Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone both won Oscars in their twenties, but they still haven’t gotten the hang of hugging.
The actresses ran into each other at Variety’s studio at the Toronto International Film Festival this week and were caught on camera in the midst of a très awkward greeting.
In an Instagram video captured by Variety, Lawrence approaches her Battle of the Sexes pal for a hug. But instead of reaching out to reciprocate, Stone leans back weirdly, almost as if the Mother! star is covered in cooties. Realizing how strange the interaction must have looked, the actresses laugh off their blunder and J-Law throws in a tiny curtsy.
TBH, we’d probably react to J-Law hugging us in the same way—with utter shock.
