Jennifer Lawrence's hearing woes on Hunger Games set

Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about the injuries she suffered while filming The Hunger Games sequel, revealing a water pump burst her eardrum and she was partially deaf for weeks.

The Oscar winner was plagued by ear infections while filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, causing her to lose the hearing in one ear.


Her health woes were then magnified when powerful sprays of water, intended to simulate stormy weather during a hurricane scene, punctured her eardrum.


The actress detailed her hearing issues during an online question-and-answer session with co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, and director Francis Lawrence.


She says, "I went deaf in one ear for two and a half weeks. I had a double ear infection, because I had to keep diving into the water... and then I had to jump into this water that was supposed to be like hurricane water so there were these really powerful jets and the ear that was infected I had to turn (towards the jets) and the jets... punctured my ear drum."
