This clip from American Hustle didn’t make the original cut.

When you watch it you may be surprised as it is a full four minutes of Jennifer Lawrence is all of her glory; singling, dancing and looking hilarious.

Jennifer did make it into American Hustle lip-syncing to Paul McCartney’s ‘Wings’ as well as her own rendition of ‘Live and let Die’, but we love this!

Hoovering, lip-syncing and dancing, Jennifer takes Santana’s ‘Evil Ways’ to another level.

What do you think?



Didn’t think the awkward sex scenes between Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlet Johansson’s voice in Her could be worse? Try watching them as Broadway musical numbers.

Online media company Wayside Creations have turned this year’s Best Picture nominees into musicals worthy of a stage.

12 Years a Slave is probably our favourite.



We love this girl!

Despite her multiple wins in the past, Jennifer Lawrence didn’t believe she’d won the award for Best Supporting Actress for American Hustle at this year’s BAFTAs.

The Oscar-winner was forced to skip the ceremony due to filming commitments on X-Men: Days of Future Past and the news was delivered by someone on set.

Jen has been neck-in-neck with Lupita Nyong’o from 12 Years a Slave since awards season started and was also up against Julia Roberts, Oprah Winfrey and Sally Hawkins in this category.

When asked about her win by Deadline, she said: “Oh, it was a big surprise. I didn’t remember that the BAFTAs were happening that day. I certainly did not think I was going to win one, so I put it out of my mind. So there I was, in the middle of being painted blue, and someone said, ‘You just won the BAFTA!’ And I said, ‘Oh, go f**k yourself!’ And then it turned out they were serious.”

Never a dull moment with Jennifer – we can’t wait to see what happens at the Oscars!



Oh Jen, you really do keep us young.

The starlet has spoken about her disappointment following the kissing scenes she shared with on-screen husband Christian Bale in new movie American Hustle.

American Hustle director David O. Russell, who was spilling the beans on Jen’s real thoughts on her scenes with Christian Bale, recalls her saying: “I finally get to make out with Christian Bale and he’s a really fat guy. He’s Fatman, not Batman.”

To be fair, Bale isn’t exactly in the best shape of his life in the film and is a long way from his portrayal of Bruce Wayne in the Batman franchise, but for someone who got make out on screen with Bradley Cooper, we feel you have nothing to complain about, Jennifer!



Awards season is upon us so we decided to take a look at five of the movies you NEED to watch before settling in with a hot water bottle (or any other bottle of your choice) to watch the Oscars this year.

1. Gravity
This movie is entirely set in space –  a “3D science fiction thriller” if you will. This made us sceptical to say the least. “It’s basically Open Water in space” was one of the quotes floating around in relation to the movie, but it’s actually a very impressive film. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney are the story’s two stars and Bullock has impressed critics everywhere with her performance as astronaut Dr Ryan Stone.

2. Philomena
A British comedy-drama set in Britain, Ireland and the US, this movie starring Judi Dench and Steve Coogan has created quite a stir. Based on the true story of Limerick woman Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), the movie follows Lee’s journey to find her son who was taken off her at the convent in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, where she was kept during her pregnancy 1960’s. A truly inspiring and heart breaking tale with a light comedic touch that is worth seeing;  if even just for the relevance of what so many women in Ireland went through at the time.

3. American Hustle
Jennifer Lawrence. Need we say more? Christian Bale. There we go! A fast paced, interesting and vibrant movie that is far from let down by its impressive cast. A little on the hard side to explain, the movie involves con artists, robbery and politicians. Well worth seeing and it is sure to be a hit at the Oscars this year.

4. 12 Years a Slave
Based on a true story, the movie on everybody’s lips this week is 12 Years a Slave. It has been predicted that this will win massively at the Oscars this year. Starring Chiwetel Ejiofor as Soloman Northup, a free man who is kidnapped and sold into slavery in post-civil war America and whose autobiography was the inspiration for the movie. The movie also stars our very own and very lovely Michael Fassbender, alongside Brad Pitt.

5. The Wolf of Wall Street
Oh Leo. We want you to get the Oscar you deserve so much this year – it’s been a long time coming. The movie, a black comedy directed by Martin Scorsese, revolves around stockbroker Belfort (Leonardo Di Caprio) who works at a firm on Wall Street during the nineties, engaging in fraud and corruption. Set to be huge, it will be released in Ireland on the 17th January.
