What’s the opposite of the perfect storm? Dumb luck, fluke, serendipity? Whatever it’s called, it’s amazing when it happens and a moment such as this may have just occurred. Today, in a interview with the New York Times, Jennifer Lawrence revealed that she and Amy Schumer are writing a screen play together.
Lawrence was originally being interviewed to discuss the November 20 release of the latest Hunger Games movie, however, as the conversation progressed she let it slip that her and Amy Schumer have been working on a screenplay together.
The two’s friendship originated from an email Miss Lawrence sent Amy after watching Trainwreck. She said her email went something along the lines of: ‘I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I’m in love with you.” From there Jennifer stated, “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”
Early this summer the friendship made headlines when an Instagram photo of them was posted having fun with a group on friends jet skiing and making human pyramids.
They instantly hit it off when hanging out. During the New York Times interview Jennifer said, “Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages. And we crack up. I’m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago. We’ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing ‘Trainwreck.'”
Mid interview JLaw paused to text her new BFF to update her. She said, “I wrote, ‘I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that O.K.?’ And Amy wrote back, ‘That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!'”
