The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ actress makes a shocking confession on ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ that she accidentally took an Ambien before filming a scene in ‘The Hunger Games’.
Jennifer Lawrence once took a drug during the production on “The Hunger Games”, but that was unintentional. The Oscar-winning actress made the shocking revelation when playing a game of “True Confessions” with Jimmy Fallon and John Oliver on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”.
“I once took an Ambien before filming a scene in ‘The Hunger Games’,” she said, letting the two funnymen guess whether she told a truth or a lie. “Were you sleeping in this scene?” Fallon asked. “No, in fact, I was dancing,” Lawrence replied.
“I woke up and I thought it was something else, it was like normal to take it,” Lawrence further explained. Oliver pointed out that she could cause a trouble for the studio if that was true, but she insisted that no one paid attention to “The Hunger Games” franchise right now since people are focused on “Star Wars” movies.
Both Fallon and Oliver guessed that it was true. “It’s plausible, it’s reckless, I kind of like it, if it’s not true I’m going to be very sad,” Oliver reasoned. And Lawrence admitted that it did really happen.
Also during the game, the 25-year-old actress had a slightly embarrassing moment when she had a booger on her nose. Fallon happened to see it and told her, “You have something on your nose.” Lawrence replied, “Is it a booger? I felt it,” while wiping her nose with her hand. “We’re on TV, there’s no way a booger can exist on TV,” she added as she, Fallon and Oliver laughed it off.
