Jennifer Lawrence’s Wardrobe Kryptonite: Doritos Cheese Stains!
With such a hectic shooting schedule for “American Hustle,” Jennifer Lawrence had to eat whenever she had a break, and sometimes that meant messing up her costumes.
Costume designer Michael Wilkinson told Vanity Fair he had to make sure he had plenty of extra dresses for the “Hunger Games” gal, as she had a tendency to wipe her hands on her clothes.
"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. So we were glad that we had a couple [backups]."
Wilkinson added, "[Director] David [O Russell] really had it set in his mind that she would be wearing this dress that she just poured herself into. He wanted to see every single lump and bump. There had to be a sense of, 'Is she going to fall out of it?' It had this dangerous feeling to it, which matched her own dangerous mental landscape."
And Frito Lay confirmed that Lawrence’s Doritos dust drama was historically viable. "Back in the seventies that would have been the experience consumers would have had with eating Doritos, so technically, it would have been factually accurate to have that Doritos cheese problem."
