Lawrence graduated from high school two years early in order to begin acting.
By age 23, she became the youngest actress to be nominated for three Oscars, including two of them for leading role, one of which she won.
Universal and Imagine announced in fall 2013 that Lawrence will be cast to play the role of Cathy Ames in an eventual remake of the movie East of Eden (1955), itself based on the classic 1952 novel by John Steinbeck. The remake will be directed by The Hunger Games (2012)'s Gary Ross, and will consist of two parts and two movies. Lawrence's role will be featured in the first film.
On the set of The Hunger Games (2012), Jennifer showed up to set a couple times with the same blood and scar makeup from the day before. Because of this, Elizabeth Banks gave her the nickname Katpiss Neverclean.
Has appeared in two Sundance Grand Jury Prize winners in a row: Winter's Bone (2010) and Like Crazy (2011).
