Apparently, according to Liam Hemsworth, the actress often appeared on set, for kissing scenes, after eating smelly food like garlic and tuna. “She’s one of my best friends, I love her.

Although the actor initially hated kissing Lawrence while collaborating on the movie, he eventually matched her weirdness and played along.
