‘The Hunger Games’: Jennifer Lawrence ‘Almost Crapped’ Her Pants Thanks to 1 Castmate

Jennifer Lawrence has never been one to filter her thoughts. This was especially true when she was younger and was portraying Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movies. The actor became famous for her many unfiltered anecdotes and penchant for oversharing. She even joked over the years that her publicist was always hoping that she’d be a bit less candid when giving interviews.

One prime example of Lawrence oversharing was when she was promoting The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on David Letterman’s Late Show back in 2013. Whilst there, the Silver Linings Playbook star got candid about some of the digestive issues she’d been having recently that caused her to eventually have to go to the emergency room. She also mentioned that she had a difficult time making it to the restroom.

Lawrence also mentioned that her digestive system was the subject of a nice little reset after Woody Harrelson (who played Haymitch Abernathy in The Hunger Games movies) gave her a super healthy beverage. “He was the other reason I almost crapped my pants,” Lawrence revealed about Harrelson. “He gave me some healthy drink that was so healthy, it shocked my system. I was like, ‘Woody, is there something in there that would make me crap my pants?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, there’s lots of stuff.’ He started listing all the stuff, and I started sweating.”

Of course, Harrelson probably didn’t realize that his health drink was going to have such an intense effect on Lawrence. However, he wasn’t above pranking and roughhousing with his fellow castmates. In fact, the talented actor once forced some socks down Lawrence’s throat at a party that she threw for The Hunger Games cast and crew as a joke.

Woody Harrelson loved pranking Lawrence

“It was just like ‘I’m having a little get together in my apartment’ and then he came in and there were two weapons.” Lawrence shared about Harrelson in an interview with BBC Radio 1. “There was a nerf disc and Woody’s gross vegan socks. He chased me around my apartment. I flipped over the couch trying to get away from him. He pinned me down and forced the socks so far down my throat that when he ripped it out I like almost threw up. I gagged.”

Clearly, the cast of The Hunger Games knew how to keep things light and fun when they weren’t filming the dystopian movies. While nearly pooping your pants and getting socks shoved down your throats doesn’t sound like a great time, Lawrence seemed to have found the humor in it. We can only imagine what she did to get back at her co-star.
