“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.”

However, it was not the only issue. The costume designer also shared that Amy Adams’ vintage Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress, which they borrowed from the vintage shop, also had a wine stain when they received it. But the dress was just so amazing to let go of. Along with Adams, the filmmaker David O. Russell also loved the dress and decided to keep it in the movie despite its stain.

American Hustle is available on Prime Video.
