A 30-year-old Jennifer Lawrence mega fan has undergone six plastic surgeries and spent more than $25,000 to look just like the “American Hustle” star.

“I’m not trying to look like Pamela Anderson here during her ‘Baywatch’ days,” the woman who goes only by Kitty told ABC News’ “Nightline.”

“I’m trying to look like a very capable, very personal level-headed female who is an Academy Award winner,” she said.

Kitty spent four weeks at First Surgical Hospital in Houston n February, receiving liposuction to her face and body, a breast augmentation, rhinoplasty and fat grafts to her cheeks and buttocks.

The $25,000 tab included a discount from Dr. Franklin Rose, Kitty’s surgeon, for appearing on television, ABC News reported.

Mr. Rose said it’s a common practice for patients to bring in images of celebrities they’d like to emulate, and it’s relatively easy to spot a patient who isn’t psychologically capable of undergoing cosmetic surgery.

“By this point in my career, after evaluating 14-15,000 new consultations, you can tell very quickly within a matter of a minute if the patient is well adjusted or not well adjusted for whatever the procedure they might present,” he said.

Kitty, who is also a wife and mother to a 5-year-old daughter, said motherhood helped drive her to the decision.

“The reason why I decided to get surgery is because post having my daughter, I wasn’t quite as comfortable with my body,” she told Nightline. “I don’t think you have to be crazy to want to look better or feel better about yourself. That’s not crazy.”

“I am a strong woman,” she said. “I am in charge of how I look and I can change that and then change that again if I want.”
