3. They've both been linked to Hollywood hunks

We were all rooting for Jennifer and her [a href="/conversation/entertainment/jennifer-lawrence-and-bradley-cooper-at-the-oscars--photographic-evidence-of-why-should-be-dating">American Hustle co-star Bradley Cooper[/a]. Sadly it was not to be.

3. They've both been linked to Hollywood hunks

Taylor [a href="/fashion/news/does-taylor-swift-match-her-style-to-her-relationship">dated Jake Gyllenhaal[/a] for two months in 2010. It didn't last, but she got plenty of writing material out of it.

4. But prefer the company of Brit boys

Taylor had a dalliance with One Direction's Harry Styles (seen her hit track, I Knew You Were Trouble), but you're more likely to find her hanging with her friend Brit singer Ed Sheeran these days. Jennifer Lawrence is reportedly back together with her UK fella Nicholas Hoult of About A Boy, Skins and A Single Man fame.

7. They like nothing more than snuggling

Taylor posted a cute photo of her Christmas onesie on Instagram, but Jennifer is equally fond of a duvet days, as she revealed on David Letterman.

8. They're both pro photobombers

We think Jennifer Lawrence slightly has the edge in this department, but Taylor photobombing Keith Urban was a real treat.

9. And selfie queens

She doens't post as much as we like, but Taylor is great on Instagram. And our dreams came true the day Jennifer joined Facebook.

We love a 'before they were famous' modelling shot and here we have two for the price of one. Jennifer Lawrence and Taylor Swift, who it recently emerged have become good friends both got their showbiz start as the face of US retail chain Abercrombie & Fitch. The brand is known for its sexy ads featuring topless male models and all-American beauties, so it's not much of a surprise that J-Law and Tay Tay were A+F girls.

But that's not the only thing this pair have in common. At the Golden Globes last month they proved that they share a similar sense of humour as J-Law crept up on Taylor while she was being interviewed on the red carpet, creating, perhaps, one of the best photobombs of all time. She joked that she had considered pushing Swift down the stairs, to which the singer replied, 'You should have. People love that.' 

The two stars also demonstrate a similar stance on their role as a 'role model'. Taylor told US Glamour, “I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have." Meanwhile Lawrence has spoken out about the media's portrayal of body image claiming that it "should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV." She explained, "I mean, if we're regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren't we regulating things like calling people fat?"

If you weren't already persuaded that Jennifer Lawrence and Taylor Swift are one and the same (kinda), take a look through the gallery above. It's clear that everyone's favourite girls next door are dream BFFs.
