Jennifer Lawrence went method while filming her highly anticipated new movie Don’t Look Up — at least when it came to her character’s fondness for weed.

The Oscar-winning actress admitted she got high on the Boston set of the Adam McKay-directed social satire while playing a PhD candidate who calms her nerves with cannabis after discovering a planet-killing comet hurtling towards Earth.

It was McKay who first referenced her, uh, commitment to the role during a post-screening Q&A in Los Angeles Thursday night in which they were joined by co-stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Meryl Streep.

“I know what you’re going to say, and I wasn’t pregnant [at the time],” said Lawrence, who announced in September she’s expecting her first child with husband Cooke Maroney.

“You were not pregnant,” agreed McKay before asking her permission to spill the beans: “Can I say this?”

“I think so, just nobody tell my mother-in-law,” Lawrence cracked to a Westwood theater full of awards voters and press.
