It's been a good week for Jennifer Lawrence, after Ryan Collins was sentenced to 18 months in prison following the Celebgate hacking scandal. To celebrate, Lawrence made an appearance at Los Angeles' Britannia Awards, presenting an award to Jodie Foster who she later tipped to run for US president.

Celebrating British talent and Hollywood stars with a "strong connection" to the UK film industry, the ceremony boasted a host of A-list talent, such as Ewan McGregor, Ricky Gervais, Felicity Jones and director Ang Lee.

As Foster was honoured by Bafta Los Angeles with the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for excellence in film, Lawrence hailed fellow Oscar-winner for her portrayal in the Silence Of The Lambs – a role which Law observed as "breaking down barriers" in Hollywood.

The Hunger Games actress said: "Jodie once said to me: 'One day you'll look back at the choices you made as an actor and it will reflect something that was going on in your personal life'. Well I did and the consistent theme in all of my characters was they were all white trash with too much responsibility. When you think about it, it's completely true.

"Whereas Jodie's, I see a brave woman in a scary place. It reminded me of a woman who went behind the lines and started directing when it was not trendy for women to do such a thing."

Introducing Jodie to the stage, Lawrence added: "Please welcome my vote for the next president of the United States."

The Beverly Hilton Hotel extravaganza was hosted by British actor and comedian Ben "Doc Brown" Smith. Foster was joined at the ceremony by wife, photographer Alexandra Hedison and from the stage she said: "I can look to my wife Alex and say, 'This is what I get to do for a living'. "Thank you for letting me stick around and I'm not done yet."
