One of the cutest little facts about Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence’s friendship is that they were “set up” on a friendship-date by Woody Harrelson. Woody had worked with both young women, and he thought the two actresses would get along well and be able to provide some support for each other as both were navigating Hollywood, relationships and more. It turned out well – Emma and J-Law are very good friends now. Unfortunately, that means that Emma and J-Law introduce each other to the assorted father-figures, dirtbags and sketchballs they’re dating. So imagine my lack of surprise that Emma Stone and Justin Theroux took their not-really-official coupledom to Jennifer’s NYC apartment for a dinner.
Jennifer Lawrence hosted a star-studded dinner at her place in New York City. The Oscar winner had pals Emma Stone and Justin Theroux over to enjoy a meal on the rooftop of her apartment on Monday evening. “They were eating and drinking and looking at the view and taking selfies,” an insider tells E! News of the dinner party, which lasted for a few hours.
After wrapping up their meal, the group, which included journalist Derek Blasberg, then headed back inside Lawrence’s apartment. Theroux was later photographed leaving Lawrence’s apartment with his new dog Kuma around midnight. Just days earlier, Theroux introduced his new pup to his Instagram followers.
What do they have to do to convince you that they’re happening? They’ve already attended Met Gala parties together. They’ve half-vacationed/half-worked together in the South of France. They’ve hung out in a cabana and got pap’d together. She’s turned up on his Instagram. He dumped Jennifer Aniston soon after he worked with Emma on Maniac. And now they’re going to her friend’s place for dinner in what seems like a “meet the friends” new-couple situation. Emma and Justin are together, people. And it’s super-edgy.
