Actress Jennifer Lawrence, who plays a ballerina-turned-assassin in the upcoming thriller “Red Sparrow,” who endures a “sadistic” training school in order to learn how to kill people. But, this is not the scariest part, the actress has to appear completely naked in front of a classroom.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight the actress said, “There’s one particular scene in the movie where your nightmare comes true from grade school, where you’re standing naked in front of a classroom full of people.” She added, “So that became a reality, but it actually wasn’t that bad.”
In fact, shooting the intense scenes on the demand of the script became a little easy for the actress.
Lawrence told ET, “Everybody made me feel so comfortable that I probably at a certain point started making everybody else uncomfortable.” She went on to say, “Because I’d be like, ‘I don’t want the robe. I’m hot. I’m eating.’ Everybody’s like, ‘She needs to cover up.’”
In addition, when Lawrence had to film her very first sex scene with actor Chris Pratt for their 2016 movie Passengers, the actress got “really, really drunk” before shooting.
In a roundtable discussion with The Hollywood Reporter back in 2017, Lawrence said, “Then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done? I don’t know.’ And he was married. And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach.”
The actress said, “And I knew it was my job, but I couldn’t tell my stomach that. So I called my mom, and I was like, ‘Will you just tell me it’s OK?’ It was just very vulnerable.” She added, “And you don’t know what’s too much. You want to do it real, you want everything to be real, but then. … That was the most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”
