Jennifer Lawrence was born on August 15, 1990 in Louisville, Kentucky, USA. A real tomboy as a child, she wants to do everything like her two older brothers: basketball, field hockey, and other men’s sports, nothing scares her. As a teenager, she discovered a passion for the theater and spent all her free time playing in the theater plays of her city’s parish. At the age of 14, she tried to convince her parents to move to New York to find an agent. In vain, she will have to wait until she passes her baccalaureate, two years ahead of time, before she can finally start the job she dreams of.

Between 2006 and 2008, her stubbornness began to pay off as she gradually landed roles in Thomas Carter’s Company Town, then in several television series (Cold case, Medium, and Monk). 2008 is the year of her consecration as she obtains a first role in Guillermo Arriaga’s feature film, Far from the Scorched Earth, alongside Charlize Theron: an interpretation which earned her the prize for Best Female Hope at the Mostra of Venice.

In 2010, for her brilliant role in the auteur film Winter’s Bone, she was nominated for an Oscar in the Best Actress in a Drama category. The following year, she appeared in a more mainstream film, The Beaver Complex, directed by Jodie Foster. Not afraid to alternate genres, she then tried her hand at Blockbuster with Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: The Beginning, where she played Mystique, the mutant member of the Brotherhood of the Bad Mutants. But it is with Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games, in the role of the film’s heroine, a teenager who must face the repression of a totalitarian state, that the actress is revealed to the general public at the beginning of 2012. The film is a real hit in the United States.
