Here are the 6 entertainment headlines you can’t miss today:
1. Jennifer Lawrence: Life coach? Two months after his engagement to Miley Cyrus ended, Liam Hemsworth told the Associated Press that he feels “more centered and grounded than I’ve ever been.” The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star credits his new found clarity to surfing, kickboxing—and his Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence. “For a few years I went down a path where I forgot to be in the moment and enjoy the moment,” Hemsworth admitted. “But being around someone like Jen, who is so honest and laughs all day long, I am forced to be in the right now. I’m much happier.” [People]
2. It’s a Wonderful…er Life? Not likely. Plans for the proposed sequel to the iconic 1946 holiday classic have hit a snag. “No project relating to It’s a Wonderful Life can proceed without a license from Paramount,” the studio noted. ”To date, these individuals have not obtained any of the necessary rights, and we would take all appropriate steps to protect those rights.” The idea for a proposed sequel has been mostly met with public outrage. “I don’t know if they have a title yet, but if not, I have a suggestion. I would call it ‘It’s a Terrible Idea,’” joked Jimmy Kimmel. [ABC News]
