They’re two halves of our favourite celebrity friendship, and undoubtedly the Hollywood A-listers we would most like to down gin cocktails with of an evening.

So it pleases us no end to learn that Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence’s friendship began in a way that is reflective of the duo’s comedy prowess: with a brilliantly worded f**k off text.

Lawrence recently described the beginning of her and Stone’s friendship in an interview with Vanity Fair, explaining that she received a message from Stone after their mutual co-star Woody Harrelson gave her her number.

"She texted me that she got my number from Woody," Lawrence said. "I replied, ‘F**k off!' And we've been really good friends ever since."

Following on from their initial texts, the pair continued messaging for over a year, with Lawrence saying, “I feel like it was our version of The Notebook – 365 texts.” 



The 26-year-old Hunger Games star added, “Emma is so normal and lovely."

And the love between the pair certainly goes both ways, with 28-year-old La La Land star Stone gushing about Lawrence in equal measures.

“We both really do love each other and care about each other as people, beyond being actors,” she wrote in an email to the magazine. “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."



Even better, the pair are unbeatable when it comes to supporting each other with their work in the industry, with Stone admitting that she tries not to see Lawrence as competition for acting jobs.

“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**k 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.”

You guys.
