Jennifer Lawrence Skyrockets_Celebrity English
This amazing Oscar winning actress continues to skyrocket with her recent box office sensation The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!  She is now one of the youngest A-List Celebrities in Hollywood!  But what is it about Jennifer Lawrence that makes her stand out from the crowd?  Why is Jennifer Lawrence So Successful?  And what is it about her that people love? 


Let’s take a look at this phenomenal lady!


Down to Earth...
“Not to sound rude, but [acting] is stupid. Everybody's like, 'How can you remain with a level head?' And I'm like, ‘Why would I ever get cocky?’ I'm not saving anybody's life. There are doctors who save lives and firemen who run into burning buildings. I'm making movies. It's stupid.” ~ Jennifer Lawrence ~


Approachable 
Despite being an A-List Celebrity, Jennifer Lawrence still openly takes fan requests on her official website.

Unscripted & Funny!
How her co-workers describe her: Her "Hunger Games" costar Woody Harrelson: "She is one-of-a-kind, man. She is so herself. I love how she doesn't censor herself. She says the most outrageous.... Just incredible, the stuff she'll say."

Well known for being herself during interviews. Watch her meet one of her favorite movie stars for the first time! LOL!



Determined!
Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games

Lawrence graduated from high school two years early in order to begin acting.
For her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games (2012), Lawrence worked out twice a day and practiced archery.


In Charge of her Destiny...
“There are actresses who build themselves, and then there are actresses who are built by others. I want to build myself.” ~ Jennifer Lawrence ~


Role Model for Hunger Games Fans
... I don't diet. I do exercise! But I don't diet. You can't work when you're hungry, you know?… In Hollywood, I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I'll be the only actress that doesn't have anorexia rumors! I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I'm invincible. I don't want little girls to be like, "Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner!"


Family Oriented
Jennifer Lawrence and Parents_ET

Her "funny" family dynamic: "My mom is big funny," Lawrence said. "She's loud funny. And my dad is the opposite — the funniest person you will ever meet, but he never raises his voice. He's just really quick. Very subtle.... We definitely grew up funny." ~ Jennifer Lawrence ~

Lawrence is also well known for praising her parents their financial sacrifices to help her career and dream begin.

"I wouldn't be here without my parents, who took out a second mortgage to let me do this," she said. "My brothers told them 'let me go' and I lived without parents for a couple of years. They are my rock. They are always there." ~ Jennifer Lawrence ~

Also, brought her parents as her date to the 70th Golden Globe and SAG Awards.

Charitable
Jennifer Lawrence supports several charities such as the Special Olympics and St. Mary’s Center charities.
