Emma Stone: I was jealous of Jennifer Lawrence
Emma Stone used to be jealous of Jennifer Lawrence.
The ‘Birdman’ star admits she used to compare herself to ‘The Hunger Games’ actress but now realises they are completely different.
She confessed: "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. 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."
And the 26-year-old actress also praised the 28-year-old star for being so "normal and lovely".
Jennifer added to Vanity Fair magazine: "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, Jennifer and Emma have a good friendship with songstress Adele and the group recently enjoyed a night out on the town.
A source said at the time: "Adele met Jennifer at a showbiz bash and the pair had been texting for ages to get something in the diary. Emma is a friend of Jennifer’s and a huge Adele fan so the trio planned a night out together when they were all in New York.
"Adele loved having a proper girlie night out and they all enjoyed wine and had a giggle. They’re all similar ages so it was nice for Adele to let her hair down and enjoy a rare night away from mummy duty."
