Jennifer Lawrence’s nude scene in new film No Hard Feelings was ‘entirely professional'
| Last updated
Jennifer Lawrence and Andrew Feldman have opened up about what it was like filming the nude scene in No Hard Feelings.
Within the movie, there's one scene where Lawrence strips down completely naked on the beach.
With the role of intimacy coordinators gaining important and long-awaited recognition and actors' boundaries - particularly in scenes of a more vulnerable, nude or sexual nature - more widely spoken about, how did Lawrence and Feldman feel about working together on the nude scene?
The scene is Lawrence's first fully nude scene - the 32-year-old having shot partially in the nude for films such as Red Sparrow (2018).
She admitted 'everyone in [her] life and [her] team' questioned whether or not she was 'sure' about shooting the scene in the first place.
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 film as well as being one of the last days of filming for No Hard Feelings.
Thankfully, despite the nudity, it wasn't an awkward day to shoot and it didn't leave Feldman and Lawrence feeling like they were ending filming on a weird note.
"We became so close instantly, nothing ever felt weird or unsafe. It was entirely professional," Feldman explained.
He added: "To make me comfortable is to remove any ice between us immediately and break it right away and on day one we were telling each other our deepest darkest secrets and it only got deeper from there.
"And I think that vulnerability between us off-camera was something, I know that I was so craving from somebody I was working with at all. Let alone from somebody I was going to be so closely working with."
Addressing Lawrence, Feldman resolved: "So yeah, I felt so incredibly safe, sitting next to and in front of you."
Elsewhere in the interview, Lawrence joked: "Even when I put my T-shirt over your head and motor-boated you? You felt safe?"
However, Feldman pressed on noting it was a very 'professional environment'.
"There was nothing that was really off limits with us because we immediately knew each other on a deeper level I think," he added.
Lawrence chimed in: "We clicked."
No Hard Feelings came out in cinemas on 23 June.
