Bella, meet Katniss. Katniss, meet Bella.
Kristen Stewart had something to smile about in Toronto on Saturday: While doing press at the Intercontinental Hotel, she happily met Jennifer Lawrence for the very first time.
"People who saw them said they were geeking out about each other," a source tells Us Weekly of the actresses, both 22 and the heroines of their own globally massive fantasy franchises (Twilight and The Hunger Games). Adds the source: "Kristen and Jennifer told friends they had emailed in the past but had never seen each other face to face. They're big fans of each other."
(Oscar nominee Lawrence is at Canada's massive film festival to promote The Silver Linings Playbook, with Stewart touting her own flick, On the Road.)
Indeed, back in March, Lawrence told Access Hollywood that she had emailed fellow superstar Stewart over a supposed feud.
"I wrote her an email because there was this huge, like, article about a Twilight and Hunger Games feud," Lawrence said. "And we've never met before and never spoken . . . "I just shot her an email, and was like, 'Hey, can't wait to see more as this feud unfolds!"
To her surprise, Stewart replied!
"[Kristen] wrote me back, and she was like, 'It's fine. Welcome to [our] world where everything you say gets turned into [something it's not],'" Lawrence said. "So, she understood."
Stewart, of course, could use a friend right now. Thursday evening was her very first red carpet since her cheating scandal erupted in late July. The Toronto Star noted that, during a Friday interview, Stewart seemed "tense" and "looking considerably thinner and less poised than she did at the Cannes Film Festival in May." Her estranged boyfriend Robert Pattinson has been in Los Angeles; on Thursday he promoted a new Breaking Dawn: Part 2 trailer at the MTV Video Music Awards, and on Friday, he appeared at the star-studded Stand Up to Cancer telecast.
