Jennifer Lawrence said she's got one big fear about sex

Jennifer Lawrence said she's got one big fear about sex

The actor might play brave and bold characters, but she isn't as courageous as them in the bedroom

Although Jennifer Lawrence was brave, bold and an absolute boss in The Hunger Games as Katniss Everdeen, she isn't as courageous in the bedroom.

The actor, 33, revealed she has one major fear about sex that gives her stage fright when she's between the sheets.

She isn't shy about sharing her hesitation regarding a bit of hanky-panky though, having previously confessed she had to get 'really, really drunk' to shoot her first ever sex scene with Chris Pratt for the sci-fi movie Passengers in 2016.

Lawrence said she puts on a front as a Big Time Charlie with countless notches on her bedpost, but in actually fact, she's a bit of a prude who reckons 'd**k is dangerous'. She's not wrong.

The Hollywood star got hitched to art gallery director Cooke Maroney in 2019, who she described as her 'best friend' and 'favourite person on the planet' who she wanted to be 'legally bound to forever'.

The couple went on to welcome their son Cy into the world in February last year, but Lawrence admitted she wasn't much of a fan of the baby-making process before she got married.

Jennifer Lawrence admitted there is something that holds her back in the bedroom.

While promoting her film Red Sparrow in 2018, she told Howard Stern's radio show: "I always talk like I want d**k, but the truth is when I look back at my sexual past it was always with boyfriends. I talk like I like it, but I don’t really do it."

When she would start getting down to business, the Don't Look Up star just couldn't get her mind off one of her biggest fears, which kind of hijacked the hot and heaviness of the moment.

Lawrence said: "I am mostly also a germaphobe. I have made it this far without an STI."

"D**k is dangerous," she continued: "If I was at the point where I could get an STI, doctors have already been involved. "That is how much of a germaphobe I am."

The safe sex champion seems to have overcome her fear in the five years that have passed since she shared her secret worry with the world after wedding Maroney and becoming a mother for the first time.

Baby snot, sick and dirty nappies are surely a germaphobes worst nightmare, but maybe it's worked as a kind of exposure therapy for Lawrence.

This year, the mum also filmed her first fully starkers scene alongside Andrew Feldman in the comedy No Hard Feelings and said she thought it was a doddle.

She admitted 'everyone in [her] life and [her] team' questioned whether or not she was 'sure' about filming the scene in the first place, but she had no hesitations about it.

However, Lawrence told Variety: "I didn't even have a second thought. It was so hilarious to me."

The scene required 'a lot of rehearsal' according to Lawrence and took the crew a day to shoot as well as being one of the last days of filming for No Hard Feelings.
