The Golden Globes provided an emotional rollercoaster of an event for spectators and attendees alike on Sunday night. All the fist pumping as powerful women took the stage/mic was exhilarating yet somehow overwhelming, even for those watching the event from the couch. It’s not so shocking, then, that actress Emma Stone bailed on the after parties following the formal awards.
According to Jennifer Lawrence, Stone had asked her if she wanted to be her date to the after parties, and as her bff, of course she said yes. (Need proof of their adorable friendship? Watch this interview of the pair.) Lawrence secured after party tickets (which, even A-listers need to get in, apparently — who knew?!) and a car for her and Stone, but as the mother! star was getting her face on, Stone called with a change in plans.
“I was halfway through glam when you told me that you didn’t want to go. You just wanted to come over to my house,” Lawrence says in a video (which Stone filmed) that was uploaded to Facebook. “So I sent my hair and makeup team home.” Lawrence then proceeds to show off her half done makeup to the camera, revealing one eyelid covered in smoky grey shadow and the other totally bare. The duo break into a fit of laughter at the state of Lawrence’s half-done makeup look.
Bailing makes sense. Stone was likely up early prepping for the big night, in hair and makeup for hours before the 5pm PST red carpet took place, then they sat for another three hours for the actual ceremony, smile/socialize/network, and then were expected to go home, get even more glammed up, change outfits and hit a bunch of after parties!? Staying awake to meet friends for a drink at 8pm after working nine to five at a desk is hard enough…
Stone doesn’t appear in the video alongside Lawrence, but bffs do everything together, so one can only imagine that, in a show of solidarity, she also removed all of the makeup from one eye. With this pair’s star status, maybe one eye makeup will be a thing come summer 2018. Imagine time we’d save!
