Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about her friendship with Emma Stone.
In an interview with Vanity Fair, the “Hunger Games” actress said Woody Harrelson was the reason why she and Stone developed a friendship. Harrelson, who worked with the actresses in different projects, gave Lawrence’s number to Stone. Soon after that, they started to text each other daily.
The “Silver Linings Playbook” actress admitted that early on in their friendship, she was intimidated by Stone because they are part of the same industry.
“She may not even know this but there was definitely a time early on where I was like, ‘OH HEY MY EGO IS GOING NUTS SHE’S SO GREAT AND VIBRANT AND TALENTED I’M SCREWED I’LL NEVER WORK AGAIN GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD,” Lawrence said. “Then I chilled [out] and remembered we’re completely different and there is room for everyone, even if it’s an industry that doesn’t really seem to support that idea up front.”
This is not the first time Lawrence has gushed over a friend. In an essay for Time, Lawrence shared the things she admires about Adele and how their friendship came to be. The actress recalled how she tried to get close to the “Hello” singer at the 2013 Oscars. Lawrence also said that she understands how Adele would like to keep things private, so she only shared how great a mother she is. “Adele is a gift, an international treasure, but she’s also sweet, funny, intelligent and beautiful,” Lawrence said, jokingly adding, “B-tch.”
In November 2015, Lawrence, Adele and Stone were spotted having a girls’ night out in New York, according to E! News. The three had dinner at a Mexican restaurant and appeared to be in high spirits.
Lawrence once described how friendships are important in her life, saying she needs to see her friends at least once a week, otherwise her life would be filled with nothing but work.
