The Hunger Games star has vowed never to be a bridesmaid at a friend's wedding again.

Jennifer Lawrence struck up a great friendship with her Passengers co-star Chris Pratt's wife on the set of the movie by simply not being interested in him.

In the film, the actress and Pratt play a couple who wake from a deep space sleep 90 years early and find themselves alone on a spacecraft travelling to a distant colony planet.

She accepts filming could have been awkward if she was attracted to her co-star in any way, but insists she's not that kind of girl.

"I think women can sense if you are the kind of woman who is going to run off with their husband," she tells Vanity Fair. "I don't think I give off that vibe. I give off the 'Please like me!' desperation. Which is not threatening."

Faris joins a celebrity friendship squad, which also includes Amy Schumer and Emma Stone.

"She (Stone) texted me that she got my number from Woody (Harrelson). I replied, 'F**k off!' And we've been really good friends ever since."

The two actresses actually spent the first year of their friendship texting each other daily: "I feel like it was our version of The Notebook - 365 texts."

Lawrence's group of friends is so dear to her that she's nervous about getting married and picking bridesmaids - a role she hates.

The Hunger Games star explains, "All of my friends are getting married and having babies. Weddings rock, but I will never be a bridesmaid again. There needs to be a bridesmaids' union. It's horrendous. If anyone asks me again, I'm going to say, 'No. That part of my life is over'.

"If I do ever get married, I don't think I will have bridesmaids. How can I rank my friends?"
