  • Jennifer Lawrence suffered a cut on her eyelid due to an accident on the set of "Don't Look Up," a report says
  • The production was shut down Friday following Lawrence's injury
  • Lawrence is recovering and doing well, reports say

Jennifer Lawrence was injured on the set of her new movie, "Don't Look Up," Friday, resulting in production being halted for the day, a report says.

While Lawrence was filming a scene on the Massachusetts set of the Netflix film, the "controlled glass explosion" didn't go as planned, TMZ reported, citing unnamed sources "connected to the production." A shard of glass cut Lawrence's eyelid and it bled heavily, the report said.

The extent of the actress' injury is unclear, but sources told TMZ, "It wasn't that bad." An unnamed source also told The Enterprise's news partner, WCVB-TV, that Lawrence is recovering and "will be OK" following the incident. 

Prior to the accident, Lawrence and Timothée Chalamet were filming a scene in which they spray-painted a window of a local Enterprise Building and were caught by police with SUVs decorated as New York Police Department cruisers, USA Today reported. A trash can was thrown into the window a short time later, which resulted in the "controlled glass explosion."

The actress then fell to the ground, prompting Chalamet and crew members to check on her. Lawrence was brought inside the Enterprise Building to receive treatment for her injury.

The cast and crew were expected to film Friday night and early Saturday morning, but the incident shut down the production.

TMZ also shared photos from the set of "Don't Look Up" taken prior to the accident, and they featured Lawrence and Chalamet kissing and snuggling on a mattress with a pack of beers.

Oscar winners Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio play the lead roles in Adam McKay's movie. In "Don't Look Up," they play two astronomers who set out on a media tour to warn the public that a meteor will destroy Earth in just six months.

Aside from Lawrence and DiCaprio, several other big names are part of the cast of the Netflix film, including Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Ariana Grande, Chalamet, Matthew Perry, Himesh Patel, Cate Blanchett, Kid Cudi, Rob Morgan and Tomer Sisley. Streep and Blanchett have also won multiple Academy Awards, People noted.

"It's about a global catastrophe but it's sort of funny like Dr. Strangelove for 2020 about global warming, a metaphor of that," Streep said about the movie when she appeared on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" in December. "I play the president of the United States."
