Jennifer Lawrence has an estimated net worth of $22 million dollars
American actress Jennifer Lawrence has an estimated net worth of $22 million. Lawrence is 5’8″ and weighs 135 pounds. Jennifer Shrader Lawrence was born on August 15, 1990 in Louisville, Kentucky. Lawrence is most known for playing the role of “Katniss Everdeen” in the sci-fi film The Hunger Games. Jennifer grew up in Louisville and her mother ran a children’s camp while her father owned a construction company. She acted in local theater from a young age and at 14 convinced her parents to take her to New York to seek an agent. She graduated high school two year’s early to facilitate an acting career.
At 16, Jennifer got her first major role as a cast member on TBS’s The Bill Engvall Show and stayed with the show for its duration (3 years) winning praise for her portrayal of the title character’s teenage daughter. During the show’s run she also had guest roles in several television shows and auditioned for the role of Bella in the Twilight but lost out on the role. She would win recognition and awards for her role in The Burning Plain, which starred Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger in 2008. It was Winter’s Bone, however, that would catapult Lawrence into the media spotlight. The independent film won best picture at the Sundance Film Festival and led to her being cast as the heroine in 2011’s The Hunger Games.
Playing Katniss Everdeen from Suzanne Collins’ novel of the same name vaulted Lawrence to superstardom as the film earned the third highest ever opening in film history (for a non-sequel). She also became the highest grossing heroine in film history. Soon after, she agreed to portray “Mystique” in X-Men: First Class, joining one of the most popular movie franchises in history. In 2012 she would play the female lead opposite Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook, and win her first Academy Award for the role. She continues to be cast in major Hollywood productions, including X-Men and Hunger Games sequels and in 2012 she was named as the new face of Dior.
