It's very hard not to love Jennifer Lawrence, and even harder not to do a unanimous "Aww..." when she tells a lame joke, trips, flips off the cameras, wears skirt-pants, or spills mints all over herself. Charming the world with just how normal and human she is (because you know, celebs are typically assumed as deities), JLaw has made an internet meme of herself, whether she likes it or not.

In an interview, the Silver Linings Playbook star expressed that she was concerned about how "annoying" she is.

"Nobody can stay beloved forever. People are going to get sick of me. My picture is everywhere, my interviews are everywhere," the 23-year-old actress said. "I'm really hyper... It's something I always tell myself: You need to calm the fuck down. You don't want to constantly be a GIF."

But we couldn't go through this GIF feed of her without loving her even more, could we? If anything, Jennifer being humble about her sensationalised humanness makes her even more endearing. She's not taking it for granted, though.

"I'm trying to do the right thing, waving to the fans, trying to be nice, and there's a traffic cone. The second I hit it, I was laughing, but on the inside I was like... they're totally going to think this is an act," Jennifer said.

It's okay, Jennifer. We'll try to tone down on the GIFs, but please don't stop being yourself.
