Kristen Stewart and Jennifer Lawrence often get pitted against each other in the endless tabloid competition between Twilight and Hunger Games, as well being two of the highest paid young actresses in Hollywood today. However, both Kristen and Jennifer have admitted to being friends in real life despite their rumored enmity, and Kristen has even gone on record calling Jennifer very ‘cool’.
Both Kristen and Jennifer have had massively different career paths already, even though it started out on the same track. Kristen has gone from being in a massively successful [but critically panned] franchise to barely headlining even one mediocre franchise [Snow White and the Huntsman], and dropping out of independent films [Cali]. Jennifer, on the other hand, has just won an Oscar for a David O. Russell movie, will be re-teaming up with him two more times, has a working partnership with Hollywood bigwig Harvey Weinstein and the Weinstein company, and is also set to continue to star in two highly acclaimed commercial franchises [X-Men and Hunger Games].
Despite all this, Kristen is said to have been ectstatic that Jennifer won the Oscar on Sunday night, where Kristen watched from her seat in the audience. US Weekly reports, “When they announced Jen's name, Kristen was so happy and cheering for her! She was going crazy in her seat." Kristen and Jennifer were also spotted on the red carpet, where Jennifer was offering sympathy to Kristen for her leg injury and crutches.
While the two might have some healthy competition going on, it really does seem as if they’re friends, something tabloids don’t seem to comprehend exists between actresses in Hollywood.
