Jennifer Lawrence has had a pretty wild past couple of years. From blockbuster hits to her illicit cell phone pictures being stolen and revealed to the entire world in 2014, JLaw has been on a roller coaster but has continued to remain steadfast in her pursuance of Hollywood success. Controversy aside, she’s bringing home the bread – in fact, Forbes has ranked her the highest paid actress in the world bringing in a whopping $52 million per film.

Best known for her powerful roles in The Hunger Games trilogy in addition to her 2013 role in American Hustle; The 24 year old actress and internet sensation has come a long way since her first major role on the Bill Engvall show. Born in Louisville Kentucky in 1990, JLaw enjoyed softball, cheerleading, modeling and awesomely enough Field Hockey! However, after getting bored with her wicked good athleticism she decided to head to NYC to set up a few auditions with a few modeling agencies. It was not long before her talents were noticed by an agent who later connected her with the then-hit MTV series, “My Super Sweet 16” and some other commercial appearances in which inevitably paved the way for her to pursue her acting career.

Now 23 years old, JLaw’s migration from the BlueGrass region of Kentucky to the Big Apple has now secured her an Academy Award, three Golden Globes, two Screen Actors Guild Award, Four Critic’s Choice Movie Awards, an Independent Spirit Award, a Venice Film Festival Award, Palm Springs International Film festival Award, Saturn Award, a Satellite Award, and was even named Associated Press’ Entertainer of the Year for 2013! In 2014, Jennifer racked up a slew of awards including another Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actreess for her role in Hunger Games.

    The story written on Jennifer Lawrence is notable for its glaring oversight on the actress’s Best Actress of the Year award for Silver Lining Playbook. Instead, you say she is best known for the Hunger Games??? Yes there is a drive by reference to her Academy award but really the whole comment loses all credibility with the omission.

    • tdott71

      Are you saying she is not best known for her Hunger Games role? Then to claim loss of credibility because you falsely believe she is better known for her role in silver lining, which was a good movie but definitely not as widely seen as hunger games, is just plain dumb.

      • lawyerjcr .

        Yeah “dumb” she is better known for Silver Lining . That was her star turn and she won for best actress which is the highest award an American actress can attain. And since you obviously missed my point – the piece didn’t even mention Silver Linings. That was the point bro.. To miss that was just plain dumb.

        • Jim Brashear

          Negative. Her most famous role was Hunger Games as evidenced by the box office record ticket sales. Yes she won an award for Silver Lining, that does not equate to gained more fame from that role. Johnny Depp has never for instance won an Academy Award, but even if he were to win one now that would not equate to being the reason he is famous.

        • Jimbo

          I’ve never seen the Hunger Games and don’t intend to watch. Saw the trailers and thought it looked idiotic. I did see SLP and enjoyed it very much. As for the Oscar, I think it is a virtual insult. The Oscars are nothing more than a popularity contest, for who is currently the best at lobbying the other twits in Hollyweird.

        • calboy147

          You apparently have no grasp of the English language. The writer said she is “known” for her role in HG; not that it was her best role.

    • calboy147

      You are an arrogant self indulgent wanna be movie critic; but you cannot comprehend the difference between winning an award and be well known.
      In the scale of box office winners; (which is where stars become known) Hunger Games makes Winters Bone, and Silver Lining Playbook seem like independent short films.

  • Ryan

    She IS best ‘known’ for the Hunger Games. Yes, she won the award for a different movie, but the word ‘known’ indicates the reason the general public is familiar with the person. That movie is ‘Hunger Games’. Quit being a pedantic asshole.

    • NoneBuriedDeeper

      I have to agree with Lawyerjcr. I don’t know her from Hunger games. I know here from Silver Lining Playbook and all the press she received from he Academy Award nomination and win. I didn’t check out her teen movie until afterwards. Hunger Games while popular was a boring movie that never lived up to its potential.

      • JeromeWeeks

        And no one seems to have seen ‘Winter’s Bone’ – a chilling film about an impoverished backwoods girl whose father has disappeared because of his meth connections. She tries to hold the family together and defy the all-powerful local gang/clan of relatives. Lawrence is awesome in it and it’s unlike anything else she’s done.

        • MarcusB

          Please understand the difference between ‘known’ and ‘best’. That should put this entire debate into perspective.

        • Robert Wagers

          I saw it when it came out and wondered who that great young actress was. I guess I found out!

        • calboy147

          I saw it; kinda enjoyed it. But since you and i are one of the 22 people around the world who saw it, she
          ain’t known for that”.

      • calboy147

        Doesn’t really matter that YOU do not know her from hunger games; or that YOU do not like that particular movie. Jennifer Lawrence was known for her work in Hunger Games. Now she is as well known for her self deprecating attitude and likeable behavior towards others as much as her movie roles.

    • Chaz

      I found her in an independent called “The Poker House” which could have qualified for an award, and then “Winter’s Bone”. It was easy to see how good she was.

    • Greg Giggie

      for me it’s still the 2 TV shows I’ve seen her in, both of which I don’t like, Medium & Bill Engvall show, I honestly don’t know why those shows were on to even seen her in them

  • Martin Vesole

    I loved the Hunger Games and her role in it. Anyone who could pull that off has my admiration. The fact she could pull off all the other roles mentioned above and below are even more to her credit. She is the real thing.

    I saw Jennifer in Hunger games before I read the next two books, Catching Fire and MockingJay part 1 and 2.which are already completed with the exception of the remake of part two ending because of Phillips overdose. RIP I later saw Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, and of course, she was awesome as Mystique in X-Men. My point is after seeing her in the first two parts of Hunger games, I could visualize her face and her moves as I was reading the books. Her parts have all been totally different, it will be impossible to type cast her she is so talented. She is fantastic in every role I’ve seen of her. I think Hollywood is going to Jack her up for American Hustle though, the movie can’t win every Academy Award, they just won’t do it no matter how good she is. Unless maybe the movie doesn’t win any of the other awards it’s nominated for. I’m looking forward to the rest of her career because quite frankly, I don’t see any other actress out there that can transform herself into such a diverse role like Lawrence can. She is a thing of beauty which makes her abilities to act so much more rare. I'[m going to track down “Winters Bone like someone said she was good in. I’ve never heard of that movie. Thanks!

  • Doug

    I have to say, the reason I think Jennifer is amazing is her very funny and down to earth persona in her interviews.

      And shes a very nice looking young woman

    My first try at serious writing happened in 2007 when I wrote what I thought was a good, short Si-Fi With “Why Mark Evans went to the moon”. The person I wrote it for said it was a good “Character description”, or words to that effect, but, it wasn’t a movie.

    So, I used Mark Evans as the hero in “Colonel Freedom” a sort of dorky name. Mark Evans trying to be a “Super hero”, because the person I wrote it for had always wanted to have, a “Neighborhood super hero” movie. I forgot the “Neighborhood” she put on as her own limited idea. I could not get myself to think that narrow. Even the show, “Person of Interest” limits itself to NYC, most of the time, and if they go our of town it is on an excursion which, in the show, only brings the plot back to NYC. Too narrow for me. The Lady I wrote “Colonel Freedom” (Capt. America, Superman, Spiderman, (who is only a shy high school boy) etc. were all taken) Perhaps you know someone who could be looking for a superior Political Sci-Fi effort, with real stuff woven in… like, — well, here is a small clip from my screen play to show you how I used real happenings at the time this was written to date it, and to further the storyline.

    Victor Weinstein, Ex Commissar
    of the once Glorious Georgia
    Cossacks. Black Hair, combed straight
    from the front to the back and down to the neck, where it is cut off in a
    straight line at the base of the neck.
    Piercing Brown eyes, set close to the nose which is thin and angular.
    5’9” tall, athletic build. 44 yrs old.

    Phone
    conversation starts with a close single of Otto on his cell phone, then, when
    Victor speaks, shifts to him in the Street front patio of a café in Marseilles, France,
    and becomes a double with a line down the middle.

    Outside,
    evening, street side patio of a Café.

    Victor

    Mein Herr Einmann!
    Otto! It is good to hear your
    voice once again!

    Look, I’ve GOT the suitcases. Oh My God, it was awful! I was just about to enter the port city of Poti and get aboard a
    Cruise liner with 5 of my friends, when the Russian invasion started in South Ossetia and they bombed our Biggest Black Sea
    Port too. Fortunately, the Russian troops had not made
    it this far west on the ground yet, and I was able to sneak across the border
    to Turkey,
    with the merchandise.

    Otto interrupts, very apprehensive

    Victor, the bo- suit cases, are, are they intact?
    How many do you have? Will they suit our purpose? Your friends? What do they know?

    Victor, in re-assuring tones

    Yes, Yes, old friend, they are! I was able to “liberate” all 6. They are in good working order. The friends know nothing. They all split when they heard Poti had been
    bombed. I was just using them as a
    cover. I told them they were to each
    carry one of the suitcases on board, and that they would tell the purser, if
    asked, they had party stuff in them.

    Otto
    Ach, Gut!
    Where are you now?

    Victor

    Fortunately for you, my friend, I am in Marseilles! I’ll be on my way through Lyon
    to Frankfurt in the morning.
    I will need a girl like you to play Jillian Evans, the international news reporter with a .38 Magnum holstered on each hip… You would do.
    Here’s my E-mail address, if you want to read the whole script. I know it’s in the rough, but, with a polished screen writer, excellent director, the right kind of camera men, etc, I am sure we can make this movie all on local sets, with only far photos of far away places and such close-in shots of the action, it could be done in downtown San Diego, or Marseilles, and no one who wasn’t a native of the town would know the difference.
    If you are really interested, call me at (858) 566-7786.

  • Lawrence Vanburen

    jennifer whats up how can we talk

  • nucjunkie

    If Lawrence can continue to hone her natural abilities for acting, she may get away with a junk food addiction like Shelly Winters did. That she is headed to the fat side is obvious, bur being a skinny fox is not necessary to sincerity.

    Lupita Nyong’o, Jennifer Lawrence and many other highly talented actors are acclaimed for their intensity. An interviewer wrote: “All throughout our lunch, the part of Lawrence that never let up was a kind of intense engagement with the world or the person in front of her.” http://developingmultipletalents.com/313/intensity-creative/
