The 23-year-old said that the two have been her role models and she would like to live her life like Streep, almost following in her footsteps.
"I don't know if I'd necessarily call her an idol or a role model, but someone I admire, who's an incredible actress, is Cate Blanchett. I think she's extraordinary," Lawerence said in a statement.
"Meryl Streep as well, not just because of her acting but because she's Meryl Streep and I'd like to live my life the way she has lived hers.
"The way she went away with her kids, we never saw pictures of her babies. I respect that a lot. And it's not like I'm that way, because generally I want to do tons of things. I want to produce, I want to do this or that and have a heart attack at 25. But she's only an actress and I like that," she added.
Lawrence will be seen as Katniss Everdeen in the sci-fi movie "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", that releases in India Nov 29.
It also stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth.
