[Movies] Jennifer Lawrence Went Deaf On The Set Of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Posted by Joseph Lee on 11.09.2013
She shares some memories of being on set...
In an interview with Vanity Fair, Jennifer Lawrence revealed that she went deaf in one ear on the set of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Here are highlights:
On enjoying her wetsuit scenes: "Josh [Hutcherson] and I could just swim in the water or, like, pee any time you want[ed]. Anytime you have to pee, you can just run right in the water. It was amazing."
On losing her hearing on set: "I went deaf in one ear for months. . . . But that wasn't actually physically challenging. 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."
On her concern about fame: "I guess my main worry is that people will start hating what I hate about myself. I worry that everybody will think I am really annoying and just want me to shut up. Which would make so much sense because I annoy myself . . . I guess I want people to know that if they are annoyed with me, I get it, it's totally cool. Please forgive me."
