According to Variety, the 2013 box office is set to reach all kinds of records, and Lawrence can be credited for an important part of that. The actress appeared in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and American Hustle, and that was only in the last two months of the year.
She was voted the top money-making star of the year by an annual poll of motion picture theater owners and film buyer, conducted by Quigley Publishing Company, according to Variety.
Sandra Bullock was voted the second most bankable actor of the year — in part to her roles in Gravity and The Heat. Lawrence's Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle costar Bradley Cooper landed at third on the poll. He also appeared in The Hangover III in 2013.
Lawrence was on a poll from the company last year, as one of their Stars of Tomorrow, along with Joseph Gordon Levitt. In 2013, the actors names to that list include Amy Adams and James Franco.
