“Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with “American Hustle” stars Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale, and Bradley Cooper as they promoted the upcoming film.
Christian talked about gaining over 40 pounds for the role, saying that he was no longer Batman, but “Fatman,” before returning to his normal weight after filming. Jennifer talked about her annoyance at how quickly Christian was able to drop the pounds.
Bradley Cooper chatted about the inspiration behind his wild hairdo in the movie, and whether he would show up to the awards shows this season in his full “American Hustle” getup.
J. Law tells MTV News normally wears bras, but had to forgo them for David O. Russell’s 1970s-era film.
“American Hustle,” David O. Russell’s latest directorial effort following last year’s critically acclaimed “Silver Linings Playbook,” is notable not only for its script and performances from the likes of Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, but also for its bananas aesthetic. Set in New York and New Jersey of the 1970s, the cast is decked out in the full finery of the era, which means they’re often short on supportive undergarments.
MTV News’ Josh Horowitz caught up with the film’s stars this weekend in NYC, where Lawrence made it known that she was aware of how memorable her costumes would turn out to be.
“I normally wear bras,” Lawrence deadpanned.
Asked if she liked being done up in big hair and ’70s garb, the Oscar winner was similarly dry: “I wouldn’t say that it’s ever exciting to see yourself without a bra in a dress that’s three sizes too small for you.”
And since the costumes were period-appropriate, she said, she couldn’t make character rationalizations that would have her donning an underwire. “Exciting, I don’t know,” she said of going braless. “It was freeing.”
Of course, since it doesn’t count as a conversation with Lawrence unless she gets some goofs in, she ribbed Horowitz when he admitted that in his notes while watching the film, he “wrote ‘hair’ and I wrote ‘boobs’.”
“That was just you zoning out,” the star teased Horowitz. “And I bet it said ‘boobies,’ not even ‘boobs.’ ”
“American Hustle,” starring Amy Adams, Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, hits theaters Dec. 20.
Jennifer Lawrence (Supporting Actress Nominee for American Hustle): “Wow. Such great news. Congratulations to the other nominees and to my fellow cast members for the film’s ensemble nomination.”

Watch a new Jennifer’s interview about her new movie “American Hustle”:
Jennifer Lawrence is one of the biggest names in the industry right now, but that doesn’t stop the butterflies in her stomach.
Regardless of being a big shot, J. Law tells E! News that she continues to get anxious for everything she does in her career and that having fame does nothing to change that.
“No, I’m always just very nervous,” she tells E! News at the American Hustle junket. “I never feel like, ‘I’ve got this.’ I’m always very nervous and aware of how quickly people can hate you and that scares me. I never feel like I’m on top of it or I know what I’m doing…so, no. I never get a big head, I just get more and more anxious.”
But her costar Christian Bale thinks otherwise.
“I don’t believe that it scares her,” Bale tells E! News of Lawrence being afraid. “I think she seems to comes alive; she seems to live in front of interviews and everything.” He continues, “It scares when you understand that you can be misunderstood so easily. I don’t mind myself being misunderstood, but I hate it when people are asking me questions about other people and they misunderstand what I’m saying, it just fills me with guilt.”
But if Bale was to say anything snarky about Lawrence, it would be to her face. “She loves nothing more than a good fight,” he tells us. “She’s up for it. She’s a tough cookie. And she talks like a sailor and so I enjoy those conversations with her.”

Bryan Singer has confirmed that there will be another X-Men film.
The director made the surprising announcement on Twitter but didn’t give any other details about the upcoming threequel.
The writer and director took to the social network, writing: “#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!”
#Xmen #Apocalypse 2016!

Though Bleeding Cool reports the film will follow directly on from X-Men: Days of Future Past.
“There’s a clear narrative thread that will string the two pictures together, and the character of Apocalypse is a good part of how this will work.” it reported.
“Several cast members of Days of Future Past will be wanted back for Apocalypse, including members of both the ‘past’ and ‘present’ timelines.
“I can’t find out who has signed or even who might have entered negotiations, but I do know who is on the shopping list and, in short, it’s everybody.
“Or, to be more precise, it’s a direct continuation, a next chapter that picks up the status quo at the end of Days and carries on developing it.”
* X-Men: Days of Future Past is released on 22 May 2014
