In a recent interview with Howard Stern, Scarlett Johansson revealed that she doesn’t really hang out with celebrities, except for the odd one-on-one dinner with Woody Allen. For some, it was an innocuous answer, but for those who like to fantasize about Hollywood as a giant play date between the world’s most glamorous cool kids, it was a crushing puncture.
Luckily Brie Larson is here to save the day. While speaking to Vanity Fair for its May cover story, the actress let slip that she just so happens to be a member of the most exclusive group thread on the planet, whose other members are none other than fellow Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone, as well as Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham.
Larson explained the thread was formed when she was in the thick of awards season, during what turned out to be a winning campaign for her performance in Room. “I felt lonely and bad sometimes. I was embarrassed to keep talking about myself,” she admitted.
While most group threads usually devolve into a never-ending stream of cat GIFs and eggplant emojis, Larson credits their group dynamic with saving her life. “I was able to talk with them about everything that was going on in my life, and it was with people who had been through it before and are also hilarious. That support and acceptance was everything. I was home-schooled, so I didn’t have friends that had the same interests as me, and I found it to be absolutely incredible.”
Because we’ll never get invited to join, let’s just imagine what it looks like when the three most famous young actresses in Hollywood text each other:
JEN: Guys, where did you say your Oscars polished?
BRIE: Bahahaha, I haven’t seen mine since Guy O’Seary’s afterparty lol.
JEN: Aww Em. Do you STILL sleep next to him?
EMMA: Any other suggestions?
EMMA: Shut up.
JEN: Yeah Brie shut up. Just because they’re co-stars it doesn’t mean they’re secretly in love with each other.
EMMA: Thank you Jen! You’re always the sensible one ;)
BRIE: Speak for yourselves. I’ve got a date with King Kong tonight.
JEN: You know what they say about gorillas with really big feet, right?
EMMA: They wear big shoes?
JEN: Nope. They have really big dicks.
BRIE: Bye, Felicia!
