Jennifer Lawrence says she spit out a magnetic nose ring in front of Leonardo DiCaprio on the set of “Don’t Look Up.”
“Many, many times I accidentally inhaled said magnet and had to spit it out,” she said.
The actress underwent a transformation for her role, sporting a wig and double nose rings.
Jennifer Lawrence revealed she had to spit out a fake nose ring in front of Leonardo DiCaprio while filming “Don’t Look Up.”
Lawrence, who donned an auburn wig and double nose rings for her role in the film, said in an interview with Vanity Fair that one of the fake piercings was repeatedly an issue.
“The nose rings… one just kind of hangs in; one is a magnet,” she told Vanity Fair. “And many, many times I accidentally inhaled said magnet and had to spit it out in front of Leonardo DiCaprio.”
Lawrence plays an astronomer who is attempting to warn the planet of impending doom in the film, which will hit select theaters on December 10 and stream on Netflix on December 24.
Along with Lawrence and DiCaprio, the film features a number of other stars, including Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, and Ariana Grande.
Earlier this year, Lawrence was reportedly injured while filming “Don’t Look Up” after a controlled explosion on set caused debris to fly everywhere.
According to a report in the Boston Globe, a trash can crashed through a window during the explosion, causing debris fragments to hit Lawrence, who covered her face during the impact.
Filming was paused for a day after Lawrence’s injury (which reportedly occurred in or near her eye), but the star was expected to recover, a source told Boston’s ABC affiliate WCVB.
The movie’s director and writer, Adam McKay, is known for directing Will Ferrell comedy movies, including “Anchorman,” “Step Brothers,” and “Talladega Nights.” McKay previously told Insider’s Jason Guerrasio that “Don’t Look Up” is a comedy that follows two astronomers who try to warn the world that a giant meteorite will destroy Earth in six months.
