Jennifer Lawrence ‘didn’t have a second thought’ when asked to do nude fight scene in No Hard Feelings

Jennifer Lawrence nude fight scene No Hard Feelings

“Everyone was going: ‘Are you sure?'”

Jennifer Lawrence was more than willing to throw herself into anything as part of her new comedy, No Hard Feelings.

The Oscar-winning actor’s latest project sees her play 32-year-old Uber driver, Maddie, who finds herself out of work when her car is repossessed for unpaid property taxes.

To make some money, she answers an online advert from a wealthy couple looking for someone to date their son, socially awkward animal shelter volunteer Percy – played by Andrew Barth Feldman – before he heads off to college.

Hilarity ensues as Maddie tries to seduce Percy and teach him some life skills before college.

In one scene, the pair go skinny dipping, but when someone steals their clothes, Lawrence’s character gets into a fight – in the nude.

Whilst some actors may have had at least a couple of reservations over the scene, it seems like J-Law was more than happy to get stuck in.

She told Variety: “Everyone in my life and my team is doing the right thing and going, ‘Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?’

“I didn’t even have a second thought. It was hilarious to me.”

Although the film is filled with a number of raucous and raunchy moments, Feldman says the filming never felt “weird or unsafe.”

Every situation that these characters end up in, you’re laughing your butt off,” he added.

The pair agreed that they “clicked” immediately on set, with Feldman saying: “On day one, we were telling each other our deepest darkest secrets and it only got deeper from there.”

So far the film has received mixed reviews from critics, with the summary on Rotten Tomatoes reading: “This raunchy comedy often plays it disappointingly safe, but Jennifer Lawrence’s comedic and dramatic chops ensure that the end result prompts No Hard Feelings.”

But it sounds like it’s gone down better with audiences, with the film earning an audience score of 88 percent, compared to 68 percent from critic reviews.
