JLaw's spongy screen kiss

Jennifer Lawrence has described her kiss with co-star Liam Hemsworth as “scratchy”.

The 23-year-old actress stars alongside Josh in new movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. In the popular adventure franchise Jennifer’s character Katniss Everdeen is caught in a love triangle with Josh’s character Peeta Mellark and Gale Hawthorne, played by Liam Hemsworth.

When asked to compare their kissing techniques in Catching Fire, she gave some unusual feedback.

"I was in a former interview, I was asked to give one-word descriptions of kissing each of them, and I think that's the only way I'm going to answer from now on," Jennifer joked to MTV News.

Pointing at Josh, Jennifer said: "Spongy."

She then turned to Liam proclaiming, “Scratchy.”

When hunky Liam looked rather perturbed by Jennifer’s summary of his smooching skills, she did her best to reassure him it had been enjoyable.

"His lips were more, he puckered more. You're not a puckerer," she further explained. "Not that that's a bad thing."

Josh will no doubt be thrilled with Jennifer’s complimentary review of their kiss.

The 21-year-old recently revealed the Oscar-winning actress was the first person he locked lips with on the big screen.

"You're my first real big kiss in a movie,” he told her during an interview. "It was a little abrasive, if I'm being honest. A little shocking.”

Jennifer quickly recovered from Josh’s revelation to agree it got “very slobbery” on set.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is released worldwide this month.
