Jennifer Lawrence is said to be recovering after being hit in the face by flying glass in a nasty accident on the set of her new movie, south of Boston.
The actress is currently filming the Netflix film Don’t Look Up, an end-of-the-world comedy directed by Adam McKay of Vice and The Big Short.
According to reports from TMZ, Jennifer Lawrence was injured when a “controlled glass explosion” on the set went wrong, sending shards flying.
She was filming a scene with co-star Timothee Chalamet at around 1am when the incident occurred. The pair were seated in a restaurant, in which a window was meant to explode.
The explosion sent a shard of glass flying into Lawrence’s eye, and eyewitnesses say her eyelid was seen bleeding, and she held her face until paramedics arrived.
The injury fortunately does not seem to have been serious, but scheduled shooting for the next day was still shut down.
Don’t Look Up tells “the story of two low-level astronomers, who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth.”
Alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Timothee Chalamet, it stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Evans, Cate Blanchett, Meryl Streep, Ariana Grande and many other big names.
