Hail to kind, smart, wise Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence has taken the “America’s sweetheart” crown from Sandra Bullock.

This week, amid the release of her latest film, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” she dissed oversexed pop stars and consoled a sobbing fan — a double-whammy in the integrity department.

Lawrence stepped off the red carpet to kneel down and commune with the tyke — something that apparently doesn’t happen often, or it wouldn’t be news.

Regarding some of her lewd showbiz colleagues, though, she is less solicitous. “Sex sells,” she told the BBC, “and for some disgusting reason, young sex sells even more.”

As for Miley Cyrus’ twerking with dwarves, she politely said, “To each their own.”
