Lawrence, Hutcherson kissing scenes called 'gross' as 'Catching Fire' trailer debuts

A new "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" trailer, released on Sunday, shows Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen) locking lips with co-star Liam Hemsworth (Gale Hawthorne). At the same time, though, Lawrence and co-star Josh Hutcherson discussed their kissing scenes during "Catching Fire," calling them "gross."

Hutcherson and Lawrence's kissing scenes weren't gross because either is a poor kisser -- at least, we don't know that. Instead, she was ill during the shoot, and was all snotted up.

During a panel discussion at Comic-Con in San Diego, California over the weekend, when a fan asked about their kissing scenes in the second film, they both admitted some of the takes were far from hot.

Lawrence said,
Oh my God, we should have brought the clip with the snot ... I’ll put it on YouTube or something, you gotta see it… there’s all this snot coming out of my nose, and when I go to kiss Josh, it connects with his mouth. So, yes, it’ll be very hot.
Hutcherson, though, didn't seem to mind the snot, saying
There was a lot of slobber.
Meanwhile, in the trailer (embedded), Lawrence has a sexy scene including a kiss with Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne.

Gale, of course, is in love with Katniss in the novels.

In the two-and-a-half minute long trailer, Lawrence appears alongside other returning costars Josh Hutcherson (Peeta Mellark), Elizabeth Banks (Effie Trinket), Woody Harrelson (Haymitch Abernathy) and Lenny Kravitz (Cinna).

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" releases to theaters on Nov. 22, 2013.
