Jennifer Lawrence on Beating Pal Amy Schumer at the Golden Globes: ‘She’s Gonna Be Fine’

No hard feelings!

Jennifer Lawrence says she was a bit shocked to beat Amy Schumer in the race for best actress in a musical or comedy at Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards. But it won’t dent their friendship one bit.

“She’s gonna be fine,” the Joy star, 25, said of the Trainwreck comedian, 34, in the press room after her win. “It wasn’t a matter of feeling bad, because she’s funny and hilarious and will win many things. I really expected Amy to win, so this was very truly surprising for me. I was just really surprised.”

The pair, who appeared on stage together earlier in the evening to present clips from both movies, were actually planning to dress alike on Sunday.

“Yeah, but then I blew it by talking about it [beforehand],” Lawrence said. “Then if we did it, it would have been expected. So, we just wore our own thing. But I hope you were still satisfied by our presentations.”

It’s no surprise that the two are taking Sunday’s developments in stride. They’ve been writing a movie together, and other Hollywood stars have even been pining to join their squad.

“We’re starting a gang,” Lawrence joked Sunday. “No, you know, it’s a small business. It’s like high school, and we’re all staying at the same hotel. It’s like when you work with people, it’s a tiny pool.”

Lawrence said she was most looking forward to celebrating her win with Joy‘s director, David O. Russell. “I get all his attention because I’m the only cast member here tonight, so it’s like my real dream come true,” she said.

Also, somewhat randomly, she was asked which Real Housewives cast member is her favorite. (She’s a Bravo superfan.)

“My favorite is probably Lisa Vanderpump,” she replied. “My least favorite … I don’t want to have to say, because who knows when you’re going to have to run into these people!”
