Before breaking into Hollywood, Jennifer Lawrence was born to Karen, who managed a children’s camp, and construction worker Gary.

She has two older brothers named Ben and Blaine.

Jennifer attended Kammerer Middle School in Louisville and graduated from high school two years early.

By the age of 14, she decided she wanted to become an actress. Jennifer persuaded her parents to take her to New York City to find a talent agent.

Shortly after, Jennifer’s career forced her and her family to move to Los Angeles, where she was cast in the sitcom The Bill Engvall Show.

She was also featured in smaller movies like The Poker House and The Burning Plain in 2008.

Her career took off in 2010, when she landed the part of Ree in Winter’s Bone. She earned Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for her work in the film.

In 2011, Jennifer appeared in independent flick Like Crazy and played a villain in X-Men: First Class.

After filming, she began dating co-star Nicholas Hoult but they ended their relationship in 2013.

The couple got back together six months later. Jennifer and Nicholas reportedly separated in August 2014.

In 2012, Jennifer Lawrence starred as Katniss Everdeen in the big-screen adaptation of literary sensation The Hunger Games.

It went on to become one of the highest-grossing movies ever and instantly launched her amongst the Hollywood A-list.

The actress became the face of Dior in October 2012 and played Tiffany Maxwell in Silver Linings Playbook soon after.

Jennifer was announced as the Best Actress Oscar winner for the role in February 2013 and infamously fell up the stairs while going to collect the award.

American Hustle was released on 20 December 2013 with Jennifer scoring a supporting role. She won a Golden Globe for her part on 12 January 2014.

On 31 August 2014, nude photographs of Jennifer Lawrence leaked online. She later confirmed that the saucy snaps were real.

Jennifer was first linked to Coldplay’s Chris Martin in summer 2014, after the singer separated from wife Gwyneth Paltrow.
