The Spring Breakers actress gave lots of praise to the Trainwreck star. “I talk about her obsessively," Gomez said, per E! Online. "I’ve tweeted her often. I try to impersonate her and it doesn’t really work. I actually just met her so basically what I’m saying is I’m really happy that clearly Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t able to do this tonight because I love you.”

“Amy, you’ve inspired me not to take myself too seriously when I sit on my couch and I’m depressed about certain things," Gomez continued. "You constantly made me feel I’m a badass even though most of the time I’m not. You say the things I wish I could say and you never ever make me feel bad about anything I do in my personal life."
