Amy Adams sat down with “Chelsea Lately” for a drink and a chat, where she told host Chelsea Handler that she was behind one major moment in the film.

Explaining the behind-the-scenes decision to have Jennifer Lawrence’s character kiss her in one dramatic scene, Adams says that she came up with the idea.

“I mean, I could come up with a funny answer which I probably should, but really my character is really strong and her character is kind of crazy, and I was thinking, ‘Why would I let her leave?’” she said (via E!). “Because I really want to tell her something. And I thought, ‘What’s the craziest thing she could have done to me?’ And I thought she should kiss me.”

The film has been a great critical and commercial success, with both Adams and Lawrence receiving Golden Globe nods for their performances in the film.
