Far from sitting behind a desk all day, being an actor like Jennifer Lawrence means that no two days are the same.
One day you're fighting for your survival in the Hunger Games, the next you're spending the entire day naked while cameras and crew members watch on to capture a scene for the raunchy comedy No Hard Feelings, which is now on Netflix.
Co-starring Andrew Barth Feldman, No Hard Feelings tells the story of an introverted 19-year-old whose parents are desperate to have him to lose his virginity before he goes off to college.
Enter Jennifer Lawrence's character, Maddie, who is on the brink of losing her home and is in desperate need of some cash.
Maddie desperately tries to bring Feldman's character Percy out of his shell in exchange for payment from his parents, and through her character's efforts, Lawrence found herself spending an entire day completely naked.
Recalling the decision to bare all to the camera, Lawrence told Variety: "Everyone in my life and my team is doing the right thing and going, ‘Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?’ I didn’t even have a second thought. It was hilarious to me.”
There was no delicate mood lighting or tactful placing of palm trees to cover up the nudity in the scene; Lawrence went full-frontal, all while acting out a fight scene with another character in the film.
It's really a scene that is better watched than described, but while it only lasts a few minutes in the movie, it took about a day to shoot, Lawrence said.
Filming took place following a 'lot of rehearsal', and formed just one of the many awkward moments in the film.
Thankfully Lawrence and Feldman didn't find it so awkward in real life, though, as Feldman explained: “Every situation that these characters end up in, you’re laughing your butt off."
Addressing some of the close encounters between the characters, he added: “We became so close instantly that nothing ever felt weird or unsafe. It was entirely professional.”
“Even when I put my T-shirt over your head and motor-boated you? You felt safe?" Lawrence replied.
Luckily, Feldman was sure: “I felt it was an exclusively sterile and professional environment.”
No Hard Feelings isn't the kind of film you want to sit down and watch with your parents, but it's proved a hit with fans who have scored it an impressive 87 percent audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.
It arrived on Netflix this week, providing the perfect palette cleanser to any scary movies you might have lined up for spooky season.
