Lawrence was hurt when glass almost hit her eye during a scene with Timothée Chalamet.

However, there's no need to worry about the actress, as sources say that she is doing fine but people on set were shaken up. The pair were filming a scene where a restaurant window was meant to explode as a trash can is thrown through it but did not go as planned.

In pictures obtained by the Daily Mail, Chalamet and others on set were seen rushing to Lawrence’s side, as she crouched on the ground and covered her face after the eruption. 

The disaster comedy film will see Lawrence play astronomer Kate Dibiasky, who tries to warn that the Earth is in danger of being hit by an asteroid. The Hunger Games alum looked almost unrecognizable on set in Boston, wearing a red wig with short bangs.
