Jennifer Lawrence Says That Working With Leonardo DiCaprio Was "Hell"

You'd think a day on a movie set with Leonardo DiCaprio and Timothée Chalamet would be pretty dreamy for any actor, but not so for Jennifer Lawrence - who recently described her day on set with the two acclaimed actors as 'hell'.

Speaking in a hilarious interview with Stephen Colbert on his eponymous TV show of the same name, the 31-year-old Hunger Games star said that time on the set of upcoming Netflix film Don't Look Up with the pair was incredibly annoying.

"It was the most annoying day in my life," Lawrence told Colbert on Monday (6 December).

She was speaking about a particular day where she, DiCaprio and Chalamet were filming in a car together: "They drove me crazy that day."

"I don't know what it was," the mom-to-be continued, "Timothée was just excited to be out of the house [after the pandemic lockdown]. I think it was, like, his first scene.

And reportedly, DiCaprio had picked the song that was playing in the car and was just, like, 'You know, this song was about, you know, blah, blah, blah.' "

Lawrence added: "I just remember being in absolute misery that day. It was hell."

Don't Look Up will be available on Netflix from 24 December and comes from director Adam McKay, who is also responsible for The Big Short, Vice, Step Brothers and the Anchorman movies.

It's got a star-studded cast too, with Jonah Hill, Rob Morgan, Mark Rylance, Tyler Perry, Ron Perlman, Ariana Grande, Scott Mescudi, Himesh Patel, Melanie Lynskey, Michael Chiklis, Tomer Sisley, Cate Blanchett and Meryl Streep all joining Lawrence, DiCaprio and Chalamet.

The movie tells the story of a pair of astronomers who embark on a mission to warn the world about an approaching comet that threatens to destroy the planet.

The two main characters are played by DiCaprio and Lawrence, with Streep featuring as the President of the United States.

McKay gave an interview to Entertainment Weekly earlier this year outlining how he managed to get Lawrence to sign on the dotted line.

He said: "I've known Jennifer for a good while now. One of the first meetings she ever took in Los Angeles was with me.

"She is a massive fan of Step Brothers . I've been a giant fan [of hers] since she first came on the scene and she just straight up makes me laugh. So I wrote this role for her.

"She was the first actor in."

DiCaprio was added to the cast during the pandemic, with McKay continuing: "Leo was interested and then the pandemic hit.

"So we used a lot of the time during the pandemic to just go through the script, talk about his character. He's really smart, he really knows movies, he knows movie history, he understands characters, and it was very enjoyable."

Don't Look Up drops on Netflix on Christmas Eve, with a limited cinematic release on December 10.
