Oscar winners and good friends Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence keep their personal lives largely off social media, but the Internet got a very rare look into their friendship when New York City restaurant Hwa Yuan shared a photo of them stopping there for dinner.
“Hwa Yuan was thrilled to host Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence for dinner!” the caption of a photo posted to the restaurant’s Instagram read. “Chef Tang and the Tang family are big fans of theirs and are honored that they are fans of our restaurant and food. Emma and Jennifer, we hope you enjoyed and come back again soon!”
Both Stone and Lawrence opted for black ensembles, the unofficial uniform of New York City. Stone wore an open black button-down over a skintight black dress, while Lawrence stepped out in a black crop top and wide-led jeans, with a white-and-gray striped button-down layered over.
This is the first time the two actresses have been seen together this year, and since Lawrence became a mother. Lawrence welcomed her first child with husband Cooke Maroney in February, while Stone welcomed her first child, a daughter with husband Dave McCary, in March 2021.
Lawrence interviewed Stone for ELLE in August 2018, and the two friends spoke about their hopes of becoming parents in their 30s.
“Would you be a mother? She’s going to be the best mom; she’s so nurturing,” Lawrence said.
“That’s how you are! I think your maternal instinct is very strong and always has been,” Stone replied.
“Thank you, honey,” Lawrence quipped.
“My perspective about kids has changed as I’ve gotten older,” Stone elaborated. “I never babysat or anything. As a teenager, I was like, I’m never getting married, I’m never having kids. And then I got older and I was like, I really want to get married, I really want to have kids.”
