She's not even 30 and has taken the world by storm. She's definitely special and we can't take it!

In a mere six years, Jennifer Lawrence seems to have taken the world by storm, blazing through Hollywood and making it look easy at the same time. It’s not often that we see an actress soaring so high so quickly, and this bombshell shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. It’s hard to believe that a few short years ago, she was just another obscure actress and now she’s one of the highest paid actresses in the world. According to Jennifer, she knew even as a child that she would one day be famous – proof that dreams really can come true if you work at it!

Jennifer seems to have it all – an incredible body, masses of sex appeal, more movie offers than she knows what to do with, tons of talent, a killer wardrobe, and, of course, legions of fans like us. She counts people like Emma Stone among her friends and it seems that all the directors want to work with her because they know that having her in their films almost guarantees their success.

15 When She Confessed Her Most Embarrassing Moment On Jimmy Fallon

Jennifer is one of those down to earth stars who manages to laugh at herself – which is really refreshing. She takes little mishaps, a stumble here and a fall there, in her stride and isn’t afraid to laugh about it afterward. Her most famous tumble occurred when she won the Oscar for Best Actress but she confessed on Jimmy Fallon that it wasn’t her most embarrassing moment ever. She said her worst moment happened while she was attending an awards ceremony for Silver Linings Playbook when she was approached by an older woman who started complimenting her. For some reason, she assumed that the woman was Elizabeth Taylor (she confessed she didn’t realize she was dead) and introduced her to a friend as the legendary actress. Her friend had to correct her. Cringe!

14 The Struggle For Privacy

Jennifer says that while she enjoys her job the biggest adjustment has been the way fame has affected her privacy, and it seems that she’s still struggling with it. She says she loves her fans but also has a gentle warning for them, “You might think you know me, but when you approach me, you’re a total stranger to me and I’m scared. I get very protective of my space. It took me a long time to be able to do that. But if I’m eating dinner and somebody comes up and a flash goes off from someone’s iPhone camera, I am really rude to that person. Then other people at the restaurant will see and be like, ‘Oh, damn, I don’t want to do that.’ Privacy is a full-time job and I work very hard at it.”

13 Effortless Beauty

There is no denying that Jennifer is gorgeous in every way, but how does she stack up against the competition? Well, in 2011 people already started to take notice of her when she appeared in Victoria's Secret's listing of the "Sexiest Up-and-Coming Bombshells". She made People’s Most Beautiful list in 2011 and again in 2013 and was on Maxim’s Hot 100 list every year from 2011 until 2014. In 2014 she was voted FHM’s Sexiest Woman In The World and from 2013 until 2015 she was featured in Glamour’s Best Dressed Woman – once again topping the list in 2014.

Jennifer is such an enigma that she has even found her way into popular culture and has been referenced in both South Park and The Simpsons.

12 When We Discovered She Was Hesitant To Accept The Role Of Katniss

Believe it or not, Jennifer was hesitant to accept the role of Katniss Everdeen. She enjoyed the books but was concerned over the grand scale of The Hunger Games and it was only after talking it over with her mother that she decided to accept. It was a decision she definitely would not regret. The role won her praise all round with the Hollywood Reporter calling her an “ideal screen actress” and the film was a massive box office success raking in worldwide revenues in excess of $690 million. The film quickly became a top -grossing film to feature a female lead, which made Lawrence the highest-grossing action heroine of all time.

Jennifer is an outspoken advocate for gender equality and feminism and is the founder of the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation, through which she contributes to charitable organizations.

11 When We Discovered She Got The Role For Silver Linings Via A Skype Call

How many men have looked at this picture and wished that they could have been director David O. Russel at this exact moment? To have Jennifer Lawrence beaming down on you and playfully touching your face is more than any of us could handle!

Jennifer first met Russel when she auditioned for the role of a young depressed widow named Tiffany Maxwell in the romance movie Silver Linings Playbook. Initially, he didn’t want to hire her because he thought she was too young for the role, but she convinced him to give her the role via a Skype call. When asked about the movie later said she was a little challenged by the director’s spontaneous approach, but added that making the film was the best experience of her life.

10 When We Saw Her As Mystique

9 Meeting Up With Quentin Tarantino For Lunch

In June this year paparazzi’s snapped these photos of Jennifer Lawrence and Quentin Tarantino leaving a Los Angeles restaurant separately after meeting up for lunch. This was not the first time the two have met, Jennifer was in talks to join Quentin’s movie The Hateful Eight but had too many projects on her calendar at the time to be able to join the cast. According to the rumor mill, Quentin is hard at work putting together his ninth film which promises to be a “unique take” on the Manson murders and he wants Jennifer and Brad Pitt to star in the feature. As we all know Quentin has created some of the most badass female protagonists such as The Bride (Kill Bill) so let’s hope she will accept it.

8 When We Discovered What She Did To Prepare For Her Role In Winter's Bone

Jennifer has an incredible twenty-two movie credits under her name – not bad for someone who just turned 27 this year right? Many fans consider her fourth movie, Winter’s Bone, to be her breakthrough role. In this film, she played a character named Ree Dolly, an improvised teenager living in the mountains with younger siblings and a mentally ill mother, who is searching for her father. In preparation for the role, she visited the family on whom the story is based and spent time learning to chop wood, fight, and even skin squirrels. The role won her praise, with the New Yorker saying that the film "would be unimaginable with anyone less charismatic" and Rolling Stone stating that "her performance is more than acting, it's a gathering storm. Lawrence's eyes are a road map to what's tearing Ree apart." She was awarded the National Board of Review Award for Breakthrough Performance and nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role.

7 Her Numerous Wardrobe Malfunctions

Jennifer has had her fair share of wardrobe malfunctions but says that her most embarrassing clothing mishap happened the day that she met legendary director Francis Ford Coppola, who is responsible for films like The Godfather and Apocalypse Now. She saw him in the eatery and debated whether or not to go over, but decided that she couldn’t miss the opportunity to meet him. She went over to his table, where he was seated with a bunch of other people, and introduced herself and spent a few minutes complimenting him on his various achievements before heading back to her own table. But when she sat down again she realized that her entire dress had unzipped itself at the back and her thong was on display!

6 That Time She Posed With A Snake

Not many of us would have the guts to tangle with a snake like this but of course, this is just the type of bravery we’ve come to expect from Jennifer. Last year she took part in a Patrick Demarchelier shoot at a private residence in the Hollywood Hills with a giant Colombian red-tailed boa constrictor. According to insiders the Hunger Games heroine didn’t seem phased at all – until the snake took a liking to her neck and had to be removed. But before that happened, they were able to get some simply stunning shots. The Vanity Fair style director who styled the shoot praised Jennifer’s cool head saying, “Jennifer has the perfect combination of strength, sexuality, and humor, and, above all, tomboy to pull this off.” We couldn’t agree more.

5 When She Admitted She Found Paris Fashion Week Intimidating

It’s almost impossible to think that a talented and gorgeous woman like Jennifer Lawrence – who has been voted the Sexiest Woman In The World and won an Academy Award for Best Actress – could ever feel self-conscious but Jennifer says that she is human and just like everyone else she occasionally suffers from insecurity. In one interview, she recounted going to the Paris Fashion Week, an experience she described as extremely intimidating. She said, “You get ready in your hotel and you’re like, ‘I look awesome.’ Then you walk outside, see the outfits and people who are like seven feet tall, and are like, I am a piece of garbage. I’m not going out anymore.’ ” Wow, it must be pretty scary if even a beauty like Jennifer could feel this way – imagine how the rest of us would feel?

4 When She Said She Gets Too Much Media Attention

In an interview with Glamour magazine in 2016, Jennifer showed her more vulnerable side when she shared her feelings about her exposure in the media. She said, “I don’t feel like I’m misunderstood. I feel like I’m over-paid-attention-to. I’m not trying to be a GIF. I’m not trying to be a picked-up-on-Twitter quote. All I’m trying to do is act. And I have to promote these movies. And I am, at the end of the day, I guess, a lunatic. So if you record what I’m saying, it’s gonna be goofy. What do I do? What do I do? I’m just a girl, sitting in front of the world and asking them to forgive her for speaking.”

3 Looking Like This In A One Piece Swimsuit

So can what expect from Jennifer in the near future? Well, she’s got a new horror film coming out this month called Mother! in which she’s going to be starring alongside Javier Bardem, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Ed Harris. The film reportedly focuses on a couple whose lives are disturbed by some unexpected and scary guests. Then next year March she’s going to star as Dominika Egorova in the spy thriller Red Sparrow as well as in Steven Spielberg's film adaptation of photojournalist Lynsey Addario's memoir It's What I Do: A Photographer's Life of Love and War. She’s also committed to star in the fourth X-Men film (Dark Phoenix) and playing the leading role in Adam McKay's film Bad Blood. So we can safely say that if you’re a huge fan, you’ve got loads to look forward to!

2 Bursting Onto The Silver Screen

Jennifer made her film debut in 2008 film Garden Party where she played the role of a disturbed teenager called Tiff but it was her second movie role that really got her noticed. The film was Guillermo Arriaga's The Burning Pain and in it, she played the role of Kim Basinger’s character’s teenage daughter, who uncovers her mother’s extramarital affair. She shared the role with Charlize Theron, with each actress portraying the character at different stages of her life. Variety magazine praised her performance, saying she added depth to the role and she was awarded the Premio Marcello Mastroianni award for Best Emerging Actress at the Venice Film Festival. The following year she starred in The Poker Room, a role which earned her an Outstanding Performance award from the Los Angeles Film Festival.

1 When The Photo Leak Happened

2014 was one of Jennifer’s best years but at the same time one of her worst. She had just won an Oscar the year before for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook and was voted FHM’s Sexiest Woman In The World. She was one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars and was newly single (having ended her relationship with actor Nicholas Hoult). But it was also the year that she became one of the victims of the iCloud leaks, when nude pictures of her were leaked online. Lawrence was outraged and wanted it made clear that the photos were never meant to be public. She called the breach a “sex crime” and added that anyone even looking at the photos should be ashamed of their part in the offense.
