Jennifer Lawrence’s mega stardom revolves around one simple conceit: she’s relatable. She may resemble a bloodthirsty piranha in some of her roles and fight to close the gender wage gap in Hollywood, but she’s also the girl who trips and stumbles at the Oscars. She’s obsessed with Beyonce’s Lemonade just like you. She enjoys guilty pleasures like Real Housewives that would seem *above* a Hollywood star like herself.
All this interesting J.Law catnip comes courtesy of Vanity Fair, who featured the 26-year-old actress as their latest cover star. However, all this pales in comparison to one tidbit slipped into the profile: Lawrence and Emma Stone have a very special friendship. They were introduced by mutual co-star Woody Harrelson and it blossomed from there.
“She texted me that she got my number from Woody,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair. “I replied, Fuck off!’ And we’ve been really good friends ever since.”
Following the introduction the two of them sent messages to each other every day for a year. Said Lawrence: “I feel like it was our version of The Notebook—365 texts.”
This isn’t the only high-profile female friendship Lawrence is in. Her relationship with Amy Schumer has long been documented and celebrated and within the profile, Lawrence dispels any rumors the two aren’t talking anymore.
But as Lawrence is wont to do, she kept it real at an October La La Land screening. When discussing Stone’s performance in the film and their similar competitive position in Hollywood, Lawrence told press, “If I wasn’t her biggest fan, I would’ve Tonya Harding’d her in the kneecaps.”
Stone echoed the sentiment of their friendship: “We both really do love each other and care about each other as people, beyond being actors. I support her completely when it comes to work and I feel the same from her, but I know we’d be friends even if we didn’t do the same job.”
