Incredible but true, Jennifer Lawrence had a tooth in a computer-generated image while filming Don’t Look Up, Adam McKay’s latest squeaky movie available on Netflix.
A squeaky satire denouncing political and civic inaction in the face of the climate emergency, Don’t Look Up is breaking records on Netflix. Even if Adam McKay’s film divides critics and audiences, it continues to speak for its subject matter but also for its wacky shoot, according to the team.
The director also testified to this unusual filming by deliberately slipping a passage from the backstage to the editing of the film to celebrate the strange experience of filming Don’t Look Up. It must be said that the feature film, which brings together a slew of stars, connects the incredible situations in this quest of two astronomers trying to warn humanity of a deadly threat from a comet.
There is one who also lived a bizarre shoot, it is Jennifer Lawrence. Headlining with Leonardo DiCaprio, the actress had a mishap at the start of filming which impacted the production of Don’t Look Up thereafter. She has indeed lost a tooth, and more particularly a facet. Nothing serious at first glance except that the current health situation has turned everything upside down, as she confided to Variety :
“I lost a tooth quite early in the shoot. And I couldn’t go to the dentist until the movie was over, so I had to shoot a lot of the movie without my tooth.”
But you won’t see it in the movie because the production just put a CGI dent in Jennifer Lawrence. The actress gave the background to this astonishing anecdote during her stint at Stephen Colbert’s Late Show :
“And I lost a tooth, like, pretty fast at first … Eating a lollipop was really stupid. It was a facet. I don’t know if you know what’s under a facet. , but it’s much worse, it’s like a sharp fang. And so, I lost a veneer, and I couldn’t go to the dentist, because of COVID, so they just added a special effect on my tooth.”
