Just when you thought Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t be more adorably candid, she and Taylor Swift had a spontaneous personal moment on the red carpet at Sunday night’s (Jan. 12) Golden Globe Awards.
During E! Entertainment’s pre-show telecast, Swift was mid-interview with Ryan Seacrest when Lawrence came up and gave her a huge hug.
“I was gonna come and push you down the stairs,” Lawrence joked. “I was like, ‘She’ll crack up. She would really love that.’”
Instead, the two celebs talked about their mutual adoration for each other.
First, Lawrence said she loved Swift’s performance on the CMA Awards in November so much, she texted her right away.
“Oh, my God,” Lawrence said. “I freaked out over the CMAs. I sent her a text message that was, like, six inches long.”
Then Swift echoed Lawrence’s sentiments, and said she’d felt the same after watching her in American Hustle.. The role netted Lawrence a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actress in a drama.
“I was doing the same thing,” Swift told her. “I wanted so badly to send a novel text message.”
It was a heartfelt moment between two nominees. And awards show hadn’t even started yet.
Lawrence won the Golden Globe, although Swift was edged out for best original song by U2 and Danger Mouse for “Ordinary Love” from the film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Swift was nominated for “Sweeter Than Fiction,” a song she wrote for One Chance.
Swift told Seacrest was honored to be nominated, although the awards show also provided an opportunity to hang out with two of her close friends.
“I wrote this song with Jack Antonoff, who’s one of my best friends, who’s dating my other best friend Lena [Dunham],” she said. “So we’re all here, and we’re all so excited that all three of us are nominated.”
The song, Swift said, was a nice change of pace from writing about her own life.
“It’s taking a bit of break from looking into my own life and my own experience and trying to process that and looking at someone else’s story,” she said. “And the movie that we got to write the song for is … about this love story of these two people, and this guy is an opera singer, and he wants to make his dream come true. And his wife so unconditionally loves him through the process of the ups and downs. And I was just very inspired by that.”
