In the lead up to her latest film Don’t Look Up, Jennifer Lawrence appeared on the December cover of Vanity Fair. In a discussion which ranged from how she would parent her forthcoming child and a nude photo scandal, the actress detailed the life-threatening experience as a passenger on a private plane. According to the Hunger Games alum, she was travelling from her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky to New York City when the plane suffered double engine failure.
The actress joked that flying private meant she “deserved to die” before she took a more serious tone. “My skeleton was all that was left in the seat,” Laurence told the publication.
“We were all just going to die,” she said. “I started leaving little mental voicemails to my family, you know, ‘I’ve had a great life, I’m sorry.’”
Per the usual comedic finesse of the actress, she quipped, “I just felt guilty. Everybody was going to be so bummed. And, oh, God, [my dog] Pippi was on my lap, that was the worst part. Here’s this little thing who didn’t ask to be a part of any of this.”
The jet was forced to make an emergency landing. The jet had apparently hit the runway, bounced, and hit the runway again before coming to a halt. Rescue crews had to pry the doors open. Thankfully no one was harmed.
During the interview, the 31-year-old discussed the trauma that she experienced when in 2014, hackers leaked naked images of herself and other notable women such as Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez.
“Anybody can go look at my naked body without my consent, any time of the day,” Lawrence said. “Somebody in France just published them. My trauma will exist forever.”
Lawrence will star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep and Timothée Chalamet for the Netflix film, Don’t Look Up. The movie releases on December 24 and follows two astronomers who embark on a press tour to warn the world of an approaching asteroid.
