The Fast Food Jennifer Lawrence Craved While Filming Red Sparrow

Jennifer Lawrence in Red Sparrow

It's no secret that filming TV and movies can be a grueling process. For action heavy films, this also includes a ton of physical training, as well as a diet and exercise regimen to ensure they look their best on the silver screen. Unfortunately, the dieting can sometimes get even more extreme, as stars all but starve themselves in preparation for nude scenes. Apparently Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is not one of those people, as she recently revealed that she didn't care to fast while filming Red Sparrow, despite appearing in nude scenes and physically demanding action sequences. In fact, she constantly craved one specific fast food joint.

I didn't starve for [Red Sparrow]... I can't live that kind of life. I just would want Jack in the Box and just [would have] to eat chicken breasts, so that to me is like I'm starving.

While Jennifer Lawrence was sure to nourish her body while filming Red Sparrow, it looks like the upcoming spy thriller wasn't exactly Jack in the Box friendly. Lawrence was sure to be strict with nutrition while playing the role of Dominika Egorov, which means it was nothing but grilled chicken breasts for the 27-year-old actress.

Jennifer Lawrence's comments to ET are sure to be refreshing for both audiences and industry professionals, who are used to seeing stars basically go hungry while filming projects with action and/or nudity. Since becoming one of Hollywood's most acclaimed modern actors, Lawrence has put her foot down regarding what she will and will not do while filming. For instance, she took umbrage with the amount of time it takes to get on Mystique's makeup in the X-Men franchise, resulting in the character not being blue for the majority of X-Men: Apocalypse.

The actresses' body has unfortunately been a conversation surrounding Jennifer Lawrence in the past few years. When she booked the role of Katniss in the Hunger Games franchise, book purists criticized Lawrence's weight. As Katniss and the denizens of District 12 are practically starving, critics believed that the actress was simply too healthy. She'd eventually prove herself when playing the role for four massively successful movies.

Most recently, Jennifer Lawrence was criticized for the dress she wore to Red Sparrow's recent press events across the pond. On a cold London day, Lawrence was photographed wearing a low cut dress, while her male co-stars were bundled in layers and coats. She eventually clapped back at the haters, revealing how she was happy to withstand the cold in order to wear such a stunning garment. Lawrence plays by no one's rules but her own, and she's not stopping anytime soon.
