Jennifer Lawrence's friendship with Amy Schumer might be the one getting all the attention of late, but the Oscar-winner also counts another A-lister among her circle of BFFs.

Actress Anne Hathaway has taken to social media to hit back at those criticising J-Law for her behaviour at this year's Golden Globes.

Jennifer came under fire after telling a journalist to put his phone away while he interviewed her in the Globes press room, immediately sparking a reaction online.

Some said Jen's response was justified – the journalist was apparently snapping pictures while interviewing her – while others blasted her as downright rude.

Anne is firmly in Jen's camp, and said as much in an open letter on Facebook this week.

"Dear the Internet," she wrote.

"It's become pretty clear that the Jennifer Lawrence 'scolding' was taken out of context and that she was dryly joking with a journalist who was indeed using his phone to take photos of her.

"Let's not continue the sad but common practice of building people – especially women – up just to viciously tear them down when we perceive them to have misstepped. 

"Jennifer is a beautiful, talented, wildly successful, popular, FOUR TIME OSCAR NOMINATED young woman. Please let us not punish her for these things.

"Sincerely, a J-Law fan #‎supportstrongwomen #‎imwithher #‎whycantwegiveloveonemorechance."

Though she's generally quite private online, this isn't the first time in recent weeks that Anne's shared something personal on her social media accounts.

Two weeks ago the pregnant star took to Instagram to beat the paparazzi to the first "Anne's baby bump" shot, after spotting photographers tailing her during her New Year's beach holiday.

"Just now while I was at the beach I noticed I was being photographed," she wrote alongside a snap of her in a bikini. 

"I figure if this kind of photo is going to be out in the world it should at least be an image that makes me happy."

Kudos to Anne.

Jennifer Lawrence may have wowed in a red Dior gown at last night's Golden Globes, but her behaviour throughout the night didn't get quite the same level of praise.

The actress, who scooped the Best Actress In A Musical Or Comedy award for her role in Joy, publicly hit out at a reporter for using his phone in the Press Room.

Interrupting the reporter midway through his question, Jennifer said, "You can’t just live your life behind your phone bro. You can’t do that, you’ve gotta live in the now."

When the interviewer, who didn't appear to have English as his first language, tried again to ask how Jennifer felt about her chances for the Oscars, she interrupted once more to say, "We're at the Golden Globes, if you put your phone down you would no that."

Cue nervous laughter from the assembled press – and a fair few angry tweets:

Another reporter stepped in to defend the actress though, saying she was well within her rights to complain:

It didn't seem to be Jen's night in terms of pleasing the press, however. 

Earlier in the night, the actress' oh-so awkward interaction with Katy Perry during an E! interview on the red carpet had also raised eyebrows for some viewers:

We doubt Jennifer lost too much sleep over the criticism though – she was no doubt too busy celebrating her huge win.

Taylor Swift's famous #GirlSquad is definitely the power crew of 2015.

Its members span careers (models, singers, actresses, writers), countries (England, USA, New Zealand) and of course boyfriends (Calvin Harris, Jack Antonoff and now Zayn Malik).

But after Jennifer Lawrence formed something of a female celeb triple threat with Emma Stone and Adele earlier this week, we're wondering if Taylor might have something to worry about.

Could J-Law and her crew really overtake Tay's Squad? Let's examine the evidence.

Without further ado, here's a rundown of Taylor and Jen's BFF situation.

Jen's Squad

Amy Schumer
​Jennifer and Amy revealed back in August that they were writing a screenplay together. What's more, they apparently talk every day, with Jen calling Amy "the coolest chick ever."

 

Emma Stone
Okay, Emma and Taylor have hung out a few times too, but there's something about the Emma-and-Jen combo that is giving us serious friendship goals.

 

Adele
She's a beautiful singer and she also happens to be downright hilarious. We reckon Jen is on board with Adele's no-bullsh*t attitude, too.

 

Emma Watson
"Jennifer Lawrence, I love you so," wrote Emma after reading the actress's essay about the gender pay gap. And just look at them there, sharing a face-palm moment:

 

Taylor's Squad

Selena Gomez
Taylor and Selena have been besties for years, and have gotten through break-ups, new relationships, and some serious career drama together. They're in this for the long haul.

 

Karlie Kloss
​Taylor calls the former Victoria's Secret model "a little ray of light". Admirably, Karlie's even okay with being a third wheel to Taylor and Calvin Harris.

 

Gigi Hadid
​Gigi showed the ultimate BFF allegiance earlier this week when she dissed Taylor's ex Harry Styles on the red carpet.

 

Lena Dunham 
This pair first connected via Twitter in 2012. But Lena admits, "Long before she was my friend, she was my friend in my head."

So who wins out?

Well, Taylor certainly takes the lead in terms of numbers – Lorde, Cara Delevingne, Ellie Goulding, Lily Aldridge also all count themselves as her pals – but we reckon Jennifer Lawrence wins in terms of sheer hilarity.

Adele AND Emma Stone? At one table? C'mon, people.

The final instalment of the Hunger Games franchise hits cinemas this week, which we're sad about for many, many reasons.

Yes, that means we'll finally say goodbye to Katniss, Gale and Peeta, but more upsettingly we'll also have to bid farewell to the ultimate friendship trio that is Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.

The three stars have been making red carpet appearances (and giving GIF-worthy interviews) together since 2012, but after this week they'll go their separate ways.

Chatting on Jimmy Kimmel this week, Liam shared a snap of the time he was forced to carry J-Law's Valentino purse on the Wall of China because she wasn't bothered anymore "which is… very Jen." Just look at him there:

Liam's throwback snap got us thinking about other times the trio were just the most perfect pals….

1. That time Jen struggled to choose between the two lads

 

2. And when Liam didn't even give out about J-Law's awful 'impression' of him

 

3. When Josh got some serious face-strokage during an interview

 

4. The time J-Law spilled a load of mints and Liam's face said it all

 

5. Any red carpet group hug

 

6. Although, let's face it, Liam was a bit of a third wheel sometimes…

 

7. Because we all know Jen and Josh have a bit of a *thing* for one another

 

8. In fact, Jen even revealed it was Josh who inspired her to keep going to auditions
Yup, Jen says as a kid she was getting nowhere with acting and her mum suggested leaving New York to move back to Kentucky.

"But I was really determined to not give up on acting, and I saw you [Josh] in a newspaper as a boy from Kentucky who was making it in Hollywood. And I took it to my mom, and I was like, Look, he can do this. I can do this, too."

 

9. But at the end of the day, this friendship is all about the (platonic) threesome

#Goals.

She regularly shuns Hollywood stereotypes – and says she'd never diet for a movie role.

But the intense on-set demands of The Hunger Games means that Jennifer Lawrence is currently rocking a super-streamlined look.

In Berlin yesterday as part of a promotional tour for Mockingjay Part 2, the 25-year-old actress was looking gorgeous in a pretty patterned tea-dress teamed with €1,100 Christian Louboutin ankle boots.

Jen is also still sporting platinum blonde locks – cut short into a choppy bob style.

Earlier this year, Ms Lawrence said that the constant pressure to look good and remain super-slim for movies really only applies to those actors who are desperate for parts, or to those who are up-and-coming in the industry. 

"It’s more about the struggle for actors and actresses who have not made it to a certain place," she said. "There’s a lot of pressure."

Jennifer also quoted a friend who had told her: "All of the main movie stars aren’t very underweight," – a statement to which she replied: "Yeah, because once you get to a certain place, people will hire you.

"They just want you to be in the movie, so they don’t care."

We've secretly had our hearts set on a Jen-and-Nick reunion since the former couple began work together on the latest X-Men instalment, but it seems it's time to put that dream to rest.

Jennifer and Nicholas, who dated for almost three years before splitting in 2014, had a dinner date last week that ended in disaster, according to one eyewitness. The pair were spotted getting some food together after their appearance at Comic Con, but the low-key meal soon turned into an all out argument.

"Jen was clearly upset with the topic of conversation," the source told Star magazine. "She angrily threw her hands up in the air as she yelled at Nick. Next thing you know, he starts screaming too. It was quite a heated argument."

Hunger Games star Jennifer reportedly walked out on her ex, leaving him alone in the San Diego eatery. Awks.

The tense situation has no doubt been made all the more stressful considering J-Law and Nicholas have to spend huge amounts of time together on the set of X-Men in Montreal, Canada.

The upcoming X-Men: Apocalpyse, which Jennifer has confirmed will be her last film for the franchise, focuses a lot on the relationship between the former couple's characters, Mystique and Beast.

Reports earlier this year suggested that a lovestruck Nick was "determined" to win his ex back during filming, but it doesn't look like things have gone to plan. With Jennifer still rumoured to be dating Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, Nicholas might need to look elsewhere for love…

Katniss Everdeen is back, and she is ready for battle.

The final instalment of the Hunger Games series, Mockingjay – Part 2, doesn't hit cinema screens until November, but the brand new film posters already have us very excited. Our favourite sees Jennifer Lawrence dressed to kill in an all-red suit with armour and arrows, sitting on President Snow's iconic white throne.

The poster was tweeted last night from the official Mockingjay – Part 2 account, with the caption, "Imagine Tomorrow. #Unite." A slogan at the bottom of the poster reads, "The fire will burn forever," no doubt a reference to Katniss' Girl On Fire costume in the first film.

Other cast posters show Jennifer, Liam Hemsworth and more in striking red warpaint with captions like "Panem Unite," "Husbands Unite" and "Soldiers Unite."

Intense or what?

This is not the only film franchise that Jennifer is wrapping up over the next twelve months. Back in March the actress confirmed that the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse, due for release in May 2016, would be her last X-Men film.

The movie is currently being filmed in Montreal, with Jennifer's ex Nicholas Hoult also on set, which we're sure has made for a few awkward moments:

We wonder what Chris Martin had to say about this!

It's been over a year since Jennifer Lawrence split from her X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult after three years together, but a new photo suggests they are as comfortable together as ever. 

The couple first met on the set of X-Men: First Class back in 2011, the first film in which they appeared as love interests Mystique and Beast.

Jennifer announced earlier this year that she was quitting the famous film franchise, but her contract still obligates her to complete work on the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse alongside her ex.

Now, the first picture of the couple on set together has emerged, and they are looking very happy indeed to be in one another's company.

Film director Bryan Singer took to Instagram last night to share this selfie of himself, J-Law and Nicholas smiling together with the caption, "Back with the #kidsinthehall #jenniferlawrence #mystique #nicholashoult #beast #Xmen #XMenApocalypse"

Jennifer's fresh-faced look suggested filming had yet to begin for the day – Mystique's blue skin might not photograph quite so well!

Last year a source close to Jennifer revealed that the actress was anxious about working with Nicholas again, especially considering the new film is set to focus a lot on the relationship between their two characters.

"It’s come at a difficult time and [Jennifer’s] worried she may get confused if she starts talking to Nick again," the insider reportedly told Heat magazine.

We reckon Chris will be making a lot of "surprise" visits to the set…

After being left devastated back in August when private nude images were leaked from her iCloud account, Jennifer Lawrence has no doubt been vigilant about her personal privacy.

The actress was one of around 100 celebrities affected by a scandal known as "The Fappening" which began when hackers published intimate nude photos online after illegally obtaining them through the victims' iCloud accounts. Though many celebs were quick to deny the photos of them were real, Jennifer's rep was one of the few who did confirm their authenticity.

The actress has since spoken about out the hacking, saying, "It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting.”

In what must have been a difficult decision, Jennifer has now taken part in her first ever nude photoshoot for Vanity Fair magazine, giving a proper two fingers up to the hackers who invaded her privacy. 

In the image released on Vanity Fair's Instagram, the actress poses seductively with a boa constrictor draped across her body:

Gorgeous! The image was captioned, "Girl Meets Boa: #JenniferLawrence, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier for Vanity Fair. Pick up the March 2015 issue for the full Spotlight."

It turns out the photos were actually taken in late July of last year, just a month before the hacking scandal emerged, but we can understand why both Jennifer and Vanity Fair would wait until now to publish them.

The photo was inspired by the 1981 Vogue portrait of Nastassja Kinski, shot by legendary photographer Richard Avedon.

Speaking about the modern revamp of the daring image, Vanity Fair's style director Jessica Diehl said that Jen was the perfect choice for the shoot. "Jennifer has the perfect combination of strength, sexuality and humor, and, above all, tomboy to pull this off," she said. We agree!

Though she looks cool as a cucumber in the photo, Vanity Fair did note that the actress became "uncomfortable when the snake took a fancy to her neck." Eh, we don't blame her…

Ever since Jennifer Lawrence's split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, the rumour mill has been going into overdrive about who her next romantic interest will be.

Just a couple of weeks ago, a source close to the star claimed that she had re-kindled things with her ex, Nicholas Hoult.

Now though, an even MORE exciting piece of news has emerged. The actress is apparently getting closer to none other than her Hunger Games co-star Liam Hemsworth!

Could Katniss have finally fallen for Gale?

An insider has opened up to Heat magazine about the rumoured romance, saying that Jennifer and Liam have "always had insane chemistry, but they've never been single at the same time before."

The pair have grown closer over the few months, according to the source. "Jen and Liam have been friends for years, and she's always confided in him about the drama in her love life," the source claimed. "She's really leaned on him during all the drama with Chris."

If that little nugget wasn't interesting enough, it turns out Liam recently sent Jen a pretty adorable gift – a giant stuffed koala bear with a note reading, "Hold out for the perfect man." D'aaaaw!

Despite the cute pressie, we do find it a little hard to believe that Jen and Liam might be an item, especially after the actor once described kissing her on-set as "awkward" and "uncomfortable."

Hopefully their real-life smooches wouldn't be quite so stressful!
