Jennifer Lawrence has stunned fans by going completely nude in her new film No Hard Feelings, which has just been released on Netflix in the US.
The Oscar-winning actress performs full-frontal nudity in one very explicit fight scene in the raunchy romantic comedy, which hit theaters in June this year.
Now fans have been left completely shocked on social media by the eye-popping scene, which sees the 33-year-old tackle a group of troublemakers on the beach after they stole all her clothes.
‘Why does Jennifer Lawrence fight naked in this movie?’ wrote one shocked fan last night.
The particular scene, which takes place halfway through the film, shows Jennifer’s character Maddie skinny-dipping with a 19-year-old student whom she tries to seduce.
Up until this point in the foul-mouthed comedy, viewers followed J-Law and the scene-stealing Andrew Barth Feldman in a very awkward romance.
Maddie (Lawrence) has been assigned to date Percy (Feldman) by his parents, who want their son to have some romantic experiences before he goes to college.
The Scene: Movie fans who hadn’t seen the film when it was released earlier this summer are in for a big shock now that it’s available to watch on Netflix in the US. It’s a bit of a spoiler if you haven’t seen it yet, but Jennifer Lawrence goes completely nude in her comedy No Hard Feelings
Shock: Fans took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to share their surprise at the full frontal scene in the film
Their awkward dates lead to them both undressing on the beach and when their clothes are stolen, a completely naked Maddie runs across the sand to aggressively win them back from a group of pranksters.
‘Jennifer Lawrence is naked in No Hard Feelings? What the f**k,” someone wrote on X.
“I wasn’t even paying attention to the movie I put on at work and suddenly I turned around to see Jennifer Lawrence beating up teenagers naked on the beach and getting punched in the pussy,” one fan rudely wrote on X.
Another wrote: ‘Jennifer Lawrence is Freggin hilarious in No Hard Feelings. She’s completely fearless, gets all kinds of ass naked, and is a foul-mouthed truck driver. If I didn’t respect her so much, I’d probably ask her to marry me.”
One fan joked: ‘Never thought I’d see a naked body of Jennifer Lawrence hitting a child on the beach, but maybe nature heals.’
The film was a modest hit this summer, grossing $87 million at the box office on a budget of $45 million.
The nude scene isn’t a secret, though, as Jennifer herself spoke about it publicly while promoting the film.
“Everyone in my life and my team does the right thing and says, ‘Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?’ she told Variety this year. ‘I didn’t even think about it. I thought it was hilarious.’
Some fans wondered why Jennifer, who won an Oscar in 2013 for Silver Linings Playbook, chose to do a fully nude scene in that context.
One fan wrote on #NoHardFeelings that is extremely baffling. You won an OSCAR girl, why on earth did you say yes to that?’
Another asked: ‘Did I actually see Jennifer Lawrence fight naked? Wtf. Girl no.”
In the film, Jennifer stars as Maddie Barker, an Uber driver and bartender who answers a Craigslist ad to help the Beckers, the wealthy parents of 19-year-old Percy Becker, an awkward man with no experience with girls and who is sociable.

The film received mixed reviews from critics and audiences due to its crude humor and weak plot.
The R-rated comedy also stars Andrew Barth Feldman (as Percy), Laura Benanti as Allison Becker, and Matthew Broderick as Laird Becker.
No Hard Feelings also stars Natalie Morales, Hasan Minhaj, Kyle Mooney, Scott MacArthur, and Amalia Yoo.
Brian Viner of The Daily Mail gave the film a paltry two stars upon release, saying that Lawrence failed to give the “charmless” film the kiss of life.
Viner wrote: ‘It’s a romantic comedy so weakly constructed, so lazily written, so devoid of humor and charm, that the ghost of Billy Wilder is choking on his heavenly cigar. Yet it is not without promise.’
“Jennifer Lawrence plays the lead role, always a captivating presence on screen, although, as it turns out, she’s not quite talented enough to turn water into wine.”
Viner criticized the full-frontal nude scene, writing that “[it] feels born of absolute desperation, just like some decidedly clumsy moments of slapstick.”
