Passengers: Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt laugh about space stunts

Passengers stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence as two people aboard a spaceship who awaken from suspended animation too early into their trip towards a distant colony planet. As you’d expect from that description, the film required the duo to strap in for some intergalactic stunts.

During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the duo joked about the heavy space suits and harnesses — which Lawrence admitted she wasn’t too keen on — they had to wear while shooting the Morten Tyldum-directed project.

“There was about a week when I was working solo and I remember hanging in this harness with this space suit that was really heavy — it was incredibly uncomfortable — and I just remember saying, ‘You guys better get this together because Jen is not gonna do this,’” Pratt said.

“I put it on for one second and was like, ‘Hell, no,’” Lawrence laughed, adding, “I had to ultimately do it, I just complained a lot.”
