Jennifer Lawrence snapped like a dry twig on the red carpet Wednesday night.

While being photographed (and screamed at) by noisy photographers at the New York premiere of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," the 23-year-old actress suddenly lost her cool, according to E! News.

Standing with co-stars Jena Malone and Elizabeth Banks, Lawrence reportedly clenched her hands into fists and threw her arms into the air repeatedly. She then began screaming back at the photographers, though it's not entirely clear what she was saying.

Maybe she just realized she's some sort of movie star now.

It wasn't clear if she was really freaking, or just making fun of the situation. But if she was having a mini-meltdown, it wouldn't be surprising. During her appearance on "The Late Show With David Letterman," Lawrence said she'd canceled various talk-show visits so she could go to the hospital for a suspected ulcer after suffering from weeks of stomach pains. According to E!, doctors ruled out an ulcer but haven't come to a clear conclusion as to why the Oscar-winner is in pain.

Lawrence told Letterman it might just be phantom pains related to how incredibly tired she is. Not only is she currently promoting "Catching Fire," she's also filming the next two movies in the franchise, and getting ready to start the promotional tour for her next film, "American Hustle."
