Amy Schumer told Jennifer Lawrence she would die alone after a recent break-up

Sound Amy, sound.

IF THEIR ANECDOTES are anything to go by, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer appear to share a friendship reminiscent of the one you have with your oldest and closest friend.

In other words, it floats upon a sea of scorn and is maintained by mutual mockery.

Elaborating on this during a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Jennifer revealed that in the aftermath of her break-up with Darren Aronofsky, Amy had some harsh words for her.

“When Darren and I first broke up, I told her, and I was really sad,” Jennifer told the host.

The next day I got a bouquet of flowers delivered and I said, ‘What is this?’ I bring the bouquet in and there was a note that said, ‘I’m so sorry to hear that you’re going to die alone. Love, Amy.’

It does work both ways, however, with both actresses agreeing they seek humour in the most tragic of times.

Indeed, it was Jennifer’s dark sense of humour which helped shed some perspective on an incident which greatly impacted Amy back in 2015.

During a screening of her film, Trainwreck, at a Louisiana theatre, a gunman opened fire on the audience, killing two women – something which Amy blamed on herself.

Speaking to Lena Dunham in the aftermath of the tragedy, the actress revealed that Jennifer was the first person who managed to permeate her sense of grief and profound shock.

But you know that is actually when I felt the closest to Jennifer Lawrence because that day she texted me, ‘Its your fault’. And in times like that only jokes make you feel a little better.

Jennifer and Amy have co-written a comedy, and are currently in discussions with potential directors.
