Lawrence, 26, opened up to Vanity Fair about how their BFF status all began: “She texted me that she got my number from Woody [Harrelson]. I replied, ‘F*** off!’ And we’ve been really good friends ever since.” J.Law starred in The Hunger Games with Woody, while Stone worked with him in Zombieland. Apparently, the actresses texted every day for a year after that. “I feel like it was our version of The Notebook — 365 texts,” Lawrence joked.
“We both really do love each other and care about each other as people, beyond being actors,” Stone, 28, told VF via email. “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.”
However, the La La Land star admitted there was a time before they met that she was intimidated by Lawrence. “She may not even know this, but there was definitely a time early on when 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,‘” she wrote. “Then I chilled the f*** 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 the idea up front.”
Lawrence agrees. “I love my job… I don’t know what I would be without acting,” she said. “So if there is someone who loves the same thing, it should bring us closer. But it depends on how that person is, and Emma is so normal and lovely. If I wasn’t her biggest fan, I would’ve Tonya Harding’d her in the kneecaps.”
While J.Law was eager to gush about her pal, she was more reserved when talking about her new boyfriend, director Darren Aronofsky. “He is a visionary,” Lawrence noted
We wonder if Stone has given her stamp of approval yet?
