When you’re not watching her as Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook or hearing her voice in your head while rereading The Hunger Games for the billionth time (guilty), Jennifer Lawrence is out there being herself to no limit. The 22-year old Academy Award Winning actress prides herself on who she is and what she says. And we love her for it. Here’s what we have learned (and what you can take away) from this beautiful, successful twenty-something.
Jennifer Lawrence has no shame in who she is, even as an actress. If she is feeling something specific, she expresses it… And has on many talk shows and red carpet interviews. Her sarcasm makes her humorous and her blunt attitude makes her an admirable person. I would want to be her best friend, wouldn’t you? Everyone needs someone honest and straightforward in their life like JLaw is.
She doesn’t hide her weirdness
If you have watched this brunette beauty off the silver screen, you know what we are talking about. Take a moment and mosey on over to YouTube and find an interview or red carpet event where Jennifer Lawrence is in attendance. She’s absolutely entertaining, doesn’t pretend to be anyone she’s not and, honestly, is someone you would want to be best friends (again) with because she’s herself. When she fell on the steps during the 2013 Oscars, she laughed it off… and continued to do so later on during press interviews (after saying a “very bad word… that begins with F”, according to Lawrence herself during the post-award interviews). She teaches us to be ourselves and not care what others may think about you, something that is often easier said than done.
She’s body positive
No matter her weight, JLaw teaches us to be OK with the way we look. In countless interviews, she’s said how she tries to eat what she wants and does not concern herself with crazy Hollywood-style dieting to be thin. This is the type of woman I consider to be a role model, twenty-somethings! In this time and age, being skinny is what is deemed to be “ideal”, instead of being happy and healthy — Lawrence teaches us to be happy with what we look like and to not stress about our eating habits. Being body positive is the strongest thing you can be, so thanks for that extra boost of confidence, JLaw!
While she teaches us to watch our steps while walking and that being an actress gets you free vacations (yep), Jennifer Lawrence is one successful, honest twenty-something who we love dearly.
