Hollywood Crush has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Lenny Kravitz Jennifer LawrenceThe Reaping isn't too far off now, and as if the powers at Lionsgate could sense our collective mouths watering, they've wheeled out an assortment of tasty amuse-bouches for us to nibble on. (Yes, we watch "Top Chef.") So without further ado, let's rundown the "Hunger Games" headlines of the day:

Cinnabonding
No, that's not a tear. A droplet of 7-Up flew into my eye, okay?

Accompanying their latest interview with the rock god, Rolling Stone has debuted a brand-new image of Lenny Kravitz's Cinna and Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss sharing a tender moment, presumably moments before the heroine is sucked up via tubing into the Arena.

“He’s very streamlined, he’s very quiet,” Lenny told the magazine of his stylist alter ego. “He knows what he’s doing. He’s confident. He’s got a big heart. I just liked the way he moved—very smooth.”

Lily Collins Seventeen magazineOne month, two magazine covers. You know you've arrived when you're pulling double duty on the newsstand. Hours after Vanity Fair's starlet-spangled Hollywood issue hit our desks, we found ourselves face-to-face with "Mirror Mirror" star Lily Collins once again, this time on the cover of Seventeen magazine, where she's looking all kinds of adorable in a mini chartreuse frock. Inside the issue, the 22-year-old talks about growing up in the spotlight and paving her own path.

Lily's "Snow White" remake hits theaters March 30, and director Tarsem Singh hasn't been shy about what won Lily the role—namely, her eyebrows! "I just saw her eyebrows and I said, 'That's Snow White,'" he joked in an interview. But Lily hasn't always been comfortable with her prominent brow. “It used to bother me—having bigger, fuller brows. I even plucked them once so I’d fit in, but I hated them and couldn’t wait for them to grow back," she told the mag. "Now I embrace them. I’ve realized the quirky things that make you different are what make you beautiful.”

Ashley GreeneIf you've been missing Ashley Greene since the latest Cullen family drama stopped playing in theaters, here's a chance to catch up with the actress while you wait for "Breaking Dawn" on DVD: She's gracing the cover of Lucky magazine's March issue and sharing a little insight on where she'll land next once the "Twilight" train stops running for good.

After working for years to get a big break, landing the role of Alice Cullen catapulted Ashley from relative obscurity to the Hollywood big leagues—a shift that she's very aware of when she talks about how her career aspirations have changed.

Vanity FairVanity Fair's 2012 Hollywood issue is here, and there's just one word to sum it up: HOLYOMGLAMOUR. (Okay, so that's not technically a word. But an occasion like this needs a wholly original portmanteau, mmmkay?) The cover features a full dozen of our favorite young leading ladies, who look like they're in attendance at a deco-themed slumber party we'd kill for an invitation to—all 12 of them channeling 1930s boudoir bombshells in Old Hollywood pincurls, deep red lipstick and silk charmeuse gowns.

But the cover isn't just eye candy; it's a veritable buffet of the poised and prolific actresses who we'll be seeing in the movies and on the awards circuit for the next decade or so. We've got...

Nina DobrevNina Dobrev might be best known right now for her small-screen role on "The Vampire Diaries," but don't count on her staying exclusively in Mystic Falls: The actress has been clocking increasingly cool roles in feature films, and her next appearance—in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"—is likely to catapult her straight to leading-lady status on the big screen. (After all, she's part of our New Class for a reason!) And as the cover girl for February's issue of Nylon, Nina reveals in an interview that she's got serious career aspirations.

"I want to become a different person, and that’s what working in film allows," she explained. "I want to be a punk or a sweetheart or a drug addict! There are so many things to explore... Sometimes they’ll be like, ‘She’s not plain enough.’ Or ‘She’s not edgy enough.' That frustrates me. I feel like a blank canvas, and I wish people would be a little more open-minded."

Daniel RadcliffeDaniel Radcliffe might be a self-professed romantic, but that doesn't mean he's an expert at dating. In fact, in his own words, he's "crap at it"!

The "Harry Potter" star opened up to Parade magazine about life, love and girlfriend Rosie Coker. Turns out that his attempts at seduction were as inexperienced as his onscreen persona Harry Potter's.

"With Rosie, I didn’t know what was appropriate, like on which date you’re supposed to try and kiss her," Dan admitted. "At the end of the second date I pulled a move out of the Bela Lugosi Book of Woo—I went to kiss Rosie and at the last minute lost my nerve and ended up kissing her neck, which is such a weirdly intimate place to kiss somebody on a second date."

It's no secret that Demi Lovato is back on the Hollywood scene after dropping off the map briefly in late 2010; first there was her hard-to-miss appearance in that dress at the Latin Grammy Awards, and now she's the cover girl for February's Seventeen! But while Demi is clearly happy, healthy and back on track after her time in rehab, she's not afraid of some Real Talk about the rough patch she went through to get here—and in her feature interview, she opens up about just how bad things got and which famous ladies helped her on her way to getting well.

When asked about the problems she faced a year ago, Demi is blunt: "I’m not gonna lie. I was self-medicating. I was doing things like drinking and using [drugs], like a lot of teens do to numb their pain."

And between her substance abuse and confessed struggle with an eating disorder, there's no doubt that she had a lot of work to do before she could fully heal—but now, she says, she's beaten her demons.

Rachel McAdamsDo you need a nice, sunny celeb feature to drag you out of the early winter doldrums? Well, look who's flirting with you from the pages of February's Glamour: It's Rachel McAdams! Our longtime ladycrush is on the cover of the mag next month, totally bringing the cute in a saucy, '70s-inspired photoshoot (including a provocative pic involving pasta. Yow!). And inside, she happily chats with her interviewer about her approach to acting, her off-screen relationship and how much she loves her home in Toronto.

Right out of the gate, we get a perfect reminder of just why everyone loves Rachel so much: She can always be counted on for a totally authentic performance that really gets to the heart of the person she's playing—even when that means giving her on-set stylist a reality check.

If you only know Elizabeth Banks as the soon-to-be portrayer of Effie Trinket in "The Hunger Games," here's your chance to see how little the real-life Elizabeth resembles the social-climbing, appearance-obsessed Capitol dame she'll be playing on-screen. The actress is on the cover of Lucky this February and posed for a photoshoot wearing a series of classic, classy ensembles that are a far cry from the hot pink, puff-shouldered wild card of a suit that we briefly saw during the "Hunger Games" trailer. (Boo! Boring! Bring back the suit!)

Unfortunately, Elizabeth only talks briefly about her role in our most-anticipated film of 2012. But what she does have to say about her transformation into Effie is illuminating; her character's distinctive look is, she said, "based on my heroes, Rosalind Russell in 'Auntie Mame' and Katharine Hepburn in 'The Philadelphia Story.'"

...OMG, you guys, it totally is! She even does the Katharine Hepburn voice! We knew we recognized that posh, brassy accent from somewhere.

Elle FanningIt's a well-known law of the universe that, at any given time, there must be a young actress from the Fanning family available to knock our socks off in big Hollywood movies and look fantastic in teen fashion mags—and now that Dakota is coming up on legal adulthood, it's time for sister Elle Fanning to take a place in the spotlight. And look, here she is! Looking lovely on the cover of February's Teen Vogue!

Elle is currently starring in the holiday feel-good film "We Bought a Zoo," and in her interview, she talks about her approach to acting, what it's like to follow in her big sister's footsteps and how she handles suddenly starring alongside Hollywood's A-list in feature films.
