Gemma Chan just discovered the secret to fighting hunger pains during a lengthy awards show: sneak in snacks!

Thanks to some handy pockets in her gorgeous pink Valentino gown, the "Crazy Rich Asians" star managed to hide some tasty treats in her dress at last night's Oscars, giving us one more reason to adore her.

During a post-show interview with "Entertainment Tonight," the 36-year-old admitted to storing cookies in her pocket during the show, and even took the package out to offer cold, hard proof.

Her reasoning? "It's a long ceremony ... you don't get dinner," Chan explained.

Looks like her voluminous dress came in handy, too, because the actress also stowed rice cakes away in her other pocket to nosh on throughout the ceremony.

Chan later shared the moment on Twitter, captioning her post "The hunger is real" complete with a cookie emoji.

Women everywhere agree that pockets are pretty awesome, but Chan's totally relatable red carpet moment gives new meaning to the term "fashion meets function." And after hearing this story, we've decided the actress is basically just like us when we sneak snacks into the movie theater.
