Have You Seen the Florida Teen Who Looks Just Like Jennifer Lawrence?
Alexia Maier has been getting a lot of attention in the past month, which is probably a good thing, since her Instagram bio says she's a "Signed Actress/Model." Is it a good thing, though, that she looks nearly identical to an already established actress? If someone needs to cast Jennifer Lawrence's younger sister, they need look no further.
Alexia told the Daily Mail she gets stopped on the street from fans thinking she's the 27-year-old Oscar winner:
"At first I thought it was a joke when people started saying I looked like Jennifer Lawrence. But when I started getting dozens of comments about my JLaw similarities, I started to realize it myself. In my hometown, people know they're not going to see a real celebrity, 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 favorite 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."
You know what? Send this non-Jennifer Lawrence out to meet Jennifer Lawrence fans, since the real one clearly hates to talk to them.
Alexia told the Daily Mail she's not even a big Jennifer Lawrence fan herself, but she knows the actress has definitely impacted her life in ways good and bad:
"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."
You can check out her Instagram to see how much she looks like JLaw -- with blonde or brown hair -- in some photos more than others:
Okay guys! So lately this year I've been losing some weight. So far I've lose fifteen pounds. Been feeling a lot better, but I'm actually still having problems with insecurity. "Should I post this?" and, "Should I EVER post this?" are problems that always seem to pop up when I go to put a picture up online. I know, I may not respond to your amazing comments, but that's just because I don't know what to say. Thank you all for your support! #Unite
For the past couple of years I've noticed people reposting my selfies on other social media. The thing that bothers me about it is that they don't actually mention me. Honestly, if you have the time to post five of my selfies on Facebook or Twitter saying that I look like someone else, you can include my name. I find it rude and disrespectful how people simply label me "not Jennifer Lawrence." They're right, I'm definitely not, but I have a name of my own. I've also mentioned this on my account before, and on ask.fm back when I had it. If you see this happening, please tell them that's not who I am. Fan of the hunger games, but definitely Alexia.
