Jennifer Lawrence hugs crying fan
Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is gaining popularity, but not for a movie role.
Fans on social media are praising her for hopping a fence at a red carpet event to hug a fan who was crying. Lawrence posed for pictures and chatted for a couple minutes before continuing on.
According to Yahoo, the young fan “suffers from mucopolysaccharidosis disease, a metabolic disorder that makes the joints of the body weaker, nerves less effective, and the heart and lungs do not work as well as they should.” The 15-year-old was at the event thanks to a foundation that grants wishes for “terminally and seriously ill children.”
The actress was in London to promote The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. It’s the second installment in the hugely popular series.
