Despite what Joan Rivers thinks of her, The Hunger Games star brightened the children’s day when she dropped by on December 22nd. No one in the hospital expected her presence and she was spotted with a very casual plaid shirt and jeans at the hospital.

Photos that were taken that day showed that she had spread the holiday cheer to ill kids in the hospital. In one of the shots, she was spotted holding hands with a young boy in a U.S. army-themed hospital room.
