Actress Jennifer Lawrence was left with a cut to her eyelid Friday after what was supposed to be a “controlled glass explosion” went awry during filming of her new movie Don’t Look Up, TMZ reports. “An explosion was set up for a stunt in which glass shatters,” a source tells Page Six. “It was a stunt in which the glass was supposed to shatter—but it injured her.” Sources tell TMZ that the cut bled profusely but “it wasn’t that bad.” Lawrence was filming a scene with Timothee Chalamet when the accident, which prompted a pause in production, happened. Don’t Look Up, which co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio, has been filming in Boston, per Page Six. Lawrence plays an astronomer trying to alert people to the danger of an approaching asteroid.
