Jennifer Lawrence Tops Forbes Most Powerful Actress List

Jennifer Lawrence Tops Forbes Most Powerful Actress List

Jennifer Lawrence has come a long way since 2010’s “Winter’s Bone.” She landed a Best Actress nomination for that hardscrabble drama, won the Oscar for “Silver Linings Playbook” and a supporting actress nomination for “American Hustle.” But it’s her franchise roles as Katniss Everdeen in the “Hunger Games” franchise and Mystique in the “X-Men” series that earned her a place at the top of Forbes’ most powerful actresses list–and 12th overall. Forbes estimates that she earned $34 million last year. Bravo. 

For those of you on EPIX, the site will stream back-to-back viewings of “The Hunger Games” and the world television premiere of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,”  as well as EPIX’s exclusive look at the making of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” with never before seen footage on Saturday, July 26 (on EPIX, EPIX-On-Demand, and all EPIX apps).

So glad for her. She absolutely deserves it! She's a real phenomenon. She’s a superstar and an acting genius at the same time. If one tries to think of similar examples, he's immediately stuck. Lawrence has an towering, almost otherwordly talent in acting and a truly unmatched star power, yet her demeanor is so human and down to earth, she really becomes one of us. It's obvious why she managed to become everyone's imaginary BFF and the ideal role model for young people all over the world. It's so refreshing to watch someone realizing how ridiculous Hollywood can be and who's not at all afraid of showing it and speak for things like the industry's obsession with body image and the sexualization of young actresses in this day and age. Her authentic, unpretentious and deliciously spontaneous personality brings a breath of a fresh air in a suffocating show business universe that celebrates inauthenticity. She's clearly not interested at all in playing the Hollywood game and that's truly remarkable. She can look stunning on a red carpet, but she's her goofy, quirky and hilarious self even there. Keep on being yourself, Jen. You really rock.
