Imagine opening a roommate assignment letter from your university to see “Jennifer Lawrence” in big bold letters. OMG. Here are the reasons why you would have hit the jackpot.

1. She’ll Talk Your Ear Off

In seventh grade J.Law was voted Most Talkative, and everyone knows that grade school yearbook superlatives meant business. I know what you’re thinking: who wants a chatty roommate?! Trust me…there ain’t nothin’ worse than a mute roommate. Especially one that will stare at you in silence. Eek.

2. She’d Be Down To Binge Watch Netflix

I don’t trust people that have never binge watched a show on Netflix. How else did you spend winter holiday if you didn’t spend eight hours a day re-watching One Tree Hill? Just me? Okay. Anyway, overly productive roomies make me anxious. Having a roommate to lay around with on Sundays hiding from the world waiting for Chuck to FINALLY propose to Blair is like winning the lottery. Especially if there are snacks involved. Which brings us to our next point…

3. Girl Can EAT

Dieting roommates are the worst. They judge you for housing an entire sleeve of Oreos in one sitting, probably look better in your clothes than you do, and they have NO good food to steal. Nothing says roommate bonding like gossiping over a pint of Ben & Jerrys Phish Food, and Jennifer would be alllll over that. Her clutch at the Oscars this year was stuffed with Slim Jims and Pop Rocks, and last year she kept it classy with a Laffy Taffy, Almond Joy, and almonds  (PLUS she had her publicists make a pit stop at McDonalds for fries). You can’t compete with a roomie that loves to eat.

4. She Takes Quick Bathroom Breaks

J.Law once said in an interview that she is known for being a super-duper speedy pee-er. Trust me this is more important than you realize.  A roommate that hogs the bathroom is no friend of yours.

5. She’s Tight With Her Family

This is extremely important. You will benefit from the care packages, homemade food, and possibly being the plus one on vacations. Bonus points if her family includes cute brothers (Jenny has TWO).

6. She Can Drink

Besides the benefits of a built-in party buddy having a roommate that can hold her liquor is a plus. No one wants to play mom every weekend and take care of a roommate that yet again has had too much to drink.

7. She’s Goofy

While there is nothing wrong with people that sway towards the serious side it’s great to have a goofy and giddy roommate that never fails to laugh at herself, and you. Jennifer would definitely make you laugh when you needed it most.

She also did this. (I’m not exactly sure why it would make her the best roommate, but it JUST WOULD)

Do YOU think Jennifer Lawrence would make the best roommate?
