Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay

Jennifer Lawrence has become one of Hollywood’s biggest stars. She’s incredibly talented while also being beautiful. Jennifer became a household name in 2012 beginning with her role in “The Hunger Games” series and then won an Oscar for Best Actress with her performance as a depressed, bipolar yet charming widow in “Silver Linings Playbook.” Here’s what our movie critic Jason Zingale wrote about Jennifer when naming “Silver Linings Playbook” as one of the ten bets films of 2012, “Bradley Cooper finally gets the chance to show what he’s fully capable of in the best role of his career, and Robert De Niro has some great moments as Cooper’s superstitious father, but it’s Jennifer Lawrence (already so good at such a young age) who steals the show with a phenomenal performance that all but guarantees she’ll win the Oscar for Best Actress.

In 2013, Jennifer was part of an all-star cast in “American Hustle,” which Jason Zingale described as “a ’70s-styled farce filled with a flying circus of conmen, feds, politicians and casino mobsters.” The entire cast is excellent, but Jennifer shines again. “But it’s Jennifer Lawrence who steals the show once again in what is arguably the flashiest role of the bunch. Watching the Oscar winner lip-synch to “Live and Let Die” as she angry cleans her house is worth the price of admission alone.”

In 2018 she starred in “Red Sparrow,” a film that seemed like a perfect fit for her talents and seductive good looks. Our critic, Rob Dean, gave the film four stars while many others gave it more lukewarm reviews. Regarding JLaw’s performance, Rob said, “Jennifer Lawrence gives a mostly assured performance as the film weighs heavily upon her shoulders, appearing in a majority of the scenes and serving as the driving force of the story. She takes on the mutation of Dominika from ballerina to cutthroat spy very well and endures the hardships of her training and experience in a way that makes her sympathetic, yet always at a distance to leave audiences questioning her reasons.”
