7 Jennifer Lawrence Quotes About Friendship That Prove The Actress Is Probably The Best BFF Ever

Confession time: Often times, I wish Jennifer Lawrence was my BFF. I mean, I'm sure I'm not the only person to ever wish this; J. Law's name is so synonymous with "laidback" and "hilarious" these days that every one of her interviews is a delight to watch — to the point where I almost get more excited about the press tours for her new films than I do for the films themselves. J. Law has really put the humanity back in celebrity. One of the main reasons why people gravitate towards her, though, is because — despite her job — she seems like such a normal twenty-something girl who just so happens to be famous. She doesn't seem to take herself too seriously, but Lawrence has still offered a variety of wise quotes about everything from self-confidence to friendship that everyone should pay attention to. (She also seems to spend copious amounts of time thinking about pizza and fries, which I can relate to on a personal level.)

Despite my wishing and hoping, however, J. Law and I aren't actually BFFs (yet) — but it's clear that she takes friendships seriously. Surrounding yourself with people who know you well, and love you for who you are is something we can all aspire to. If you need further inspiration, here are seven J. Law quotes on friendship.

On Girls Having No Girlfriends

In June 2014 issue of Marie Claire , Lawrence said, “I don’t trust a girl who doesn’t have any girlfriends. I have really close girlfriends, but they are guys like me — girls who eat and don’t know anything about fashion.”

On Treating Others Well


During an appearance on Good Morning America , Lawrence said, “Why can’t we just be nice? It’s like, we grow up, and then we get right back into high school.”

On Being Concerned For Her Friend's Health

During a red carpet interview, Lawrence interrupted her Hunger Games co-star Josh Hutcherson mid-sentence and asked, “Is your rash doing OK?” This does two things: It shows she has an amazing sense of humor (which we all already knew, of course), and also proves she's a concerned friend!

On Her Favorite Type of People

During an interview with Nylon , Lawrence said, "I have an amazing group of people around me. I surround myself with 'no' people.They will tell me, 'Stop doing that' or 'You look terrible'—honest, real people."

On Her Oldest Friendships


In an interview with Entertainment Weekly , Jennifer Lawrence said, "I have an amazing group of friends who are not in the business who I've been friends with for years before any of this happened that I trust."

On Catching Up With Her Girlfriends

Lawrence told Nylon , "No matter how tired I am, I get dinner at least once a week with my girlfriends. Or have a sleepover. Otherwise my life is just all work."

On Her Inner Circle

While promoting The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, Lawrence chatted with Nylon about the people in her inner circle. She said, "I don’t feel any different, and sometimes when you go out and you see the way people look at you, it makes you feel kind of alienated and a little odd. So I try to surround myself with people who never look at me that way, and never fake laugh at my jokes."
