The Trainwreck star still feels terrible about last summer's cinema massacre during a screening of her comedy.

Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence are such good friends the comedienne has even seen the actress pee.

Poking fun at The Hunger Games star during a Vanity Fair video shared with The Huffington Post, Schumer targets her pal while commentating on footage from one of the actress' recent interviews.

When Jennifer urges young fans to be nice to each other, Amy jokes, "That's really sweet, but Jen is the meanest person I know, so that doesn't really apply.

"I think that's really good advice when you're 10 because that's the age girls are really mean, but Jen has sent me so many hurtful texts that make me laugh."

And then to prove how close she is to the movie star, Amy recounts a story of Jennifer peeing in a bidet.

"Ask her if she's ever seen anyone pee in a bidet," the actress says through the iPad interview Amy is holding in the video, prompting the comic to light up and share the details.

"Yes, I have," Amy responds, "and you want to know who it was? One Miss Jen Lawrence! That girl, if she sees a bidet, she's gonna p**s in it."

Things turn serious in her Vanity Fair cover story when she addresses her feelings of regret and blame after a gunman opened fire on a crowded Louisiana movie theatre during a screening of her film Trainwreck last July (15).

John Russell Houser's actions in Lafayette cost two film fans their lives and left nine others injured. Houser took his life before he could be apprehended.

Revealing she was "by myself in a hotel" when she heard the news, Amy recalled, "I was just like, 'I wish I never wrote that movie'."

"It's like when The Dark Knight shooting happened, and in Paris," she said, referring to the 2012 Aurora, Colorado, theatre shooting and November's (15) terror attacks in the French capital. "The idea of people trying to go out and have a good time... I don't know why that makes me the saddest.

"I just felt helpless and stupid."

Amy has since joined her cousin Senator Chuck Schumer to campaign for gun control reform.
