Touching footage of Jennifer Lawrence was captured on Monday, Nov. 11, when she walked down the red carpet for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere in London and she has once again proved what a beautiful person she is.
The Oscar-winning actress looked stunning in a fitted red coat and sported a brand-new blond crop hairstyle, but it was her personality that truly stole the limelight.
After spotting one of her fans crying in the crowd, 15-year-old Jessica Hambly, who uses a wheelchair, Lawrence decided to leave the red carpet mid-interview to comfort the young girl.
Asking for the security banners to be removed, The Hunger Games star went over to Hambly and knelt down in the rain to give her a big hug, posed for pictures and took the time to actually have a conversation with her.
This spontaneous show of affection will be remembered forever in the heart of Lawrence’s emotional young fan and luckily for the rest of the world, this rare and truly beautiful moment was captured on film.
Lawrence’s behavior has caused an internet sensation and fans from around the world have applauded her for her caring attitude, with many wondering who the young girl was.
According to Yahoo Movies U.K., the sobbing young fan suffers from Mucopolysaccharidosis disease, which is a “metabolic disorder that makes the joints of the body weaker, nerves less effective and the heart and lungs do not work as well as they should.”
Hambly attended the star-studded premiere because she had been granted a wish by the Starlight Children’s Foundation and her wish was to meet her favorite actors Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson.
Sarah Davey, Hambly’s wish granter said, “It really must have been truly amazing for Jessica to have Jennifer spot her from the other side of the carpet and make a very special visit over to her and then to kneel down beside her and say hello.”
“Jessica looks very emotional and no words can describe what that moment means to Jessica and her family — it will continue to be a very special moment for them all, a wonderful memory to cherish whatever the future holds.”
Hambly is just a teenager, but her positivity about her life and her condition is an inspiration to others and we are truly glad that she got to meet her idol.
Hambly said of her condition, “What is important to me, is time and memories and although I will never be a granny, I measure life in what you did, not how long you lived!”
