Lawrence was born in 1990 in Louisville, Kentucky. She started acting at the local theatre at a very early age and by the time she got to her early teens she was already working with an agent in New York. She started in commercials and also landed a number of minor roles. The first role that brought her recognition was in the Bill Engvall Show, but the breakthrough came a bit later, in 2010, with her performance in Winter’s Bone – a part that brought about her first Oscar nomination as well.
Her most notable role so far is certainly that of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Game series. Her salary for the first episode was "only" $500,000, but after the massive, world-wide success of the movie, her payments sky-rocketed.
The Hunger Game was a hit, but what brought Jennifer Lawrence the Academy Award and the Golden Globe Award in the Best Actress category was Silver Linings Playbook, a romantic comedy-drama in which she played with Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro and Chris Tucker.
Lawrence has shown her talent not only in Hollywood productions, but in independent films as well. In 2011 her Like Crazy premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, then her fans could see her in The Beaver with Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster and in the role of Mystique, an evil shape-shifter in X-Men: First Class.
In 2013 she was cast in American Hustle next to Christian Bale and in 2014 she returned to the big screen in the role of Mystique in X-Men: Days of the Future. She also appears in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I and Part II not only as an actress, but being featured in the musical score of the first part, too.
The future has a lot in store for Lawrence. In 2016 the audience will see her as Mistique one more time in X-Men: Apocalypse and she also started working on a screenplay that will certainly highlight her talents as a comedy writer. She has been repeatedly compared to Meryl Streep, both in terms of personality and talent – small wonder she is one of the most sought-after young talents in Hollywood today.
