Jennifer Lawrence is an extraordinary actress she had lead roles in TBS’s The Bill Engvall Show, her first acting job. She nailed the audition for the show and she got the role. When the series ended she started doing independent films in which she got notice by films critics of her performance. She never took an acting class, but she can act and gave a memorable performance on screen. It is wisely to get into an acting class to get notice by acting agents who will put you into films. She started doing independent films which launch her acting career. “The Burning Plain” she gave her great performance, I love this movie. In “The Burning Plain” she starred with Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger. Her performance earned her the Marcello Mastroianni Award for best young emerging actor/actress at the Venice Film Festival in 2008. The same thing with “Winter’s Bone”, for which she received nominations for the Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Satellite Award, and the Screen Actors Guild Award. At the age of 20, she was the second youngest actress ever to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. She can give Kirsten Steward the run for the money in the Oscar awards. She can do it all.
She even did guest star roles in TV such as “Cold Case”, “Medium” and “Monk”.
And she did it again, in 2008, Lawrence had the lead role in another film director’s debut, Lori Petty’s family drama “The Poker House”, opposite Selma Blair and Chloë Grace Moretz, where she starred as Agnes, a young girl victim of abuse. Lawrence was awarded the Los Angeles Film Festival Award for Outstanding Performance for her role in the film.
In June 2011, she starred as shape-shifting villain Mystique alongside James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender in X-Men: First Class, a prequel to the rest of the X-Men film series and will be reprising this role again in the sequel. Lawrence’s Mystique is a younger version of the character played by Rebecca Romijn in earlier X-Men films.
She is also set to star alongside Elisabeth Shue in Mark Tonderai’s thriller “House at the End of the Street”, which completed filming in 2010 and is in post-production. Coming out in September 2012.
In March 2011, Lawrence was offered the part of Katniss Everdeen in the film “The Hunger Games”, based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Suzanne Collins. Despite being a fan of the books, Lawrence took three days to accept the role because she was initially intimidated by the size of the movie and what it may mean for her fame. She underwent extensive training to get in shape for the role, including stunt training, archery, rock and tree climbing, combat, running, parkour, pilates, and yoga. The film was released on March 23, 2012, and set the record for the third-largest opening weekend of all time, making a record-breaking $152.5 million in three days for a non-sequel film. It was blockbuster film.
On September 10, 2012, Lawrence began working on the film adaptation of the second novel in the “The Hunger Games” trilogy, “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire”, which is scheduled to be released on November 22, 2013.
