There are so many reasons why we love Jennifer Lawrence, not least of which is her knack for getting into the most hilariously awkward situations. For example, she once almost killed a man by scratching her butt.

During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show on Friday, the Passengers actress shared the bizarre story.

"We were filming [Hunger Games] in Hawaii, and there were sacred rocks," Lawrence recalled. "They were, I don't know, ancestors—who knows? They were sacred and you're not supposed to sit on them because you're not supposed to expose your genitalia to them.

"I, however, was in a wetsuit for this whole shoot so—oh my god, they were so good for butt itching!" she said, then miming the motion of scratching her derrière on the rocks and letting out a moan of satisfaction.

"One rock," she continued, stifling an uncomfortable laugh. "One rock that I was butt-scratching on ended up coming loose. It was a giant boulder and it rolled down this mountain and almost killed our sound guy. This whole station, like, got destroyed. It was a huge, dramatic deal. And all the Hawaiians were like, 'Oh my god! It's the curse!' And I'm sitting in the corner going 'I'm your curse.' I wedged it loose with my ass!"
