JLaw has some serious bow skills as Katniss in the Hunger Games.

But when she challenged Jimmy Fallon to an axe throwing contest, her hunting skills were no where to be seen.

Appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to discuss her new thriller, Mother!, the Hollywood actress couldn't resist thrusting the somewhat dangerous game on her host.

Expecting Jennifer to be a natural, viewers were shocked to see her fail to hit the target all three times.

Chatshow host Jimmy however, really stepped up to the plate, impaling the board twice.

Luckily, 27-year-old Jen never takes herself too seriously and was able to laugh his victory off.

Though the X-Men star tied back her hair, swapped her strappy heels for steel toed boots and wore protective glasses, she was swinging her axe in a gorgeous black sequined jumpsuit.

While it looked super sparkly, we can't help but think it must have been restrictive.
