Bow Down to JLaw
For the second year in a row, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has been crowned the highest paid actress in the world, according to Forbes. The 26-year old A-lister actually raked in more money in 2015, but still managed to outrank number two slotholder Melissa McCarthy by $13 million. Lawrence owes her hefty $46 million income before taxes to time spent shooting arrows as Katniss Everdeen, and the check earned from this year's Passengers, opposite Chris Pratt. So, if you're ever lucky enough to encounter the Kentucky native at a local bar, just let her know that drinks are on her.

Halle Did It Again
Maxim favorite Halle Berry jumps on the Britney Spears bandwagon with a dramatic reading of the pop star's throwback track, "Oops, I Did It Again." Watch the actress recite the lyrics in a seductively comical fashion for W Magazine above.

Suicide Squad's Extras
Audiences weren't too pleased that much of the promotional footage (including multiple Jared Leto scenes) used for Suicide Squad was left on the cutting room floor. While there's a chance we may get a glimpse during its DVD release, listen to the cast sound off above to MTV International about their favorite scenes that never made it to screen.
