As a self-confessed “girls’ girl”, Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence has an enviable coterie of girlfriends who all live a stone’s throw from her Beverly Hills mansion. Here, she tells why her three besties have shaped the woman she’s become.
On actress Emma Stone: “She’s my best friend; the love of my life. We’re exact opposites so we help each other. We laugh our heads off together, but there are certain things we’d handle completely differently. If we put our heads together, we can form the perfect solution.”
On actress/director Jodie Foster: “When I was 19, Jodie directed me in The Beaver and I remember realising that while she was obviously very famous, she was a completely normal human. I was thinking, ‘If this [acting] works out and I become successful, I hope I can end up like that.’ She’s been an incredible mentor to me: I go over to her house, I ask her for advice, she’ll check on me, she’s always there for me. She’s taught me so much.”
On actress Cameron Diaz: “She’s been this real spiritual guide to me; she’s a really brilliant woman. She also taught me how to cook!”
