Jennifer Lawrence's embarrassing food coma


The 24-year-old actress may boast a trim physique but it seems she isn't one for dieting. Speaking in a joint interview with her The Hunger Games co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson about what home cooked meal they would like, Jennifer was reminded of a time when she overindulged. "Do you remember that one time I was at your house and we ate a whole pizza and I stopped at McDonald's and got a double quarter pounder?" she said to Josh during the chat with BBC Radio 1. "And then I passed out into a food coma and had ketchup packets stuck to my ass. I have a picture of it. While we were filming a film called The Hunger Games!" The trio have grown close since shooting the first movie, which was released in 2012. They are currently awaiting the release of the third instalment, Mockingjay - Part 1, and Jennifer enjoyed reprising the role of Katniss Everdeen alongside her pals.

"It's always exciting 'cos they're my best friends," she smiled. "So we always have a blast shooting these movies and also the story it was really different; there weren't games this time and we're getting deeper into the war. There's just more to do and my character starts out very stripped down and has totally lost herself and kind of has to rebuild. So it was exciting."

It wasn't all fun for the blonde beauty though. When she was asked to recall her favourite scene her co-stars were quick to remind her of a part in which she sings, much to Jennifer's embarrassment.

"Let's talk about her most traumatic day on set! No that was awful, that's my biggest fear. I never ever, ever like singing and I never want to sing in front of people, so that was terrible," she sighed.

"On set I'm like, 'No make-up, this had to be raw, this has to be real,' and then I watch it and I'm like, 'OH MY GOD!'"

Josh added that he cringes when watching himself back in the part of Peeta Mellark.
