Jennifer Lawrence was an Academy Award-winning American actress who was best known for her riveting performances in a number of critically-acclaimed films, including "Winter's Bone" (2010), "Silver Linings Playbook" (2012), "American Hustle" (2013), and "The Hunger Games" (2012-15) franchise. Born and raised in Kentucky, Lawrence was an athletic child who excelled in various different sports, like softball and field hockey. She was also an accomplished horseback rider, but had to cut back on the sport after injuring her tailbone during a ride. In numerous interviews, Lawrence claimed how she suffered from social anxiety and hyperactivity as a young girl. As a result, the soon-to-be Hollywood actress said she always felt like an outsider amongst her childhood peers. However, she would later find that acting was a therapeutic outlet that suppressed her anxiety. Lawrence, who began acting in stage productions put on by her local church, found that all of her problems and worries disappeared once she was on stage. Thus, throughout her adolescence, she appeared in several stage plays and musicals, thus honing her craft night after night. Although Lawrence loved acting for her church, it was a stroke of blind luck that would elevate her into the exalted world of film and TV acting. While vacationing with her parents in New York City, the then-14-year-old Lawrence was discovered by a talent scout while walking the city streets. The scout arranged for the teenage Lawrence to audition for a talent agent. Lawrence blew the agents away with her cold reading, and they quickly signed her to a contract. Lawrence then dropped out of school and moved to Los Angeles to embark on a career in film and television acting. She never earned her GED or high school diploma, instead putting all of her focus into her fledgling acting career. Lawrence's long-term career gamble paid off almost immediately. She soon started landing commercial work, and then began nabbing guest spots on TV shows like "Monk" (USA Network, 2002-09), as well as roles in films like "Garden Party" (2008) and "The Burning Plain" (2008). Then in 2007 Lawrence joined the cast of the sitcom "The Bill Engvall Show" (TBS, 2007-09). The series ran for three seasons, before it was cancelled in September of 2009. After the cancellation of "The Bill Engvall Show" in 2009, Lawrence set her sights on a film acting career. She nabbed her breakout role a year later in 2010 with a starring turn in the independent drama "Winter's Bone." The film was a critical darling, and would go on to earn the 21-year-old Jennifer Lawrence her first Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Her role in "Winter's Bone" was a career high-point for Lawrence. But as it turned out, she was only getting starred. Over the course of the next few years Lawrence starred in some of the most critically-acclaimed films of the 2010s, most notably "Silver Linings Playbook," "American Hustle," and "Joy"(2015). Lawrence was nominated for an Oscar for all three films (which were all directed by her frequent collaborator David O. Russell), and would go on to take home the gold statue for her work in "Silver Linings Playbook." In addition to her acclaimed dramatic work, Lawrence also became a household name to fans of the blockbuster fantasy adventure franchise "The Hunger Games." The films, which premiered in 2012 and included three sequels, starred Lawrence in the role of the plucky heroine Katniss Everdeen and have been wildly successful at the box office, raking in nearly $3 billion globally as of 2019. In addition to her work in the blockbuster "The Hunger Games" franchise, Lawrence also appeared as Raven/Mystique in four of the "X-Men"-themed superhero films, including 2019's "Dark Phoenix." "Dark Phoenix," which starred Sophie Turner as the title character, premiered in the summer of 2019. It was the first and only film Lawrence appeared in that year, though her October 2019 marriage to art dealer Cooke Maroney kept her in the gossip pages.

QUOTES FROM Jennifer Lawrence CHARACTERS

Raven/Mystique says: They still hate and fear us, its just harder to see because they're more polite about it.

Raven/Mystique says: Just because there's not a war doesn't mean there's peace.You want to teach your students something teach them that. Teach them to fight. Otherwise they might as well live in this house for the rest of their lives.

Raven/Mystique says: You've been busy.

Scott Summers / Cyclops says: We uh, had a little help.

Joy says: We got here from hard work, patience, and humility. Don't think the world owes you anything because the world owes you nothing.

Joy says: listen to me. Never speak. On my behalf about my business. Again

Joy says: listen to me. Never speak. On my behalf about my business. Again.

Rebel Sniper says: Give me one reason why I shouldn't kill you

Rebel Sniper says: Give me one reason why I shouldn't kill you.

Katniss Everdeen says: I can't

Katniss Everdeen says: I can't.

Katniss Everdeen says: Did you have a nightmare? I have nightmares too. Someday I'll explain it to you. Why they came. Why they won't ever go away. But I'll tell you how I survive it. I make a list in my head. Of all the good things I've seen someone do. Every little thing I could remember. It's like a game. I do it over and over. Gets a little tedious after all these years. But there are much worse games to play

Rebel Sniper says: Give me one reason why I shouldn't kill you

Rebel Sniper says: Give me one reason why I shouldn't kill you.

Katniss Everdeen says: I can't

Katniss Everdeen says: I can't.

Katniss Everdeen says: But one day I'l have to explain about my nightmares. Why they came. Why they won't ever really go away. I'll tell them how I survive it. I'll tell them that on bad mornings, it feels impossible to take pleasure in anything because I'm afraid it could be taken away. That's when I make a list in my head of every act of goodness I've seen someone do. It's like a game. Repetitive. Even a little tedious after more than twenty years. But there are much worse games to play.

Peeta Mellark says: "You love me. real or not real"

Peeta Mellark says: You love me. Real or not real.

Katniss Everdeen says: Real

Katniss Everdeen says: Real.

Gale Hawthorne says: What are you thinking?

Katniss Everdeen says: I don't know.

Gale Hawthorne says: It's like kissing someone when you're drunk; it doesn't count.

Katniss Everdeen says: She's gone... Get out!

Katniss Everdeen says: Stay with me!

Peeta Mellark says: Always

Peeta Mellark says: Always.

Katniss Everdeen says: Turn your weapons to the capitol, Turn your weapons to kill snow.

Katniss Everdeen says: Turn your weapons to the capitol, turn your weapons to kill snow.

Katniss Everdeen says: I am done, being a piece, in his game.

Peeta Mellark says: Are you still trying to protect me? Real or not real.

Katniss Everdeen says: Real. Because that's what you and I do, keep each other alive.

Katniss Everdeen says: We all have one enemy! He corrupts everyone, and everything! He turns the best of us against eachother. Tonight, turn your weapons, to the Capital! Turn your weapons, to Snow!

Katniss Everdeen says: Nothing good is safe while Snow's alive. I can't make another speech about it...Snow has to pay for what he's done.

Raven Darkholme/Mystique says: Mutant and proud.

Katniss Everdeen says: Snow has to pay for what he's done.

Katniss Everdeen says: Tonight, turn your weapons to the Capitol!

Katniss Everdeen says: It must be a fragile system if it can be brought down by just a few berries

President Snow says: It is indeed--but not in the way you imagine.

Katniss Everdeen says: How should I imagine?

President Snow says: You should imagine thousands upon thousands of your people dead...this town of yours reduced to ashes, imagine it gone, buried under dirt, made radioactive as if it had never existed like District 13. You fought very hard in the games miss Everdeen, but they were games...would you like to be in a real war?

President Alma Coin says: Any other demands?

Katniss Everdeen says: My sister gets to keep her cat.

Katniss Everdeen says: Are you, are you coming to the tree? Wear a necklace of rope, side by side with me. Strange things did happen here, no stranger would it be, if we met at night, in a hanging tree

Katniss Everdeen says: That is the same Peeta that defended you at the whipping post.

Katniss Everdeen says: If we burn, you burn with us!

Katniss Everdeen says: I have a message for President Snow: Fire is catching, and if we burn, you burn with us!

Tiffany says: I used to think you were the best thing that happened, but now I think you might maybe be the worst thing.

Charles Xavier/Professor X says: You just have to come home!

Mystique/Raven says: I have to? You haven't changed at all, Charles. Like I said: I know exactly what I have to do.

Charles Xavier/Professor X says: You just have to come home!

Mystique/Raven says: I have to? You haven't changed at all, Charles. Like I said: I know exactly what I have to do.

Katniss Everdeen says: Any last advice?

Haymitch Abernathy says: Stay alive.

Mystique says: What's the matter ? You don't think I look pretty like this ?

Charles Xavier/Professor X says: You have to stop this. You have to listen to me. You have to come home.

Mystique says: I know exactly what I have to do.

Mystique says: I know what I have to do. It's us or them.

Katniss Everdeen says: I just wanted to say that I didn't know Tresh, I only spoke to him once. He could have killed me, but instead he showed me mercy. That's a debt I'll never be able to repay. I did know Rue. She wasn't just my ally, she was my friend. I see her in the flowers that grow in the meadow by my house. I hear her in the Mockingjay song. I see her in my sister Prim. She was too young, too gentle and I couldn't save her. I'm sorry.

Katniss Everdeen says: Any last advice?

Haymitch Abernathy says: Stay alive

Haymitch Abernathy says: Stay alive.

President Snow says: While you and Peeta are on tour, you need to smile, you need to be grateful, but above all, you need to madly end it all in love. You think you can manage that?

President Snow says: "Yes" what?

Katniss Everdeen says: I'll convince them.

President Snow says: No. Convince me.

Tiffany says: You're not a standup guy today, Pat!

Tiffany says: Can we get through one fucking conversation without you reminding me that my goddamn husband's dead?

Tiffany says: I was a slut. There will always be a part of me that is dirty and sloppy, but I like that, just like all the other parts of myself. I can forgive. Can you say the same for yourself, fucker? Can you forgive? Are you capable of that?

Katniss Everdeen says: We are all of us united. Both victors and vanquished, in serving a common purpose. Panem today, panem tomorrow, panem forever.

Johanna Mason says: Really? A wedding dress?

Katniss Everdeen says: Snow made me wear it.

Johanna Mason says: [smirks] Make him pay for it.

Johanna Mason says: Make him pay for it.

Katniss Everdeen says: You told me to wake you up.

Haymitch Abernathy says: Well, you could've woken me up without giving me pneumonia.

Tiffany says: You say more inappropriate things than you say appropriate things. You scare people.

Tiffany says: Would you just leave me alone!

Pat says: I have one more letter for you to read.

Tiffany says: It can still be a date if you order raisin bran.

Tiffany says: I told my story and you judged me?

Tiffany says: You are afraid to be alive. You're afraid to live. You're a conformist. You're a liar. I opened up to you and you judged me. You're an asshole. YOU'RE AN ASSHOLE!
