Bette Midler Volunteers to Play Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence’s Mom in New Film
Remember when the internet got all excited about the prospect of an Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence playing sisters in a comedy? Now it seems Bette Midler wants to throw her name into the ring of contenders for the role of their mother, and fans are freaking out again.
Midler expressed her interest via Twitter writing, “Amy Schumer & Jennifer Lawrence are co-writing a screenplay about sisters. Hmm, who could play their mother? She’d have to be DIVINE!”

Jennifer revealed the news of her and Schumer’s movie plans to the The New York Times while doing press for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 2 last week. “We play sisters,” Lawrence told them.
She and Schumer have been friends for a couple of months now, even vacationing together with girlfriends. “I emailed her after I saw Trainwreck and said, ‘I don’t know where to get started. I guess I should just say it: I’m in love with you,’” Lawrence recalled. “We started emailing, and then emailing turned to texting.”
We think having Bette play the pair’s mom would be pretty hilarious, but we want to hear what you think in the comments below!
