Jennifer Lawrence admitted it was 'really really hard' filming with Jonah Hill

Jennifer Lawrence admitted it was 'really really hard' filming with Jonah Hill

Things got a little sticky behind the scenes of Netflix's 'Don't Look Up'

When Netflix released Don't Look Up back in 2021, it was an instant hit.

The film stars Jennifer Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio as two astronomers who must warn the world of an approaching comet that could destroy Earth.

The Netflix original was lauded by film fans who loved both it's star-studded cast — Jonah Hill, Meryl Streep, Chris Evans and Timothée Chalamet also star — and poignant message about climate change.

But, it turns out things were a little sticky behind the scenes, with Lawrence saying it was 'really really hard' filming with Hill.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the 33-year-old opened up about the process of filming the dark comedy.

Lawrence, who plays astronomer Kate Dibiasky in the flick, explained Hill’s character, Jason Orlean, is ‘the worst’ and it was really hard to not ‘ruin’ every take when filming together.

She said: "It was really, really hard filming with Jonah, and just not ruining take after take, laughing. We one time dedicated an entire day to him just improv-ing insults at me.

"It was amazing."

Jennifer Lawrence plays an astronomer alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in 2021's 'Don't Look Up.'

Commenting on Hill's ability to improv, the Hunger Games star revealed he and 'Meryl were the only ones who should do that kind of improv.'

"I mean, he's just a comedic master. I mean we all did some [improv] just not as well as Jonah," she added.

One scene which didn't feature in the script shows Hill's character telling Lawrence and DiCaprio's to: "Sit tight and assess."

"The sit tight comes first then you've got to digest it, that's the assessment period," Hill says.

Lawrence reflects: "See? That wasn't in the script Jonah."

Lawrence called her co-star Jonah Hill a 'comedic master' and said she'd ruin takes by laughing at him.

Directed by Adam McKay, the official synopsis for the film reads: "Two astronomers go on a media tour to warn humankind of a planet-killing comet hurtling toward Earth.

"The response from a distracted world: Meh."

But, while filming Don't Look Up sounded like a barrel of laughs, J-Law reminded readers that its sentiment is a lot more serious.

When asked what the 'biggest thing' people take away from the movie should be, she replied: "To stop handling information the way that we do now, where there's like the truth and science and then politics, or you know, personal feelings involved.

"You know, we should all just be on the same page of, you know, taking care of our planet, and taking care of mankind.

"World peace would be my hope."
