    22 Times Jennifer Lawrence Was The Badass Woman You Aspire To Be

    What a woman.

    1. When she wasn't afraid to give sexist questions, (like "What are you wearing?") the answer they deserved.

    2. When she didn't give a fuck about falling up the stairs because she had more important things to do, like collect her Oscar.


    3. Because at 22 she was the SECOND YOUNGEST WOMAN EVER to win one for Best Actress.

    She told Vanity Fair: "I was in a loving, healthy relationship for four years. It was long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he’s going to look at you.

    It is not a scandal, it’s a sex crime. It is a sexual violation. It’s disgusting. The law needs to be changed, and we need to change. That’s why these websites are responsible.

    Just the fact that somebody can be sexually exploited and violated, and the first thought that crosses somebody’s mind is to make a profit from it. It’s so beyond me. I just can’t imagine being that detached from humanity. I can’t imagine being that thoughtless and careless and so empty inside.”

    15. When she showed herself to be fiercely determined.
