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.
In her role in the 2013 American Hustle, Jennifer Lawrence plays as the unpredictable wife of Christian Bale. Bale and Amy Adams play two con artists whom are forced to work as informants during a sting operation for the FBI to reveal corrupt politicians. Since it’s release in December 2013, American Hustle has received ten Academy Awards including Best Original Screenplay, Best Picture, Best Director, and three Golden Globe Awards.
Career accolades aside, JLaw did not earn a spot on whosthebomb.com list by simply being an incredible Hollywood actress. I mean, who really can slip and fall while receiving an Oscar Award and still look hot? Better yet, flick off the heckling photographer in dismay after the show? JLaw’s love for food has been highly publicized in her outspoken comments on Conan O’brien, interviews at the Golden Globes and in her latest stint of awesomeness by decorating (almost ruining) one of her American Hustle dresses in Dorito crumbs. Regardless whether she has a mouth full of cooler ranch Doritos or breath stinking of Grandma’s famous meatloaf, Jennifer Lawrence is still the bomb.com.
J-Law’s rise to prominence has been breathtaking. It wasn’t long agosince her Oscar-nominated breakthrough as a teenager struggling to keep her family together while searching for her father in the Ozark highland backwoods in 2010’s Winter Bone. Now, she sits on top of Forbes annual list of the highest paid female actresses in the world. Thanks to her lucrative roles made famous by The Hunger Games and X-Men movies, the 25-year old Jennifer Lawrence is now bringing home the bread. A whopping $52 million pre-tax over 12 months makes her not only the highest paid actress in the world, but by a long shot with Scarlett Johansson coming in second with a mere $35.5 million per film.
Jennifer Lawrence is talented, beautiful, easy going and does not subject herself to the Hollywood cliche’. And for that, we love you Jen.
