It was emotional...
Entertainmentwise reports that Amy Adams has spoek about the kiss she shares with Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle, which she calls "emotional". The film also stars Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner and was directed by David O. Russell. Adams plays Sydney Prosser, mistress of mobster Irving Rosenfeld (Bale). The movie is based on the FBI ABSCAM operation of the late 1970s. It will be released in select theaters on Friday before expanding on December 20.
Lawrence plays Bale's Long Island housewife. When asked about the kiss, Adams said: Well, I feel like Jennifer really made that contribution. I came up with the idea, but she executed it in a way that felt driven purely from character. It didn't just feel like a moment where two girls are going to kiss onscreen - it felt emotional. And the laugh she gives after? That was genius."
Lawrence meanwhile, spoke about a scene in which she dances. She added: "We were going to go over the script before we started shooting and [David] said he had a vision of Rosalyn wearing yellow cleaning gloves and running through the entire house singing, 'Live and Let Die.' I said, 'That sounds incredible… how's it going to make sense?' I'm so stupid with these and like, 'I'll dance, I'll sing, whatever.' She's so angry and she's at this point where she's been lied to for so long and left out of everything, and she's getting to this point in this marriage that she's been fighting for so long, that she's been imprisoning this man for so many years in this marriage and she's finally ready to let it die. So, I think that was this great, crazy moment. I threw my neck out, actually."
