Jennifer Lawrence slams accusations of a fight she has with director David O. Russell.

The Hunger Games actress shared a rare Facebook post on Friday, Feb 27, to stop the rumor on this drama.

"Hey guys! It's Jen!" the Oscar winner, 24, began. "I know I don't go on here a lot because I can barely work email but there's been a terrible rumor going around the last 24 hours so I wanted to clear it up."

Said rumor involved a reported spat between Lawrence and director Russell, 56. Reports began to circulate that the two, who previously collaborated on films like Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, had gotten into it on the set of their third movie together, Joy.

In a report by US weekly, J. Law said that, "David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship," Lawrence wrote. "I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey. This movie is going great and I'm having a blast making it!"

Lawrence is notoriously absent from social media and rarely comments on stories involving her personal life. A representative for Fox 2000 reportedly told TMZ, which also reported that Hollywood honcho Harvey Weinstein was involved in the fight, that Lawrence was screaming on the set but it was a part of her method acting strategy for the film.

Russell has yet to comment on the rumored drama.

Joy will be shown Christmas Day and Lawrence will be joined by Bradley Cooper (for the 4th time), Robert De Niro, Edgar Ramirez, Isabella Rosellini, Diane Ladd, Virginia Madsen and Elisabeth Rohm.

Before this Joy, the part 2 of the highly anticipated Hunger Games trilogy will come to an end with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and will be shown on November 20, 2015.
