“Hunger Games” Stars Honored With Chinese Handprint Ceremony — PHOTOS!
Conan O’Brien served as one of the ceremony’s speakers, talking about both the significance of the handprint tradition in Hollywood and the monster success of the Hunger Games franchise. “That’s right, ladies and gentlemen. I’m the one you’re really here to see,” he joked at the start of his speech. Later when he misspoke, O’Brien noted the date and quipped, “I’ve been drinking; I get started earlier on Halloween.”
Lawrence, Hemsworth, and Hutcherson all said a few words, expressing gratitude for their friendship and their fans. Together they placed their hands and feet in the wet cement, and each also used an implement to write their names. They also received certificates to mark the milestone.
The event was held less than a month before the final installment in the film series hits theaters. Mockingjay — Part 2 opens on November 20. A world premiere will take place in Berlin next week, with the cast then traveling the globe for their final press tour together. See photos from the handprint ceremony below!
