Willow Shields has a confession to make. The Dancing With the Stars contestant known for her role as Prim Everdeen, sister to Jennifer Lawrence's character Katniss in The Hunger Games movies, is coming clean. "I'm an alien," she told us backstage.

"What? Sorry, I zoned out for a second there," her partner Mark Ballas said.

Um, us too. What did she say?

"I just said I'm an alien," she replied. "Oh, you are an alien," Mark said. "I am," Willow concurred.


Willow, who scored a 34 for her Salsa with Mark and a 39 for her team dance, was referring to her "alien" extra body parts: ribs.

"I have two…I guess they're very small and fragile so they get bruised easier when we're doing lifts and stuff, so sometimes it bothers me," she told E! News. "But other than that I kind of ignore it ."

The couple said goodbye to fellow contestant Patti LaBelle last night and it was a bittersweet goodbye. "Patti is my favorite person ever," Willow gushed.

Find out what else she had to say about the legendary singer and how this rib discovery came about in the video interview above.

Dancing With the Stars airs Mondays, 8 p.m. on ABC.
