Landing a starring role in the upcoming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a real sweet gig, and in the case of , who plays Finnick Odair in the sequel, this was literally the case.

Talking about a scene early in the movie where he tries to seduce Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) with a couple of sugar cubes, Claflin revealed that he had to put his sweet tooth to the test:

We did that scene for a whole day. When we first started shooting, I was actually eating two sugar cubes. There were two per take. Then I toned it down a bit, like, 'You know what, is this necessary?' There were a lot of sugar cubes consumed. I remember they only had one box, and we nearly got to the end of the box. When we were done, I immediately brushed my teeth.

I would happily munch on sugar cubes all day long if it meant I got to hang out with JLaw. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it.
