I should have known ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’ premieres weren’t done! Here’s the star of the franchise, Jennifer Lawrence, at the ‘Mockingjay’ premiere in New York City. She showed a lot more skin, going back to a more risque look for what I’m assuming truly is the final premiere for this major franchise ;). Although ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’ is the first franchise that Jennifer has carried (‘X-Men’ is more of an ensemble film), she had another filmmaking first on her sci-fi romance, ‘Passengers,’ with Chris Pratt: she did her first sex scene.
Jennifer talked about the experience in a roundtable discussion with other actresses. She said:
I had my first real sex scene a couple weeks ago [while shooting Passengers with Chris Pratt], and it was really bizarre. It was really weird.”
I hadn’t realized that Jennifer had never filmed a sex scene. I haven’t seen all of her movies, so I would have no way of knowing for sure, but this seems surprising. She has been focused more on the action-adventure films, so it makes sense.
Jennifer shared her strategy for preparing for the scene.
I got really, really drunk. But 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. 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. 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.”
I can see where she would feel vulnerable! Chris Pratt seems like a genuinely nice guy, so I bet he was supportive in terms of helping her deal with her nerves. I’m looking forward to seeing the trailer for ‘Passengers’: it actually sounds like an original Hollywood movie! For now, though, I’m all set to enjoy ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’!
