Jennifer Lawrence has reportedly made an effort to salvage her friendship with fellow actress Emma Stone after her successful career – and relationship – got in the way.
According to editors at Look magazine, the Oscar-winning actress, who recently reportedly split from 48-year-old Mother! director Darren Aronofsky, has allegedly been so tied up with her successful career and her man, that she neglected her friendships with La La Land star Emma and comic pal Amy Schumer.
But now, realising her past mistakes, the 27-year-old is said to be on a mission to reconnect with her A-list girlfriends.
“Jen shot to the top of the fame ladder really quickly,” an insider explained to Look. “It meant there was a little bit of distance between her and friends like Emma Stone and Amy Schumer. It caused a few issues.
“It was never intentional, but Jen was so caught up in her work and being successful, that naturally she had less time to invest in friends and hanging out. She’s starting to realise that needs to be put right.”
The pair, who were first introduced by Jennifer’s The Hunger Games co-star Woody Harrelson, have started hanging out more, they were recently pictured together larking on the red carpet at the Governors Awards in Los Angeles, and the actress is desperately trying to find the right balance between work, her friendships and her relationships.
“She’s eager to repair any damage done, especially with former BFF Emma, and they’ve started hanging out more, which they’re both happy about,” added the source.
Jennifer was dating director Darren for over a year before their recent split, which came after Mother!, in which she had a lead role, was critically panned and was a box office flop.
However, she is reportedly hopeful that she will still be in the running during the upcoming awards season.
“She’s going after another Oscar for the film Mother! And wants Hollywood’s support,” said the insider. “She’s really making an effort to socialise more and catch up with friends – yes – they might vote for her, but the real reason in that it means a lot to be respected and well-liked in this industry.”
