As Her Star Rises, Jennifer Lawrence Stays Down To Earth

With the anticipation for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire heating up, there is no hotter actress in Hollywood than Jennifer Lawrence.

After first coming to national attention on the ill-fated Bill Engvall Show, Lawrence, a 23-year-old native of Louisville, Kent. is here, there and everywhere, starring in big movies, making big headlines and cashing big checks.

Lawrence made comic book fanboys drool in blue body paint (and not much else) as Raven McCoy/Mystique in X-Men: First Class. Next was her first go-around as bow-wielding heroine Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. That was followed by her Academy Award-winning performance as the troubled Tiffany in Silver Linings Playbook. And through this stretch, which has seen her profile go from interstate to intergalactic, Jennifer Lawrence has kept it real and done her best to avoid going Hollywood.

“I don’t even think we had a conversation about it,” Lawrence said of her return to the Hunger Games set after her Oscar win. “You guys were like, ‘Congratulations, that’s great.’ And then it was like, ‘Cool.’ Then we started talking about farts.”

Genuine, affable, and beautifully human, Jennifer Lawrence is who she is and she makes no apologies. Want to criticize her weight? Jennifer Lawrence has got some choice words—which cannot be repeated here. Ms. Lawrence is just as likely to make you laugh as she is to fill you with desire. With her recent disclosure of battling social anxiety and other tales of genuine humanity, Jennifer grow more relatable and more endearing. Lawrence credits acting with helping her deal with her social anxiety and to that end, she credits her family, saying that, without them, “I would be nothing.”

“They took two mortgages on their home to settle in New York with me and allow me to try to break into a field that made ​​me happy,” Jennifer Lawrence told French magazine Le Figaro. “They wanted me to grow up in Kentucky, to lead a normal life, what all parents want for their children. But they saw me so happy that they sacrificed everything for my happiness.”

Jennifer doesn’t have an assistant, instead preferring to spend her days with her best friend.
