Jennifer Lawrence Bio

With an Academy Award nomination under her belt, talented young actress Jennifer Lawrence, just landed the lead role in movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ bestselling teen sci-fi thriller, The Hunger Games! Find out more about Jennifer!

Kentucky Chick

Twenty year old Jennifer Lawrence grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, and used to act in church plays when she was small. By the age of fourteen she had decided that she had a passion for acting and convinced her parents to take her to New York City in order to find an agent, she amazed people in her auditions right away, and Jennifer went on to graduate from high school two years early so she could pursue acting.

Rising Star

By 2008, Jennifer was already getting lead roles and receiving praise, specifically for her role in the independent film The Burning Plain. Jennifer earned a Best Emerging Actress Award at the Venice Film Festival for the movie. But don’t think she’s all serious, all the time, anyone who’s seen this firecracker in an interview can tell you that she’s a barrel of laughs, and she proved it by starring in the TBS show The Bill Engvall Show.

I Would Like to Thank The Academy

Although we know she didn’t win, it’s incredible for someone so new to the business to get nominated at the Oscars, and Jennifer was amazed! On the Jimmy Kimmel Show, she admitted to being floored by all the famous people. People called the movie Winter’s Bone her breakout performance, and it looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of this beautiful girl. She’s going to be in the upcoming movie X-Men: First Class as the gorgeous but deadly shape-changer Mystique, and of course, she’s just landed the role that every young actress has been vying for… Katniss in The Hunger Games!

Did You Know…

Jennifer has never taken any professional acting classes, according to her, she just dove right in! What a gutsy girl!
