Jennifer Lawrence dislodged boulder on Hunger Games set with her butt, almost killed crew member
And she might've put a curse on Hawaii at the same time, as she explains to Graham Norton
While Katniss Everdeen is an expert marksmen with a bow, Jennifer Lawrence can apparently do some serious damage with her butt.
On this week’s episode of The Graham Norton Show, Jamie Oliver discussed an incident involving backlash for his using chorizo in paella, which prompted Norton to bring up Lawrence’s Hawaiian mishap. “How do you know about this?” said Lawrence in shock.
While filming the second installment in the Hunger Games franchise, Catching Fire, the actress and her costars were warned to not disturb sacred stones on the coast of the water. “There were sacred rocks and you’re not supposed to sit on them because you’re not supposed to expose your genitalia to them,” she said. Since the actress was in a wet suit most of the shoot, she felt it was okay to use the rocks as a means to scratch a pesky itch on her bottom, or in her words, “They were so good for butt itching!”
All in good fun, until someone (almost) gets hurt, though. “One rock that I was butt-scratching on ended up coming loose, and it was a giant boulder and it rolled down this mountain and it almost killed our sound guy.” Lawrence can laugh about the terror of her mistake now, but the people of Hawaii saw the incident saw as a sign. “It was this huge dramatic deal and all the Hawaiians were like, ‘It’s the curse!’ and I’m over in the corner going, ‘I’m your curse. I wedged it loose with my ass’.”
