At the age of 14, she had already made the decision to pursue a career in acting, and she successfully convinced her parents to take her to New York City so that she could look for a talent agent.

She finished high school two years early and with a grade point average of 3.9 out of 4.0; she plans to pursue a career in acting. While she was still a youngster and in between acting roles, Lawrence worked at the summer day camp for children that her parents owned. She characterized her role there as being similar to that of an assistant nurse.


Jennifer Lawrence Career

The Bill Engvall Show on TBS was where Lawrence made her acting debut. There, she played the role of Lauren Pearson, the eldest daughter in the Pearson family. The series premiered in September 2007 and ran for three seasons. Actors on the show, including Lawrence, won a Young Artist Award for Outstanding Young Performers in a TV Series, and Lawrence was nominated for Best Performance in a TV Series (Comedy or Drama) (Comedy or Drama).

In 2008, Lawrence made her film debut with a minor role in Garden Party, followed by a starring role in Lori Petty’s family drama The Poker House, portraying a young victim of abuse. She was awarded the Los Angeles Film Festival Award for Outstanding Performance for her role in the latter film. She next appeared in Guillermo Arriaga’s directorial feature debut The Burning Plain (2008), opposite Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger. Her performance earned her the Marcello Mastroianni Award for Best Emerging Actress at the Venice Film Festival. She also appeared in the music video for the song “The Mess I Made” by Parachute.



Many people consider the lead role that Jennifer Lawrence played in Debra Granik’s film Winter’s Bone (2010), which took home the award for Best Picture at the Sundance Film Festival, to be her breakthrough performance. She portrays a 17-year-old in the Ozark Mountains who cares for her mentally ill mother and younger siblings while searching for her missing father. Her performance was highly acclaimed by film critics. David Denby of The New Yorker said the film “would be unimaginable with anyone less charismatic playing Ree.” Peter Travers from Rolling Stone opined that “her performance is more than acting, it’s a gathering storm. Lawrence’s eyes are a roadmap to what’s tearing Ree apart.” Lawrence was awarded the National Board of Review Award for Best Breakthrough Performance and received a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actress.



In 2011, Lawrence co-starred in the independent film Like Crazy, which premiered at the 27th Sundance Film Festival, and she appeared in The Beaver, a dark comedy starring Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson. The second film was finished production in 2009 but was never released because of the controversy surrounding Gibson. In the film X-Men: First Class (2011), which is a prequel to the X-Men film series that has already been released, she also starred alongside James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender. She portrayed the shape-shifting villain Mystique, played by Rebecca Romijn in earlier X-Men films. First Class was a commercial success, earning $353.6 million at the international box office. Lawrence joined the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences that year.


In 2012, Lawrence starred as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins. Despite being a fan of the books, Lawrence took three days to accept the role because she was initially intimidated by the size of the film and how it might affect her career. She underwent extensive training for the role, including archery, rock and tree climbing, and combat. With international revenues of $691.2 million, The Hunger Games became the first major box office hit ($350 million and up) built around a female action star,  marking Lawrence as the highest-grossing action heroine. Though the film generally received positive reviews, Lawrence’s portrayal of Katniss was particularly praised. Todd McCarthy from The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Lawrence embodies Katniss “just as one might imagine her from the novel,” and “anchors” the film “with impressive gravity and presence,” ultimately calling her “the ideal screen actress.” Chicago Sun-Times film critic Roger Ebert agreed that “Lawrence is strong and convincing in the central role.”



Lawrence portrays a young widow in David O. Russell’s Silver Linings Playbook (2012), an adaption of the novel of the same name by Matthew Quick, with Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro. She received critical praise for her performance, with Richard Corliss of Time writing, “Just 21 when the movie was shot, Lawrence is that rare young actress who plays, who is, grown-up. Sullen and sultry, she lends a mature intelligence to any role.” Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers wrote that Lawrence “is some kind of miracle. She’s rude, dirty, funny, foulmouthed, sloppy, sexy, vibrant, and vulnerable, sometimes all in the same scene, even in the same breath.” She won the Golden Globe Award and Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in the film, becoming the second-youngest Best Actress Oscar winner at age 22. Lawrence also played alongside Max Thieriot and Elisabeth Shue in Mark Tonderai’s thriller House at the End of the Street (2012). (2012). She became the face of fashion house Dior in October 2012.


The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the second film in the Hunger Games trilogy, and it was released in 2013. Jennifer Lawrence reprised her role as Katniss Everdeen in this film. It was a major commercial success, with box office earnings of $864.9 million. Lawrence’s performance earned praise; Stephanie Zacharek of The Village Voice wrote that Lawrence was “both on fire and in the process of becoming, and it’s magnificent to watch.” She next took a supporting role in David O. Russell’s crime drama American Hustle (2013) as the wife of a con man portrayed by Christian Bale. Based on the FBI’s ABSCAM operation, the film is set against the backdrop of political corruption in 1970s New Jersey and also stars Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, and Jeremy Renner. Lawrence’s performance was praised by the media, which led to her receiving a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA Award, and a nomination for a third Academy Award. This would be her first nomination for a supporting role at the Academy Awards, making her the youngest actress to ever receive three nominations.



Lawrence replaced Angelina Jolie in Susanne Bier’s depression-era drama Serena, based on the novel of the same name by Ron Rash. She played the titular character, an unstable woman who learns that she can never have children with her husband, played by Bradley Cooper. Serena was completed in 2012, and was finally published in 2014 to dismal reviews. In 2014, Lawrence again played Mystique in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which grossed $748.1 million worldwide, and reprised her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the first half of a two-part dramatization of the final Hunger Games novel. For the musical score of the latter film, she was featured on the song “The Hanging Tree”, which reached the top 40 on multiple international singles charts. The film was a box office success, grossing $751.9 million worldwide.

Joy, the third project that Lawrence has worked on with David O. Russell, is expected to be released in the year 2015. She portrays the titular character, Joy Mangano, the inventor of the Miracle Mop. She is also set to appear in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 and X-Men: Apocalypse.
