Jennifer Lawrence is hurt in the eye by a flying part of the glass after a stunt went wrong on the set of her debut film


Jennifer Lawrence was left injured after being hit in the eye with a shard of glass when a stunt went wrong on the set of her latest film.Jennifer Lawrence has suffered an injury on the set of “Don’t Look Up”, her new Netflix movie.

The Oscar-winning actress was busy shooting “Don’t Look Up” when glass exploded on the set and struck her in the face.

The Oscar-winning star, who is earning a reported £10 million to star opposite Leonardo DiCaprio in the sci-fi drama Don’t Look Up, was said to be ‘shaken but OK’ after the incident in Boston.

The accident happened as the 30-year-old was filming a riot scene where a rubbish bin was thrown through a window next to where she was sitting. 

A source told the New York Post newspaper's Page Six column: "An explosion was set up for a stunt in which glass shatters.

"It was a stunt in which the glass was supposed to shatter - but it injured her."

Jennifer, 30, suffered some injuries and the glass came perilously close to hitting her in the eye.

A source said: ‘It was a routine stunt and everything seemed fine until the window shattered and she screamed and fell to the floor.

‘The glass hit her above the eye but there were concerns tiny fragments might have gone in the eye so she was taken to hospital. 

There doesn’t appear to be any long-term damage.’

The movie, already delayed by Covid, has now been put on hold while the actress recovers.

Jennifer Lawrence has thanked locals in Louisville, Kentucky for reaching out to her and her family following a blaze that destroyed their Camp Hi Ho resort last week.

But despite being shaken-up by the incident, she's expected to be fine and filming is set to resume.

The acclaimed actress stars alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in the Netflix movie, and the political satire is expected to be released later this year.

Jennifer is currently one of the best-paid actresses in the movie business, but she previously insisted she's not been changed by fame.

She said: "I’m still the same person that I’ve always been, but it does make it hard sometimes to adjust to being followed around and also to deal with this image that people have of you.

"That’s when you realise how important it is to have really good friends and keep them close to you. It has made me grow up and I’m trying to be a good example for all the people who believe in me and have supported me while I’ve been building my career."

Despite the intense pressure she faces, Jennifer remains determined to speak her mind in public.

She explained: "I like to be spontaneous and it’s hard for me to hold back how I feel or what I think about certain things.

"Sometimes, though, you will say something and then it will be turned against you, which is not fun. But I feel very lucky to be in this position and have the kind of opportunities I have."
