It’s official; Jennifer Lawrence has won over the world, blue-scaly skin and drunken expletives and all. The 23 year-old actress who rests comfortably at number three on our 2013 Pajiba Ten has just been declared this summer’s “Most Liked Summer Celebrity Actress,” in a study conducted as randomly as our own: An entity known only as “The Q Company,” (disappointingly not run by John de Lancie, surveyed a couple thousand people by giving them celebrity names and descriptions, and asked to rank them. Comparatively, we here at P-town present our nominations with completely unbiased* photos and descriptions, and subtly suggest exactly how your should ask you to rank them. While the Q Company’s survey for The Wrap rounded up the top 25 male and the top 25 female actors, I’m just pulling out the top five from each to compare to our own ten.

From a cursory glance at this completely non-scientific data, I’ve deduced we’re not the way to go if you’re trying to round up the hottest big screen moneymakers; look to us purely for the hotties. But, it does seem like the whole darned world agrees JLaw is the shit. On top of everything else, she just kinda purrs her way through the seven-hour Mystique make-up process, despite the fact she’s basically naked and a roomful of people are touching, gluing, painting and working on every inch of her body:

So uh, haters…
