Cape Town - A Jennifer Lawrence lookalike is thanking strangers for spotting her uncanny similarity to the A-list celebrity.

Alexia Maier (17) had no idea she was Jennifer Lawrence's doppelganger until strangers began mistaking her for the Hunger Games actress.

At first Alexia, who’s a model, thought it was a joke!

That was until she started receiving dozens of stares and comments when she was out and about.

Alexia, from Ponte Vedra, Florida, has left many strangers confused after they were convinced she's the real Jennifer Lawrence.

"In my hometown, people know they're not going to see a real celebrity, so I've been told I look like her, but I’ve never been confused for her.

"But when visiting New York, people will ask me for autographs. I think one of my favourite examples is when a woman said 'Jennifer, I'm your biggest fan!’

"I told her, 'I'm not Jennifer!' but the woman immediately said, 'are you sure?' I'll never forget her reaction,” said Alexia.

Alexia says the woman was surprised at first, and then in awe of her but was eventually disappointed.

Despite her uncanny resemblance to J-Law, Alexia is actually not a fan of the actress.

"I know this isn’t the answer people are expecting from me, but I’m not a fan. Even so, I can acknowledge that Jennifer has definitely impacted my life in strange ways.

"I got a lot of attention in the first couple of years of high school because of my similarities to her.

"I was also subjected to a lot of online attention when I was pretty young, good and bad, but both have managed to help shape me as a person."
