Jennifer Lawrence suffered an injury on the set of her Netflix film Don't Look Up on Friday, PEOPLE confirms.

A rep for the actress could not be reached for comment.

The Oscar-winning actress was injured when an explosion was created for a stunt where glass was expected to shatter in the film, according to Page Six. The glass reportedly injured Lawrence's eye.

The film, also starring Leonardo DiCaprio, sees the two play two astronomers who set out on a media tour to warn the public that a meteor will destroy Earth in just six months.

The two actors have frequently been spotted on the Boston set where filming has taken place.

Lawrence was confirmed to star in the movie in February, while DiCaprio's casting was revealed in October.
