Although Jennifer Lawrence was born in the town of Kentucky, a trip to New York City was needed to be “discovered” when a man approached a 14-year-old Lawrence and her mother on Union Square.
“My mother gave him her number because she didn’t know it was potentially dangerous and creepy, and then he called and said modeling agencies wanted to meet me,” she told MTV News in 2015. “And I decided the taxi ride, I was like , “Well, I’m only going to sign at a modeling agency if they let me trade.” Who came from nowhere … I was already negotiating. “
Two years after that ill-fated encounter, Jennifer Lawrence earned her first IMDb credit with an appearance on the Monk TV show in 2006. A few minor roles later, and Lawrence got her first lead – seen in 31 episodes of The Bill Engvall Show.
She got her big break in 2010 in the independent crime drama Winter’s Bone, where she played a young woman looking for her missing father while living in terrible poverty in the Ozark Mountains. The film was a critical hit and Lawrence earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.
But there is no world fame in indie dramas. So after the success of that movie, J-Law went to Hollywood, starring the big blockbusters X-Men: First Class and Hunger Games. By the time she played Katniss Everdeen for the last time in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Mockingjay Part 2 in 2015, Jennifer Lawrence was a household name.
During her short career so far, Jennifer Lawrence has already won two Academy Awards: Best actress for the 2012 Silver Linings Playbook and Best supporting actress for the 2013 American Hustle. She has also made a serious couch. In particular, $ 130 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Jennifer Lawrence is only 29 at the time of writing, so we expect to see Lawrence on the silver screen for decades to come.
