Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she almost killed a crew member while filming for The Hunger Games just because she wanted to scratch her butt. The 26-year-old actress appeared on The Graham Norton Show along with co-star Chris Pratt to promote their new sci-fi movie Passengers on Friday (2 December) and explained the funny story that could have turned ugly only because she "had an itch".

Next, Lawrence revealed the incident and told the audience that she was dressed in a wet suit for a scene when suddenly her behind started to itch. So what did the actress do? She sat on a rock and started rubbing her butt on it to relieve her of the discomfort. However, as she sat on a rock, it rolled down a slope almost killing the crew member.

"It ended up coming loose," Jennifer smiled. "And it was a giant boulder and it rolled down this mountain and it almost killed our sound guy!"

The actress added that the rock she sat on was "scared" to the indigenous people.

"You were not supposed to sit on them because you weren't supposed to expose your genitalia to them," she told the audience and added that she was allowed to as she was wearing a wet suit.

"It was this huge dramatic deal and all the Hawaiians were like, 'It's the curse!' And I'm over in the corner going, 'I'm your curse. I wedged it loose with my ass'," she said.
