Jennifer Lawrence apologises to the people of Hawaii

JENNIFER Lawrence has apologised to the people of Hawaii after she was accused of being offensive.

The Oscar-winning actress recently revealed that she almost killed a crew member of 'The Hunger Games' in Hawaii when she caused some "sacred" rocks to come loose after "butt scratching" on them but people were not impressed with her story.

Taking to Facebook, she wrote: "I meant absolutely no disrespect to the Hawaiian people. I really thought that I was being self-deprecating about the fact that I was 'the curse,' but I understand the way it was perceived was not funny and I apologise if I offended anyone."

Speaking previously about the incident, Jennifer said: "Oh my God, they were so good for butt itching.

"One rock that I was butt scratching on ended up coming loose, and it was a giant boulder and it rolled down this giant mountain and almost killed our sound guy. His whole station got destroyed. It was this huge, dramatic deal.

"All the Hawaiians were like, 'Oh my God, it's the curse!' And I was sitting in the corner like, 'Haha! I'm your curse! I wedged it loose with my ass!'"

Meanwhile, Jennifer also admitted she refused to do any stunts after completing work on 'The Hunger Games'.

The 26-year-old actress had had enough of getting physical on screen following the four-movie dystopian saga, so when it came to her latest movie 'Passengers', she left the bulk of the action to her co-star Chris Pratt.

She explained: "As soon as I wrapped 'Hunger Games' I was done with stunts."
