The tribute star, Jennifer Lawrence’s rise to becoming one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actresses after her breakout role in “The Hunger Games” is nothing short of awe-inspiring. From the refreshing red carpet interviews that had everyone in stitches, to the Academy Award nominations garnished by her, it only solidified her iconic status as an actress. But even with those dazzling smiles and quick wit of this extraordinary woman, her accomplishments in both her career and life are what truly speaks for themselves.

Early Life and Career

Jennifer was born in Indian Hills, Kentucky on August 15th, 1990. She was molded into a tomboy while playing just as tough as her older two brothers. Seeing her rough play, her parents didn’t want her to play with the other girls in her preschool. She had social anxiety, hyperactivity, and saw herself as a misfit. But all these self doubts and insecurities melted away as soon as she hit the stage. School plays and talent shows caused a spark in Jennifer’s interest in acting from an early age. This propelled her to appear as a guest star in multiple series like “Monk”, “Medium”, “Cold Case”, and “The Bill Engvall Show“.

The Hunger Games and Beyond

Lawrence made her rise to stardom with her appearance as Katniss Everdeen in the movie adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ best-selling novel The Hunger Games in 2012, and has starred in various high-profile films since, such as Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle, Joy, Red Sparrow – even being nominated four times for an Academy Award! Additionally in 2013 Lawrence became the second youngest person ever named People’s Most Beautiful Woman.

Awards and Accolades 

Jennifer has won many prestigious honors throughout her career, such as an Oscar, three Golden Globes, BAFTA, four Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, two Screen Actors Guild Awards, seven MTV Movie Awards, eight Teen Choice Awards and five People’s Choice Awards. On top of these accomplishments, Lawrence made history in 2015 by becoming Hollywood’s highest-paid actress – also becoming the youngest person ever featured on Forbes Celebrity 100 list!

Philanthropic Work

Jennifer is best known for her acting abilities, but she’s also a passionate philanthropist. In 2015, she established the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation to fund charitable organizations which are close to her heart, such as cancer research, hunger relief, and animal welfare amongst many others. Since she was appointed an Ambassador for Boys & Girls Clubs of America, she uses her status as a celebrity to advocate and speak out on issues like gender equality and body image

Personal Life

After dating for a year, art gallery director, Cooke Marney, proposed to Jennifer and they said their “I do’s” in 2019. Even being an adventurer at heart and enjoying rock climbing and skiing, Lawrence prefers to enjoy her private life out of the public view – even while taking her pet dog, Pippi, out for walks.

Her talent, charisma, commitment to philanthropy and down-to-earth personality: all reasons why so many love Jennifer Lawrence. But the crowning element is her relatable persona! Never needing to conform to an idealized facade, Jennifer remains relatable even after becoming one of Hollywood’s iconic actresses and will remain one of the most loved figures for years to come.
