Actress Jena Malone accidentally flashed at a hotel employee while filming a nude scene for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

The Donnie Darko actress stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth in the action sequel, which has already proved to be a box office smash, but she had an embarrassing run-in during filming.

Malone was left red-faced when she accidentally bared all to a hotel employee while shooting a nude scene in a hotel elevator.

She tells U.S. chat show Live! with Kelly & Michael, "We were actually shooting in a real hotel, and a real elevator, so they couldn't really shut down the entire hotel. It's like 49 floors, a glass elevator, everybody can see in - it's kind of a crazy thing.

"I think at take two, I'm bare-boned, and I'm about to leave the elevator. And the doors open and there's some guy that works at the hotel carrying a coffee cup holder and this mouth is just agape. And I'm staring at him trying to be in character, and I just fall out of frame laughing. I couldn't take it."
