Jennifer Lawrence sustained minor injuries from flying glass during a stunt gone awry on new movie Don't Look Up, according to reports.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, the Hunger Games star was part of a “controlled glass explosion” on the film’s set in Boston.

During the scene alongside her co-star Timothée Chalamet, shards of glass hit the actress, with the shoot then being suspended for the rest of the day.

It's thought that she returned to the set to recommence filming on Monday.

Helmed by The Big Short director Adam McKay, the comedy movie is being made for Netflix.

It centres on Lawrence playing a 'low-level' astronomer who discovers that a meteor is on a collision course with the Earth, and who then embarks on a worldwide press tour to try and alert humanity to the seriousness of the matter.

However, she soon discovers that an unbelieving world is less concerned than she had hoped.
