Lawrence on her hospital drama

Jennifer Lawrence has told how she ended up in hospital fearing an ulcer following the Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere in Los Angeles.

The US actress told the Late Show With David Letterman that she went to A&E only to discover it was a false alarm.

The Oscar winner, 23, said: " I thought I had an ulcer, but it turns out it was a 'fulcer!' I went to the emergency room."

She candidly told the chat show host: "I just had this really bad pain for, like, three weeks. And you know you can only s**t your pants so many times a day before you go to the emergency room, before you're like 'I need to go to the hospital'."

Jennifer said she had an endoscopy and after passing out the first lucid conversation she remembers having was " about the Kardashians".

She was later back on form for the New York premiere where she was reported as saying she felt "good... just gassy."

A source told the New York Daily News: "She had a brief doctor visit some time before the premiere. She had cramps and stomach pain. Turns out it was gas."
