Jennifer Lawrence is more comfortable doing nude scenes now
The actress confesses that it was a very vulnerable moment for her
Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about how she feels about filming nude scenes in films. She reportedly spoke about being naked in front of the camera for her upcoming film Red Sparrow.
The Academy Award winner and Hunger Games franchise star said that she actually feels a lot less awkward now than she did before, according to a report in Marie Claire. "I don’t have the same fear and insecurity in that one specific area that I used to. So you know I’m always gonna take on roles for the same reason, you know, the character speaks to me and the director and the story. But I’m no longer gonna let that be a factor in my decision making."
The 27-year-old confessed that it did put her in a delicate spot. "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," reported Entertainment IE.
The report also mentioned that she had to intoxicate herself before she could bring herself to do a sex scene. She said that she got "really really drunk" when it came to filming a sex scene in Passengers, where actor Chris Pratt starred along with her. Pratt and Anna Faris were still a happy matrimonial couple at the time.
Entertainment IE reported, "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 okay?”
She explained the awkwardness saying, "It was weird. And everything was done right; nobody did anything wrong. It’s just a bizarre experience."
But that was in the past. Now, she says she has gotten over it and is actually comfortable doing nude scenes. "Everybody made me feel so comfortable that I probably at a certain point started making everybody else uncomfortable," she explained in the report. She apparently didn't even want a robe. "I’d be like, I don’t want the robe. I’m hot. I’m eating. Everybody’s like, She needs to cover up."
