Jennifer Lawrence was so cool about nude scenes in her upcoming movie “Red Sparrow” she made the cast and crew uncomfortable. How cool is that? She admits it took getting used to, but after a while she didn’t even bother dressing between takes.

The ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ star plays a Russian ballerina recruited to become a spy in the upcoming thriller co-starring Joel Edgerton.

Her character goes through a lengthy and harsh indoctrination process to turn her into a seductress and assassin.

She likened getting naked in front of the cast and crew for one scene to childhood nightmares about being the only one nude in a classroom full of kids.

“There’s one particular scene in the movie where your nightmare comes true from grade school, where you’re standing naked in front of a classroom full of people. So that became a reality, but it actually wasn’t that bad,” she told “Entertainment Tonight.”

“Everybody made me feel so comfortable that I probably, at a certain point, started making everybody else uncomfortable.

“Because I’d be like, ‘I don’t want the robe. I’m hot. I’m eating.’ Everybody’s like, ‘She needs to cover up.'”

In fact, the 27-year-old actress is more concerned about how her attempts at a Russian accent will be received by critics.

“I’ve never done a foreign accent before. It was daunting and scary but I hope we pulled it off,” she said.

“I don’t want to talk about the accent until the movie comes out because I don’t want to say, ‘I did this and I did that, and it was really quite easy for me,’ and then just get annihilated.”

Lawrence also revealed she trained as a ballerina for four months before shooting began.

“The idea of me being a ballerina was, before four months of training, laughable. Now I can move my arms a little bit. “I couldn’t get on pointe or anything like that, but it was more helpful for just kind of learning the mental and physical discipline that goes [into ballet]. It was more of a character study.”

The movie focuses on prima ballerina Dominika Egorova, who joins Sparrow School, after a career-ending injury.

The secret intelligence service trains exceptional young people to use their minds and bodies as weapons.

Egorova emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow after completing the sadistic training process. As she comes to terms with her new abilities, Dominika meets a CIA agent who tries to convince her that he is the only person she can trust, according to a film synopsis.

The film hits theaters March 2.
