For TIME magazine's roundup of "The 100 Most Influential People," Jennifer Lawrence wrote a love letter to Adele that, frankly, could easily be signed with full sincerity by the entire free world.
The one Oscar winner wrote of the other,
The way she is able to capture herself, and then in turn us, has turned her into a star that's not a star we look at, but a giant star with its own gravity that we are drawn to… I haven't even gotten started on the voice—how could I? It's once-in-a-lifetime… Her 500-year-old wisdom. Her patience and kindness all wrapped up in the tough skin of a damn gangster… Adele is a gift, an international treasure, but she's also sweet, funny, intelligent and beautiful.
Ahhh! It's all true! We all wish Adele would up and adopt us already and cradle us in her arms through the hard times -- until we realize she's still making it through her 20s, too.
Adele's 4,000-year-old soul is what speaks through her music to the very core of us, making the fact she is, in reality, a timeless musical legend and caring family woman by the age of 27 a hundred times more inspiring.
