Jennifer Lawrence Visits Shriners Hospital For Children Canada In Montreal, Poses With Fans

Jennifer Lawrence certainly knows how to volunteer as tribute, and she can also surprise her Canadian fans with a visit.

The Oscar winning actress spent some time with the young patients of Shriners Hospital for Children Canada in Montreal on Friday afternoon, while on a break from filming "X-Men: Apocalypse" in the city.

"A very special visitor stopped by our Canada hospital today," read a post on the Shriners Canada 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!"

Lawrence not only posed for photos with the children at their bedsides and signed their casts, but she also yo-yoed with a young boy and spent time with the clinic's medical team. The 24-year-old's surprise visit was chronicled in the 21 photos shared on the hospital's official Facebook page on Friday.

But, this isn't the first time the "Hunger Games" star spent a day with her younger fans at a health care facility. For the past two years, Lawrence stopped by Kosair Children's Hospital in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky around Christmas Eve to share some festive cheer with the patients.

The actress will next hit the big screen in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" — the final film in the Katniss Everdeen franchise — in November, and reunites with her "Silver Linings Playbook" and "American Hustle" director David O. Russell with "Joy," due out on Christmas Day.
