  • American Hustle's costume designer reveals the moment Jennifer Lawrence ruined her dress with Doritos stains. We've all been there.

    Jennifer Lawrence isn’t one to buckle under the pressure of Hollywood diets, thankfully, and the latest story of her on-set eating habits is sure to bring a smile to your face.

    Having already put her infamous Oscars trip down to cake, J-Law’s secret snack habit appears to have earned her a reputation with the American Hustle wardrobe department.

    Michael Wilkinson, the costume designer behind the Golden Globe-winning film, revealed that Jennifer Lawrence nearly ruined her white dress with yellow Doriots stains. Eek.

    ‘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,’ he explained.

    Luckily the costume department, without realising, anticipated J-Law’s pesky Doritos habit by creating four of the same frock – worn as she confronts Amy Adams’ character in a club scene – before filming. Phew.

    We wonder what food-theme will pop into Jennifer Lawrence’s mind at next month’s Oscars…
