Early Life and Background

Jennifer Lawrence is considered the most successful actress of her age after being the highest-paid actress in 2015 and 2016, and her films grossed over $5.5 billion globally. She is the first 1990s-born Oscar-winning actress.

Jennifer Shrader Lawrence was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on August 15, 1990, to children’s camp manager Karen (Koch) and construction worker Gary Lawrence. She has English, German, Irish, and Scottish ancestors and two elder brothers, Ben and Blaine.


Her career began when she went to Manhattan at 14 after failing out of 8th grade. After her first cold read, agents told her mother “it was the best cold read by a 14-year-old they had ever heard,” and tried to convince her stage mother to spend the summer in Manhattan. Jennifer was invited to take her photo by an agent while shooting an H&M ad after quitting the agency. Next day, that agency asked her to a cold-read audition at the studio. Again, the agents were impressed and persuaded her mother to let her spend the summer in NYC. Luckily, she did and starred in MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” ad and The Devil You Know (2013).

After that, her profession prompted her and her family to move to Los Angeles, where she appeared in The Bill Engvall Show (2007) and smaller films like The Poker House (2008) and The Burning Plain (2008).
