Actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer have become fast friends, and it all started with a fangirl email.

In a new interview with the New York Times, Lawrence explained, “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.’ We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”

Clearly, texting turned into fun outings, like jet skiing and dancing onstage with Billy Joel!

Now, they're taking their relationship to the next level and partnering on a screenplay. “Amy and I are writing a movie together! We play sisters, and we’re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now.”

She added, “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.”

Aside from gushing over Amy, Jennifer also opened up about the night she met Kris Jenner and posted the infamous photos of them in bed together.

“I would love to talk about this,” she said. “My two best friends planned a surprise birthday with a big surprise within the surprise. So I’m there, and people start singing ‘Happy Birthday.’ Kris Jenner comes out holding my cake. It was the closest I’ve ever come to losing consciousness. I had no idea! I’d never met her before, but we’ve always watched “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” And then Kris Jenner and I sang “Build Me Up Buttercup” on karaoke and took that picture.”

While J.Law’s life sounds amazing, she also struggles with fame and anxiety, admitting she once Googled, “Jennifer Lawrence Ugly.”

When asked how she handles anxiety, she said with a laugh, “I have a prescription.”

“The Hunger Games” star added, “I find a certain peace by thinking of me in public as sort of an avatar self. You out there can have the avatar me. I can keep me. And I just try to acknowledge that this scrutiny is stressful, and that anyone would find it stressful. So I’ve got to try to let it go, and try to be myself, and focus on important things, like picking up dog poop.”

True to form, the candid starlet added, “I have a little mutt, and we just moved into a new house. She thinks that the hallway with the guest bedrooms is a lost land where I never go and that she can use as her own personal bathroom.”
