Amy Schumer is one funny lady. She is also good friends with Jennifer Lawrence. In fact, Time reports that Lawrence saw Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck and immediately knew they would be great friends.
“I watched Trainwreck and I was like, ‘Yep, we’re made for each other.’ I reached out and everything just happened so quickly. We both have very similar senses of humor, obviously and aren’t afraid, which is a good and bad thing, because I don’t know what our movie will be rated. And we’re both very blunt. So we’ve gotten through a really strenuous process without ever fighting, because we’re both very straightforward.”
Amy Schumer and JLaw are so tight they even got together and danced on Billy Joel’s piano at a recent concert at Wrigley Field.
The spontaneous dance show was shown across Instagram and Twitter. JLaw was excited to be at the concert with Amy Schumer and other friends

and Instagram photos were everywhere.
As for the movie, Lawrence made the announcement in August that she and Amy Schumer were writing a script together. In the movie, the two play sisters and Amy describes the movie as “funny,” “dirty,” and “real.” According to E! Online Amy Schumer also says Jennifer is a great writer.
“Jennifer is a great writer. She doesn’t play by the rules. She can be out there in a really cool way where you thought that you understood a scene and then she’ll just kind of turn it. She’s great.”
So with all this going on, does the busy Amy Schumer, who recently won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series, have any time off to enjoy the good life? She told E! Online that she has no time for vacations for a while because she’s booked solid, but that when she does get to have one, she’s going to look for a man.
“I’m gonna try to snag myself a man.”
Amy Schumer is one funny lady and she just tells it like it is. When she recently accepted the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence, she went for the “stupid, dumb” comedy as reported by USA Today. First, she joked that the inspiration for the award must have come from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
“I’ll never forget the first time I saw him just running around that chocolate factory. When he got that golden ticket, whose heart didn’t jump out of their chest?”
Then she lowered the tone of the event even further with her next joke.
“Watching the movie inspired my boyfriend at the time to take a trip up my chocolate river.”
She even joked around about how women do themselves up for men and men are simply disgusting.
She had everyone in stitches, including Orlando Bloom and Harrison Ford, whose reaction is totally priceless!
Amy Schumer also managed to photobomb Harrison Ford and Meryl Streep at the same event.

Amy Schumer was also recently awarded the Hollywood Comedy Award for her movie Trainwreck and Selena Gomez had the honor of presenting it to her, according to E! Online.
“I talk about her obsessively. I’ve tweeted her often. I try to impersonate her and it doesn’t really work. I actually just met her so basically what I’m saying is I’m really happy that clearly Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t able to do this tonight because I love you.”
Aside from writing the movie script with JLaw, Amy Schumer is working on the upcoming season of her award-winning show Inside Amy Schumer. The two projects are sure to keep her busy for the next few months. We can only expect more brilliance from this woman, who is truly the Queen of Comedy.
