This is not Jennifer Lawrence’s first notable injury on a film set. The Hunger Games actor once told Vanity Fair that she became temporarily deaf in one ear after filming the franchise’s second film, Catching Fire

“I went deaf in one ear for months. . . . But that wasn’t actually physically challenging,” she said. “It was just ear challenging because I got all of these ear infections from the diving and the water and all of that stuff. And then a jet from one of the cornucopia scenes punctured my eardrum.”

Of course, the Oscar winner is also known for some particularly harsh red carpet falls. In 2013, Lawrence took a tumble on her way to accept Best Actress for Silver Linings Playbook. 

 In a recent interview on Heather McMahan’s Absolutely Not podcast, Lawrence referred to the fall as a “horrific humiliation” that completely “erased” everything she’d planned to say in her speech. 

“I didn’t want to acknowledge the possibility that I would win. I didn’t want to write down a speech,” she said back in October, per EW. “I had everything in my head. I was very, very nervous, but I was ready. All of the adrenaline clears out and they call my name and I’m elated and I’m in shock. And then I fell, and it erased everything from my mind. My full brain went blank. I can look back at it now fondly, but for a very long time the fall thing was very sensitive.”
