Jennifer Lawrence agreed to first fully nude scene in new film 'No Hard Feelings'
| Last updated
Jennifer Lawrence's new movie No Hard Feelings sees her bare all on the big screen after agreeing to take part in her first fully-nude scene.
There are no cleverly-placed plants or furniture to contend with here, either. We're talking full-frontal, relatively close-up nudity, with Lawrence at one with nature as she goes skinny dipping before emerging on to a beach.
The Hunger Games star isn't entirely new to on-screen nudity after she previously stripped off for the 2018 film Red Sparrow, but her positioning in that movie meant much of her body was still hidden from view.
Not this time, though.
No Hard Feelings sees Lawrence takes on the role of a bartender and Uber driver who is struggling to keep up with the payments on her mum's house.
When she suddenly finds herself without a car, her 32-year-old character responds to an advert from some desperate parents looking for someone to 'date' their 19-year-old son.
I put 'date' in quotes, because we're talking about a lot more than dinner and a movie.
Lawrence's character gets up to some raunchy behaviour throughout the movie as she desperately attempts to help the teen gain some experience, with their skinny dipping venture being just one of the things they get up to.
Speaking about her decision to take on the scene, Lawrence told Variety: “Everyone in my life and my team is doing the right thing and going, ‘Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?’ I didn’t even have a second thought. It was hilarious to me.”
Lawrence underwent 'a lot of rehearsal' for the scene, and her co-star, 21-year-old Andrew Barth Feldman, has insisted that 'nothing ever felt weird' between the pair.
He explained: “Every situation that these characters end up in, you’re laughing your butt off. We became so close instantly that nothing ever felt weird or unsafe. It was entirely professional.”
The characters' behaviour in the film did lead Lawrence to question Feldman's comment, as she asked: “Even when I put my T-shirt over your head and motor-boated you? You felt safe?”
Feldman stuck to his guns, though, responding: “I felt it was an exclusively sterile and professional environment.”
The comfortable relationship between the two actors was helped by their immediate chemistry on the set, with Feldman explaining: "On day one, we were telling each other our deepest darkest secrets and it only got deeper from there."
No Hard Feelings is out now in cinemas.
