At 24 years old, Jennifer Lawrence has managed to win an Oscar, get nominated for two more, anchor a multi-billion dollar movie franchise, and win the hearts of pretty much every person on earth who has a pulse.
Since today is her 24th birthday, we really wanted to honor her by creating a special rendition of the “Happy Birthday” song. But with someone so accomplished, it’s hard to think of anyone worthy of the honor of singing it to her. I mean, this is Katniss Everdeen herself: how do you top the Girl on Fire?
The answer is, you don’t. Why get someone to sing “Happy Birthday” to one of the biggest stars of our time when you can just get her to sing to herself? She’s the only one who can really match up to the standards she’s set, realistically.
Of course Jennifer Lawrence, as great and down-to-earth as she is, would never be narcissistic enough to actually do that. So we decided to do it for her, taking some clips of her amazing characters and interviews and having her sing the ultimate birthday tribute to herself.
Happy birthday, Jennifer! We hope 24 is as good as 23, and with “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1” coming out in November, we’re sure it’ll be off to a great start.
