Today, Jennifer Lawrence – also known to fans as “JLaw” – turns 26. The Academy Award-winning actress is best known for two things. First and foremost: her incredibly successful acting career, which includes her roles as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook, Rosalyn Rosenfeld in American Hustle, and most recently Joy in the biographical film of the same name.

The star’s second claim to fame is the fact that she is forever celebrated for being unafraid to let her freak flag fly, no matter what the circumstances. Often deemed the most approachable celebrity in Hollywood, JLaw speaks candidly about self-acceptance, her body, hating exercise, and her love of reality television. Read on to discover Savoir Flair’s edit of her ten most endearing quotes to date.

1

"I'm a big believer in accepting yourself and not really worrying about it."

2

"Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody's like, 'How can you remain with a level head?' And I'm like, 'Why would I ever get cocky? I'm not saving anybody's life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I'm making movies. It's stupid.' "

3

"I can think of a lot of things that taste better than skinny feels – potatoes, bread, a Philly cheesesteak, and fries."

4

"I have the street smarts and survival skills of, like, a poodle."

5

“I’m a horrible dancer! I’m like a dad at prom. I look like Gumby getting electrocuted.”

6

“I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life.”

7

"I don't like going out that much. I'm kind of an old lady. After it's 11, I'm like, 'Don't these kids ever get tired?' When I'm out, I think about my couch. Like, 'It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there's an episode of Dance Moms on. Am I missing a new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians?' Reality TV is my silver lining. At the end of the day, there's probably nothing that makes me feel better than junk food and reality TV."

8

“I never think it’s right to chew gum in front of other people but a lot of times, I’ll come in for a meeting chewing gum and I’ll forget I’m chewing it. Then you don’t want to swallow it because it stays in your system for seven years or something, so I’ve asked to throw it away. I’ve started to wonder if that’s why I didn’t get certain movies.”

9

“I hate saying, ‘I like exercising.’ I want to punch people who say that.”

10

“I always feel like an idiot every time I fly first class because I’m a kid. And I just sit there, and everyone’s got their newspapers and they’re on the computer, and I’m like, ‘Can I get a coloring book, please? Can I get some crayons?’ ”
