On Aug. 15, 1990, Jennifer Lawrence entered the world and all our lives are better for it. The actress delivers performances that have brought her critical raves and more than a few awards, while still staying refreshingly down-to-earth and like someone you’d really enjoy hanging out with.

And have we mentioned she’s only 25 years old? 

In celebration of Lawrence’s quarter-century birthday, we’ve rounded up 25 reasons she’s so great (also known as the reasons we’d all love to be her friend). 

1. She takes time to visit patients at a children’s hospital

 

2. She brought her (non-famous) BFF as her date to the 2014 Oscars

3. Her fall (and graceful recovery) when she won her Oscar the year before
