One of the more playful moments in She-Hulk Episode 1 comes when Bruce makes fun of Jennifer for eating Cheetos with chopsticks. Jen reveals it’s a tactic she picked up to avoid getting Cheeto dust on her fingers while munching down the popular snack.
Tatiana Maslany chatted with HeyUGuys and suggested that head writer Jessica Gao came up with the idea. Maslany laughs fondly and says, “She’s smart and enjoys good food.” The actress then admitted the idea may have come from another MCU star. “Someone said there’s a picture of Oscar Issac doing that,” Maslany noted, referring to a viral photo from 2016 of the actor. She went on to suggest that the chopstick schtick might be a meta Easter egg, which she wasn’t privy to at the time of filming.
Moon Knight star Oscar Issac was asked about the hilarious Cheetos Chopsticks photo while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2018. “I’m a cultured gentleman, so I didn’t want to get the powder on my fingers, so I opted for the chopsticks.” Who would have thought that that silly photo moment would turn into a very clever Easter egg in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law.
