Jennifer Lawrence Got 'Really Drunk' Before Filming a Sex Scene With Chris Pratt

Jennifer Lawrence poses with fellow heavyweight actresses Cate Blanchett, Kate Winslet, Jane Fonda, Carey Mulligan, Brie Larson, Helen Mirren, and Charlotte Rampling for the brand new issue of The Hollywood Reporter.

Here’s what the 25-year-old Mockingjay star had to share during the roundtable discussion:

On her sex scene with Chris Pratt for Passengers: “I had my first real sex scene a couple weeks ago and it was really bizarre. It was really weird. I got really, really drunk. But then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done? I don’t know.’ And he was married. And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach. And I knew it was my job, but I couldn’t tell my stomach that. So I called my mom, and I was like, ‘Will you just tell me it’s OK?’ It was just very vulnerable. And you don’t know what’s too much. You want to do it real, you want everything to be real, but then … That was the most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”

Cate Blanchett Reacts to 'Carol' Uproar: 'Who Cares If I Had Lesbian Relationships or Not?'

Cate Blanchett transforms into Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s Little Prince on the cover of W magazine’s December/January issue.

Here’s what the 46-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the uproar over Carol‘s subject matter: “Art is supposed to be a provocation, not an education. In 2015, the point should be: Who cares if I had lesbian relationships or not? Call me old-fashioned, but I’ve always thought that my job as an actor was to raise and expand the audience’s sense of the universe.”

On the role of fashion in her films: “I love working with the costume designers on movies. You can visually represent the character through a dress or a bag or shoes. In Blue Jasmine, clothes illustrated my character’s demise. If I pair a Birkin bag with a knockoff sweater from Wal-Mart that looks like Chanel, I can subtly reveal the character, and I don’t have to play that emotions.”

On showing her wealth in Carol: “The mink was old and it kept falling apart. Between takes, Sandy Powell, the costume designer, would sew it back together by hand. I considered changing coats, but when you find the right thing, you know immediately: That coat was the one to tell Carol’s story. It was perfect.”
