“There are actresses who build themselves, and then there are actresses who are built by others. I want to build myself.”
The world has been captured by the talent, sexiness and appeal of Jennifer Lopez, our JLo. But in the recent years, another sexy, talented and gorgeous star was brought to the spotlight- Jennifer Lawrence. What is amazing about her is that she is not your typical Hollywood superstar, she is an actress who appears to be very human despite everything she has achieved and everywhere she has been.
Jennifer Lawrence, as of today, is the youngest actress ever to have been nominated for the Best Actress in a Leading Role award at the Oscars twice. She was nominated a few years back as she starred in the film Winter’s Bone and was once again nominated this Academy Awards 2013 in the picture Silver Linings Playbook. She has been nominated twice at the young age of 22. Not only did she receive good reception from the critics, she also rose to extreme popularity when she was casted as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games where she nailed her role and made everyone admire the young heroine.
What makes her loved by her fans so dearly is that she is not afraid to speak what is truly in her heart during interviews and is very unlike other celebrities who put on this “perfect” image. She makes wacky poses, jokes a lot in interviews, and even has a lot of funny moments she is not afraid to show the world. She has even been dubbed the “Derp Queen” by her fans.
Even her co-workers praise and love Jennifer Lawrence for her personality and immense natural talent. She also appears to be really close to her Hunger Games co-star Josh Hutcherson. They tease and make fun of each other in interviews and seem to be very comfortable with each other. They are like siblings born to different parents.
She got her big break in Winter’s Bone where she got her first Oscar nomination as the Best Actress in a Leading role. She was critically praised for her role as the eldest child of a family who was on the brink of losing their property if their father does not appear on the day of his trial. This mysterious drama landed her the most sought-after nomination and perhaps her role for The Hunger Games since the characters were not very far from each other.
She also starred in X-Men: First Class a year after Winter’s Bone was released. The next year is perhaps the year when she became her brightest self when she landed the role of Katniss. This tough young heroine kept her family together in loss of their father, which is not too far from her role in Winter’s Bone. The following year, she then was casted as a sex addict in recovery in the film Silver Lining’s Playbook where she is the love interest of Bradley Cooper’s bipolar character.
Jennifer is not only an actress who shines brightly on the big screen; she is also a huge inspiration especially for young girls that skinny isn’t the only pretty.
