Actor Emma Stone admits she was once jealous of her close friend Jennifer Lawrence and feared she would never work again because the “Hunger Games” actress was so “talented”.
“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.’
“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 the idea up front,” Lawrence told Vanity Fair magazine.
“We both really do love each other and care about each other as people, beyond being actors. 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,” she added.
And the 26-year-old actress also praised the 28-year-old star for being so “normal and lovely”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
She said: “I love my job. I don’t know what I would be without acting. 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.”
Meanwhile, Lawrence and Stone have a good friendship with songstress Adele and the group recently enjoyed a night out on the town.
