Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence took some time over the Christmas holiday to visit Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky. She posed with kids and staff members for photos which soon showed up on Twitter.
Lawrence’s visit was unexpected, even though she did make a visit to the same hospital last Christmas as well.

Before Lawrence became one of the biggest names in Hollywood, she actually served as an assistant nurse.
Lawrence wasn’t the only star to bring smiles to the faces of young patients on Christmas Eve. One Direction member Niall Horan visited Dublin’s Crumlin Hospital in Ireland.
Staff posted pictures on Facebook.com and one nurse wrote, “For our patients it was a dream come true to meet the one and only Niall Horan… We’d like to say a huge thank you to Niall for visiting Crumlin Hospital and for putting huge smiles on all our patient’s faces. You’ve really made this a Christmas to be remembered.”
Colin Farrell also quietly visited the children’s hospital on Christmas Day, thrilling parents and patients alike.
