Becoming a household name through her lead role in 'The Hunger Games' movie series, as well as her previous role as Mystique in 'X-Men: First Class', Jennifer Lawrence is now one of the biggest A-list actresses in the world. Though both are fairly recent franchises, there was a time when Lawrence nearly made a name for herself through a popular television series; 'Gossip Girl'.

Now, many of us who enjoyed 'Gossip Girl' know it to be the show that catapulted the likes of Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Penn Badgley, Chace Crawford and Ed Westwick into superstardom. If Lawrence had been successful in her audition for the series however, we may never have even heard of Lively, as Serena was the role she was going for.

“I was drunk and this guy asked me for a selfie and I was like, ‘No, thank you, no,” Lawrence said about the encounter in the Hungarian capital a few months ago. “Then he was like, ‘Please my girlfriend will never believe me’, then my friend was like, “’If your girlfriend won’t believe you, then she’s not the one’.”
It was a very different experience for the young Oscar winner.
Darren Aronofsky's new film Mother! is causing quite a stir among critics. After its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival this week, the filmmaker met the press with his girlfriend, the movie's star Jennifer Lawrence, who plays a woman who is driven over the edge as she sets up home and starts a family with husband Javier Bardem.

Lawrence was asked about 'Passengers' "creepy" plot.
Jennifer Lawrence has responded to the controversy that greeted her movie Passengers late last year, revealing she’s “disappointed” in herself for not spotting the flaws in the script.
The 26 year old actress starred opposite Chris Pratt in the sci-fi romance Passengers, which was met with scepticism and criticism from movie-goers. As well as underperforming at the box office when it was released in December 2016, many people described the plot as “creepy”, in which Pratt’s character, accidentally waking up from an intergalactic deep sleep 90 years from his destination, wakes up Lawrence’s character in order have some company – effectively killing her in the process.
Lawrence was grilled about the movie in a new interview, and while she defended the project and her part in it, she said that she wished in retrospect she had looked into it more closely before participating.
Lawrence was just one of more than 100 stars who fell victim to the notorious 'celebgate' hacking incident back in 2014.
Jennifer Lawrence has spoken out about the privacy hack she suffered nearly three years ago when nude photos of her went viral, saying that she was “blindsided” and the fear of the same thing happening again is always there.
The 26 year old Hollywood megastar told Vogue for its 125th anniversary in a new interview about the 2014 hacking, saying: “I think people saw it for what it was, which was a sex crime, but that feeling, I haven't been able to get rid of it.”
Edward Majerczyk of Chicago was arrested after police investigated the 2014 ‘celebgate’ affair and pleaded guilty in July last year of stealing images of more than 100 celebs, including Lawrence.

Lawrence attended a preview showing of the violent new Broadway adaptation of George Orwell's '1984', starring Olivia Wilde and Tom Sturridge.
The new Broadway adaptation of George Orwell’s classic novel ‘Nineteen Eighty-Four’ has been grabbing headlines for its shocking and often stomach-turning violence in preview performances, even causing a few audience members to faint or leave the theatre to be sick.
One of these is believed to be Hollywood royalty Jennifer Lawrence, who was reported to have been sick while watching a preview of the play on Monday night (July 17th) in New York City.
“Midway through the show, Jennifer Lawrence bolted from her seat. Several people saw her getting sick in the lobby. The ushers were very helpful and courteous in helping her out,” a source told Page Six.

Chris Pratt has spoken a little about what it was like filming sex scenes with his Passengers co-star Jennifer Lawrence in a new interview, revealing that he felt that “the responsibility falls on me” to make things as comfortable as possible.

It's not all slanging matches and bad Instagram posts.
Apropos their stand-off on BBC Radio 1 which saw them trade a number of insults, the reality of the situation is that 'Passengers' stars Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence are best friends. Despite their public pranks, they have some really nice things to say about each other.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are the best friends of the year
The chemistry between these two talented stars has been obvious since promotion of the sci-fi thriller began, she we can only imagine how this will translate to the cinema screen with their forthcoming movie. It's a sign of an amazing friendship that they can happily make fun of each other - Chris with his Instagram prank of cropping Jennifer out of selfies, Jennifer with her revenge attack on a 'Passengers' bus banned on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the pair of them on Radio 1's 'Playground Insults' - but it's an even better sign when they can be so genuine with their appraisals of each other.
Their comedic chemistry is some of the best we've seen for a while.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt have had this amazing rivalry going on since promotion for their new film 'Passengers' started, which culminated in the pair of them trading creative insults at each other in a contest on BBC Radio 1. Needless to say, some of their insights were hugely entertaining.
Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are 2016's best double act
Radio presenters Scott Mills and Chris Stark had Jen and Chris face other in a segment called Playground Insults, where they had to think of mean things to say that were so ridiculous they made each other laugh - the game ending when one of them 'loses it' or comes back with a 'killer insult'.

The dream team of Cooper, De Niro and Lawrence have reunited again for David O. Russell’s biopic ‘Joy’.
After working together on 2012’s Silver Linings Playbook, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, Robert De Niro and David O. Russell have teamed up again, this time for biopic Joy. Joy tells the story of inventor Joy Mangano, who broke the rules as a female to become a millionaire business woman thanks to her miracle mop. But for Cooper the real ‘joy’ of filming came from working with Lawrence, De Niro and Russell again, a team that he says he’d ‘do anything’ to make more movies with.
Bradley Cooper stars in Joy.
Cooper’s first time starring opposite Jennifer Lawrence came in the Oscar nominated Silver Linings Playbook, a year later the pair went on to star in another award-nominated film, American Hustle. Speaking about their on-screen chemistry Cooper said: “She’s kind of the best really at what she does.”
Suzanne Collins' saga comes to a suitably epic conclusion in a climactic series of battles that are packed with emotional kicks to the gut. Director Francis Lawrence continues to show remarkable reverence for the source novels while relying on his A-list cast to bring layers of nuance to even the smallest roles. The result is a massively textured war movie that's packed with darkly personal moments and glimpses of wit and spark. It's also a satisfying conclusion to the franchise that avoids the usual Hollywood bombast.
As the rebels prepare to attack Panem's Capitol and President Snow (Donald Sutherland), the rebellion's figurehead Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) decides to take matters into her own hands. Rebel leaders Coin and Plutarch (Julianne Moore and Philip Seymour Hoffman) try to stay one step ahead of Katniss, using her as the Mockingjay to rally the troops. With Gale (Liam Hemsworth), a not-quite-unbrainwashed Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and a small group of cohorts, Katniss works her way across the bombed-out city to Snow's mansion, intending to put an arrow through his heart. But the battle takes a shocking twist, and Katniss has to make a difficult decision about doing the right thing no matter what it costs her.
Right from the start, the filmmakers continue to echo Katniss' earliest act of heroism when she volunteered for the Hunger Games to protect her sister Prim (Willow Shields) and then vowed to keep Peeta safe in the violent arena. These are the things that drive her right to the very end of this saga, holding the audience in an emotional grip. This means that the political nastiness, violent warfare and publicity posturing all have a much deeper resonance for the audience, while for Katniss they are virtually irrelevant. Her mission remains untainted: she just wants to protect her loved ones and make the future safe. Which is why her speeches carry such rousing power.

Lawrence shot the scenes as part of her upcoming project 'Passengers', which is released in December 2016.
Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she had to get “really, really drunk” in order to marshal her nerves ahead of filming a sex scene with fellow Hollywood A-lister Chris Pratt, because he’s a married man. She explained that the scene, for their upcoming movie Passengers, is the “most vulnerable I’ve ever been.”
“I got really, really drunk,” she revealed in a new feature with The Hollywood Reporter, but that didn’t end up solving the problem. “That led to more anxiety when I got home because I was like, ‘What have I done? I don't know’.”

The star insists she DOES wash her hands after using the toilet.
Oh Jennifer. We knew there was a reason why we loved you. 'The Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence has finally addressed gross rumours that she doesn't wash her hands after going to the bathroom by posting a message to her fans on Facebook alongside a brilliant video.
Jennifer Lawrence is honestly not that gross
The talk started after Jen did an interview with MTV alongside her 'Mockingjay' co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. They were addressing the trio's most disgusting habits, during which Jen's dry sense of humour didn't compute with some viewers. 'I don't wash my hands after I go to the bathroom', she said with a sweet smile, before laughing. Liam played along with it, adding, 'Then she likes to come back and literally put her hands all over your face and in your mouth'. ''What's this smell like?!'' Josh then demonstrated.
The final instalment of 'The Hunger Games' saga carries a 12A certificate, but is its most violent yet.
The final instalment of The Hunger Games franchise, Mockingjay Part 2 is said to be the saga’s most violent film yet, with scenes showing the bombing of young children and a public execution. But director Francis Lawrence and star Natalie Dormer have defend the film’s level of violence, saying they didn't want to shy away from the book’s original content.

“In the visual interpretation of the stories, I wanted to make sure that we were again focusing on the emotional consequence of it, not the carnage, not the blood… you’ll notice there’s very, very little blood. That’s not what I wanted to explore, that’s not what I’m interested in,” said director Francis Lawrence.
Some of the cast from the billion-dollar franchise would return if any more books were written
Jennifer Lawrence has stood as Katniss Everdeen against the Capitol for the final time in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and, while she has not spoken of her desire to reprise her role for further films, many of The Hunger Games cast has.

The actress talks about how she was looking at her own mentality when writing on the subject
Jennifer Lawrence’s essay about the Hollywood gender pay gap has sparked a real debate and caused actors on both sides of the fence to speak out about the issue.

Jennifer Lawrence has continued to defend her right to speak out about the Hollywood gender pay gap
In a Los Angeles press conference about her latest movie - The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 - the 25-year-old actress spoke about how disappointed in her own mentality she had become.

As President apparent Snow's grip over the citizen's of Panem increases, Katnis and underground allies realise their mission is more important than ever. What began as a battle for their personal freedom has turned into a much bigger cause.

His comments come after Jennifer Lawrence's essay on the pay divide in Hollywood attracted support and praise.
Jennifer Lawrence’s recent essay pointing out the gender pay gap in Hollywood was the latest in a series of incidences this year of celebrities highlighting the issue in a high-profile manner. While it has received a warm reception from almost all of Lawrence’s colleagues, her American Hustle co-star Jeremy Renner has said it is “not my job” to assist female actors in negotiating equal pay deals.
44 year old Renner was asked by Business Insider on Tuesday (October 20th) whether he would play an active role in helping female co-stars in negotiating fair deals, he replied: “That’s not my job… …I don’t know contracts and money and all that sort of stuff.”
Jeremy Renner was asked about Jennifer Lawrence's essay
'Burnt' co-stars Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller are among those showing support for Lawrence's essay.
Miller and Cooper, who were interviewed on the red carpet at the premiere of their new movie Burnt on Wednesday (October 14th), both weighed in on the article that Lawrence published via Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny the previous day.
33 year old Miller revealed that she once turned down a play because she was offered less than half the pay of her male co-star – in a two-person production. She told E! News that she reluctantly did “what we have to start doing, unfortunately, at the expense of our creative dreams… …I walked away from a play I wanted to do because I was offered less than half of what the other man was offered and it was just the two of us.”
Gwyneth Paltrow discussed the gender pay gap in Hollywood.
Gwyneth Paltrow is adding her name to the growing list of female (and many male) actors who are appalled with the substantial gender pay gap in Hollywood. The 43-year-old Mortdecai actor and Goop founder hit back at the film industry for its inequality and sexism during a recent interview. She also used one very prominent example to prove her point.

Katniss Everdeen is determined to take down President Snow once and for all. Too many lives have been sacrificed and too many homes destroyed while the Capitol has brainwashed and controlled the people of Panem. Now re-united with Peeta after his rescue from Snow's clutches, Katniss gathers her friends from District 13 - Gale, Finnick and Cressida - and sets out on the ultimate mission to free Panem, and fight Snow to the death. But it seems it's not only Snow that wants Katniss dead, as she becomes increasingly paranoid about some of the supposed rebels. Facing increasing uncertainty, more tragedy and some of the worse warfare she could possibly imagine, Katniss starts to realise that ending the nightmare won't end the fear or the collective sorrow.
Lawrence and her 'Hunger Games' co-stars Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson are the latest celebrities to express disbelief at the success of Trump's campaign so far.
Lawrence was in conversation with Entertainment Weekly alongside her two Hunger Games co-stars Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, promoting the forthcoming final instalment of the dystopian series called Mockingjay – Part 2, when she made the comments. Perhaps if Trump wins, she’ll be returning as Katniss Everdeen to lead a rebellion in real life!
“If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” the 25 year old said in forthright manner. Hemsworth chimed in: “I’ll back you up on that.”
