We’re pretty sure we The Secret-ed this into reality.
Jennifer Lawrence revealed on Wednesday that she and Amy Schumer are writing a comedy together with plans to star in it. “We play sisters,” Lawrence told The New York Times. “We’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us.”
How did this epic writing partnership come to be? “I emailed her after I saw Trainwreck and said, ‘I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I’m in love with you,’” Lawrence recalled.
She added, “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting. We really hit it off, to say the least.”
To say the least. In July, Schumer invited Lawrence on an annual girls trip she takes with her friends from high school and posted pictures of the two on a WaveRunner, simultaneously delighting us and giving us severe #squad envy.
"She's the coolest chick you'll ever meet, and she's beautiful," Amy gushed about her new friend on The Daily Show, before laughing, "In all the pictures we took of us, I look like her coach. I look like I’m telling her to take a knee.”
Lawrence said they have written about 100 pages of their script so far. “Amy and I were creatively made for each other," she explained. "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.”

And of course, no Jennifer Lawrence interview would be complete without a charming anecdote. During the interview, Lawrence apparently grabbed her phone and told the reporter, “Let me just text Amy and tell her that I told you.”
Instantly, she got a response from Amy and laughed. “I wrote, ‘I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that OK?’” she said. “Amy wrote back, ‘That you’re gay? Totally! It’s exciting!’”
