If you didn’t already think Jennifer Lawrence is a sweetheart, then this little clip of her at the red carpet Premiere of the new Hunger Games movie in London last night will convince you.
Instead of merely grinning inanely and looking smokily at the cameras, Jen spots a little disabled girl who is crying by the barricades, asks for them to be moved, and goes into the crowd to chat, sign an autograph, have her photo taken, and then gives the kid a couple of Jen-sized squeezes and a kiss.
The sweet act seems to cheer the child up.
Nicely done, right there. This 23 year old young lady seems so down-to-earth and ordinary, despite being (obviously) extremely pretty and awesomely talented. Really, what’s not to like?
We’re not all that keen on the new short hairdo, but it seems to be a current trend with starlets to lop off their locks.
Change is as good as a rest, I guess.
The Silver Linings star also strives to be a role model when it comes to body image, admitting she fought for her Hunger Games character to have a more realistic figure in an effort to set a positive example for young women.
“We have the ability to control this image that young girls are going to be seeing [in The Hunger Games] … girls see enough of this body that they will never be able to obtain,” she explained. “It’s an amazing opportunity to rid ourselves of that in this industry. And also I think it’s better to look strong and healthy and I feel like Kate Moss running at you with a bow and arrow wouldn’t really be scary.”
Now the 23-year-old Oscar winner has gone one better, openly slamming body bullies and insisting she’d rather eat than try and conform to Hollywood standards.
“You look like you look, and be comfortable. What are you going to do – be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb,” says the Oscar-winning starlet. “Screw those people! We have to stop calling each other ‘fat’.”
We are officially impressed.
