A natural. That’s what they’re calling 20-year-old Jennifer Lawrence (born August 15, 1990), the lucky young lady picked to play Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movie due out next March (CAN’T WAIT!). Despite no formal training — not one drama class or acting lesson — Jennifer earned an Academy Award nomination for the lead role in last year’s Winter’s Bone. The award eventually went to Natalie Portman for Black Swan, but Jennifer picked up quite a few new fans. And roles. She’s also playing the young Mystique in the upcoming X-Men: First Class, opening June 3 (yup, next week!).
Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Jennifer somehow managed to convince her parents to take her to New York City to find a talent agent when she was just 14. With little more than a few church plays under her belt, she was already sure about her future career.
I was surprised by how many different ways she’s worn her hair. For someone so young, she’s already worn it DOZENS of different ways, including this one here…
