The Funny Girl’s Squad A.K.A The Women We Want To Be BFFs With

The Funny Girl’s Squad A.K.A The Women We Want To Be BFFs With

Move over everyone else, there's a new (kind of) squad on the block and it's pretty much the best we've seen yet

Don't get us wrong, we've nothing against Gigi, Kendall, Taylor and their squads but it can be a bit of an airbrushed life overload; Instagram feed saturated when all you're looking for a little LOL from the Fat Jewish - that kind of thing. 

Variety is the spice of life, as they say, so we’ve been pretty ecstatic to see another girl gang on the scene – and this one is a little bit different.

This new celebrity friendship group is our newest obsession - not in a social media stalking way, but in genuine admiration for their humour, work and all-round likeability.

Take their latest group pic, we heart it! No make-up, genuinely loungey loungewear... That's our kind of evening in.

Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, Lena Dunham, Tiny Fey, Amy Poehler, Julia Louis-Dreyfus et al… You know, only all the funniest women in the industry right now.

In fact, let us briefly run over just some of their work – like a kind of nutshelled IMDB, when they're not hosting awards ceremonies and contributing to Lena Dunham's newsletter Lenny

Amy Schumer – Inside Amy Schumer, Trainwreck

Jennifer Lawrence – Silver Linings Playbook (+ 1 Oscar), Hunger Games films, X-Men films, American Hustle

Rose Byrne - Bad Neighbours, The Internship, Annie, X-Men films, Bridesmaids, Get Him To The Greek

Lena Dunham – Girls

Julia Louis-Dreyfus - Seinfeld, Inside Amy Schumer, Veep

Amy Poehler - Mean Girls, Parks And Recreation, Blades Of Glory,  Anchorman 2

Tina Fey - 30 Rock, Mean Girls

(And loads more things, too. Basically - they’ve all been around, being brilliant for ages.)

Can you imagine what it would like being their friend? Aside from the intimidating necessity for you to be A* hilarious, talented and unaffectedly attractive, it would be SUCH a blast.   

The latest from the new super squad?

Well, as we know, Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are writing a film but now we’ve got some details.

J Law described the script, where the two of them play sisters, as ‘funny’, ‘dirty’ and ‘real’. And there’s more – ‘Amy, in this movie, she has it very together. It's her lifelong dream to be a flight attendant. She works at the airport’, she said. ‘I'm a MESS’.

Bring it ON. Until then we'll leave you with the Trainwreck trailer and some good memories (of theirs) to recap...  

Remember that time when J-Law and Amy Schumer went on holiday and everyone freaked about the coolest pair of celebrity friends ever?

(Ahh, the epitome of #SquadGoals.)
