This might come as little shock to all Jennifer Lawrence fans, but apparently the actress is also a spectacular kisser.

Amy Adams, Lawrence's co-star in the upcoming movie "American Hustle," shares a kiss with the 23-year-old blonde on screen. ExtraTv caught up with Adams yesterday (Dec. 13) and got to hear first hand what that was like.

"She does a great job at it," Adams, 39, said. "She has very soft lips. She's a really awesome woman."

In the movie, Adams and Lawrence play the mistress and the wife, respectively, of a con man played by Christian Bale.

"Everyone's chemistry is so electric in this, and even the friendship chemistry between Christian and Jeremy [Renner]'s character, the volatile energy between Jennifer and I, it almost borderlines on intimacy because it's just so immediate, so there," she added.

Adams also spoke of the soon-to-be famous kiss last weekend, at a press conference for the movie. "It didn't just feel like a moment where two girls are going to kiss onscreen -- it felt emotional," she said. "And the laugh [Lawrence] gives after? That was genius."

Lawrence's "Hunger Games" co-star, Josh Hutcherson, also mentioned the actress' smooching abilities last month. "For me, she's like a best friend and a sister, so it's a little bit incestuous," Hutcherson said, "But she's a great kisser -- so, yup, the bar is high!"
