Jennifer Lawrence Demonstrates Her Foolproof Plan For Curing Hiccups

By Agent Bedhead | Pajiba Love | May 19, 2014 | Comments ()


Andy Samberg’s “reunion episode” of SNL could have been even weirder. Click through to see one of the skits that was cut. *shudder* (WG)

Hey, girl. Ryan Gosling is in Cannes to present his directorial debut, a love letter to Detroit, which may just make him “the Canadian Slim Shady” with great abs. His explanation of the film’s inception is almost heartbreaking. (Lainey)

This is one of the strangest celebrity couplings of the year. Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden? He’s supposedly a shy and retiring type, but he did date Paris Hilton back in the day. Oh god. (Dlisted)

The 2014 Nebula awards have been announced. In a very refreshing twist, all of the fiction winners are female. (TMS)

Jennifer Lawrence has officially started her publicity rounds for Mockingjay. In doing so, she wore a tummy baring Dior ensemble and managed to look adorable and twee at the same time. (Celebitchy)

JLaw also has a very impressive (and somewhat elaborate) cure for hiccups. You’ll need an assistant to pull this one off, but it works. (Uproxx)

Oh, and Jennifer danced with Liam Hemsworth in Cannes. This is officially the JLaw edition of Pajiba Love. (E!)

Blake Lively is still in Cannes & still doesn’t have a movie coming out anytime soon. But she’s still the star of this year’s festival. (GFY)

Godzilla performed so well that Godzilla 2 is in development. (Slashfilm)

What were the most popular names of 2013 in each state? There were a whole lot of Emmas and Liams across the board with a few variations. (MF)

Artist Dan Luvisi’s newest work will give you Disney nightmares. (Unreality)

Are these the 100 Best B-movies of all time? The Stuff was the sh*t. (Paste)

Huzzah for Malin who last week became the second Cannonballer to read and review 52 books this year! There are over 1,200 reviews so far this Read, and that means tons of affiliate links and ads to raise money for the American Cancer Society. So check out Malin’s review of Lost Lake by Sarah Addison Allen, and help raise a few pennies to fight cancer. Who knows, you might even spy Mrs. Julien. (Cannonball Read 6)

    Godzilla performed so well that Godzilla 2 is in development.

    Aren't we up to, like, Godzilla thirty-something by now?

  • BWeaves

    Ah B movies.

    I highly recommend Hammer Films' "The Vampire Lovers." It's one of Hammer's best films.

    1. The poster has NOTHING to do with the movie.
    2. The movie is a period piece based on the lesbian vampire novel "Camilla" (which predated the novel Dracula, so there).
    3. It stars Ingrid Pitt and her glorious breasts. I wanted to have breasts just like hers when I was growing up.
    4. You see them. There's a great naked romp around the bathtub scene. The other girl is pretty attractive, too.
    5. Peter Cushing plays the doctor and examines the vampire's victim by undoing her nighty, and putting his stethoscope UNDER her breast while she breathes heavily.
    6. The movie follows the novel very closely.
    7. Let me repeat, boobs. Good ones. Natural good ones.

    The best hiccup cure I have found is to take a glass of water, put a paper towel or napkin over the top, then drink the whole thing though it. Hasn't failed me yet, and every time I suggest it I get looked at like I'm crazy but then it works when they actually try it.

  • Nicole_OCTV

    Hiccups cure that works and only requires yourself:

    This gift of a cure was passed on to me by my best friend when we were kids and it totally works. I just used it last night as a matter of fact. I'd that 95% of the time, it works every time - sometimes you might have to do it twice.

    1. Get a glass of water.
    2. Hold it to your lips and take 6 very small sips in a row, swallowing between each one.
    3. Take one big gulp of water, and breath normally, controlling your diaphragm.
    4. Hiccups should be gone.

    Weren't women supposed to be destroying science fiction? I guess not.

  • emmalita

    We'll just have to keep trying.

  • emmalita

    Woot, Malin!

  • BWeaves

    Those are very old fashioned Grandma and Grandpa baby names. Except for Florida, Jayden? Is that a made up name?

    I guess the only way my name is ever going to make it to a top ten list is for me to get famous. Nobody has my name anywhere in the top 1000.

  • Mrs. Julien

    When we named Little J., there were spreadsheets, rules, and website cross-referencing to make sure that his name was not in the Top 50 for popularity. What I didn't realise, despite having an unusual first AND last name, is that common names have their benefits. His name gets mangled all the time. It's only 4 letters. You wouldn't think it was difficult:

    Me: His name is Ewan.
    Them: Ewing?
    Me: No, Ewan, like Ewan McGregor. The actor.
    Them: [blank look]
    Me: He played Obi Wan Kenobi.
    Them: [blank look]
    Me: It's a traditional Scottish name.
    Them: [blank look]

  • Try spelling Ewan the traditional way as Euan. That messes with people. Same with Iain. Or RuaidhrĂ­ (Rory).

  • Mrs. Julien

    We had that discussion and went with matching it to the version most people will be familiar with. Euan would have been a bridge too far.

  • Daffyd, Myfanwy, Ailish, Aoife, Aisling, etc.

    These are all people I know. In Australia or NZ.

  • Mrs. Julien

    I actually knew a Myfanwy. We dimissed Aisling and Siobhan as women's names because of pronunciation issues. Of course, we picked Sinead for a girl like that wouldn't have been a huge challenge.

  • BWeaves

    OK, I know Daffyd is pronounced similar to David.

    How are the others pronounced?

  • BWeaves

    I feel for him. I do computer tech support, and I automatically spell my name after saying it, every time I talk to someone.

    "Hi, my name is Berna. That's B as in boy, E R N A.

    My name isn't even weird sounding, at least I don't think so. But I get:

    No, Berna, with a B as in Boy.
    No, I'm not a country in Asia.
    No. I'm not a city in Switzerland.

    P.S. The maid at Trudy's house in Mad Men Sunday night was named Verna, and I jumped out of my chair. Then I realized it was a V, and I sat back down.

  • BlackRabbit

    See, I'd start getting silly at you:
    "Binghamton? Bumbershoot? Bratwurst?" And I do phone tech support, so I'm right there with you.

  • Mrs. Julien

    My best friend's entire life: "My name is Tal. T-A-L, Tal. No, it's not short for anything."

  • Nicole_OCTV

    My best friend's name is Kim. And she gets asked to repeat and/or spell it more than anyone else I know. It's totally bizarre.

  • logan

    It's just hard to explain things to stupid people.

  • Aaron Schulz

    Whats twee?

  • firedmyass

    Gosh... if only there were some quick, convenient online place to go ogle information.

  • BWeaves

    I thought that was HERE!

  • BWeaves

    Twee = sickening sweet, and not in a food way.

  • Miss Jane

    See, I thought it went right up to the line of sick/sweet but didn't cross over. As in part of the word for between.

    In other news: How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

  • Berry

    "Angels simply don't dance. It's one of the distinguishing characteristics that marks an angel. They may listen appreciatively to the Music of the Spheres, but they don't feel the urge to get down and boogie to it. So, none.

    At least, nearly none. Aziraphale had learned to gavotte in a discreet gentleman’s club in Portland Place, in the late 1880s, and while he had initially taken to it like a duck to merchant banking, after a while he had become quite good at it, and was quite put out when, some decades later, the gavotte went out of style for good. So providing the dance was a gavotte, and providing that he had a suitable partner (also able, for the sake of argument, both to gavotte, and to dance it on the head of a pin), the answer is a straight forward one."

    Things I did this morning, instead of my job: found that quote. Tried to resist clicking the links that came up in a google search for Aziraphale gavotte. Failed.

  • Lord Inferno

    Google tells me this is from Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. I have not read it. May have to check it out.

  • emmalita

    Terry Pratchett, Neil Gaiman, and Christopher Moore are required reading around here.

  • Berry

    If you want to fill your head with witty quotes for every occasion, it's highly recommended. And it's funny as hell. If the car warning haikus don't make you laugh, you're dead in some deep place inside you that can't be resurrected.

  • Lord Inferno


    A haiku about my love for haikus:

    Haikus, I love thee
    Less than large breasted women
    More than a crotch shot

  • Jezzer

    A word used to described Wes Anderson and his horrible, overrated, saccharine oeuvre.

  • Aaron Schulz

    I challenge you to a duel, pistols at dawn.

  • Bea Pants

    We're not friends anymore!

    A love letter to Detroit? That makes my heart sing. I know Detroit has a ton of problems but I've had so many wonderful times there. I love it.

  • AvaLehra

    I'm kind of sad that I've only seen 9 of the 100 B-movies.

  • emmalita

    New goals to set!

  • AvaLehra

    There's always room for improvement!

  • Mrs. Julien

    YAY, MALIN! Hail, Malin!

    Pajiba has given me a lot of things and my acolyte/master relationship with Malin is one of those things that I treasure most.

  • Malin

    OK, now I am literally blushing. I know I mainly lurk on the main site, but I do take pride in being one of the veterans of the Cannonball Read now. And the online friendships I've made since I started reading and blogging for the CBR have made my life so much richer.

  • logan

    On tomorrows JLaw Love learn about her favorite burger, her best french toast recipe and her fave sad movie!

  • kirivinokur

    Remember those Twihards? We're totally different from those deluded people. JLaw's so great I know we'll be such best friends because she wins the internet/she needs to be in everthing/I'll be in my bunk/THIS!

  • Muhnah_Muhnah

    Yay to more women writing Sci-Fi/Fantasy! Also, it's given me additions to my reading list. Summer is upon us (well...the UK version anyway) and there are parks to lounge in, wine to drink and therefore in need of books to read!
