Jennifer Lawrence can now add Guinness Book World Record holder to her resume.
In the midst of the nude picture hacking scandal, a ray of light has beamed down on Jennifer Lawrence. According to the official Guinness World Records site, Jennifer Lawrence now holds the record as the highest grossing action movie heroine of all time for her starring roles in the Hunger Games films.
The first two films for Jennifer Lawrence, The Hunger Games and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, together grossed over $1.52 billion at the worldwide box office. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire was also proclaimed the highest grossing post-apocalyptic film, making over $854 million worldwide. And, of course, Jennifer Lawrence’s numbers will only increase with the third and fourth Hunger Games films — The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts I and II respectively — yet to be released. The first of the Mockingjay films is set to be released in the United States in November.
