While at a party for the second installment in the franchise, Hunger Games: Catching Fire, on May 18 at the prestigious film festival, Lawrence and co-star Liam Hemsworth nearly caught fire when a plate of candles fell on top of the two stars who play each other's love interest in the movies according to Us Weekly.

The on-screen couple were sitting on a sofa in the VIP section when an 8-foot column with a platter of lit candles fell down on top of them. Fortunately, both stars jumped out of the way and remained uninjured, laughing off the situation.

At the event, the 22-year-old blonde beauty wore a strapless white Christian Dior dress with floral detail on the side and topped it off with a pair of bright pink Maolo Blahnik stilettos.
