At just 22-years-old, Jennifer Lawrence is the star of the biggest movie franchise since “Twilight” — “The Hunger Games” — co-stars in an equally high-profile prequel series — “X-Men” — and just won the Academy Award for best actress.

It would be safe to assume that she is kind of a pretentious little snot. But it turns out that she is quite the opposite and is actually super awesome. (Author’s note: I’m not quite sure if I want to literally be her, be best friends with her or date her, although I don’t swing that way, but would consider it for her.)

Here are some of her most hilarious, self-deprecating or just plain bizarre comments or facial expressions that make her completely down-to-earth despite her megastar status. (Also, she apparently likes to smoke weed and drink red wine on Hawaiian balconies, if you are into that sort of thing. Which we are.)

  • She may rub elbows with Hollywood elite, but she has admitted in numerous interview that she thinks fart jokes are really, really funny.
  • Lawrence wasn't even close to being a household name just two years ago when she was nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actress. But what was she most excited for the second time around? "I'll be able to drink this time," she told More! "I was only 20 last time, so hopefully I'll be more comfortable. Or at least drunk."
  • Not only did she crack a few jokes during her Golden Globes acceptance speech, she also made a throwback to the 1996 classic "First Wives Club" when she said: "I beat Meryl."
  • She did this while going up on stage to claim her Oscar. After the audience gave her a standing ovation she said this, "You guys are just standing up because you feel bad that I fell and that's really embarrassing, but thank you."
  • Lawrence on the similarities between McDonald's french fries and the Oscars: "Ketchup on French fries is a classic, and today is a classic day."
  • She accidentally/ on purpose flipped the bird at the press room after her Oscars win.
  • On her latest Dior campaign: "That doesn't look like me at all. I love Photoshop more than anything in the world! Of course it's Photoshop, people don't look like that! Are you kidding?"
  • On her post-awards season wishes: "I want to sit on my couch and drink and not change my pants for days at a time."
  • She's awesome because she makes this face at the cameras.
  • "My boobs have a life of their own."
