Did you manage to catch a glimpse of Hollywood actor Woody Harrelson around Ireland this weekend?! If so, we’re extremely jealous!

The actor was spotted grabbing a juice in Dalkey, hitting up Waterford’s Winterval festival with Keith Barry and er, paying bingo! 

The True Detective tried his arm at the game at The Forum in Waterford and many Twitter followers have been sharing their sights of the star. 

It looks as if he is certainly enjoying his trip here! Keep your eyes peeled now, ladies – if he was playing bingo in Waterford there is a high chance he could be in any four corners of Ireland at this stage… 


We all knew our beloved Jennifer Lawrence was a prankster – but this is just gross!

Her Hunger Games co-star, Liam Hemsworth, appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s show and described kissing Jennifer as ‘uncomfortable’. 

Why would kissing one of the world’s most beautiful women be uncomfortable?! 

Well, because it’s Jennifer so she used to eat tuna and garlic before the kissing scene, tell Liam and inform him she wasn’t going to brush her teeth – we LOVE it. It’s sick, but we love it. 

Watch the hilarious interview below. 



Some lovely baby news this morning! Hunger Games and America Beauty actor Wes Bentley has revealed he's become a father for the second time, with wife Jacqui Swedberg.

The couple welcomed their new daughter back in June but had kept things under wraps for four whole months, until Wes' rep finally confirmed the news to Us Weekly. Quite the achievement!

Wes and Jacqui have named their little one Brooklyn – we wonder what the Beckhams had to say about that?! 

The pair are already parents to three-year-old Charles. 

Before playing terrifying game maker Seneca Crane in the first Hunger Games film, Wes made a name for himself with his role as Ricky Fitts in the 1999 Oscar-winning American Beauty.

However an addiction to heroin and cocaine spanning ten years meant he was rarely in the spotlight afterwards. "I came to Hollywood and I got caught up in all the glitz and glamour of the nightlife,” he said in an interview about his decade-long battle with hard drugs, which he finally beat in 2009.

“All the stuff I had no idea about in Arkansas. In a way, it made me a little more prone to it. It was like looking behind the curtain. And I went behind the curtain and hung out.”

We're glad to hear Wes has moved on, and we wish the growing family all the best!



We're delighted! Actor Stanley Tucci and wife Felicity Blunt are expecting a child together!

Stanley revealed the news in an interview yesterday. "I'm very excited to be a dad. It's incredible," said the 53-year-old. 

The Hunger Games star met Felicity, sister of actress Emily Blunt, in 2006 during the filming of The Devil Wears Prada. They married during a secret ceremony in 2012 and this is their first child together.

Stanley said he thinks Felicity will be a "great" mother and admitted he has no preference for a girl or a boy. "I'm most excited to have a baby with Felicity and for the baby to be healthy… The sex is of no concern to me… The sex of the baby, that is." Cheeky!

Baby Tucci won't be short of a playmate anyway – Emily Blunt and husband John Krasinski welcomed their daughter Hazel back in February. 

And as for babysitters, Stanley already has three older children and two stepchildren with his late wife Kathryn who sadly died of breast cancer in 2009.

Congrats Stanley and Felicity!



Last month we were treated to the first sneak peek of the new Hunger Games film, Mockingjay Part 1, which comes out on November 21st. 

Now a second preview has been released and it's even MORE epic, if that's possible.

In the trailer, titled Return to District 12, Katniss is on her own with no Gale or Peeta to watch over her – and The Capitol know exactly what they need to do to bring her down.

Lorde's new song Yellow Flicker Beat, written especially for the film, is a great match for this new, darker trailer. We can't wait to see the movie in full! 



We're all for high-octane action films and worthy dramas, but sometimes we just want to chill out in front of a good chick flick. Every self-respecting movie fan should have a DVD collection comprising 80% rom-coms… that's our opinion anyway.

Now, it might not be Sleepless in Seattle or You've Got Mail, but we're loving this Hunger Games trailer rebranded as a rom-com!

Jimmy Kimmel gave the trailer for Mockingjay – Part One the lovey-dovey treatment with a punchy voiceover, pink font and even a Katherine Heigl cameo – because what romantic comedy is complete without a stunning blonde lead?!

We're super excited for the real movie, but let's face it, we'd probably buy tickets for this version too!




Jennifer Lawrence might be getting loved up with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin these days, but she also has some great friends to watch her back.

Her Hunger Games co-star Josh Hutcherson has spoken out about the recent leaked nude photos scandal – defending J-Law and the other actresses caught up in it.

“I just think all that stuff is so ridiculous," Josh said. "We're people too, man; we just want to live, we want to be normal people. It's not fair."

Josh was caught up in a leaked photo scandal himself last year, and he said he understands the difficulty of what Jennifer is going through.

“I think everyone has their own way of getting through it. It's something you obviously don't want to happen to you and it’s really unfortunate that it happens but, I don't know. I hate the way the world sort of views those sorts of issues,” the actor said.

He also criticised the negative reaction to the recent leak. “"We want to live our lives and be actors and like Jen and I always say…people say, 'Well, you chose to be an actor, you are going to have to deal with this kind of thing.' Well, no… it's not very fair.”

We agree, Josh! Maybe we could all be friends too?? 


One of our favourite Hunger Games actors Donald Sutherland who plays Katniss Everdeen's nemesis in the film, had something to say about an award he was granted at the Teen Choice Awards in Los Angeles. The veteran actor admitted he was less than impressed and let the audience know how he felt in the most spectacular fashion ever…we love him even more now!

Watch it here as Niamh Geaney reports.



It was only last June that True Blood star, Jim Parrack, finalised his divorce, but it seems he isn’t afraid to walk up the aisle again!

It has been revealed that the actor is now engaged to Hunger Games actress, Leven Rambin, after a four month romance.

The actor’s divorce from Ciera Danielle came after their separation last September after six years together.

This is the second engagement for Leven, who was previously set to marry Geoffrey James Clark, a producer.

Good luck top the happy couple on this lovely and exciting news!


For those Hunger Games fans out there, a new teaser trailer has emerged for the next instalment of the film series; Mocking Jay-Part 1 and you’re going to love it!

Check it out as Niamh Geaney reports.




It must be tough for the actors to be back on set after the death of their co-star Philip Seymour Hoffman, but the show must go on.

We have to say it is exciting to see the lovely Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth back as Katniss and Gale – we can’t wait for the next movie.



This honest trailer shows The Hunger Games: Catching Fire how it really is, they get it spot on!

So funny.
