Yesterday, Amy Schumer Instagrammed some vacation photos that had people wagging their tongues. She managed to nab the elusive Jennifer Lawrence for a girls’ adventure, and the two form the base of a “squad” to covet. That’s the thing about social media and celebrities. They’re all having a ball posting photos of themselves with other celebrities. Forming alliances is the thing to do. I don’t blame Amy for posting and tweeting these photos. Whenever the tiniest celebrity throws attention in my direction, this girl starts humblebragging too. It’s an addiction.
These photos may not accurately represent a full-on vacation, but Amy, JLaw, and their crew had a blast. They floated on a raft and formed a human pyramid. Jennifer took her new friend out for a wild jet-ski ride. Amy dealt clever captions like “binders full of women,” and they did a human pyramid. The more I see of Jennifer’s bikini body, the more skeptical her claims of eating everything sound. She’s young though. Give her a decade, and her interview tone about food may change.
Here’s the question of the day: Would you rather hang with Schumer and Lawrence or Taylor Swift and her rotating league of besties?

These two are both obnoxious as hell. I would’ve rather drowned than have to spend a vacation with them.
Also, they kind of look related…
hahaha you made me laugh.
hahahaha, le snark! 🙂
Omg! Best comment ever
I was going to say mean things, then I realized it’s just because I’m not rich or easily liked by the masses. So. Yay. Cool girls on vacay.
I’ll join you in the drowning! And Taylor Swift is worse! I can’t think of many celebrities I would want to vacation with.
Amy and Jen no contest…and add Rebel to that too. Although Jen is friends with Taylor and Lorde as well.
Anyways they are new friends (see SDCC) and mutual fans of each other…I imagine hanging out with them would be hysterical.
And Jen is 24 I don’t doubt she eats everything and looks like that. I have zero issues doing the same thing and we are the same age
I can imagine how nasty the comments are going to be so I’m going to say that they look like they are happy and having an amazing time.
The only real currency is friendship. No matter where you live or what freaky challenges are happening…support and unconditional love make everything alright. I don’t begrudge anyone for trying to build solid friendships.
You guys age doesn’t play as much a factor as you all want to think. I’m not saying it doesn’t, but it’s not the only reason she’s fitter than the masses. It’s possible she doesn’t watch what she eats, but that she naturally doesn’t eat all that much and maintains a very active lifestyle because she has too. But there’s also no doubt in my mind that she or her handlers are in fact careful about what she eats.
Her mother, Karen Lawrence, is naturally slender and athletic.
considering the stories of what she eats on set and most recently comiccon…she’s not all that mindful of what she eats
Considering it’s part of her brand to be the girl who eats it makes sense that those few stories are pointed out and that she talks about it as well. It is in fact her “schtick”. I guess it annoys me because it’s sending an ignorant message when it comes to weight loss, working out, and nutrition. I have stated that there’s a possibility that she doesn’t have to be completely mindful of what she eats because she leads an active lifestyle and she listens to her body to maintain. Ie she eats but in moderation and her body is probably just use to moderation. She could very well be eating Doritos and pizza but at the end of the day the calories she’s expending is less or equal to the calories she’s putting in. She probably works out a ton so she can do that. But I don’t buy that she’s not watching her diet or it’s just because she’s young. When it comes to her career this girl knows the game and plays it well. She knows her body is important to her career as an actress (unfortunately) and she will prioritize it and watch out for it.
I do not think naturally slender is a thing. Behaviorally possibly, genetically not so much. Otherwise an athlete wouldn’t be able to manipulate their body to improve their performance. Your naturally athletic nature doesn’t show if you don’t put in the work for it.
ok I’m just saying it must be a massive strategy if everyone she works with knows how much she eats. And sure she expends energy (filming two action films will do that) but she still is not a VS model watching what she eats. Case in point when she filmed SLP she was slightly bigger than she was when she was filming THG. I’m not saying she doesn’t work out but she isn’t a health nut either
And I’m not sure how “naturally thin” isn’t a thing. I had a friend who weighed 100 pounds soaking wet and she could out eat any guy I knew in college (and she did all the time). And the most activity she did was fencing twice a week.
Fine she’s not as obsessive as a VS model but the aesthetic they go for is different so they have to tune their diet and exercise differently for it. Which means they probably eat less and do more cardio to achieve the look required for their field. Visible, bulging muscles are bad for them, they want less body fat with a lean toned figure. There’s a genetic component to how one’s body looks at a certain weight, meaning fat places itself in different places for different people. But in terms of maintaining a figure very few people are anomalies to weight loss, gain, or maintenance.
And no your anecdote of your thin friend doesn’t substantiate the idea that she is “naturally thin.” Naturally thin implies that there is a genetic component to her being able to maintain the figure she has. It’s not so much genetics as it is habits. If it were solely genetic then it would be impossible for overweight people to lose weight and underweight to gain it. Did you follow and track her fitness activity and diet 24/7? Did you know her BMR, TDEE, and her daily intake? No you didn’t. So while she may have eaten more than the guys when you saw her, doesn’t mean she ate all that much in other areas. Maybe she is an outlier, but for some bizarre reason everyone wants to treat every case like that as an outlier. They’re outliers for a reason guys. So again no. Naturally thin is not a thing. Behaviorally she probably was just very active and naturally didn’t eat as many calories as she expended. It’s behavioral not genetic.
But genetic is a component : metabolism is linked to age and heredity.
It doesn’t mean it is impossible to loose weight for people with low metaolism. It’s harder.
Same goes with people with a high metabolism and gaining weight
Jennifer is great friends with Rebel as well. They were neighbours for awhile. They all should get togetehr more for vacations and do a comedy movie asap.
I MIGHT believe Jennifer if it weren’t for the fact that she’s been gradually losing weight ever since she got famous. She was never big to begin with, but she’s your standard Hollywood starlet now and so I call bull on her eating stories. She’s probably scared to even smell food at this point.
That would not even be a contest. I would rather hang with Schumer and Lawrence. Fun. Stress free. No judging. LOL!
Ditto Sarah, it may not be a popular opinion but I love both Jlaw and Schumer. Seems like they would be hysterical and really fun. Taylor and her squad would mean girl me til I was in the fetal position. I’m not one of them
@Slacker: Oh, it is definitely the popular opinion…with the exception of a few on CB, both Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are well liked.
Now, Goop, Kristen Stewart, Shailene Woodley on the other hand…not so much. Pretty much universally loathed.
I’m with you, this vacation looked like a blast
JLaw has such an awesome figure! I’m sure she works out but I truly believe she enjoys food. Also she’s just blessed genetically. That waist to hip ratio is so sexy and feminine and no amount of dieting will give you that.
She does work out. She said she has to so she can eat whatever she wants. She doesn’t have the model type of body so even being young if doesn’t work out she will gain weight. I think she looks perfect and super healthy.
How is that even a question? Hanging out with Taylor involves posing for 5 hours to get the most perfect Instagram shot. Another 5 hours complimenting Taylor on how clever and unique she is.
Hanging out with Jen and Amy, while I’m not huge fans of either, would provide hours of laughing and eating. I think we have a winner.
This has PR written all over it.
The only peolple out of all of these celebs I would like to hang out with are Lorde, Haim and Emma Stone, so I’d choose Taylor’s squad.
@Franca, Lorde and J-Law are very close – see the Met Gala. And Lawrence and Stone are also good friends. So if I’m not sure Team Taylor is your best option…except for Haim, I suppose.
I find JLaw incredibly unlikable, so even though I find Taylor annoying, still team Taylor.
But aren’t Taylor and Jennifer also close?
They are both represented by the same agency publicists ID PR (Liz Mahoney & Bryna Rifkin for JL / Carrie Byalick for AS)
Friendly PR LoL
ID has a bunch of famous client just like any PR firm. Do you see all of them going on vacation together? No. No matter the topic there is always someone calling PR for everything. They obviously like each other and are having a blast together. Leave at that.
They probably do get along but it probably doesn’t hurt a 34 years old to be seen with a young friend ten years her junior. She’d rather be paired with Jennifer in the eyes of public and casting directors than say Tina and Amy. What’s weird is that Taylor pulls the same stunt but with teens.
this looks like fun and I’d love to hang out with them. Jennifer body looks so good she have been working out for xmen. also Jennifer has the best famous friends she got Adele, Rebel wilson, aziz ansari, Emma stone and now amy, they all seem like they love to have a good time.
All these ‘friendships’ seem so orchestrated for attention .. i’m like, who cares?
I wouldn’t want to hang with either set. Jlaw/Amy would wreck my head after a while and Taylor and her band of supermodels would make me feel judged and less than.
Besides … none of these girls would be friends with us peasants. Lets not fool ourselves!
I wanna go hang with Tilda in Scotland though!
Neither groups. I would die from alcohol poisoning from trying to numb the annoying around me. Not to mention, I think I’m the wrong skin tone for both “squads”.
Lol can I join your group because I feel the same way on both accounts.
@Marty – +10000 (And I don’t even drink!)
I’d want to go to a dinner with Taylor and her friends, but get drunk and party with Lawrence and Schumer.
i think it takes a certain type of person to enjoy hanging out with taylors posse and its not me. seems like it would take a lot of effort to be perfectly styled and camera ready all the time, plus i wouldnt fit with the model types.
This! I know Jlaw and Amy might annoy some people but if i have ot choose there is no doubt which group is more welcoming and free to have fun without passing judments.
Jennifer Lawrence seems like her schtick would get old super quick. But I like Amy Schumer. But I would rather snoop around Taylor’s RI house. Decisions, decisions.
ETA: binders of women might be the best caption of all time.
Celebs used to fake relationships to gain attention now they are faking friendships.
Before I’m called too cynical, I get that they these celebs run in the same circles but I don’t buy the show off of the supposed perfect circle of friends.
Can’t we all be friends? I think partying with ALL of them would be so much fun. A nice eclectic group of gals 🙂
They are both represented by the same publicists agency – ID PR (Liz Mahoney & Bryna Rifkin for JL / Carrie Byalick for AS)
Friendly PR LoL
Well, kudoes to that PR firm! In both cases, they’re earning their commission. I don’t mean to put down either J-Law or Schumer – they are both genuinely talented, unlike 90% of the celebs who appear on this site. But their PR over the last few years has been a model of how to sell a client.
Having been in the trade myself for a while (at a much lower level than ID), I doubt this is an 100% PR exercise. I suspect that Lawrence in particular has reached the stage where she doesn’t have to do anything she doesn’t want to do, and a few photos with Schumer won’t make much difference to her image either way. But if the two really want to hang out, then phone calls can always be made, and a few holiday snaps can be useful.
Jennifer and Amy are actually great, nice and talent people which helps any PR job. It’s much harder to sell clients who are brats, unprofessional, are sulking all the time. Hollywood is full of this. Talent or not, rich people who has a giant ego and are hard to control. This is not the case with those two. Jlaw case is even more special considering everything she accomplished so early on her life. Most of people would lose really fast. Amy is on top right now too. They don’t need PR. God forbid two girls are just having fun together.
like half Hollywood. Nice try
No, I’m not claiming to be Hollywood undercover! I did PR for a while for a firm in London specialising in political work, working for a boss who did spinning for politicos caught up in scandals, and I had friends working for firms who handled actors and TV personalities. So, I’ve no especial expertise, and I’m no longer in that world – but I still have a passing interest in how Hollywood stuff is presented…
I remember doing all girl vacations in my late teens and early twenties and what a blast we always had. So yes I can believe they had a great time too!
Jlaw just might eat everything, but instead of eating a pizza whole, just 2 slices.
When I did WW that was often enough to fill the need for grease and cheese and I definitely wasn’t food deprived.
Yup. When I watched my calorie intake I lost a ton of weight and I was still able to squeeze in a slice of pizza or two, chips, cake, and ice cream on a regular basis. Did I eat a full carton or a whole pizza? No, lmao. I ate a few slices, one scoop about a few times a week. All within my calorie goals. When I don’t watch, I’m able to maintain because it’s partly a conscious choice to not overeat and my body starts feeling full and I’m active. And I’ve been eating junk for like two weeks. Her definition of eating everything and everyone else’s might be different. But I do in fact think her team and she herself are careful about it.
They absolutely should play sisters in a movie. I honestly thought amy pascal was in one of these pictures. That would have been amazing. Is this like a work retreat?
that’s a great idea….!
They almost worked together in Ghostbuster. Hopefully they will work something in the future.
I’ve never been able to grasp why some people really have a beef about J-Law. She’s never come across to me as overbearing or obnoxious. She’s comfortable in her own skin, which I like – too many girls are trained to shut up and be decorous.
Cloying. Great that they’re friends or whatever but the pr part of it is annoying. Now we’re going to have a rival squad drama for months.
Doubful. Taylor will probably want to get into that group really fast or better saying getting them into her group. Remember, she is all about woman supporting each other not rivalry. After all the Nicki drama she is needing a friendly squad news. She is probably trying to get all of them together as we speak.
Amy and Jen. They have a jet ski.
I wouldn’t want to be with “friends” who felt the need to show me off on social media. Specially if I try to be a private person and not share stuff about life outside of work. So neither Amy or Taylor I guess.
JLaw is a private person when she wants .
She complained about the lack of private life because of the social media ( a story about the release of a video in a garden ) and in same time, she was outed by a journalist of a British tabloid in a French TV doc on the paps/tabloids recently about the pics of her teen years ( it’s her RP who gives the pics) to show how down to earth she was
Surely she’s entitled to regulate what private photos of her are published? I don’t see why she’s being hypocritical in okaying some pictures and not others – being famous shouldn’t have to mean that you have to choose between everything being out there or nothing at all.
There’s a world of difference in being photographed 24/7 by strangers versus voluntarily posting pictures with people who received your permission first. Not saying that JLaw doesn’t have her fair share of flaws, but I don’t find her particularly hypocritical in regards to this issue.
My comment was not meant to judge Jennifer, this thing where people feel it’s ok to take photos of you and then put on social media isn’t even just about celebs. I had friends who did that and I had to stop it bc I had no interest in having people knowing where I was and doing what. But I’m a bit old school about the use of social media.
Maybe im too introverted but it seems weird going on such a vacation with people who you only know because both of you are famous. “We are buddys now, fellow celeb”
I think you have a total normal reaction in my opinion
Totally agree. That’s just… weird.
is that kristen bell making up the other top part of the pyramid?
team Neither. probably the most annoying vacation ever.
Both are obnoxious and both like to be the centre of attention amongst people/group of friends. They seem to be tiring.
You mean they’re like all funny people – they tell jokes to get attention?! Hardly a crime, I would have thought…
That’s a common label people put to celebrities who are really funny and outspoken specially on talk shows. It’s stupid and unfair because you never heard of anything pointing that either of them are obnoxious people. Actually it’s always the opposite and those feedback don’t come just from fans and co-stars. It comes from people who work at the industry. Women who are on top just can’t win. There is always people who complain about them. No matter what.
Of course they like to be the center of attention – why the hell else would they be in entertainment? That may not be your cup of tea, but it’s not necessarily a negative. Plenty of people have high intensity, largely extroverted personalities. As long as they recognize situations where they need to tone it down or turn it off, it’s not a problem.
And that’s Ms. Schumer jumping right over the shark. It was bound to happen eventually, but can’t say I’m not disappointed.
I think Tay Tay and her squadlettes would make me stand in front of them all while they circled my chub spots with pink sharpies and measured my pore depth with pink protractors whilst writing my stats in a Strawberry Shortcake Trapper Keeper. I am afraid of them all. AT least with Jen and Amy you know you could drink alot. So that’s my pick. #alldadrinks
I don’t know why it pisses me off so much but why do celebrities have to be so extra when posing with their friends? Rihanna is the same, always taking over pictures with friends, it’s like you get your photo taken and attention all the time- leave some for your friends!
They look like they had a blast. I wanna go jet-skiing too. *Pouts about being stuck at my desk at work.*
*SPLASH, Throws huge glass of water in I Choose Me’s face for virtual jet skiing adventure at desk.*
I drink your water Kiddo. I drink it right up. 😀
Team Lawrence/Schumer. I really don’t like Swift and her Swift-ettes…mean girls one and all.
I could hang with Lawrence and Schumer and have a few drinks, eat whatever the hell I’d want without being judged…hell, it looks like it would be a non judgemental environment all together!.
