Jennifer Lawrence won’t do stunts
Jennifer Lawrence refused to do any stunts after completing work on ‘The Hunger Games’.
The 26-year-old actress had had enough of getting physical on screen following the four-movie dystopian saga, so when it came to her latest movie ‘Passengers’, she left the bulk of the action to her co-star Chris Pratt.
She admitted: "As soon as I wrapped ‘Hunger Games’ I was done with stunts.
"I didn’t want to do any more, I didn’t like it. I complained so much they said, ‘So we guess it will be mainly Chris doing all the action.’ "
But Jennifer admitted Chris was one of her luckier co-stars as while filming ‘Passengers’ – in which the pair play two people who wake 90 years too soon from an induced hibernation on board a spaceship bound for a new planet – as she took measures to ensure her breath was fresh when they had kissing scenes, something she doesn’t always do.
She told talk show host Graham Norton: "When I had to kiss Josh (Hutcherson) and Liam (Hemsworth) in ‘The Hunger Games’ I was like, ‘Who cares?’ and I’d eat mustard and tuna.
"And then I did ‘American Hustle’ with Christian Bale and I was like, ‘Oh damn’, and I was really clean and ate lots and lots of mints.
"With Pratt I definitely ate mints!"
Jennifer recently spoke of how much she enjoyed working on ‘Passengers’ alongside "hard-working" Chris, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne and Andy Garcia.
She said: "Chris Pratt is the hardest-working person I’ve ever met in my life.
"It was a beautiful experience, because we all were so passionate about it."
