The highest-paid and most powerful actress in the world, with her films grossing
over $5.5 billion worldwide, JENNIFER LAWRENCE is often cited as the most
successful actor of her generation.
Her big break came when she played Ree in Winter's Bone (2010), which landed her
Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations. Shortly thereafter, she secured the
role of Mystique in franchise reboot X-Men: First Class (2011), which went on to
be a hit in Summer 2011. Around this time, Lawrence scored the role of a
lifetime when she was cast as Katniss Everdeen in the big-screen adaptation of
literary sensation The Hunger Games (2012). The film went on to become one of
the highest-grossing movies ever with over $407 million at the domestic box
office, and instantly propelled Lawrence to the A-list among young
actors/actresses. Three Hunger Games sequels were released in each consecutive
November, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay -
Part 1 (2014), and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (2015), with Lawrence
reprising her role.
In 2012, the romantic comedy, Silver Linings Playbook earned her the Academy
Award, Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, Satellite Award and the
Independent Spirit Award for Best Actress, among other accolades, making her the
youngest person ever to be nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Actress and
the second-youngest Best Actress winner.
She starred in David O. Russell's popular drama-comedy American Hustle (2013),
as Roselyn Rosenfield, and teamed with the director again to play inventor Joy
Mangano in another family comedy, Joy (2015), receiving Oscar nominations for
both roles (Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, respectively).
