Jennifer Lawrence has an apparent foot fetish, and she has outed it for all the world to see. Her target: comedy sweetheart Amy Schumer.
The pair were recently at a Billy Joel concert together when they decided to get on stage and dance barefoot on the Piano Man’s piano. As Joel crooned “Uptown Girl,” Amy climbed on top of his piano first and as her leg was dangling off, new bestie JLaw took it upon herself to attack.
It seems like kind of an odd thing to do until you start looking at the statistics regarding foot fetishes in this country.
San Francisco’s Seth Prosterman, who has a PhD and works as a clinical sexologist, told Shape in a 2014 piece that feet are a “major erogenous zone.”
Dr. Erica Goodstone, a practicing sex therapist and marriage counselor, cites a pair of studies to further solidify this point.
“In August 2006, AOL evaluated search terms used by their subscribers that included the word ‘fetish.’ At that time, the most commonly searched ‘fetish’ was for ‘feet.’ Another study in 2007 at the University of Bologna examined 381 Internet discussions about fetishes which had involved about 5,000 participants. They found that the greatest number of discussion groups and the greatest number of messages written were focused on body parts. And interestingly, the body parts most mentioned were feet and toes. In one discussion group, some people quoted statistics as high as 20-40%.”
While Goodstone stopped short of endorsing that commonality, the point is that a lot more people are apparently into this sort of thing than you probably realize, and this Jennifer Lawrence foot fetish thing should come as no surprise.
Here’s the full thing on display through Instagram. It looks like the ladies, who are currently working on a script together, had a lot of fun.
If you’ve been following the pair’s adventures lately, then you know that it’s JLaw, who is totally “pursuing” Schumer, which she revealed while gushing to the press.
“Amy and I were creatively made for each other,” Lawrence said in a recent report. “We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages [of their script-in-progress]. And we crack up. I’m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago. We’ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing Trainwreck.”
After seeing Schumer’s hit comedy, Lawrence revealed that she emailed Schumer and plainly told her, “I’m in love with you.” The relationship has grown from there. Thankfully, Schumer didn’t seem too put-off by the whole Jennifer Lawrence foot fetish thing.
