Jennifer Lawrence has revealed she found it really "bizarre" filming her very first sex scene with Chris Pratt for Passengers.

"It was weird.  And everything was done right; nobody did anything wrong. It's just a bizarre experience," she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Lawrence plays a woman who, along with thousands of others, is being transported to a distant colony planet.  Chris Pratt's character is accidentally woken from hypersleep 60 years early and decides to wake up Lawrence's character to avoid growing old and dying alone.

However, filming the love scene was particularly tough for the Hunger Games actress as Pratt is married to Anna Faris.

To get through, she said she got "really, really drunk".

"But then that led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, 'What Have I done?  I don't know.'" she added.

"And he was married.  And it was going to be my first time kissing a married man, and guilt is the worst feeling in your stomach.  And I knew it was my job, but I couldn't tell my stomach that. 

"So I called my mom, and I was like, 'Will you just tell me it's OK?'  It was just very vulnerable.  And you don't know what's too much.  You want it to be real, you want everything to be real, but then... That was the most vulnerable I've ever been."

Lawrence was taking part in the annual actress round-table interview with The Hollywood Reporter with Helen Mirren, Carey Mulligan, Jane Fonda, Kate Winslet, Brie Larson, and Charlotte Rampling.
