Amy Schumer opens up about her new pal J-Law and we can’t deal

Taylor Swift might have been crowned "captain of the #GirlSquad" by this month's Vanity Fair, but we reckon she has some serious competition in the form of Amy Schumer.

The comedian took a break from the promotional circuit for her new film Trainwreck last week to head to the Hamptons with a gang of her high school friends… and Jennifer Lawrence. NBD.

Instagram went into meltdown when Amy casually posted a photo of herself and J-Law riding a jetski with no explanation, but she finally set the record straight during an appearance on the Daily Show last night. "She's the coolest chick you'll ever meet. She's beautiful," said Amy of her new BFF, who she bumped into during her trip away and soon became firm pals with.

Amy also shared some never-seen-before shots of her and American Hustle star Jennifer, like this (blurry) holiday snap:

"So we go to the Hamptons, and Jennifer and I have become friends. I was like, 'Oh, we're going on a boat tour tomorrow. You should come.' It was kind of a hypothetical," Amy told Jon Stewart, "And she was like, 'I think I'm coming!'"

But while Amy might have taken the whole thing in her stride, her friends weren't quite so chill. "I filmed a video actually of my friends telling them that Jennifer Lawrence is going to be there," the 34-year-old admitted. "They're like nurses and teachers… and they were all like, screaming."

As well as the aforementioned jetski trip, Oscar winner Jennifer also joined Amy and her friends for a human pyramid picture:

Although we think the pair look like the perfect match, Amy said she was surprised by the reaction to her Instagram posts. "It was a complete viral thing. It's my picture next to Jennifer Lawrence's—like the last person you want to be next to…I look like her coach in all the pictures," she said. "I look like I'm telling her to take a knee, like, 'Listen, Jen!'"

Hilarious. Could we love the Amy/Jen pairing any more?!
