Jennifer Lawrence reveals her trailer was infested with crickets for months after co-stars pulled a prank on her

While making 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1', Jennifer Lawrence had to deal with more than just her character's life-and-death struggles. We hear that the 24-year-old was also at the receiving end of her rather mischievous castmates.

At the film's Los Angeles premiere, it was revealed that at least two of her movies' co-stars pranked the actress who plays Katniss in the film. The worst prank seemed to have come from Jeffrey Wright, the 48-year-old actor from the ongoing movie franchise.

"I got a Tiffany's box filled with crickets!" Jennifer said on the red carpet. The shock of opening a gift supposedly from Tiffany's, only to find a large number of insects wasn't even the worst part.

There was much more to it. "They were in my trailer for months and I couldn't get them out," the young Oscar-winning actress added about the ordeal.

While not behind the cricket prank, Josh Hutcherson — one of The Hunger Games' leading men — agreed that pranking Jen was great fun.

"We just love giving her c**p all the time, and whether it's a prank or just, you know, giving her a hard time, it's the best," the 22-year-old actor chuckled.

Despite all of this trickery directed her way, JenLaw may have given as good as she got during production. Although she did not reveal details, she noted, "We all mess with each other to make sure all of us have a conflicted experience."

Sounds like fun on the sets — well, almost.
