LOS ANGELES, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Jennifer Lawrence says she'd would gladly pass-up her third Golden Globe to let Amy Schumer take it home.

The Joy actress revealed to Z100 Monday she doesn't "want" the award and would much rather see comedian Schumer win Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy film for her work on Trainwreck. The two are nominated in the same category.

"I would love to see her sweet [expletive] up on that stage," she said.

When nominations were announced last week, Lawrence, 25, admitted to eTalk she didn't realize she was in the running against friend Schumer, 34. "That was so amazing because obviously I only pay attention to myself, so I was like 'oh I got nominated,' and then when she texted and said something about the same category I was like -- are you, what, lie -- huh?"

In August, Lawrence announced she and Schumer were working on a new screenplay together for which they plan to be the stars. "We play sisters," she told the press at the time.

Now, the Mockingjay: Part 2 actress says a win for Schumer would make their upcoming movie even more irresistible. "So obviously I'm pulling for her," she said. "Selfishly, it would be good for our movie if she won, so vote for Amy."

The duo reportedly plan to wear the same dress to the Golden Globes Awards ceremony in January, as well. "We're going to try to figure out to wear the exact same thing" she said over the weekend. "She's going to have to wear Dior," adding the label will just have to make "two of whatever they're making for me."
