Jennifer Lawrence has stunned fans by going completely naked in her new film No Hard Feelings that 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, that was released in cinemas earlier this year.
Now fans have taken to social media in complete shock at the surprising scene, that shows the 33-year-old tackle a group of troublemakers on the beach after they steal all her clothing.
‘Why is Jennifer Lawrence in this movie naked fighting?’ one shocked fan wrote just last night.
Jennifer’s character Maddie had gone skinny dipping with a 19-year-old student who she is trying to seduce.
Up until this point in the foul-mouthed comedy, viewers had been following J-Law and the scene-stealing Andrew Barth Feldman embark on a very awkward romance.
Which is why the full frontal naked scene from Jennifer seems all the more shocking.
The scene: Movie fans who hadn’t seen the film when it was released earlier this summer are getting a big shock now that it’s available to watch on Netflix in the US. It’s somewhat of a spoiler if you haven’t seen, but Jennifer Lawrence gets completely naked 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
‘Jennifer Lawrence is naked in No Hard Feelings? What the f**k,’ one wrote on X.
‘Was not remotely paying attention to the movie I put on at work & all of a sudden I turn around to Jennifer Lawrence beating up teenagers naked on a beach & getting punched in the p***y,’ a fan wrote crassly on X.
Another wrote: ‘Jennifer Lawrence is Freggin hilarious in No Hard Feelings. She’s completely fearless, gets all kinds of butt naked, and is a foul mouthed truck driver. If I didn’t respect her so much I’d probably ask her to marry me.’
A fan joked: ‘Never thought I’d see a naked Jennifer Lawrence body slam a kid on the beach but maybe nature is healing.’
The film was a modest hit this summer bringing in $87m at the box office against its $45m budget.
However, the nude scene has been no secret — as Jennifer herself spoke about it publicly when promoting the film.
‘Everyone in my life and my team is doing the right thing and going, “Are you sure? Are you sure? Are you sure?”‘ she told Variety this year. ‘I didn’t even have a second thought. It was hilarious to me.’
Some fans wondered why Jennifer, who won an Oscar in 2013 for Silver Linings Playbook, opted to due a fully nude scene in that context.
One fan wrote on X: ‘To be 100[%] clear: I am a HUGE fan of J-Law — hell, one of the only JOY defenders out there — but her decision to run around buck naked on a beach suplexing teenagers in #NoHardFeelings is monumentally baffling. You won an OSCAR girl, what the hell made you say “yes” to that?’
Another just asked: ‘Did I really just watch Jennifer Lawrence fight in the nude? Wtf. Girl no.’
In the movie, Jennifer stars as Maddie Barker, an Uber driver and bartender who answers a Craigslist ad to help the Becker’s, who are wealthy parents of Percy Becker, 19, an awkward guy with no experience with girls and being social.

The film earned mixed reviews from critics and the audience due to its crude humor and flimsy 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 Lawrence couldn’t give the ‘charmless’ film the kiss of life.
Viner wrote: ‘It’s a romantic comedy so feebly constructed, so lazily written, so devoid of wit and charm, that the ghost of Billy Wilder must be choking on his celestial cigar. Yet it is not without promise.’
‘It stars Jennifer Lawrence, always an engaging presence on screen, although not, as it turns out, quite talented enough to turn water into wine.’
Viner slammed the full-frontal nude scene writing that ‘[it] feels born of absolute desperation, as do some decidedly clunky moments of slapstick.’
