Schumer’s summer blockbuster actually convinced Lawrence that the two would be friends. “I watched Trainwreck and I was like, ‘Yep, we’re made for each other,’ ” she says.

“I reached out and everything just happened so quickly,” Lawrence continued. “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.”

Asked if their will be any room for her Hunger Games costars, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, Lawrence said, “No, no, no, no, no …There’s not really boys in it.”
