Jennifer Lawrence injures her eye in on-set explosion
Boston, Massachusetts - Actor Jennifer Lawrence injured her eye on the set of her new flick Don't Look Up. According to her management, an artificial explosion probably went wrong.
According to TMZ, a stunt in the final stages of the comedy-drama went wrong.
In a Boston restaurant, window panes were to be "detonated" during the course of filming on Friday.
This explosion sent glass shards into the actor's eye. Shooting was canceled when bleeding on her eyelid could not be stopped, the report continues.
According to an insider, the injury is only half as bad as it sounds, but an official confirmation on the part of doctors or the actor's managers is still pending.
In Don't Look Up, Lawrence (30) plays an astronomer named Kate. Together with her colleague Randall, played by Leonardo DiCaprio (46), she wants to warn humanity about an asteroid approaching Earth.
The asteroid is supposed to wipe out life on Earth within half a year.
The blockbuster, which also stars Hollywood icon Meryl Streep (71), is finally set to hit Netflix this year after several coronavirus-related postponements.
However, an exact start date is still up in the air. Lawrence's fans will be hoping for a quick recovery so that the release won't be pushed back even farther.
Jennifer Lawrence has already won three Golden Globes in her career and an Oscar in 2013 for her leading role in Silver Linings.
