Los Angeles - Jennifer Lawrence has shared her secret hiccups cure.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay actress insists gulping water while she lowers her arms from above her head helps her get rid of hiccups.

She said: "The only thing that ever works for getting rid of hiccups for me is when I drink water and raise my arms over my head and lower them very slowly."

Jennifer, 23, did just that in front of a crowd of reporters at the Vanity Fair Cannes Film Festival party.

Her co-star Josh Hutcherson gave her the water as Jennifer slowly lowered her arms and after a minute, true to her word, she'd managed to beat it.

The blonde beauty recently revealed she's afraid fans will "get sick" of her after her big screen success in recent years thanks to roles in the 'Hunger Games' and X-Men franchises.

She said: "Nobody can stay beloved forever. People are going to get sick of me."

However, the American Hustle actress admits she most worries about her behaviour away from the camera because she thinks she is often "annoying" in public.

Jennifer added: "I'm way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I'm really hyper, most likely because I've been drinking, and I can't not photo-bomb somebody if it's a good opportunity."

    Can't believe that I just read this nonsense.

    It works. Equally effective is to lower your head below your hips and drink water in an 'upside down' fashion. (No, you won't snort water through your nose.)
