Jennifer Lawrence has been an outspoken opponent of social media in the past, but even she couldn't resist going online to set the record straight about recent media reports. 

On Friday Page Six's Richard Johnson reported that the actress "had a meltdown" while filming Joy in Boston on Tuesday. Joy is her third film with director David O. Russell, with whom she worked on Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. A source told Johnson that Russell and his leading lady were caught arguing on the film's set.

"He was screaming at her," the source said. "She was screaming at him. It was loud."

Though Russell does have a reputation for having a temper, a publicist for the film dismissed the dispute. 

 “There was no fight," the publicist explained to Johnson. "David is very passionate. He yells lines back at actors. He gets right in the scene with them. This scene was a big argument. Jennifer had a crying baby in her arms. There was a lot of screaming and yelling.”  

Lawrence herself took to her official Facebook page to play down the rumors.

In other words, things are cool. Maybe tempers flared, but it's all part of the process. Just because the film's called Joy doesn't mean it's going to be all fun and games.
