Jennifer Lawrence needed four back-up copies of her floor-length gown for American Hustle, the film’s costume designer Michael Wilkinson has revealed.
The dress originally needed duplicates because Jennifer’s character douses herself in champagne, but it was the Hunger Games star’s snacking which posed the real threat.
“I’m kind of glad we did,” said Michael on creating the duplicates. “Because Jennifer Lawrence is a very… let’s say raw and intuitive young lady, and she’s not against eating Doritos and snack food in her costume.”
The 23-year-old actress has repeatedly been open about her refusal to lose weight for parts. “I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life," she said.
