Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar-winning matchmaker

Oh, to be a friend of Jennifer Lawrence.

You'd get to hear firsthand about that time Jack Nicholson sorta/kinda hit on her, and you'd get to hang out in Hawaii and drink wine and do ... other stuff.

And if you're Bradley Cooper, it seems, you also get a free matchmaking service.

"Bradley, he's my brother," the 22-year-old told MTV on Oscar night. "I feel like all I've been doing lately is setting him up. I was like, you know what, I'm going to save time. I'm going to get you a booklet of pictures of my friends, and you just go through and pick them out because this is getting exhausting for me."

The two "Silver Linings" co-stars were actually rumored to be dating once upon a time, which Lawrence said she anticipated.

"One time, my publicist told me that a magazine was going to say that things were either between me and ["Hunger Games: Catching Fire" co-star] Sam Claflin, or Bradley Cooper, and I chose Bradley Cooper because I love Sam's fiancée so much."

Something else she loves? Photoshop - which she says was applied to those new Dior ads she's featured in.

"That doesn't look like me at all," the best actress Oscar winner told Access Hollywood when she was shown the final, stunning results. "I love Photoshop more than anything in the world. Of course that's Photoshop, people don't look like that."

  18. what can i say about Jennifer Lawrence...

    We want women to pay attention to Jenifer Lawrence and see how a woman really should be and act.
    Jennifer will always have success and survive because she is a CLASS ACT.

    We need more women like her in this society. We need to get back too basics of how women should act.

    I just think she is so pretty. I hope when I grow up that I'm as pretty and nice as her. My mom let me watch the Hunger Games. It was pretty scary, but she really kicked butt in that one. I think that Bradley guy is very handsome, too. He has such a pretty smile. I'll bet he is a really nice guy. When I get older, I'd like to marry him. I think my mom would like that, too. I heard my mom say that she'd hit it. I don't know what that means, but I don't really think she meant she wanted to hurt him. My mom said I would understand when I got older.

  28. Jennifer Lawrence is what we call High Class (pictured above)

    She wins my vote as a perfect example for men...she's a lady but enjoys having fun and she know herself as a woman and perfect match for brade (pic above) - he looks so happy watching her that hopefully the 2 will be closer then friends. Brad should be proud to have her as a friend and they will start dating.

    LOL the jealousy oozing in these comments are hilarious. she's a breath of fresh air that Hollywood has desperately needed among its filthy narcissism. Jennifer is classy, down-to-earth, wonderfully talented, and wise beyond her years. While you guys complain behind a computer, she's building upon incredible, well-deserved career. She's beautiful and attractive, yet she doesn't go around flaunting herself off because she know's she doesn't need to. She has a great personality to back it all up
