Jennifer Lawrence had a hilarious moment when she filmed a steamy nude scene in this film
Jennifer Lawrence’s performance in No Hard Feelings has left Netflix viewers in awe, with the movie climbing the charts on the platform following its streaming debut this past weekend. In the R-rated comedy, Lawrence plays the character named Maddie, who’s paid to date and seduce Percy, a wealthy couple’s introverted and awkward 19-year-old son.
One of the most talked about moments of the movie is the actress’ full frontal nudity scene. However, this isn’t the first time the Oscar-winning actress has bared it all for the big screen. Her first nude scene came in Red Sparrow, which led to the actress going berserk on the set.
Why Did Jennifer Lawrence Get Worried Before Going Topless in Red Sparrow
Jennifer Lawrence led the 2018 spy thriller Red Sparrow as Dominika Egorova, a former ballerina, who’s recruited to Sparrow School, a Russian intelligence service where she is taught to use her body as a weapon. Dominka targets a CIA agent, who tries to convince her that she can only trust him.
As per the role’s demands, Lawrence decided to strip down on camera for the first time in her career despite previously insisting she wouldn’t do such scenes in a movie. Explaining her change of mind on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 33-year-old quipped, ‘I think I finally just got hot.’
She then gave a serious answer, insisting the script and the character of Dominika were so amazing that she didn’t want to miss out on it because of her “weird insecurities.”
On the day of the shooting, Lawrence’s biggest concern was how her n-pples would look after the crew made the set too warm. The crew, which worked with her for Hunger Games, tried to make things comfortable for her by setting up heaters in the freezing Hungarian winter. But the set got so warm and toasty that she all of a sudden started screaming, “What are you doing with this heat! My n-pples are going to be huge!”
Fortunately, the chaotic nature of the set didn’t reflect on the big screen and Lawrence seemed absolutely beautiful in the steamy sequence. The movie also performed pretty well at the box office, grossing $151.6 million against a budget of $69 million.
How Jennifer Lawrence Reacted to Her NSFW Fight Scene in No Hard Feelings
Lawrence certainly enjoyed how things turned out in Red Sparrow because when No Hard Feelings‘ script asked Maddie to go fully naked on a beach, the actress took little time to give her nod for the scene.
In her attempts to bring Percy (Andrew Barth Feldman) out of his shell, the broke 32-year-old Uber driver takes him for skinny-dipping where they are interrupted by some teens who steal their clothes. The whole sequence brilliantly showed both the seductive and silly side of Maddie, and her fighting skills underlined that the actress didn’t forget her training from Red Sparrow.
“Everyone in my life and my team is doing the right thing and going, ‘Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?’” Lawrence told Variety. “I didn’t even have a second thought. It was hilarious to me.”
The Passengers actress revealed the scene took a lot of rehearsal and shooting lasted a whole day.
