BRINGING THE LAUGHS
Lawrence further showed off her comedic chops when hosting Saturday Night Live in New York on Jan. 19, where the star took some jabs at her fellow best actress Oscar nominees in her opening monologue. "Well, well, well. Look who it is. Jessica Chastain. More like, Jessica Chas-ain't-winning-no-Oscar-on-my-watch!" Yes, it was all in good fun, and yes, she was actually right about winning!

LOTS OF LOVE

It was the most adorable misstep ever: Lawrence stumbled over her cupcake-esque Dior Haute Couture gown while walking up the stairs to claim her Best Actress Oscar in front of Hollywood's elite on Feb. 24 – then bounded back up (thanks in part to Hugh Jackman) to accept the gold. As the audience stood to cheer for her, she endeared herself even more, saying, "You guys are just standing up 'cause you feel bad that I fell and that's really embarrassing, but thank you."

She raked in big box-office dough this year, but that doesn't mean Lawrence was spending it. "I was raised to have value for money, to have respect for money, even though you have a lot of it," she told the U.K.'s Fabulous in March. "That's why mini-bars are difficult, because it's like yes, I can afford a $6 Snickers bar, but there's just something wrong with that!"

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala is the polar opposite of comedy hour – unless Lawrence is in attendance, and decides to run her hands through Sarah Jessica Parker's's faux hawk just for the hell of it. "I have this thing when I meet famous people where I just shut down and do something really embarrassing," she later told EW.

Lawrence isn't shy about voicing her hatred of dieting and body image issues imposed by Hollywood. She revealed to Harper's Bazaar UK that she'd once been told to lose weight or risk of being fired, to which she responded in appropriate J-Law fashion: "If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet', I'm like, 'You can go f*ck yourself.'"

THE HAIR UP THERE

Lawrence's ability to make any situation adorable was evident on Nov. 20 when she appeared on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman in New York. After admitting she was freezing in the studio ("Do you ever get so cold that you start sweating? Is that just a gross problem I have?" she asked), a crew member brought her a pink blanket, which she generously shared with her host. "The rumors are going to start," she joked after he climbed under the covers with her.

That no diet stuff she mentioned before? Yeah, she's serious. "Nothing can motivate me. During Hunger Games, when I was eating ungodly amounts, I used to tell myself, 'Stop eating – people are going to see this. This is going to be around forever,'" she told InStyle. "But nope! I was like, I still want candy, and I still want a hot dog! And then X-Men started and I thought, 'Oh, definitely – I'll be naked, I'll make myself work out and diet.' But nope. Not me!"
