Jennifer Lawrence and her pal Amy Shumer danced on Joel’s piano during his concert, according to video from the show, as he performed his classic song, which is featured prominently in Schumer?s film ?Trainwreck.”
?Inside Amy Schumer? writer Kyle Dunnigan posted video on Instagram of Schumer and Lawrence rehearsing with Joel earlier in the day. ?Rehearsals a little rough,? wrote Dunnigan, who also posted a group photo that included the two actresses with the caption ?Get ready for a bunch of billy joel photos. Me amy schumer and jennifer lawrence are going on stage tonight.?
(Dunnigan has since deleted both the video and photo, for some reason.)

Later that day, Jen and Amy appeared on stage during Billy Joel’s performance of ‘Uptown Girl’, where they shimmied around to the song, which features in Amy’s movie ‘Trainwreck.’
At one stage Jennifer was even seen kissing Amy’s bare feet as the comedian climbed on to the piano (watch video below).

On Wednesday, Jennifer Lawrence met with a New York Time’s reporter to discuss her final turn as Katniss Everdeen in ?The Hunger Games: Mockingjay ? Part 2,? arriving in theaters on Nov. 20. But the conversation inevitably turned to more casual subjects, and Ms. Lawrence casually broke some news: She is writing a comedic screenplay with Amy Schumer (?Trainwreck?) and the women plan to co-star in it.
?We play sisters,? Ms. Lawrence said. ?We?re almost done writing. It just flowed out of us. We?ve got about 100 pages right now.?
She continued, ?Amy and I were creatively made for each other. We have different flavors. It?s been the most fun experience of my life. We start the day off on the phone, laughing. And then we send each other pages. And we crack up. I?m flying out tomorrow to see her in Chicago. We?ll write a little bit with her sister, Kim, who worked with Amy when she was writing ?Trainwreck.??
Ms. Lawrence said that she only met Ms. Schumer a couple of months ago.
?I emailed her after I saw ?Trainwreck? and said, ?I don?t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I?m in love with you,?? she recalled. ?We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.?
In early August, Ms. Schumer invited her new friend to go jet skiing and the resulting photos lit up the Internet. ?We really hit it off, to say the least,? Ms. Lawrence said.
She picked up her phone. ?Let me just text Amy and tell her that I told you,? she said, beginning to type. Ms. Schumer responded immediately. Ms. Lawrence glanced at the message, and threw her head back in laughter.
?I wrote, ?I just spilled the beans to The New York Times. Is that O.K.??? she said. ?And Amy wrote back, ?That you?re gay? Totally! It?s exciting!??
