Slowly becoming a household name, she is currently one of the most desirable young actresses in the industry. The second youngest Oscar award winner for the best actress, she isn’t just another pretty face.
Lawrence didn’t come from money, or from fame. The daughter of a construction worker and a children’s camp manager, her upbringing was in a typical middle-class family. At the age of 14, she knew that the role of actress was one that she wanted to pursue. She persuaded her parents to take a chance and move her to New York City. Talent is not all that defines her. Graduating high school two years early, she had a 3.9 average.
She began a string of roles in the early 2000s that were met with acclaim, but her true breakout role was when she appeared in Winter’s Bone. Winning the Sundance Film Festival’s award for best picture in the year 2010, she received a lot of attention and began to turn heads. Never short for work, Lawrence is the one of the hottest actresses, being in high demand. Accolades abound, her talent is so rare that she is sought out. Cast directors know that whatever role she takes, or movie she agrees to do, turns to gold.

The thing, that separates her apart from other young starlets, is that she is known for her frugal decisions. She continues to live in the same apartment she had had since before her bank account reached six figures. Different from the other Hollywood A-listers, she doesn’t believe in excess and flaunting her wealth. She doesn’t go on huge shopping sprees, an average girl, she still admits to using coupons just like she did growing up.
Lawrence doesn’t drive around in a luxury car; rather she chooses to drive a Volkswagen, which is safe and economical. Only being paid $500,000 for the first movie in the Hunger Games Trilogy, she played her cards right. Paying her dues on a movie that grossed $691 million plus, she has positioned herself to cash in on subsequent movies. Reportedly paid over $10 million for the first sequel, the numbers just keep rising. At this pace, she will topple the highest paid actresses in Hollywood in the near future.
Coming from a normal, middle-class, ordinary childhood, Jennifer Lawrence’s parents rolled the dice that their daughter was something special, and she was. Not just a beautiful girl, she is extremely smart and motivated. Taking it all in stride, she has not forgotten where she came from, or the values that her parents instilled in her.
