Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence bonded over having the same stalker and it was the start of one adorable friendship

Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence’s friendship is the friendship we need to get in on.

Emma and Jennifer became friends in the most unconventional way, and it made for one of Hollywood’s best relationships.


It all started when Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games) gave Jennifer’s number to Emma. “She texted me that she got my number from Woody,” Lawrence revealed. “I replied, Fuck off!'”

In a joint video interview with W Magazine, the gal pals revealed that they basically met through text and didn’t meet each other until a year later.

During their 365 days of texting, they often chatted about their mutual stalker. “We both had the same stalker. His name was John the Orchestra Guy. He would accidentally text us,” Lawrence recalled. “He wasn’t really a stalker. He’s just this guy who has a lot of people’s numbers. He must’ve worked at a studio,” Stone clarified. “And he texts and he says, ‘Hey, Alex.’ Or he makes up a name. ‘I’m running late on my way to the sound stage. Can you warm up the orchestra for me? Can you text me back and let me know you got this? John.'”

Having the same stalker was the first thing Emma and Jennifer had in common, and he almost intercepted their first hangout sesh.

“So then we were finally going to meet. She sends me her address, I drive over, and on the way over I’m like ‘Oh my God, what if this is John the Orchestra Guy,'” Jennifer recalled. “We had never spoken on the phone we just trusted it was each other,” Emma added, while also thinking about how she was wondering if John the Orchestra Guy would show up at her door. Then Jennifer called Emma just to make sure it was Emma Stone and a couple of years later the two are doing a joint interview while playing with paper elephants.


I guess that’s one way to start a friendship in Hollywood, and I’m honestly jealous I wasn’t on either end of this. If you’re Emma Stone or Jennifer Lawrence and you’re reading this, let’s be friends and became a true girl squad. Pick me!
