6 Reasons We Love Jennifer Lawrence

Being a celebrity comes with many perks. From red carpet events and wearing designer clothes to being in magazines and having a chauffeur, it’s a life we’ve all fantasised about while we sit at our desks, right? And while we’re all about the glamour and getting the gossip, it’s refreshing when a celebrity breaks that façade. Enter Jennifer Lawrence aka J-Law, who turns 28 today. The queen of keeping it real, she’s unapologetically honest, a feminist and hilarious. Here are six of her best quotes that prove why we love her…

She’s honest…

“I don’t really diet or anything. I’m miserable when I’m dieting and I like the way I look. I’m really sick of all these actresses looking like birds… I’d rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than look great on screen and look like a scarecrow in real life.”

She’s a feminist …

“I don't know why that word is so scary to people; it shouldn't be, because it just means equality. If we are moving forward in a society, you are feeling stronger as a woman, and you want to be taken more seriously. You don't have to take away the wonderful traits that come with being a woman: We are sensitive. We are pleasers. We're empathetic. All those things that can keep you from asking for what you want or making mistakes.”

She’s clumsy…

“You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that’s really embarrassing, but thank you.” 

She puts her friends first…

“As hard as it is and as tired as I am, I force myself to get dinner at least once a week with my girlfriends, or have a sleepover. Otherwise my life is just work.”

She works hard…

“I put in my time; I lived in a rat-infested apartment when I was 14 and I was told 'No’ many times. I put my blood, sweat and tears into all of this. It’s easy to look from the outside and see my career grew very fast but there was a time before that career when I was working for it and I definitely wouldn’t have wanted that time to go on any longer.”

But knows when to chill…

“If I don’t have anything to do all day, I might not even put my pants on.”


Keep being you J-Law!
