Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she fangirled over Ariana Grande after meeting her on the set of Don’t Look Up.

The pair will co-star in Netflix’s ensemble comedy, which stars Lawrence and Leonardo DiCaprio as two mid-level astronomers who discover that a comet – described as a “planet killer” – is on a collision course with earth.

Speaking at a Bafta event on Wednesday (17 November), Lawrence sung the “Dangerous Woman” singer’s praises, saying that Grande “can’t make bad music”.

“I’ve since reflected on my behavior with Ariana Grande. I went full radio contest winner,” The Hunger Games star said (via Variety).

“I was so excited and nervous that at one point, I just kind of walked into her hotel room and sat down. I’ve just been thinking about it a lot lately. There were all of these trunks for her hair and makeup, and I was like, ‘Do you live here?’”

Also starring in Don’t Look Up are Meryl Streep, Jonah Hill, Cate Blanchett, Timothée Chalamet, Rob Morgan, Tyler Perry and Mark Rylance.
