Even though Kim Kardashian idolizes Cher, the reality TV mogul has another actress in mind for her imaginary biopic. In a recent interview with Extra, Kardashian revealed who would play her in a movie. And of course, she chose a friend of the family. Well, she didn’t really choose her, but Extra‘s Mark Wright asked if Jennifer Lawrence could portray Kim K. And Kardashian’s response? “Of course she could. She’s the best actress.”
As we know, Lawrence reciprocates Kim Kardashian’s admiration for her, as she has spoken about her Kardashian obsession many times in interviews. In early November, Lawrence got to publicly fawn over Kim when she interviewed the reality TV star while guest hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live. Their interview went where every fan hoped it would. They covered everything from Reggie Bush’s wife — who looks suspiciously similar to his ex, Kim — to the last time Kardashian spoke to O.J. Simpson. Oh yeah, they went there.
When Wright brought up Lawrence in his interview with Kardashian, the soon-to-be mother of three said, “She’s so funny.” It certainly seems like the two have had some laugh-out-loud-funny times together, including the time that Lawrence got naked in Kris Jenner’s closet while having dinner at the matriarch’s home. It seems like Lawrence could portray a Kardashian and all of the family’s crazy antics in a movie.
Considering that Lawrence knows everything about the Kardashians, she’s probably the best actress to play Kim in a movie.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Lawrence explained that she built a Kardashian tent to escape the psychological demands of filming mother!. “The Kardashians are more comforting to me [than the casts of The Real Housewives], I think,” Lawrence said. “I’ve been watching them for 11 years, so I grew up with them, and I know all of them personally.”
When she puts it that way, it sounds like Lawrence should probably have someone portray herself in the not-actually-happening-that-we-know-of Kim Kardashian biopic. Her interview with Kim should probably be in the movie, after all.

The conversation turns to Lawrence around the 1:40 mark.
And of course, you can re-live the greatness of Kardashian and Lawrence talking about literally everything on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
It was so good.
Perhaps Kardashian could play Lawrence and Lawrence could play Kardashian in the movie re-enactment of that great interview. If they were to switch roles, though, Kardashian would need to drink a lot of coffee to match Lawrence’s high energy level.
Of course, this is all hypothetical right now. A Kim Kardashian biopic isn’t in the works — as far as we know. If Kris Jenner is up to her old tricks, though, it could already be in the making right now, and you really would never know. If it is, Lawrence would make a great Kim K.
