There are so many reasons we want to be BFF with Jennifer Lawrence! She is Hollywood's new "it" girl, and she seems to be everywhere lately! You saw her fall at the Oscars in that stunning dress, you saw her on the big screen in X-Men, The Hunger Games, and Silver Linings Playbook, and you've laughed so much at her TV interviews. But if you need even more reasons to love her, then here are 8 reasons we want to be BFF with Jennifer Lawrence!
1. She's 'Real'
First up on our list of reasons we want to be BFF with Jennifer Lawrence is the most obvious one, she's 'real.' True, it's not fun to have a friend that's a complainer, but Jennifer complains about things that SHOULD be complained about. For example, she has constantly been quoted in hating her fancy premiere wardrobes because they aren't comfortable. She also complains that she's starving because she is on a diet to look good for a role. It shows that she's 'real' and doesn't try to put on a show for everyone like she enjoys all of the negative aspects of her job. It also reminds us that she is just a normal girl, like all of us, thrown into a surreal world.
2. She's Totally Weird
Have you seen some of her funny facial expressions during the Oscars when the camera panned to her? Or when she said "Does a bear shit in the woods?" live on network TV while talking about "Dance Moms"? Jennifer is totally weird and we love her for it! Too often do we see starlets trying to be their idea of perfect that it's refreshing to see someone who's so open and quirky. This is also what makes her so "gif-able"!
3. She Played Katniss & Mystique!
Jennifer Lawrence has played two of the biggest bad-ass female characters around! Mystique from X-Men: First Class didn't take crap from anyone and loved herself even with her blue appearance and Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games was the most independent female character I've ever seen. If Jennifer Lawrence can portray these two characters flawlessly, then she must have those qualities underneath her acting skills as well.
4. She Makes You Laugh
Once, at a red carpet event, Jennifer went up to Josh Hutcherson while he was being interviewed and said, "Is your rash doing okay?" She likes to make jokes and is quoted as saying some pretty witty things. Why wouldn't you want a BFF who makes you laugh all the time? Well, I guess it depends on if you have a good sense of humor.
5. She Crashed Her Car for Honey Boo-Boo
On "The Tonight Show," Jennifer admitted to crashing her car once because she thought she saw a Honey Boo-Boo parade. It was actually a breast cancer parade but Lawrence had misread "Boobs" on the sashes of the parade participants. "I started craning my neck, and then I saw a little girl, and I was like, 'Oh, that's Honey Boo-Boo,' and I'm still driving, and then I rear-ended the person in front of me."
6. She's Modest
Even with all the fame and awards, Jennifer seems to be one of the most modest celebrities out there. She was quoted as saying, "I'm so aware of all the B.S. that surrounds Hollywood and how everyone gets on this high horse and thinks that they're curing cancer, and it makes me so uncomfortable every time I see it." She's also said she feels out of place at Hollywood parties. Modesty is the perfect quality for a friend, who wants to hang out with someone who's all about themselves?
7. She Sets Friends up with Bradley Cooper
Allegedly, Jennifer Lawrence tried to set Bradley Cooper up with some of her friends. That ALONE would be enough for any girl to want to be Jennifer's friend. But on top of that, only Jennifer Lawrence would be cool enough to not be interested in the amazingly handsome Bradley Cooper and be generous enough to set her friends up with him!
Jennifer will be hitting the big screen again soon with a new X-Men movie and the second installment of The Hunger Games series! Jennifer is sure to be in the spotlight for a long time so let's hope she doesn't change too much because we love her just the way she is! Do you love Jennifer Lawrence as much as we do? If not, why bugs you about her?
