WTF? A Hunger Games Star Got Engaged Years Ago & You Never Knew
Jena Malone‘s engagement announcement was one of the better parts of 2016
considering there weren’t many to choose from, but one of her fellow Hunger Games stars’ recent secret engagement reveal will go down as one of the most shocking of 2017 — we know it’s only February, but we already know that to be true.
According to Nicole Kidman, before she made the world a far more romantic place by linking up with now-husband Keith Urban, she was engaged to an actor from the Jennifer Lawrence-led movie franchise: Lenny Kravitz! That’s right, the 52-year-old rock star, who brought Katniss’ stylist, Cinna, to life on the big screen for two of the four THG flicks, was once tapped to marry the 49-year-old Oscar-winning actress. WHA-?!
In an interview with Net-A-Porter’s The Edit, while promoting her new project, Big Little Lies, Nicole let it slip that her original connection to BLL co-star Zoë Kravitz (X-Men: First Class, Divergent) was quite familial. “Well, I knew Zoë because I was engaged to her father,” she confessed. “It’s all in the family! I love Lenny; he’s a great guy.”
Nic publicly acknowledged that someone put a ring on it in between Tom Cruise and Keith Urban in a 2007 Q&A with Vanity Fair. “I get engaged, and I get married — that’s my thing,” she said. But this is the first time she revealed to whom she was betrothed. “It just wasn’t right,” she explained. “I wasn’t ready. We weren’t ready.”
Is it just us, or do you find yourself rooting for the murderer in a lot of YA movies:
The Hunger Games
Katniss Everdeen definitely had to drop a few bodies to get to her eventual destiny — Marvel being the first — and we were not mad about it. That guy killed Rue! You're just not a true Hunger Games fan if you didn't get just a little excited when she needed to take someone out as a necessary evil. A girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
