Jennifer Lawrence has revealed she lost her hearing in one ear during filming for Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The actress joined her co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth and director Francis Lawrence to answer fans' questions on Google+ Hangout. And the stars revealed they didn't have it easy shooting the stunts for the action movie.

Jennifer, who debuted a new pixie cut, revealed: "I went deaf in one ear for two-and-a-half weeks. I had a double ear infection, because I had to keep diving into the water," adding that the jets from the water punctured her eardrum.

The Oscar-winning actress revealed she had chopped all her hair off because her hair was "fried" from having to dye it all the time for different roles.

Meanwhile, Liam said he had dislocated his shoulder just from doing a cartwheel.

When asked what skill each actor would perform for the Game Makers, Liam said: "I dislocated my shoulder doing a cartwheel just recently actually. So I wouldn't do a cartwheel. That's what I wouldn't do... My friend did a one-handed cartwheel and then I tried to do it on my left arm - not my strong arm -dislocated it. Ouch! Off to the doctor, pop it back in."
