VIDEO: Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth On Wild German TV Show To Launch Mockingjay Tour
Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth kicked off their massive press tour for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 with a joint appearance on the delightfully bizarre German talk show “Wetten, dass..?” on Saturday.
It’s a little hard to follow the action, since the whole thing is in German, with Lawrence and Hemsworth’s English responses being translated for the audience. But the conversation is still worth watching. Lawrence explains from the start that she’s a bit under the weather, and repeatedly apologizes to the hosts and warns them not to get too close to her. She talks about being a One Direction fan, on-screen kissing, and how much she loves to visit Germany.
Hemsworth mentions that his mother was a sex education teacher, leading to some awkward moments given the language barrier. We also get to hear Lawrence tell Hemsworth, “Your mother gave you chlamydia!”
Lawrence and Hemsworth were then asked to bet on a really intense challenge in which an acrobatic man did backflips while his pals tried to build a tower of blocks beneath him. If that sounds both confusing and strangely mesmerizing, that’s because it’s German television. Next, Hemsworth and Lawrence were asked to decorate cakes. She made one with a horse head. The stars then took their cakes into the audience. While it’s never entirely clear what’s happening on “Wetten, dass..?” it’s still nice to see Lawrence back on the talk show circuit, smiling and having fun after the nude photo hacking that plagued her and other actresses.
