Jennifer Lawrence & Liam Hemsworth's hot encounter at Cannes

Jennifer Lawrence and her Hunger Games: Catching Fire co-star Liam Hemsworth were left hot and bothered at the Cannes Film Festival over the weekend (18May13) when a tray of candles fell on them at a party.

The pair is in Cannes to promote the upcoming second installment of the Hunger Games series, and the young stars attended a bash in honor of the film, where, according to reports, a huge column holding a plate of lit candles toppled over and almost hit Jennifer Lawrence on the head.

A source tells JustJared.com, "(They) were sitting on a sofa in the VIP section of the party when all of a sudden, an 8-foot column with a platter of candles on top fell on top of them. They both jumped up when it happened and thankfully no one was hurt. Liam and Jennifer both seemed pretty calm about it and laughed it off."
