Sophie Turner Remembers That Time Jennifer Lawrence Punched Her in the Crotch: ‘It Was Pretty Funny’

Low blow, J-Law.

The X-Men: Apocalypse star went a little overboard during a playful brawl between her costars on the film, Evan Peters and Sophie Turner – resulting in the latter getting a punch below the belt.

In an interview with Just Jared, the Game of Thrones star explained what it was like working with Lawrence, and shared the crotch anecdote as an example of her typical shenanigans.

“She is just how you’d want Jennifer Lawrence to be. She’s exactly the same person that you see in interviews. And she was just amazing,” Turner began.

“She punched me in the vagina once. I didn’t ask her to either. It just happened,” she explained. “Evan [Peters] and I were having a fake fight and I said something like, ‘I’ll c— punch you’ or ‘I’ll punch you in the crotch’ and then Jen thought that I said, ‘Please c— punch me Jen.’ So she punched me in the vagina and I was like, ‘Awesome.’ It was pretty funny.”

Turner, who plays a young Jean Grey in the film, recently revealed how her Twitter followers helped her land the role.

“I actually just started getting a ton of Tweets saying, ‘Oh, Sophie, they’re recasting Jean Grey as a young 18-year-old,’ and people just telling me to audition, so I emailed my agent and was like, ‘What’s going on with this?’ ” Turner told PEOPLE exclusively.

“She was like, ‘Actually, they’re interested in you, so go for an audition.’ So I put myself on tape, got a callback, flew out to L.A. for the screen test, and then I got it!”
