This unusual — but totally practical — decision on Bell’s part was revealed in a tweet posted shortly before the Oscars pre-show began:
When you see me on the red carpet of the oscars tonight, just know…there’s a burrito in my clutch. pic.twitter.com/WwXQtMq10A

Considering that Bell arrived at the Oscars wearing a white, designer dress, she hopefully packed the rest of her bag with napkins. The burrito is a messy, messy food.
When the rest of the celebrities are going hungry three hours into the awards show, however, Bell’s choice will likely seem the best.
