"Amy and I were creatively made for each other," Lawrence told The New York Times. "We have different flavors. It’s been the most fun experience of my life."

Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer are siblings — creatively and, soon, onscreen.

The two are currently writing a screenplay, in which they play sisters, according to The New York Times. "We’re almost done writing," she said. "It just flowed out of us. We’ve got about 100 pages right now."

The actresses, who recently vacationed together in Martha's Vineyard (and lit up the Internet accordingly), only met a few 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,' " Lawrence explained. "We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting. ... We really hit it off, to say the least."

Of their collaborative writing process, the Hunger Games actress said, "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.”

Mid-interview, Lawrence texted Schumer that she let their secret slip. "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!' "
