Jennifer Lawrence isn't just attending the 2015 Met Gala — she's also the event's cochair, the Costume Institute and Vogue announced on Friday. The big news  shouldn't come as a surprise. In the four years since her breakout role in 2010's Winter's Bone, Jennifer has established herself as the ultimate onscreen badass  and Hollywood's most desirable dream BFF , 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 , and she clearly lacks the filter necessary to emulate anyone else's path to fame. All of it has landed Jennifer in some pretty fabulous situations over the years. From jokingly giving people the bird after taking a shot at the Oscars to romancing Hollywood's hottest guys on and off camera, this A-lister has led a seriously enviable life — and she's not even in her mid-20s yet. Given Jennifer's Met Gala announcement, it's the perfect time to look back at 24 other times we wanted to be her.
