It's official: Everybody loves Jennifer Lawrence.

At least, according to TheWrap.com, which dubbed the 23-year-old X-Men star the most-liked summer movie actress.

Looking at the leading ladies of the summer's biggest films, the website ranked them by Q Score, a metric used in Hollywood to quantify how favorably audiences respond to celebrities.

Sure, Lawrence seems like a shoo-in – she carries a huge young adult franchise, has already won an Oscar and is a late-night favorite – but the list's No. 2 may come as a surprise.



Tammy's Melissa McCarthy scored just two points behind Lawrence, showing Gilmore Girls's Sookie has come a long way from comedic sidekick to bonafide movie star. And Angelina Jolie proved it's good to be bad, finishing third for Maleficent.

Coach-surfing, clay-eating free spirit Shailene Woodley tied for fifth place with Amy Poehler, though TheWrap called her Q Score "unstable" because she didn't make any waves in last summer's flicks.



And fellow action star Emma Stone falls in the eighth spot for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 alongside Mila Kunis, Charlize Theron and Drew Barrymore.

The least-liked summer movie actress? Rosario Dawson, who came in at No. 23 with Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. To be fair, TheWrap notes, Dawson's last qualifying role was in 2010, so she has some catching up to do.
