British actor Nicholas Hoult flirted with danger by having alcoholic spirit sambuca lit in his mouth.

The star, who is dating The Hunger Games beauty Jennifer Lawrence, pulled off the extreme stunt at the Burgundy Lion bar in Montreal after filming on X-Men: Days of Future Past had finished.

In footage below, Hoult can be seen holding the liquid in his mouth while his co-star James McAvoy uses a cigarette lighter to set it on fire. Once the flames are out, Hoult swallows the drink and winces at the taste before celebrating his party trick.

Flaming sambuca shots are traditionally put in a glass and drunk once the flames have gone out.
