Jennifer Shrader Lawrence [edit]

(born on August 15, 1990) is an American actress. Her first major role was as a lead cast member on the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show (2007–2009). She then later appeared in the independent drama Winter's Bone (2010) while her first commercial success was the Marvel superhero film X-Men: First Class (2011).

Lawrence gained international fame [edit]

for playing heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games film series (2012–2015), which established her as the highest-grossing action heroine as of 2015. She starred in David O. Russell's romantic comedy Silver Linings Playbook (2012), for which she won a Golden Globe Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, and the Academy Award for Best Actress, becoming the second-youngest Best Actress Oscar winner. For her supporting role in Russell's comedy-drama American Hustle (2013), she won a BAFTA Award and a Golden Globe Award.

Kentucky-born actress [edit]

Jennifer Lawrence began her career as a teenager, appearing on shows like Monk and The Bill Engvall Show from 2006 through 2009. In 2008, she appeared alongside Charlize Theron in the critically acclaimed film The Burning Plain, for which she won the Marcello Mastroianni Award for the best young emerging actor/actress. She next made waves starring as the daughter of a troubled mother in 2010's Winter's Bone, which garnered her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. In 2011 she appeared in the well-reviewed romantic drama Like Crazy, and she won the coveted lead role in the highly anticipated adaptation of The Hunger Games, which would become one of the biggest smash hits of 2012. As if that weren't heady enough for an actress only 22 years old, Lawrence earned stellar reviews for her work opposite Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook, a critical and popular hit at the end of that year that earned Lawrence the Oscar for Best Actress. The next year followed the same successful pattern, with the second installment of the Hunger Game series, Catching Fire, capturing the number one spot at the domestic box office for 2013, and also grabbing another Oscar nomination for American Hustle.
