Everyone is losing their mind over Jennifer Lawrence. And rightfully so! This girl has it going on. So let us count the ways Miss J Law herself has won over all our hearts and become the ultimate girl crush:

1. She gets to hang out with Bradley Cooper all the time and we don’t even hate her for it

Were this basically, um, ANY other actress, we’d be annoyed and jealous. Now? We’re annoyed and jealous of BRADLEY! He’s so lucky he gets to hang out with her!

2. Her talk show appearances

This one on Conan? The best. We normally take John Stamos’ ass very seriously, yet she managed to make it funny.

3. She's freakin' Katniss

Jennifer is leading the whole Hunger Games franchise, and as Katniss she's kicking more butt than all her male co-stars combined! (Here with Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth)

4. The red dress at the Oscars in 2011

Do we want to borrow it from her closet? Just admire it on her? Applaud her for wearing something seemingly simple and yet making a huge statement? Yes. All of it.

5. Oh yeah, she can ACT!

Sometimes we forget about this because she’s so fun, but homegirl can bring serious to the screen.

6. Her award show speeches are exactly what they are supposed to be

Of course we want to see her win at the Oscars on Sunday because she was fantastic in Silver Linings Playbook, but really it’s mostly because we want to see her speech. She’s able to combine excitement with self-deprecation, appreciation, and humor with just a tinge of nerdiness. She thanks the right people, she says what she has to say and moves along, and looks like she’s having as good a time doing it as she will be later that night at In-N-Out.

7. She’s uncensored.

She seems like the kind of friend that will tell you that floral print looks horrendous on you but follows it up with: wear that black dress that always looks great on you! We like that she’s not giving us publicist-fed answers to questions and doesn't apologize for it either!

8. She’s our other girl crush’s girl crush

Shown here with Mila Kunis and Taylor Swift, Bar Refaeli, Lena Dunham, (and a celeb we’ll be revealing tomorrow on the site!) have also confessed their girl crushes on her too!

9. We haven’t seen her hoo-ha

She’s not out at random clubs, falling down drunk or yelling at the paparazzi. Who knows, maybe she is! If so, we love her even more for keeping it a secret. But the “celebrity” hasn’t gone to her head and she's remained a regular 22-year-old.

10. She eats

Like, actual food. She's even admitted to liking Cheetos

11. She can rock a braid


It's no secret that best friends love to braid each other's hair, so judging by Jennifer's braid, she makes a GREAT friend.
