Amy Adams says she came up with concept of kissing Jennifer Lawrence in ?American Hustle?

While?Jennifer Lawrence?made the first move in kissing?Amy Adams?in “American Hustle,” it wasn’t her idea for their characters to lock lips.

“My character is really strong and her character is kind of crazy, and I was thinking, ‘Why would I let her leave?'” Adams explained on “Chelsea Lately” Wednesday about coming up with the idea to have Lawrence smooch her.

“I really want to tell her something and I thought, ‘What’s the craziest thing she could have done to me?'” she recalled. “I thought she should kiss me.”

The steamy scene lived up to its hype as the two Hollywood beauties had their intimate moment. Now, the Golden Globe nominee for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture takes credit as the mastermind behind the memorable kiss.

“Jen was open,” she said about Lawrence’s acceptance of her concept. “She’s open to anything.”

The 39-year-old actress plays the girlfriend of the Academy Award-winning actress’ character’s husband played by Christian Bale. She previously described the experience of lip-locking with one of the biggest movie stars of today.

“She does a great job at it! She has very soft lips,”?she told “Extra.”?”She’s a really awesome woman. Everyone’s chemistry is so electric in this.”

Adams added, “The volatile energy between Jennifer and I, it almost borders on intimacy because it’s so immediate, and so there and then she kisses me.”

But the appreciation of the scene isn’t one-sided, as Lawrence, 23, also enjoyed it.
