Jennifer Lawrence Biography
Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Jennifer Lawrence is the daughter of a construction worker father. Lawrence graduated from high school two years early due to excellent grades. She was only 14 when she decided that she would be an actress someday. She spent summers as a nurse’s assistant at the children’s summer camps that her mother ran. At th age of 14 she convinced her parents to take her to New York City to find an agent.
Lawrence got her first acting job doing a comedy series on TBS television in 2007. She was nominated for Best Performance in a TV series award and won the Young Artist Award. Her first film role was in 2008, when she had a small role in a movie called Garden Party. Soon after, she had a starring role in the drama film Poker House. In 2010, Lawrence had a lead role in the movie Winter’s Bone, which won Best Picture at the Sundance Film Festival. This was an important role for Lawrence, but the best was to come for her in 2012 with The Hunger Games.
Lawrence almost did not accept the role in The Hunger Games because she was concerned about how the role might affect her career and how she might prepare for it. However, being a fan of the book, Lawrence decided to take the role. With international revenues of almost $700 million, The Hunger Games became Lawrence’s first major box office hit. That same year, Lawrence also played in the hit movie Silver Linings Playbook, a role that won her an Oscar for Best Actress.
Lawrence is now referred to by many as being Hollywood’s Hottest Ticket. She recently finished The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which was one of 2014’s highest grossing films of the year. At 25 years of age, Lawrence, sometimes referred to as J-Law, can pick and choose which roles she wants to play, not something many actresses her age can afford to do. With a current net worth of $53.9 million dollars, Lawrence is already well on her way towards becoming one of the super-rich stars of the 21st century.
