At the age of 14, Jennifer Lawrence moved with her parents from tranquil Kentucky to New York and made efforts to become an actress.
At 16 she was able to write her debut in a small supporting role for a television film called “Company Town” in her profile. And Jennifer Lawrence could almost have celebrated a role on “Twilight” if it hadn’t been for another vampire with sharper teeth.
In return, she was allowed to play alongside Kim Basinger in “On Burning Earth”, which was a decent substitute. For her engagement in the independent film “Winter’s Bone” it rained plenty of awards: the first Oscar nomination was ticked off. She was also in front of the camera in blockbuster films like “X-Men”.

But of course, none of that made amends for the “Twilight” cancellation. She could only get over that with the promise of “The Hunger Games”.
