JLaw on the hunt for platonic colonic

Jennifer Lawrence and her The Hunger Games co-star Josh Hutcherson are considering having a colonic together.

The Hunger Games actress has been open about being a hypochondriac in the past, something she again raised while on a US talk show. After admitting she always likes to know if there is a test for an illness she merrily discussed her stomach problems, revealing she and her co-star have considered taking drastic steps to keep their insides in tip-top condition.

"Josh and I were talking about getting colonics together," she giggled to David Letterman. "But we were like, 'Can we get a couples colonic? Like platonic - a platonic colonic?! Do you guys have those?'"

Jennifer is currently promoting the penultimate Hunger Games movie Mockingjay - Part 1. The previous instalment Catching Fire was out last year and Jennifer had to reschedule some of her appearances because she suffered crippling stomach pains. Initially she thought she had an ulcer, although it turned out to be a fulcer - her word for a fake version.

"I just had this really bad pain for like three weeks, and you can only sh*t your pants so many times a day before you have to go to the emergency room, before you're like 'I need to go to the hospital,'" she explained at the time.

Although she's had a bit of an illness this time around it isn't anything serious. That meant she was free to show off her singing voice on the show, much to her horror. Jennifer performs a song in the latest movie and was terrified of laying down the vocals, so much so she asked if Lorde could do it and she could lip-sync. That wasn't allowed, and although she did it the star hasn't listened back to the sequence.

She claims to sound like a "tone deaf Amy Winehouse" when she sings, adding she was given a complex thanks to a childhood incident.

"I have a mother - a Southern mother - who used to just tell me that I was amazing at everything, and I could do everything, but I can't, and this voice... I had when I was like eight, and so I sang in front of the school 'cause I was like, 'I can do that, I can do anything," she recalled.

"[The song was] Have a Holly Jolly Christmas - and it was a disaster! My dad laughed for like the entire week."
