Jennifer Lawrence on Friday suffered an injury in or near her eye while filming Netflix’s movie “Don’t Look Up” on a set outside of Boston, according to a report from The Boston Globe.
Two sources close to the production told The Boston Globe that the actress was hit by debris that came from a special-effects explosion at the movie’s filming location in Brockton, Massachusetts.
The report said that during the controlled explosion, a trash can crashed through a window, causing fragments to hit Lawrence, who covered her face.
Filming was paused for a day after her injury early Friday morning, and Lawrence is expected to recover, a source told Boston’s ABC affiliate WCVB.
“Don’t Look Up” has been filming in and around Boston, according to WCVB, and it’s set to be released on Netflix this year. Some photos captured of Lawrence and DiCaprio filming “Don’t Look Up” show them at a Boston transit station. Lawrence, who seems to have red-colored hair and short bangs as part of the film, is also seen wearing a face shield while leaving the set.
