Watch: Jennifer Lawrence walks off 'Hunger Games' premiere red carpet to comfort crying fan


Another day, another reason to admire Jennifer Lawrence.

Hollywood’s It Girl was dressed to the nines in a backless, jewel-encrusted Christian Dior Couture gown for the London premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Thursday night. Showing off her buzzworthy new haircut, she walked the red carpet and spoke with reporters and posed for photos along the way.

But that didn’t stop the 23-year-old star from noticing a young fan standing behind the security barriers, sobbing. In the video above, Lawrence can be seen walking off the red carpet, heading toward the little girl, having workers move the barriers away, and crouching down to comfort the fan face-to-face.

The Oscar winner gives the girl a hug, a kiss on the cheek, and poses for a photo. In the video, we can’t hear what Lawrence says to the young fan, but whatever it is, the girl responds with some enthusiastic nodding.

This is just the latest instance in Lawrence’s long track record of compassion. In July 2012, the actress stopped to help a woman who collapsed in Santa Monica, California, and stayed at the scene until paramedics arrived. And in April, Lawrence won the Down Syndrome of Louisville’s Friendship Award for maintaining a true relationship with her fan and friend Andy Strunk, who has Down Syndrome and lives in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.
