London: Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence started crying when she saw a spider while filming `The Hunger Games: Catching Fire`.

The 23-year-old actress said she has a mortal fear of the eight-legged bugs, and gets severely freaked out when she came face-to-face with them while shooting in the Hawaiian jungle, reported Contactmusic.

"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," she said.

Lawrence said she is already filming the third part in the franchise, `Mockingjay`, but admits she would like to slow her career down a little.

"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."
