Whenever celebrities (or anyone, for that matter) compare themselves to Jesus (I’m looking at you, Kanye), it tends to come off as totally obnoxious. However, it’s a perfectly acceptable to be deemed as the second coming by someone else, particularly when the person on the receiving end of the compliment is Jennifer Lawrence. The actress’ Mockingjay co-star Donald Sutherland compared Lawrence to Jesus Christ, saying, "She’s the right person at the right time in the sense of Joan of Arc or Jesus Christ, any genius, in that sense."

Contiuning with the J. Law lovefest, Sutherland isn't the only celebrity to sing the actress' praises. Here are 8 other celebrities who gave Lawrence the most wonderfully unique compliments:


Amy Adams

Lawrence’s American Hustle co-star Amy Adams complimented the Mockingjay star’s onscreen kissing skills, saying that “Jennifer pulls it off wonderfully because you believe it again as part of the character.”


Helen Mirren

In response to being compared to J. Law, Mirren said, “She’s much prettier than I was.”  Take the compliment, J. Law  Considering Mirren is the new face of L’Oreal Paris, she knows a thing or two about beauty.


Harry Styles

Although Lawrence could make the worst outfit look great, it doesn’t hurt that Harry Styles complimented her fashion sense, telling InStyle the Mockingjay actress “dresses cool.”

Lenny Kravitz

Josh Hutcherson

By now we know that Hutcherson and Lawrence are the best of friends, but I’m sure it still touches a soft spot in her heart to hear Hutcherson rave about her versatility as an actress.

Elizabeth Banks

Personally, being called a “badass” is the ultimate compliment. Therefore Banks gets major kudos for making Lawrence the first female badass on her YouTube series Ask A Badass.

Channing Tatum

It’s hard to imagine the Magic Mike star as a woman, but that’s not an issue for him. Tatum told Cosmpolitan, “I wouldn’t mind being the male Jennifer Lawrence.”


Julia Roberts

Roberts has a problem with Lawrence being one of America’s Sweethearts, and she came up with a great reason to have her excluded from the club—she says Lawrence is too cool.
