Celebrity websites TMZ and the Boston Globe reported on Friday that Oscar actor Jennifer Lawrence was hit by flying glass in the eye while filming a new movie in Boston.
Glass from a controlled explosion on the set of “Don’t Look Up” cut Lawrence’s eyelid and left her bleeding, TMZ said.
The Boston Globe said that in the accident that occurred after midnight on Thursday, the extent of the injury is unclear. The newspaper quoted two sources close to the producer as saying that Lawrence was holding her face when the paramedics arrived and stopped filming on Friday.
Netflix, which plans to release a comedy about the two astronomers, declined to comment on this report. Lawrence representatives did not immediately return a request for comment.
Deadline, a Hollywood distribution agency, quoted an unnamed source as saying that Lawrence is recovering.
“Don’t Look Now,” directed by Adam McKay, boasts a star-studded cast including Timothee Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Leonardo DiCaprio, Chris Evans and Meryl Streep.
Lawrence, 30, who won a best actress Oscar in 2013 for “Silver Linings Playbook,” has not appeared on film since 2019’s “X-Men: Dark Phoenix” but has four new movies in the works, according to movie database IMDB.com
