Stone herself has been in J.Law's place before, only to a greater degree and on national television (opens in new tab). Her Golden Globe hug fail with La La Land director Damien Chazelle (who had been trying to hug his girlfriend) went viral:

"Damien certainly wants to hug NOT ME," she joked to Jimmy Kimmel later. "I'm not a highly choreographed person."
