Jennifer Lawrence doesn't use social media very often, so when she does, you know it's got to be about something important.

The 24-year-old actress posted a message to Facebook on Friday in an effort to clear up the rumor that she and director David O. Russell had a heated argument on the set of their new movie, "Joy." TMZ first reported the alleged "showdown," claiming Lawrence and Russell got into a "loud argument" on Tuesday in Boston while filming a scene. A rep for the film's studio, Fox 2000, shot down the report, insisting that although there was some screaming going down on set, it was all just part of a scene -- aka Russell was getting Lawrence all amped up for a shot.

Now, Lawrence is backing that statement:

Hey guys!

It's Jen! I know I don't go on here a lot because I can barely work email but there's been a terrible rumor going around the last 24 hours so I wanted to clear it up.

David O. Russell is one of my closest friends and we have an amazing collaborative working relationship. I adore this man and he does not deserve this tabloid malarkey. This movie is going great and I'm having a blast making it!

So there you have it, straight from J.Law herself: No bad blood here!
