A source said: "Jennifer had just downed a handful of her daily vitamins, swallowing them with water, but one got caught in her throat. Suddenly she started gagging, gasping, pointing at her throat as her face turned bright red. Everyone around her froze, not knowing what to do. But when a crew person screamed, 'Help,' Woody quickly ran up behind Jennifer and gave her a swift, hard slap on the back. When that didn't help, he wrapped his powerful arms just under her chest, gave two quick, strong squeezes, and the vitamin popped out of her mouth."
The blonde beauty thanked her co-star for saving her life and admitted she was worried she was going to die.
A source told the National Enquirer that she was overheard saying: "You literally just saved my life. I really couldn't breathe... I really thought I was gonna die right there."

"It was obviously very rough for all of us," Lawrence tells USA TODAY. "He was a friend. He was an amazing actor, an iconic actor. He was someone I really looked up to.""We shut down for a day to give people time to deal with the sudden shock of it all. And to try and sort of figure things out a little bit," says Lawrence."We as a cast and crew definitely honored him," says Lawrence. "We gathered everyone together and had a big moment for him. We still think about him every day. It's hard not to imagine him being here.""It's something so sudden, so shocking," Lawrence adds.Lawrence says Hoffman was "mostly finished" with his work on the Mockingjay set."There was very, very little that was left," says Lawrence. "Even if (Hoffman) had a number of days left, most of those moments were appearances in other scenes. Most of his dialogue was done."Clearly, working with the loss of the key character will lead to some continued difficulties."We're still figuring some of that out," says Lawrence.
