Jennifer wore a dark plaid long-sleeved shirt over a black T-shirt while visiting patients and staff.
She had her blonde hair pulled back into a loose ponytail and accentuated her natural beauty with just a hint of makeup.
Jennifer beamed while taking a group photo with nearly a dozen hospital staffers as she made the visit, which has become an annual affair in recent years.
‘Louisville’s own Jennifer Lawrence stopped by Norton Children’s today to visit with patients, families, and staff. This visit has become a tradition for Lawrence each Christmas. Thank you, Jennifer! You sure do bring a smile to all!,’ Norton Children’s Hospital posted on Facebook along with photos of her visit.

Jennifer was raised in Louisville by her mother Karen and father Gary who together ran a children’s day camp.
She was an assistant nurse at their children’s camp before finding fame as an actress.
Jennifer donated $2 million to the hospital in 2016 to build the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation Cardiac Intensive Care Unit for children recovering from heart procedures, open-heart surgery, heart failure and other conditions requiring intensive care.
