Jennifer Lawrence was injured on the set of her latest film, "Don't Look Up," during an explosion, according to reports. Filming was shut down Friday after shards of glass hit in or near "The Hunger Games" star's eye during one of the scenes, sources told Page Six.

"An explosion was set up for a stunt in which glass shatters," the insider said. "It was a stunt in which the glass was supposed to shatter — but it injured her."

In the scene, a trash can is meant to be thrown through a window but Lawrence had not cleared the area when the glass shattered, Boston Globe reported. The actress did not sustain any serious injuries, according to the report but work on the film was put on hold for the day.

"Don't Look Up" tells the story of two astronomers trying to warn mankind of an approaching comet. Their attempts to alert the public are not taken seriously as the pair race against time to try and save humanity. The Netflix film sees Lawrence lead a stellar cast featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Timothée Chalamet, Cate Blanchett, Rob Morgan, Meryl Streep, and Jonah Hill. Filming was put on hold last spring due to the coronavirus pandemic but resumed in November.
