VF describes Lawrence as “brave and nonchalant” during the shoot until “…the snake took a fancy to her neck. Then the shoot was over and Mr. Boa went back into his box.” (And then they shipped it on a plane, and you know the rest, Mr. Jackson.)
Meanwhile, over on Bazaar, Rihanna is also posing with a dangerous animal, although she has considerably more clothes on, which is to say: She’s wearing them.
