Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence, born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, acted in church plays and, by the age of 14, had decided to pursue an acting career, persuading her parents to take her to New York City to find a talent agent.

Although she had no training or experience, she received high praise from the agency for which she auditioned and graduated from school two years early in order to begin acting.

Lawrence had the lead role, frequently cited as a “breakout performance” for her, in Debra Granik’s “Winter’s Bone” (which won best picture at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010).

She portrays a seventeen-year-old girl in the rural Ozarks, caring for her mentally-ill mother and her younger brother and sister, when she discovers that her father has put their house and land up as a bond for a court appearance.

Lawrence received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress in 2011 for her performance in “Winter’s Bone” and now has three movies due to release later this year including: “X-Men: First Class” and “The Beaver” alongside actors such as James McAvoy, Mel Gibson, and Jodie Foster.
