Jennifer Shrader Lawrence was born on August 15, 1990, in Louisville, Kentucky and was first discovered at the age of 14 while in New York with her family, when a passer buyer asked to take her photo and exchanged numbers with Jennifer's mother. He called the next day to set up a time for a test screening and Jennifer soon found herself living in New York City, landing commercials for MTV and performing in her first film, Devil You Know. She 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, including 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, including The Beaver (2011) alongside Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson and 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. The film bypassed box-office records with ease on its debut weekend and launched Jennifer to stardom.
Jennifer's most recent projects include, the horror flick House at the End of the Street (2012), Silver Linings Playbook (2012) opposite Bradley Cooper, Serena (2013), The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) and X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014).
For her critically acclaimed performance in Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer won a 2012 Golden Globe for Best Actress and earned a 2013 Academy Award nomination for Best Leading Actress.
