American actress, Jennifer Lawrence, has been injured on the set of Netflix’s Don’t Look Up - in which she’s starring alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep, Timothée Chalamet and Ariana Grande. 

Jennifer, 30, was on set filming in Massachusetts when a stunt went wrong - causing shards of glass to strike her in the face. 

Jennifer was filming a riot scene when a rubbish bin was thrown through a window next to her when the incident happened.

An insider revealed, "It was a routine stunt and everything seemed fine until the window shattered and she screamed and fell to the floor.

"The glass hit her above the eye but there were concerns tiny fragments might have gone in the eye so she was taken to hospital. 

"There doesn’t appear to be any long-term damage."

Despite the glass explosion, the Hunger Games star is said to be OK following the incident. But filming will be delayed while she recovers. 

She will play Kate Dibiasky - an astronomer who attempts to warn humans that the Earth is in danger from an approaching asteroid - in the film, written and directed by Adam McKay and due for release in 2021. 

The actress is reportedly pocketing £10 million for the sci-fi drama.
