Jennifer Lawrence Admits Embarrassing Encounter With Harrison Ford


Jennifer Lawrence Harrison Ford Jj Abrams Jack Whitehall Graham Norton

She’s the highest-earning actress in Hollywood, but it seems that not everybody knows who Jennifer Lawrence is, as she revealed an embarrassing recent encounter when Harrison Ford gave her a blank stare of non-recognition.

The 25 year old star of X-Men Apocalypse was chatting with British TV host Graham Norton this week, filming an episode of his chat show that is due to air on Friday evening (May 13th). Recollecting the highly awkward incident, she said it happened earlier this year when she was on a night out with comedian Jack Whitehall, and spotted the Han Solo actor dining with Star Wars: The Force Awakens director Jj Abrams.

Jennifer Lawrence Embarrassed Herself In Front Of Harrison Ford


Jennifer Lawrence Harrison Ford Jj Abrams

The Hunger Games star was partying in London with British comedian Jack Whitehall when she thought it would be a good idea to approach the Star Wars actor and director and entertain them with a dance. But unfortunately for Jennifer, the pair didn't find her antics funny because they were clueless about who she was.

"I never assume anyone knows who I am, but when I spotted Harrison Ford and J.J. Abrams I was like, ‘It’ll be fine, we’re all co-workers, right!,'" she tells U.K. chat show Graham Norton. "So I went up to them and started dancing like an idiot and the whole table just went quiet and stared at me. I realised while I am dancing that they had absolutely no idea who I was so I just turned around and walked back to Jack dying of embarrassment."

The Hollywood star's humiliation was made even worse when she discovered Harrison knew who Jack was, even though he is little known outside the U.K., because he had appeared with the veteran actor together on a show.

J.j. Abrams Sings Star Wars Track On Broadway


Jj Abrams Lin-Manuel Miranda

The director recruited Miranda to compose the cantina music heard in background of one of the scenes in The Force Awakens after checking out his hit hip-hop musical last year (15).

Together, they created Jabba Flow, a tune featuring lyrics in the fictional language of Huttese, and on Wednesday (04May16), J.J. and Lin performed the song live to celebrate Star Wars Day, the unofficial holiday for fans of the sci-fi franchise.

The performance was part of Lin's Ham4Ham show, a weekly event presented to entertain the hundreds of fans hoping to win the lottery for a ticket to the popular musical. The Ham4Ham show often features a special guest, and Lin brought out J.J. to sing on the steps of the Richard Rodgers Theater, where Hamilton is staged.

'Green Room' Tops Our List Of 2016's Most Exciting Horrors


Patrick Stewart Imogen Poots Stephen King Anton Yelchin Jj Abrams John Goodman Natalie Dormer Sarah Wayne Callies

This year is quite the year for horror. We've already seen a good handful of epic chillers and it's not stopping there. Stephen King's 'Cell' is the latest movie to be announced for release later this year, but here's a look at what we've seen so far and what's to come this summer. 

Green RoomMeet the band in exhilarating horror 'Green Room'

1. Green Room - Patrick Stewart as a ruthless psychopath determined to murder a punk band may seem an unlikely concept but that's what makes this nerve shredding horror (directed by Jeremy Saulnier of 'Blue Ruin') so grippingly intense. When a band shows up at neo-Nazi bar for a show, they unwittingly find themselves witnesses to a brutal murder - and now they're next on the hitlist. Alongside Patrick Stewart, the movie also stars Joe Cole from 'Peaky Blinders', '28 Weeks Later' actress Imogen Poots and 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star Anton Yelchin.

J.j. Abrams: 'Harrison Ford's Injury Helped Me Figure Out Star Wars Film Flaw'


Jj Abrams Harrison Ford

Production on the film was shut down for three weeks in 2014 when Ford was seriously injured after getting trapped by the door of the Millennium Falcon spaceship, and the time off actually gave Abrams a chance to figure out a filming flaw.

During a Tribeca Film Festival interview in New York, he revealed, "I was on the set of the Millennium Falcon, and we started working with (characters) Rey and Finn; the first time we did it, it didn't work at all as we wrote it. They were much more contentious.

"I didn't direct it right. It was set up all wrong. And when Harrison Ford got injured, which was a very scary day, we ended up having a few weeks off. And it was during that time that I really got to look at what we had done and rethink it, and then rewrite quite a bit of that relationship.

Just when you thought film awards season was over, the 2016 Jameson Empire Awards rolled in last night (March 20th 2016) to heap some much deserved praise on the epic of the year 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'; a film which didn't manage to land an Oscar and wasn't even recognised at the Golden Globes in spite of its enormous appeal.

The film won Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy, beating 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2', 'Jurassic World', 'Mad Max: Fury Road' and 'The Martian'. However, it was beaten to Best Film (presented by Sky Movies) over all by Leonardo DiCaprio's 'The Revenant'.

The British actress shot to international fame after being cast in the latest installment of the sci-fi franchise, Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens. Her role as Rey has won her countless fans and awards, including Female Newcomer at Sunday night’s (20Mar16) Jameson Empire Awards.

While Star Wars may have made her a bona fide A-lister, Daisy doesn’t want the world to see how she landed the part.

“Everyone else’s (audition tape) is great. John’s (Boyega) is on the internet already, he’s always great,” she smiled to Britain’s Metro newspaper.
