Jennifer Lawrence is the best friend everyone wants (and pretends) to have, so can you imagine what it would be like tagging along as her date to the Oscars?
Now you don't have to imagine, because her date to the 86th Academy Awards was her actual, real-life Bff Laura Simpson, and she wrote a hilarious tell-all essay about her star-studded, surreal night at the ceremony and after-parties. Originally published on MySpace, Simpson's essay spans the entire day of prep, all the way to when she arrived home at 3:30 a.m.
Lawrence and Simpson met exactly how you'd expect them to: bonding over pizza. "How did I get invited to the 86th Academy Awards, you ask? Well, my best friend took me as her date," Simpson writes. "I met her seven years ago at an event where we both didn't know a single person. We hit it off over a mutual respect for Chandler Bing, »
Admit it - at one time or another you might have fantasized about what it would be like if you were Jennifer Lawrence's bestie.

Simpson was the American Hustle nominee's date to the Oscars on Sunday (along with JLaw's on-again boyfriend Nicholas Hoult). But you might know her as the girl in the black dress who Lawrence grabbed as she almost face-planted on the red carpet. She uses "my freshly done Lauren Conrad up do to break her fall, »
