From CNN to Jezebel to the Huffington Post to your mom, everybody wants to be Jennifer Lawrence's new best friend. We get it. But on behalf of best friends everywhere -- the Rhodas, the Sixes, the Troysand the Ann Perkinses -- what does J-Law have, with all her regular-gal appeal, that all the real-life regular people don't?
You know, apart from the Oscar and the sweet Dior wardrobe and the money and the fame?
If you want a friend who hangs out in sweatpants all day while drinking red wine, we think your old gang can manage it. (Hanging out in sweatpants while drinking wine being the preferred post-Oscars activity of Jennifer Lawrence, as per Huffington Post.)
If you want to "watch" your friend light up a "Rihanna cigarette," they can probably handle that too -- and without the pesky tabloid attention that tends to hound Lawrence.
Jennifer Lawrence digs Photoshop, as she explained to Access Hollywood recently when they confronted her with her new Miss Dior ads. ("I love Photoshop more than anything in the world!") Your best friend said pretty much the same thing when he finally learned how to Photoshop lasers coming out of his pet kitty's eyes.
But there is one thing, now that we think of it, that might account for all these overtures of friend-love and girl-crushing and GIF collages for Jennifer Lawrence.

You know, apart from the Hunger Games, and that video from when she met Jack Nicholson, and every last no-bullsh*t press quote that would suggest she's completely awesome.
Her hobby is playing Bradley Cooper's matchmaker. And as she explained to MTV News, since Cooper split from Zoe Saldana this winter, she's been trying to set him up with her friends.
"I feel like all I've been doing lately is setting him up," Lawrence told the outlet. "I was like, 'You know what? I'm gonna save time and just get you a booklet with pictures of my friends. You just to through and pick them out, because this is getting exhausting."
