continues to be the nicest, most gracious star working in Hollywood after recounting a story at the The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere that will warm your soul and restore partial faith in humanity.

Lawrence was telling a touching story about a young extra on her movie who had been badly scarred after being seriously burned as a child. The young girl admitted to the starlet that she was too self conscious to go to school but reading The Hunger Games and Catching Fire inspired a confidence in her to take pride in her scars and her friends now call her the 'girl on fire.'

Heartwarming stuff, I'm sure you'll agree. But Lawrence's response was also pretty special:

Sometimes it can seem so pointless, because you're filled with hair and makeup and clothes, and then sometimes, the lives that you can touch without even meaning to. So many wonderful things can come from this, when you have a voice, saying the right things. It takes me 10 minutes to sign a hundred posters that can raise thousands of dollars for charity, and it's so simple.

In direct contrast to other young stars who look at fame and wealth either as a burden (cough Kristen Stewart cough) or a birthright (hello the Kardashians), JLaw seems to genuinely appreciate her career and the trappings it brings. She's a great role model for young people to look up to and shows that you can have talent, fame and wealth but still keep your feet on the ground.

Ms Lawrence, I salute you.
