In a photo shoot with Vanity Fair magazine, the 24-year-old The Hunger Games beauty doesn't seem bothered to have a strategically placed Colombian red-tailed boa constrictor draped over her. The publication cleverly refers to the image as "Girl Meets Boa."
VF notes that Lawrence did become "uncomfortable when the snake took a fancy to her neck."
The photo, taken by Patrick Demarchelier, is inspired by Richard Avedon's 1981 Vogue portrait of Nastassja Kinski. "Jennifer has the perfect combination of strength, sexuality and humor, and, above all, tomboy to pull this off," Vanity Fair's fashion and style director Jessica Diehl said of their decision to have Lawrence pose for the daring image.
