Following months and years of their friendship, the duo appeared on The Graham Norton Show along with Tom Holland. Jennifer Lawrence revealed the hilarious situations that she found herself in due to the make-up and the costume applied to her. Not to mention how McAvoy used to add to the problems as the duo joked it out on the sets of the X-Men franchise,

The video starts with Graham Norton asking Lawrence about her experience of being “back in the blue”.


“While back in the blue, apparently they simplified the ‘bluing’ of you” stated Graham Norton.

Jennifer Lawrence (being her) started her answer with a sarcastic comment,

“Yeah, turns out they never had to do 8 hours of full blown body paint, ever. It’s like a blue like pantyhose that goes around my whole body. That I can’t sit to pee in. Can’t do any form of bathroom. Like the guys who were made it were like “well, she’s a girl, she don’t go to the bathroom”

The Hunger Games actress continued about her bathroom trips and James McAvoy bursting in and pelting her with a BB gun.

“So, I pee standing up…out of a funnel.” James McAvoy starts his side of the tale with how he once barged in on Lawrence, “I actually barged in once. I’ve burst into her bathroom with a BB gun while she was trying to pee in a funnel.”

Lawrence chimed in between laughing and saying,


“He pelted me! It’s so hard to do because you have to stop while you’re in the middle of peeing to let the rest of it go out. Like that’s a whole scientific process. And so, I’m like, trying really hard like there’s a lot going on and then he bursts in and starts pelting me”

Jennifer Lawrence has been known as a fierce woman who is confident and comfortable in her own skin. The mentioning of this hilarious yet embarrassing story is a testament to her character.
