About Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence was born in Kentucky and has an estimated net worth of $75 million in 2015. Jennifer Lawrence convinced her family to move to NYC in order to pursue an acting career when she was in her early teens.
Like Ellen Page and Carey Mulligan before her, Jennifer Lawrence has been plucked from relative obscurity on the back of a breakthrough performance in an under-the-radar indie and thrown on the front line of Hollywood’s annual awards-show blitz. Her bold and ballsy turn as a white-knuckle teenager searching for her father in Winter’s Bone has earned the Kentucky native raves from every major critics circle on the map, culminating in a career-changing Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Good news, Jennifer: You’ll never have to wait for a table in this town again.
She is widely recognized for her work on “The Bill Engvall Show”, and for her Oscar-nominated performance in “Winter’s Bone”.
In Winter’s Bone, 20-year-old Jennifer Lawrence plays a hard-luck teenager forced to take care of her young brother and sister and her mentally ill mother in the rural Ozarks, a desolate, poverty-stricken region in the United States that the rest of the world has left behind.
In 2008, Jennifer Lawrence was poised for a breakout. With a recurring role in the TBS sitcom The Bill Engvall Show and a buzzy performance in The Burning Plain with Charlize Theron , Lawrence had “next big thing” written all over her. But when The Burning Plain flopped, Lawrence’s career sort of stalled. Thankfully, director Debra Granik saw and loved Lawrence’s performance, and cast her in a small, low-budget film called Winter’s Bone. The rest is history. Winter’s Bone won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and now has an Oscar nomination for Best Picture. Lawrence’s performance drew raves across the board, earning her both Golden Globe and Oscar nods for Best Actress. As far as breakouts go, it doesn’t get any bigger than that.
Fast Forward to 2014 and J-Law, as she’s referred in some circles, is Hollywood’s Hottest Ticket. So much to add to her resume this year, including winning the Oscar for Best Actress in The Silver Lining Playbook, having the lead in Hunger Games: Catching Fire, one of the year’s highest grossing films, and now being nominated for her supporting role in American Hustle.
