In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly (on newsstands January 18), the mag travels to Waikiki, Hawaii, to chat with the cast and crew of "Hunger Games" sequel "Catching Fire." Below, interview highlights with Jennifer Lawrence and franchise newcomer Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick Odair.

Check out the full-size EW cover photo of Lawrence and Claflin here. More no-bullshit quotes from Lawrence's recent Vanity Fair spread are here.

Lawrence on speaking her mind, and avoiding pleasant soundbites:

“It’s almost like I subconsciously don’t want to work anymore so I’m trying to ruin my career… I’m so aware of all the b.s. that surrounds Hollywood, and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they’re curing cancer and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it. So I go in the exact opposite direction and end up saying something like ‘I’m pregnant!’ when I’m in two franchises.”

On her awkward first meeting with "Catching Fire" director Francis Lawrence:

“I spit egg inside his mouth when I was talking. Into his mouth.”

Claflin on filming the infamous "sugar cube scene," in which he wears only strategically-placed netting:

“[It was] the scariest moment of my life. I’m on Twitter and so many people have been like ‘Don’t mess this up, or we will kill you.’”
