Jennifer Lawrence went partially deaf while filming “Catching Fire,” the 2013 second installment in “The Hunger Games” film franchise. Speaking with Vanity Fair, the actor explained that she developed an ear infection from all the diving she had to do for the film and ended up with a punctured eardrum. She went deaf in one ear for months as a result. “That wasn’t actually physically challenging. It was just ear challenging,” Lawrence said of the injury. “Because I got all of these ear infections from the diving and the water and all of that stuff. And then a jet from one of the cornucopia scenes punctured my eardrum.” Yikes!
It wasn’t the first time that Lawrence suffered an accident while filming for the movie franchise. In 2012, Lawrence also sustained a minor injury while shooting a scene for “The Hunger Games” that led to her being rushed to a nearby hospital. She explained to The Hollywood Reporter that she thought she’d ruptured her spleen. “I had to do 10 ‘wall runs,’ where you run at the wall as hard as you can to get traction. I ran at it and my foot didn’t go up, so I caught the wall with my stomach. My trainer thought I had burst my spleen,” she said. “I had to get a CAT scan and go into a tube where they put this fiery liquid in your body.” While she did end up with bad bruises, Lawrence was otherwise fine, fortunately.
