Liam Hemsworth made Jennifer Lawrence’s breath a water cooler discussion this weekend after telling Jimmy Fallon that kissing her was “uncomfortable” due to her garlic and/or tuna breath (an anecdote the actress did not exactly appreciate being made public)!
“Thank you for reminding me that I’m mad at Liam – it made news everywhere. Where is he?” Jennifer told Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson when asked about eating the notoriously breath-destroying foods prior to make-out scenes, at the “Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1.”
The actress clarified the breath situation – she didn’t deliberately attempt to make Liam’s lip-locks unpleasant.
“I was never like, ‘Hey Liam, I just ate tuna and garlic on purpose!'” she explained. “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. Is it worse?!”
J.Law confessed there are actors for whom she will brush her teeth, but Liam 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,” she laughed. “[For] Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, yeah, I’ll brush my teeth. I’ll pop a mint.”
When Liam and Josh joined our interview, Shaun outted Jennifer’s discriminatory brushing habits.
“[That’s] one of the most awful things I’ve ever heard. One of the most awful things I’ve heard you say,” joked Liam, when told J.Law keeps it fresh for Bradley and Christian. “I’m thinking about going home now. Oh my God, this gets worse and worse!”
Added Josh, “I believe that. I believe she wouldn’t brush for us.”
Liam eventually admitted that he didn’t brush his teeth for Jennifer either.
“You know what? Look, if I was kissing Christian Bale I probably would have brushed my teeth too. With you, it’s like, ‘Eh. Whatever,'” he told Jennifer.
“Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” hits theaters on November 21.
