Julia Roberts Talks Jennifer Lawrence: Battle Of The Sweethearts

When it comes to the title of "America's Sweetheart," Julia Roberts has had it in the bag for years. Perhaps it's the all-around approachable vibe, the inimitable laugh, or wry wit — whatever it is, the girl's got sweetheart staying power. Recently, though, the 46-year-old icon has had some company on that pedestal, with Jennifer Lawrence at her side. Lawrence, America's BFF, has shot straight to the center of the general population's hearts — even if she's everywhere promoting movies or showing up in GIF form.

We'll see how it all goes down on the red carpet — or, in J Lawr's case, possibly on the way up to the stage. (MTV)
