Nassau Country, Long Island
The suburban country located on the east of New York City served as the primary shooting location for No Hard Feelings movie. Production team setup their camps in Hempstead and transformed Ted’s Fishing Station located at 143 Bayside Drive into Montauk Dock East.
For those who don’t know, Ted’s Fishing Station is a renowned fishing store bar and boat rental service provider in Long Island. The place has a unique charm that has been perfectly captured by the cinematographers.
The woodmere docks of Lawrence village were used as a base camp in the film and the team also taped some scenes in Greenfield Cemetary located at 650 Nassau Road in Uniondale.
Greenfield Cemetry is a huge cemetry that is covering nearly 158 acres of land. It was used to film the scenes where Jennifer Lawrence visits the cemetry with Percy along with some emotional scenes like in Run Rabbit movie of Sarah Snook.
North Shore Animal League America, Port Washington
During production, the cast and crew members were spotted filming at North Shore Animal League America. It is a pet adoption center based in Port Washington.
The center is known for its beautiful harbor and the thing that made the place film friendly is, it is located just an hour drive from from the main shooting location in Long Island.
Montauk, Suffolk Country
Even though, the film sets in the hamlet of Montauk, only a small portion was done there.
Montauk is a CDP located in the town of East Hamption in Suffolk Country. The town has only a total population of 4,318 as per the latest census that took place in 2020.
Since Maddie works as an Uber driver in Montauk, the shooting team decided to tape some scenes at the original location to make it more relatable for viewers. An important nude scene was done on the beaches of Hamlet.
Is No Hard Feelings based on a true story?
Yes, Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that the raunchy comedy movie is based on a real-life Craiglist ad that inspired Naomi Odenkirk., one of the movie’s producers to make a film on it.
It was about seducing a 19-year-old and Lawrence told to EW that she died laughing while reading the actual scripts. This was the funniest thing she’d ever read and she wanted to make the movie out of it as soon as possible.
However, the character of J Law is purely fictional because nobody responded to the real Craiglist ad that was posted almost five years ago but Jennifer is coming as the savior of the 19-year-old Percy, whose parents want him to grow up and kickstart his sex life.
