Jennifer Lawrence started crying when she saw a spider while filming 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'.

The Oscar-winning star has a mortal fear of the eight-legged bugs, and was severely freaked out when she came face-to-face with them while shooting in the Hawaiian jungle.

She said: ''Everybody told me there were no spiders, so when I saw three, I started crying. Jungles are not easy when you're afraid of everything.

''I think I am a legitimate alcoholic. No, what's it called? An Arachnophobic.''

Jennifer, 23, is already filming the third part in the franchise, 'Mockingjay', but admits she'd like to slow her career down a little.

She added: ''I would like to slow it down. You don't want more than one or two movies out a year; people get sick of you.''

Despite wanting to slow down, the star isn't planning on taking any time off just yet.

She added to the US edition of OK! magazine: ''I think youth and caffeine have kept me going until now. To unwind? I do nothing other than bad TV and a couch.''
