Jennifer Lawrence is a big, big fan of 7-year-old TLC reality star Alana Thompson.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno Nov. 19, the actress admitted to causing a car accident "a few weeks ago" in Georgia, where she's currently filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

"I was driving home from work and I thought I saw Honey Boo Boo," the Silver Linings Playbook star, 22, explained. "It was a breast cancer parade. Now I know it said 'boobs' on [their shirts], but I thought it said 'boo boo.' So I was like, 'Does that mean it's Honey Boo Boo?'"


Lawrence continued: "I started craning my neck, and then I saw a little girl and was like, 'That's Honey Boo Boo!' I was still driving and then I rear-ended the person in front of me."

VIDEO: Remember this Hunger Games scene?

The worst part, Lawrence said, was fessing up to what happened. "I had to get out of the car and explain what happened," she said. "I was like, 'I'm sorry that I hit your family. I thought I saw Honey Boo Boo.'"
