The Hunger Games UK premiere

So I went along to the European premiere of The Hunger Games tonight at London’s O2 Arena. Unfortunately, I arrived too late get VIP access and the opportunity to watch the movie, but I did manage to get a good spot. All the main cast were there- Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Elizabeth Banks and Liam Hemsworth. They were all lovely and spent a lot of time signing autographs to the hundreds of screaming fans.

Other notable appearance were from Chris Hemsworth and Nicholas Hoult. They were polar opposites of each other- Chris was the friendliest of all and Nicholas (Jennifer’s boyfriend!) barely signed anything and headed straight into the cinema. Other “celebs” such as Katie Price, Michelle Heaton and Jenny Frost. I think a couple of TOWIE/ Made in Chelsea were there too, but I cannot be sure. Edith Bowman presented the coverage for the BBC plus other reporters for Yahoo and Sky News were doing the rounds.

Anyway, here are the pictures I took tonight:

I couldn’t get a great picture of Elizabeth Banks because her minder/security guard was in the way at all times. I definitely like Chris the most from this experience because although the other three gave a lot of time signing, he seemed to be the only one enjoying it (which is weird considering it isn’t even his movie!) He spoke to the fans, whereas Jennifer didn’t speak at all (and she’s the lead character!) and Elizabeth’s minder just batted people away. The boys were definitely nicer- except Nicholas Hoult, who couldn’t have got into the cinema quick enough!!

I was sad that Stanley Tucci and Woody Harrelson didn’t come, but I suppose you can’t expect every cast member to turn up.

The Hunger Games is released in the UK on Friday 23rd March.

Lily Allen has baby girl

Lily Allen has given birth to a little girl finally after all her heartache with previous miscarriages.

While Lily and her husband have yet to confirm anything about the birth, many of her celebrity friends have taken to Twitter to congratulate the couple.

For example, Radio 1 DJ Edith Bowman tweeted; “MASSIVE congrats to MrsLRCooper and family on the arrival of their little girl. So much happiness and love going their way. Xxx.”

Edith is just one of many celebrities sending their congrats to the pair. Not surprising really considering Lily has been wanting a child for quite a while now. Lily lost her baby six months into her pregnancy last year and in 2008 when she was with Chemical Brothers frontman Ed Simons.It makes me happy to know that she finally has her wish.

I shall update this post with details once a statement has been made. So happy for them!
