Jennifer Lawrence. biography
Jennifer Shrader Lawrence was born on August 15, 1990, in Louisville, Kentucky and was first discovered at the age of 14 while with her family in New York. After a passer buyer asked to take Jennifer’s photo, he exchanged numbers with Jennifer’s mother and immediately called the next day to set up a time for a test screening.
The young hopeful was soon living in New York City, landing commercials for MTV and making her on-screen debut in Devil You Know.
The aspiring actress then moved to Los Angeles with her family to further build her new career, landing a minor role on Cold Case (2007) prior to appearing in her first feature films, The Poker House (2008) and The Burning Plain (2008) with Kim Basinger and Charlize Theron.
Jennifer’s big break came in 2010, when she starred in the critically praised film Winter’s Bone – a performance that resulted in her first nominations for a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award and an Academy Award. The film’s major success led Jennifer to more significant and accessible roles alongside some of Hollywood’s longtime natives, including Jodie Foster as well as Mel Gibson in The Beaver (2011) and Kevin Bacon in X-Men: First Class (2011).
In 2012, Jennifer established herself as true star with her lead performance in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ novel The Hunger Games. Made for an estimated $78 million, the film bypassed box-office records with $152.5 million ticket sales in its opening weekend and a total gross of $407.9 million in the U.S. alone, ultimately launching Jennifer’s stardom to new heights.
The rising starlet then starred in the horror flick House at the End of the Street (2012) before further demonstrating her versatility as a skilled actress in her next memorable film. For her critically acclaimed performance opposite Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer won the 2012 Golden Globe Award for Best Actress as well as the 2013 Academy Award for Best Leading Actress.
Jenifer’s most recent projects include, the thriller The Devil You Know (2013), the drama Serena (2013) opposite Bradley Cooper, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), the drama American Hustle (2013) with Christian Bale and Amy Adams, X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (2014) and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015).

Jennifer was rumored to be dating her The Bill Engvall Show co-star Graham Martin, though it was never verified.

Jennifer and fellow-actor Nicholas Hunt first met while filming X-Men: First Class in 2010 and began dating shortly after. They made their debut appearance as a couple at a Sag Awards after-party in early 2011.
In a 2012 December interview with Elle magazine, Jennifer gave insight on their relationship, saying, “He is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend, too. He’s my favorite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody.”
Despite looking like an unbreakable bond, the couple later broke up in January 2013 due to their hectic schedules and struggle to make a long-distance relationship work.
However, once the two reunited on the set of X-Men: Days of Future Past as Mystique and Beast in July 2013, the young Hollywood stars rekindled their romance. A source went on to reveal to Us Weekly “They started the shoot in April as friends, and then one day they just started kissing. One thing led to another and they hooked up. All her old feelings came rushing back. Now they're fully back on.”
