Berry’s house, and Lady Gaga’s home getting invaded by fans, we’d say that Jennifer won out for the better celeb Turkey Day. The gorgeous 22-year old actress gave one more thing to be thankful for this year as she hit the sand in a bikini top and colorful skirt! Head on down to the gallery below for more!

Jennifer Lawrence Tells Leno Of Her Love For Honey Boo Boo, Deep-Fried Cheese Steak, Old Strippers

When we first saw an excerpt of Jennifer Lawrence on The Tonight Show, it was all about her “Fat Witch” Halloween costume, and we loved it. But then we saw the whole thing and realized that is the mere tip of the iceberg of the awesomeness that was this interview. We already knew the Catching Fire star loves eating Cheetos with her great boyfriend Nicholas Hoult and doesn’t care that she’s not twig-skinny like most Hollywood stars, but here are new things we learned about the endearingly normal, self-deprecating star as she promoted the Silver Linings Playbook last night.

  • She got into a car wreck a couple of weeks ago because she mistook a breast cancer parade for a Honey Boo Boo parade while driving home from the Catching Fire set in Georgia. “It said ‘boobs’ on the [sign] but I thought it was saying Boo Boo,” she explained of how she rear-ended someone. She had to tell the person she ran into, “I’m sorry that I hit your family. I thought I saw Honey Boo Boo. Please forgive me.”
  • On another Georgia adventure, she found herself at a “dive bar with senior citizen strippers,” getting a lap dance from an aggressive Bo Peep, who warned her not to touch her when she bent down, and “then she inserted her breast into my mouth.” Jen still tipped her, though.

Mockingjay Films To Be Directed By Catching Fire Helmer Francis Lawrence

Mockingjay, the final part of the Hunger Games, will be two films directed by Francis Lawrence

We haven’t heard a whole lot of news updates coming out of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire shoot going on in Atlanta — the few pictures we’ve seen do look appropriately awesome, though — but it must be going well. Well enough that Lionsgate has opted not to go the Twilight/Harry Potter route of having a different director for almost each installment. Deadline reports today that Catching Fire helmer Francis Lawrence will be directing the adaptation of Mockingjay, the third book in Suzanne Collins‘ dystopian trilogy. As had been previously announced, that third book will be divided into two movies, slated for release in November 2014 and 2015. That’s quite the vote of confidence, and it’s making us all the more excited for a peek at Catching Fire.

10 Post-Apocalyptic Movie Options To Help Keep Hurricane Sandy In Perspective

You heard the man! Earlier today NYC’s Mayor Bloomberg instructed those who are living in areas affected by Hurricane Sandy to “just stay hunkered in to your home and have a sandwich out of the fridge and sit back and watch television.” Seeing as how you are probably about to watch yet another movie during your Hurricane Sandy free day, we thought we’d offer some film selections that will make today’s rainy, wind-swept citywide freeze seem more manageable by comparison. Hey…at least Sandy’s not a zombie hurricane, right? Right.

Bradley Cooper Jokes About Hunger Games Role, But We’re Not Joking. Fantasy Casting, Ho!

Bradley Cooper Jokes About Hunger Games Role

Bradley Cooper wants a role in the Hunger Games trilogy, Bradley Cooper gets a role in the Hunger Games trilogy. That’s how we feel about it anyway. “I have now seen Hunger Games. That is a brutal movie. Are you kidding me?…Oh, my God!” the Silver Linings Playbook actor gushed at the Hollywood Awards last night, raving about his “bad ass” costar Jennifer Lawrence‘s fine work as Katniss. Joked Cooper, “You know, I’ve put myself on tape for four of the roles. I haven’t heard back yet.” Oh, you might be joking Bradley, but HG casting is no joke to us. Whether you actually submit for a role or Jennifer just tells Francis Lawrence or whatever director they’re using for the final film to hire you, we demand to see you in Mockingjay Part 1 and/or Part 2 immediately. Or in 2014, which ever comes first. Catching Fire is already shooting, but as far as we know, there are a few roles in the last two movies that are yet uncast:

Happy 20th Birthday, Josh Hutcherson! Celebrate With His 20 Hottest Looks

Josh Hutcherson's 20 Hottest Looks on His 20th Birthday

Two things the doubters doubted: That Peeta Mellark would make it to his 20th birthday, and that Josh Hutcherson would make a convincing Peeta Mellark. Well, I guess I won’t spoil Peeta’s fate for the five of you out there who haven’t read the entire Hunger Games trilogy, but we’re so pleased that the latter came true this year. We imagine the adorable star is probably celebrating his 20th birthday today while surrounded by evil monkeys and electrocuting lakes while filming Catching Fire, so it’s up to us to fete him in a more, well, comfortable manner. We’re looking back at his 20 hottest looks — from casual awards-show looks, to fierce gun-toting on Red Dawn, to dapper red carpet suits. Take a look and tell us you don’t wish he’d come over and decorate a cake for you sometime.
