Donald Sutherland on Jennifer Lawrence: She's Just Like Jesus Christ!

by at .

Jennifer Lawrence is totally and completely awesome, this really cannot be denied.

The actress sings... she makes fun of herself at all times... she looks gorgeous in these new Dior ads.

Trust us, you won't find a bigger Jennifer Lawrence fan than The Hollywood Gossip.

Still, the Oscar winner can't exactly turn water into wine or heal the sick with the touch of her hand. She does have her limits.

But try telling that to Donald Sutherland.

Speaking to E! News about his Hunger Games co-star, the veteran actor heaped about as much praise on Lawrence as one can heap on anyone, telling the outlet:

“When I worked with her, I realized the child was a genius. She’s the right person at the right time in the sense of Joan of Arc or Jesus Christ... any genius, in that sense.”

We're not sure what sense Sutherland is referring to, but Jesus Christ didn't receive three Academy Award nominations prior to turning 24 years old.

So we guess the comparison isn't all that crazy.

“She has the ability as an actor to tell the truth out of the material and that truth is immediately recognizable with everybody because it hits you in your heart, your solar plexus and your mind," Sutherland added. "And she has the genius of person to be not affected by all of this. She’s just a real girl.”

She isn't too hard on the eyes, either..
