Teenager From Florida Looks So Much Like Jennifer Lawrence She Keeps Getting Stopped For Autographs

Teenager From Florida Looks So Much Like Jennifer Lawrence She Keeps Getting Stopped For Autographs

They say everybody probably has a doppelganger, but it's very rare that you'll ever actually know who or where they are. After all, there are seven billion on the planet, so the likelihood of finding someone who looks just like you is incredibly slim.

Unless, that is, your doppelganger happens to be Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence, aka one of the biggest actresses in the world.

Weirdly, 17-year-old Floridian Alexia Maier had no idea that she looked like J-Law and was a little stumped as to why people kept approaching her and asking for her autograph.

Initially, she thought people were just joking around with her, but then she twigged after receiving a number of comments when out in public about the similarity of her appearance to the star.

In fact, she looks so much like the actress that when she tells people she's not, they often don't believe her.

"At first I thought it was a joke when people started saying I looked like Jennifer Lawrence," she said. "But when I started getting dozens of comments about my J-Law similarities, I started to realise it myself."

Alexia says the confusion about her actually being Jennifer Lawrence only happens in places where the star would actually go, not in her hometown of Ponte Vedra.

"In my hometown, people know they're not going to see a real celebrity," she said. "So I've been told I look like her, but never confused. But when visiting New York, people will ask me for autographs.


"I think one of my favourite examples is when a woman said 'Jennifer, I'm your biggest fan!'.

'I told her, 'I'm not Jennifer!' but the woman immediately said, 'Are you sure?' I'll never forget her reaction. At first it was surprise, then awe, then disappointment."

While most people would probably be flattered to be mistaken for J-Law, Alexia, it seems, is one of the very few people on the planet who isn't a fan of the actress. Nevertheless she can't deny the effects her uncanny looks have had.

"I know this is not the answer people are expecting from me," she said, "but I am not a fan.

"Even so, I can acknowledge that Jennifer has definitely impacted my life in strange ways. I got a lot of attention in the first couple years of high school because of my similarities to her.

"I was also subjected to a lot of online attention when I was pretty young, good and bad, but both have managed to help shape me as a person."

Jennifer Lawrence has yet to comment on her younger lookalike, but at least she probably knows she can go on holiday to Ponte Vedra and not be bothered by too many people.
