‘Hunger Games’ On-Set Pranks Revealed!

It’s a no brainer that every movie set with a young cast is going to have some level of pranking. With so many props and opportunites to trick a co-star, the temptation is too much to turn away from.

In a recent interview with MTV, Hunger Games cast members, Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth opened up about some of their tomfoolery when the cameras weren’t rolling! Unfortunately for 21-year-old Jennifer, she was the target of Josh’s best prank.

“They had a full life-sized dummy of one of our tributes that had gotten killed by a Tracker Jacker, and basically it’s all swollen and gnarly-looking and mangled,” Josh,19, said. “Jennifer was out of her trailer so I took the dummy and put it inside her bathroom. I wasn’t there for the big moment when she saw it, but I’ve been told that she actually peed her pants in reaction to it. So, I was pretty proud of myself.”

Jennifer, 21, says it’s a prank she’s not sure she’ll be able to top.

“I’m in my trailer and open the bathroom door and scream and my friend grabs me and had to say, ‘It’s fake, it’s fake, it’s fake!’ I don’t know what to do to get him back for something like that. I’d have to find a real dead body.”

That’s not to say Jennifer was innocent to all things funny. 22-year-old Liam revealed that she had her own way of making mischief in between takes.

Jennifer would often try and make you laugh just before ‘Action!'” he said. “She’d say something funny. She’d get you and really surprise you because you’d be rolling up, ready for them to say ‘Action,’ and she’d ask you some silly question about something. You’d hear it and be like, ‘Wait, what?’ and then ‘Action!’ and you’d be like, ‘OK. Thanks for that.'”
