INTERVIEW: The Hunger Games cast shares hilarious behind-the-scenes stories & bloopers with E!

E! caught up with The Hunger Games stars, Amandla Stenberg and Jackie Emerson recently where the two shared some funny behind-the-scenes stories and bloopers that happened on set.
Katniss the Sloppy Smoocher? So says Jackie and Amandla! We asked the gals if there was anything to watch for this go-round—you know, those real specific details that only the actors would know about. There aren't any loopholes, per say, but there is what Amandla describes as a "gross spit bubble."

"During [Rue's] death, [Jennifer Lawrence] kisses her head and it leaves a little spit bubble and every time we see it we just crack up," Jacqueline explained, causing Amandla to confess, "Everyone is always making fun of me because of that." 
A Tree by Any Other Name: "One time, Jen and I were filming in this tree and we kept sliding down, so I found this little hole in the tree where I could sit," Amandla told us. "Right before we're about to go, they call ‘Action!' and I start sliding down and I freaked out so I yelled out, ‘Wait, wait! I can't find my butt hole!' And everyone started cracking up, and I really hope that they saved that, that'd be hilarious to watch." 
Grab Your Gas Masks: "There were a lot of funny bloopers. I think the funniest was probably when we were filming the training center scene," Jacqueline laughed to us. "We were all standing around and one of the tributes, who shall remain unnamed, walked all the way across the platform right when Gary [Ross] called rolling, stood in front of Jack Quaidand let out a massive fart, then walked back to his place, right as Gary called action. "
Effie would never! Jackie continued, "We all just lost it. Like, everybody was cracking up and we finally kind of pulled ourselves together, doing the scene and then you see [Alexander Ludwig]'s shoulders start to shake and Dayo Okeniyi's head goes down to the floor and everyone loses it again and Gary was just like ‘OK, go home.'" 
A Summer to Remember: We asked the girls what their favorite scene to film was and one answer may surprise you. "I have to say probably the bloodbath scene, the big fight at the Cornucopia," Jacqueline admitted. "With anything that kind of happened with the Cornucopia field, I think about how we'd all be playing ninja and Concentration and frisbee and stuff behind the scenes. We called it Camp Hunger Games, it was like a glorified version of summer camp."
Too bad there won't be bloopers on the Blu-ray/DVD. These stories are so funny!
