We love Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss “the Girl on Fire” Everdeen—but only metaphorically. We’d much prefer that she did actually go up in flames, although word on the street has it that she had a pretty close call over the weekend at Cannes. We’re glad you’re A-OK, Jennifer!
According to Just Jared, The Hunger Games star and her cast mate, Liam Hemsworth, had a brush with disaster at a party they attended on Saturday. A spectator told the celeb news site, “Liam and Jennifer were sitting on a sofa in the VIP section of a party when all of a sudden, an 8-foot column with a platter of candles on top fell on top of them.” Yikes! But at least they’ve got quick reflexes; the source continued, “They both jumped up when it happened and thankfully no one was hurt. Liam and Jennifer both seemed pretty calm about it and laughed it off.”
The wackiest part? We’re pretty sure the party in question was the Cannes shindig celebrating The Hunger Games’ sequel, Catching Fire.
In the meantime, Jennifer has been burning it up on the red carpet. We might still be a little bit baffled by the weird flap thing on her dress the other day, but we’re loving her neon orange pumps from the Catching Fire photo call (seen up top). Here’s how to recreate the look yourself:
