A THG favorite celebrates her birthday today.

Oh, yes, readers, Jennifer Lawrence is now 23 years old!

The young actress has sky-rocketed to enormous fame since being cast as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, earning an Academy Award last year for her portrayal and Silver Linings Playbook and coming across as generally awesome.

She adores Jeff Bridges. She photobombs Sarah Jessica Parker on the red carpet. She thinks the paparazzi should all be arrested.

Seriously, she's the coolest.

So cool, in fact, that Lawrence received top birthday billing today on THG, despite the fact that Joe Jonas turns 24 today and Ben Affleck turns 41.

J. Law has come a very long way - and she'll be going a long way for the Catching Fire premiere. Learn more about it in this video:
