Published on June 7, 2021

Jennifer Lawrence pushed through the sweltering heat and over 90 percent humidity while on the set of her upcoming film Red, White and Water in New Orleans.

The Oscar winner, 30, looked hard at work as she portrayed a veteran who is trying to acclimate to civilian life after suffering from brain damage in the Afghanistan War.

During the scene, she sported a burnt orange t-shirt, dark-wash jeans and a pair of sneakers while carrying a can of Coca-Cola and a tiny black notebook.

While on a break, she stood under a large, black umbrella and kept her blonde hair up in a messy ponytail while sporting minimal makeup.

Jennifer’s co-stars include Brian Tyree Henry and Samira Wiley as well as three-time Tony nominated actress Linda Emond.

When she began work on this film in 2019 it was the first movie she shot since announcing in September 2017 that she was taking a sabbatical from acting.

‘I don’t have anything set for two years,’ she told Savannah Guthrie on the Today  show back then, joking that she might ‘start making pots.’

In 2018, she founded her production company Excellent Cadaver, through which she is one of the producers on Red, White And Water.

Although an official release date has yet to be made public the movie’s IMDb page says it it scheduled to come out sometime this year.

Jennifer’s next film is the star-studded Netflix entry Don’t Look Up, which stars DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Gina Gershon, Jonah Hill, Matthew Perry and Meryl Streep, to name just a few.

Lawrence and Cooke Maroney tied the knot in 2019 at the Belcourt of Newport in Rhode Island with the likes of Adele, Cameron Diaz, and Emma Stone in attendance.

She was first linked to Cooke after they were introduced by mutual friends in 2018, and by February 2019, the blonde beauty was spotted wearing an engagement ring.

‘Well, he’s just the best person I’ve ever met in my whole life. It was a very, very easy decision,’ she told Entertainment Tonight after accepting his proposal.

‘He really is, and he gets better,’ the actress went on.
