Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone make one adorable pair of best friends. But have you ever wondered how they became besties? It turns out they have one really creepy thing in common: They both had the same stalker. OK, he wasn’t actually a stalker. He was just John the Orchestra Guy. Just know that this is one seriously atypical way to connect with a future friend.
In their cover story for W magazine, Lawrence and Stone told the story of how their friendship began, and how it all started with John the Orchestra Guy.
“Jennifer Lawrence and I both had the same stalker, John the Orchestra Guy,” Stone said. “He would text us both and say things like, ‘I’m running late on my way to the soundstage. Can you warm up the orchestra for me? Text me back and let me know you got this.’ He wasn’t really a stalker. He must have worked at a studio or something, because he had a lot of people’s numbers.”
It’s a little weird this random guy was texting A-listers and asking them to do his job on the soundstage. But still, if it gave Lawrence and Stone something to bond over, maybe it wasn’t all bad.
“Jen and I texted for a year before we actually met,” Stone continued. “As she was driving to my house, she thought, ‘Oh, my God, what if it’s John the Orchestra Guy?’ And I thought, ‘Oh, my God, what if it’s John the Orchestra Guy?’ So Jen calls me and says, ‘I just want to make sure you’re not John the Orchestra Guy.’ I wasn’t. And we met. It’s our adorable love story.”
From that unlikely beginning, a perfect BFF-ship. Too cute.
