Only in Hollywood — and Cannes. At a party for Hunger Games: Catching Fire at the French film festival on May 18, star Jennifer Lawrence nearly, well, caught fire when a plate of candles, perched on a tall column, fell almost on top of her head!

According to Just Jared, Lawrence and her costar Liam Hemsworth “were sitting on a sofa in the VIP section of the party when all of a sudden, an 8-foot column with a platter of candles on top fell on top of them. They both jumped up when it happened and thankfully no one was hurt. Liam and Jennifer both seemed pretty calm about it and laughed it off.”

While Lawrence avoided getting ignited, the 22-year-old stunner was still smoldering hot at the fest. The actress hit the premiere of Jimmy P. in a white and black strapless color-block gown by Christian Dior, naturally; Lawrence is the face of Dior. Jimmy Choo shoes, Chopard jewels, and bold makeup completed her red-carpet look.
