Jennifer Lawrence Visits Children’s Hospital Before Christmas

Jennifer Lawrence surprised kids at Kosair Children’s Hospital in her hometown of Louisville, Ky. on Wednesday.

This seems to be a holiday tradition of hers as the “Hunger Games” star visited the same hospital last year on Christmas Eve and on Dec. 22, 2013.

Lawrence also stopped by Shriners Hospitals for Children back in August when she was filming “X-Men: Apocalypse” in Montreal.

The “Joy” actress, whose film hits theaters on Friday, spent the afternoon spreading cheer and taking pictures with the children, their families and hospital staff, who shared photos on Facebook and Twitter (below).

“Thank you for bringing many smiles to the patients before the holidays,” the hospital’s official Facebook page wrote.

One of the children, 8-year-old Cooper Fullen, underwent surgery on Monday for a tumor on his adrenal gland.
