Brie recently made the revelation about the actresses in an interview with Vanity Fair, sharing that Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham have also become a part of the group.
But wait, there’s more: Apparently they have Woody Harrelson to thank for their friendship. Brie said he is like a “dad” to the original trio and has worked with all of them, so he thought they would be good friends.
Brie revealed that, while she was feeling “lonely” while promoting Room, “Emma wrote this beautiful email out of nowhere, and then one day Jen sent me a text message after she saw Room, and we started talking.”
“That (group of friends) saved my life,” Brie added. “I was able to talk with them about everything that was going on in my life, and it was with people who had been through it before and are also hilarious. That support and acceptance was everything. I was home-schooled, so I didn’t have friends that had the same interests as me, and I found it to be absolutely incredible.”

Bruce Springsteen is opening up about getting into some trouble with the law for not paying his taxes.
The 67-year-old musician explained that back in the 1970s, he didn’t know anyone who was paying their taxes!
“First of all, I never met anyone in New Jersey who paid any taxes! We never paid any taxes,” Bruce said during a Tribeca Talk.
He added, “Then when we got with [manager] Mike Appel. He was handling all our business and his thing was, ‘We’re not paying any f**king taxes.’ So, years went by and…all of this time went by. Nobody’s paying taxes — me, the band, no one I know.”
Bruce explained that the IRS caught up to him when they noticed him on the cover of Time magazine in 1975.
“They came after us and I had to work for a couple years for somebody else every night. Then we had to pay lawyers. In 1980, I think I had about $20,000 to my name,” Bruce added.

Selena Gomez is speaking out following criticism of her hit Netflix series 13 Reasons Why.
The 24-year-old actress, who produced the series, has been facing backlash from some mental health organizations who say the show “glamorizes suicide.”
“We stayed very true to the book, and that’s initially what [author] Jay Asher created was a beautifully tragic, complicated yet suspenseful story and I think that’s what we wanted to do,” she told the Associated Press.
Selena added, “We wanted to do it justice and, yeah, [the backlash is] gonna come no matter what. It’s not an easy subject to talk about, but I’m very fortunate with how it’s doing.”
The 37-year-old actress revealed that last year, she made more money through brand partnerships on social media.
“I gotta be honest with you, I didn’t make a ton of money as an actor last year. I made more money doing that kind of stuff, like the partnerships with brands,” Busy said in an Instagram story.
She added, “I just only choose things that I genuinely like and, like, would want to partner with, like, for instance, my Michaels partnership, which, you know, is my favorite thing of all time. And I’m doing one next week, I think, that feels like me.”
Busy went on to explain that she wouldn’t promote a product that was “random and weird,” unless it paid “like a billion dollars.”
