And Jennifer Lawrence thought the Internet was scary.

The Hunger Games star was mobbed by fans following her appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman in New York City on Wednesday night. Lawrence went over to sign autographs and take pictures when her admirers got a little too eager and pushed over the barrier that was set up to separate them from the actress.

Jen's security team whisked her away before anyone could get too close, but the 24-year-old Oscar winner didn't seem fazed by the incident. She kept her composure and smiled all while being hauled off by bodyguards.

Lawrence made sure to go out of her way to greet fans upon her exit because they booed her earlier in the day when she first arrived at Letterman and didn't have time to stop. (Side note: We would have applauded her — the tight red dress she wore as she entered was a knockout.)

When chatting with the talk show host, Jen was her usual adorable self. Wearing a black Alexander Wang top and skirt, the actress turned on the charm to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Apparently there is a scene in the upcoming flick, which required J Law to sing.

“I do not like singing in front of other people. It’s like my biggest fear,” Lawrence said. “I cried on set that day and apparently I’m crying all the time. That was awful. I’m like scarred from my childhood because I have a southern mother who would just tell me that I was amazing at everything, that I could do everything. But, I can’t.”

Hey, at least she is pretty amazing at keeping her cool with dozens of people trying to come her way.
