Jennifer Lawrence halts filming of Mockingjay due to illness.

'Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen in the forthcoming 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' which is to be released in the next few weeks, is one of the hottest names in Hollywood at the moment. One is used to Ms. Lawrence breezing through the demands of being one of cinema's brightest young stars with a demure ease which belies how stringent the requirements often are on the world's biggest movie shoots.

But a recent occurrence on the set of 'Mockingjay: Part I', the third movie in the 'Hunger Games' quadrilogy, indicates just how intense the demands are that are placed on actors in the Hollywood system.

During a particularly gruelling bout of filming, Lawrence was forced to break from filming completely after complaining of nausea and exhaustion. Lawrence was apparently filming in a special effects pool at the time, which simulated strong and undulating waves at sea. It seems that Lawrence might have suffered from an unusual bout of seasickness, and the 23 year-old actress was forced to return to her trailer and take a complete break from filming for some time.

Apparently Lawrence had some problems on the set with special effects staff, who failed to stop a boat that she was sitting on from rocking, resulting in the actress being physically sick on set. Nonetheless, despite the problems incurred, after a short break she was able to return to filming, without too many schedule difficulties for the production being incurred.
