33 Times You Wanted Whatever Jennifer Lawrence Was Having

Aug 15 2016 - 2:00am

In the six years since Jennifer Lawrence [1]'s breakout role in 2010's Winter's Bone, the actress has established herself as the ultimate onscreen badass [2] and Hollywood's most desirable BFF [3], the combination of which makes her box office and newsstand gold. Even better, her infectious personality isn't a PR product — after all, she was bringing on the LOL-worthy moments way before she got superfamous [4], and she clearly lacks the filter necessary to emulate anyone else's path to fame. Case in point: her candid interview [5] with Vanity Fair about that nude-photo hacking incident in November 2014, or the way she spoke at length to Glamour [6] about America's misconceptions of her. Let's look back at all the times we could not hide our admiration for the daring A-lister.

When She Fired Back After the Nude-Picture Hacking Nightmare

"I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm sorry for," she told Vanity Fair. Jennifer not only stuck up herself, but also reframed the issue, saying, "It is not a scandal. It is a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It's disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change."
