“But I don’t want to talk about it because I’m not here to talk about that, but it’s horrible and disgusting that people need to invade other people’s privacy the way they do.

It’s fucking horrible and it makes me angry.”This year The Hunger Games also had to contend with the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, who died during the shooting of the final two Hunger Games films.

A studio executive reported that he had one major emotional scene in Part 2 left to shoot.

As with the final book of the , Part 1 and Part 2, which is scheduled to come out in November next year.

‘I wanna try to take him down.’ You have to be careful.”He should be used to coming under attack by now.

Peeta Mellark, his character in The Hunger Games, is a contestant in a game in which the victor is whoever doesn’t get killed.
