The moment was captured on film by Ryan who shared it on Instagram shortly afterwards. "The single most important photo from the #goldenglobes red carpet," he captioned the snap.
Jennifer, who picked up the trophy for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a motion picture, joked that she wanted to push her friend off the podium during her interview.
"I was going to come in and push you down the stairs," the Oscar winner told Taylor, 24. "I was like, 'She'll crack up. She would really love that!'"
The country singer, who looked beautiful in a red Carolina Herrera gown, was certainly amused by the idea. "That's so funny," she replied.
The two stars then joked about whether Jennifer had attended one of Taylor's concerts.
"She's never invited me," claimed the Silver Linings Playbook star, promoting Taylor to retort, "I've invited you so many times!"
Instead, Jennifer, 23, revealed she had been cheering for her friend at the recent Country Music Awards.
"Oh my god, I freaked out over the CMAs," Jennifer gushed. "I sent her a text message that was like six inches long."
"I was reading it like, this is the most heartfelt text I've ever gotten," Taylor recalled. "I don't remember (what it said), but she was just so incredible.
"American Hustle, I was doing the same thing. I wanted so badly to send a novel text message!"
