jennifer lawrence hunger games catching fire action star record

Jennifer Lawrence may not be having the best week, but at least she got this one piece of brilliant news.

According to the 2015 edition of the Guinness World Records almanac, J.Law's Hunger Games character Katniss Everdeen is officially the Highest Grossing Action Movie Heroine of all time!

That means she beat Angelina Jolie's Lara Croft, Kate Beckinsale's Selene from Underworld, and Milla Jovovich's Alice from Resident Evil.

The first two Hunger Games films did have a combined worldwide gross of over $1.5 BILLION, so we guess it's not exactly a surprise.

And just think, there are two more movies left! She's going to be unbeatable!

Not a bad little feather in the Mockingjay's cap!

Whoa!

We knew James Franco was shaving his head for his new movie but this is a whole other level!

The Spring Breakers star hit the Venice Film Festival on Friday where he unveiled his brand new head tattoo!

Is that thing REAL??

Well, yes and no. The character James is playing in the upcoming adaptation of the novel Zeroville has a very prominent tattoo of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. (The REAL Liz Taylor, not Lindsay Lohan's version. Sorry girl!)

Since it needs to be there the whole time, James is going to be sporting that amazing head ink for the next few weeks.

Ah-MAZING.
