In the world of celebrities, a simple night out to dinner with your boyfriend really isn't so simple. And when you're a worldwide, A-list, Academy Award-winning actress, it's even harder. Jennifer Lawrence witnessed this first hand when she and her boyfriend, Nicholas Hoult, were caught in a swarm of paparazzi after leaving a restaurant in London last night, April 24. 

After hopping in a pink cab, the actress presumably grew so fed up with the harassment from photographers that she decided to flip them the bird. While we don't know what exactly prompted the gesture -- it could have just been the sheer annoyance of being swarmed by the paps -- J. Law did not look happy as the taxi drove away. Not that we could blame her, of course! Check out the photos of Lawrence giving the middle finger to paparazzi below.

Jennifer Lawrence gives the paparazzi a steel glare as she pointedly gives them the middle finger from the back of the car. J. Law means business, but it looks like her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult preferred that she rather not give the paps even more ammo, as he is seen with his hand on her wrist, seemingly attempting to pull her hand down.

Despite her attempt to thwart the photographers, the paparazzi still managed to get a close-up of the actress as she flips them the bird from her car. The usually-genial star looks dead serious in the photo, so you know she must have been pissed.
