Actress Jennifer Lawrence says she will brush her teeth before kissing actors including Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale.
“Thor” star Liam Hemsworth made Lawrence’s breath a point of discussion after telling host Jimmy Fallon that kissing her was “uncomfortable” because of her garlic and tuna breath.
“Thank you for reminding me that I’m mad at Liam, it made news everywhere. Where is he?” Lawrence told accesshollywood.com when asked about eating the breath-destroying foods prior to shooting intimate scenes of “Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1”.
Lawrence, 24, clarified the breath situation and says that she didn’t deliberately attempt to make Hemsworth’s lip-locks unpleasant.
“I was never like, ‘Hey Liam, I just ate tuna and garlic on purpose!’ I just would happen to eat something. I didn’t change the way I was eating for the kissing, which is different than eating something on purpose,” she said.
The actress said there are actors for whom she will brush her teeth, but Hemsworth and “Hunger Games” co-star Josh Hutcherson don’t make the cut.
“I do that when I’m kissing like Christian Bale or like a real (star), not when it’s like Josh and Liam. (For) Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, yeah, I’ll brush my teeth. I’ll pop a mint,” said Lawrence.
