Displaying just some of what she has to offer in terms of a filterless response, Lawrence can be heard screaming unabashedly from the next room during one of our chats.

We later discovered that – in a display of impeccable taste – Lawrence was unleashing a show of envious enthusiasm when Amy Schumer texted her an image of an encounter with their mutual hero, Connie Britton
