Jennifer Lawrence Facts

Jennifer is famous for her roles at Katniss in The Hunger Games, and as young Mystique in X-Men: First Class.

For her role in 2010 grim-fest Winter's Bone, she learned to skin squirrels, chop wood, and fight. Although presumably not all at the same time, unless she was fighting a squirrel up a tree.

Jennifer doesn't diet, because she's tired of actresses looking "like birds" off-set. Good on ’er.

Why We Love Jennifer Lawrence

Much like us, Jennifer Lawrence has never had acting lessons. Unlike us, Jennifer Lawrence has acted in a variety of TV shows and movies, and has risen to A-list status star in the entertainment industry. We wonder what we're doing wrong? Maybe it's our complete lack of natural talent and the way we look like we’ve fallen backwards out of a hedge most days. That might be it.

Jennifer made the leap from pretty famous to mega-super-ultra-famous with her starring role in The Hunger Games, the movie adaptation of the moody sci-fi novel. Having clocked up a whopping $686,533,290 at the global box office, the film made not only made Lawrence a household name, it also made us want to take her on a date, perhaps to Nando’s, then moving on to The Crown for a couple of pints (white-wine spritzers for Jennifer). Jennifer’s probably marginally more excited about the “household name” thing, but hopefully only marginally.
