Jennifer Lawrence made an emotional fan very happy at the premiere of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" in London when she stopped on the red carpet to greet the child, who was in a wheelchair.

Videos of the encounter were posted on YouTube and on the website of the UK newspaper The Daily Mail (watch below).

The 23-year-old actress, wearing a long, bright red coat over a white Christian Dior Fall 2013 gown with multicolored, speckled embellishments, is seen kneeling in front of what appears to be a sobbing little girl in a wheelchair. An adult woman snaps a photo of the two with a cell phone and the actress then hugs the child.

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is set for release in the United States on Nov. 22. Lawrence reprises her role as heroine Katniss Everdeen. The fantasy-action movie also stars returning actors Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks.

Check out the videos of Jennifer Lawrence comforting the child fan below as well as an interview with the actress on the red carpet at the premiere.
