Jennifer Lawrence is probably the most spontaneous contemporary celebrity, often displaying a rare openness and an even rarer kind heart with little regard to what critics may say in response. So maybe it comes as no surprise to many of her fans that instead of spending Christmas eve with her family and friends, Ms. Lawrence spent the evening bringing joy and happiness to the hearts of sick children at one local children’s hospital. Lawrence gave the gift of time this holiday season and, in a society so driven and hectic, that truly is a rare gift. This Christmas eve, Jennifer spent her time visiting the children confined to one children’s hospital. The visit from Lawrence was well received by the patients of Kosair Children’s Hospital in the Jennifer’s hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. While there, Ms. Lawrence posed for photos with the children, as well as with the hospital staff, according to CBS News.
Her second holiday visit to the children of Kosair Children’s Hospital in as many years, Lawrence has made this yearly donation of her time something of a tradition.
“Thank you for visiting the kids yesterday. We know it meant a lot to them and brightened their day,” the hospital tweeted, following Lawrence’s 2013 visit.
It seems Jennifer is no stranger to sick children, and she seems to enjoy bringing smiles to their faces whenever she can. People reports that Lawrence has experience in the nursing field, serving as an assistant nurse at a children’s summer camp that had been run by her mother, Karen, and father, Gary.
“It’s impossible to shock me or gross me out.”
The photos, which were posted to Jennifer Lawrence’s official Twitter account were a big hit with hundreds of fans retweeting the shots. Her account can be found and followed here.

Earlier this month, Ms. Lawrence spent time in New York City, where she caught her Silver Linings Playbook co-star Bradley Cooper on Broadway in a production of The Elephant Man.
Lawrence will be working with Cooper again in a drama directed by David O. Russell, Joy, which is scheduled for a Christmas 2015 release. Joy also stars veteran actor Robert De Niro and centers around the story of a struggling single parent in Long Island, who ultimately finds success as an entrepreneur.
