Jennifer Lawrence Takes Break From ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ To Visit Children’s Hospital

Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t need superpowers to save the day. Sometimes, all she has to do is show up.

The “X-Men: Apocalypse” star stopped by the Shriners Hospital For Children in Montreal on Friday, and posed for pictures with the delighted young patients and workers.

JLaw made her surprise appearance during a break from shooting Bryan Singer’s next superhero blockbuster, due out on May 27, 2016.

“A very special visitor stopped by our Canada hospital today,” the facility wrote on its Facebook page. “Jennifer Lawrence is in Montreal filming a new movie and she made time to visit some of our #ShrinersCanada kids and staff. Everyone had a great time!”

Shriners shared a number of heart-warming shots of the Oscar winner’s visit, including one in which she’s signing a child’s arm cast. Others show her kneeling next to a little boy in a wheelchair, and smiling with the nurses and staff members.

“You never know who might visit @ShrinersCanada,” the hospital Tweeted, alongside an additional peek of Jennifer’s time at the facility.

The actress’ sweet gesture adds to a recent trend of celebrities volunteering their time to kids in need.

As previously reported on, the cast of “Ghostbusters” popped in to the children’s wing of Tufts Medical Center in Boston on Aug. 1 while wearing their costumes from set.

Kylie Jenner also gave back during what she called the “first stop” of her birthday celebration. The reality star turns 18 on Aug. 10, and posted an Instagram shot on Friday from inside the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
