People Are Freaking Out Over How Much This Teen Looks Like Jennifer Lawrence

J-Law is this you?!

As far as we know, Jennifer Lawrence has two brothers. No sisters. And we believed her, until we saw this picture.

Alexia Maier has recently popped up all over the place on social media, and although she's currently 17, she's definitely 100% Lawrence's long lost twin sister.

In fact, she looks so similar to the actress that she could stand in for any of J-Law's roles and we probably wouldn't notice.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, the teenage model said she often gets stopped in the street by people who think she's the Oscar winner.

“At first I thought it was a joke when people started saying I looked like Jennifer Lawrence. But when I started getting dozens of comments about my J-Law similarities, I started to realize it myself," she said.

Even though Maier is quick to tell people that she's not, in fact, the real Jennifer Lawrence, people don't often believe her. And because Lawrence herself isn't a fan of selfies, we can understand why this would seem even more in character.

Luckily for Maier, she doesn't get as much attention in the streets as the real Jennifer Lawrence - just when she visits big cities.

“In my hometown, people know they’re not going to see a real celebrity, so I’ve been told I look like her, but never confused,” she said. “But when visiting New York, people will ask me for autographs.”

Would the real J-Law please stand up?
