Amy Adams takes credit for her kiss with ''cute'' Jennifer Lawrence in 'American Hustle'.

The talented actresses play feuding wives in the new 70s crime drama - which also stars Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper - and Amy has revealed it was her idea to plant a forceful kiss on her Oscar-winning co-star following a violent argument in one particular scene.

Speaking at a Q&A following a screening of the film on Saturday (23.11.13), she said: ''I don't take credit for a lot of things, but that was my idea. I don't know why ... maybe I just wanted to kiss Jennifer? She's just so cute.''

The disco era film sees Amy and her co-stars clad in colourful '70s garb such as flared pants and shiny shirts, but the 39-year-old star admits her character's plunging necklines didn't go down well with her three-year-old daughter Aviana, whom she shares with fiancé Darren Le Gallo.

She laughed: ''My daughter is three and a half. She looked at the poster and said, 'Why do you show your boobs?' ''

The 'Man of Steel' star will hopefully earn better reviews for her smooching skills than Bradley, 38, did in the last movie he made with stunning Jennifer.

The 23-year-old actress, who reunites with Bradley and 'Silver Linings Playbook' director David O'Russell on 'American Hustle', previously branded her hunky co-star a ''wet kisser''.

Bradley decried: ''After the second take she said, 'You're a wet kisser'. You don't want to hear that. It was not a compliment!''
