What Makes Jennifer Lawrence the Hottest and Most In-Demand Star in Hollywood?
Hollywood is a dreamland for most people in the world, and they look at the Hollywood celebrities’ lifestyles and fame with nostalgia but it is wise to remember that not everyone’s dreams come true.
Among the millions of failed dreams, the dreams of a daughter of a construction worker and a children's camp manager came true when she decided to sign with the CESD Talent Agency despite her parent's disapproval.
Yes, that’s how a cute, smart teenager changed her life and became the most in-demand star in Hollywood and she is Jennifer Lawrence.
Jennifer Lawrence’s father Gary Lawrence is a construction worker and her mother Karen (née Koch) is a children’s camp manager. Jennifer was born in the Indian Hills suburbs of Louisville, Kentucky and she made her way to Hollywood. Lawrence describes her childhood as an "unhappy" experience. How did a girl with this background become so successful within a few short years?
Is Jennifer Lawrence the most talented actress? There are many actresses that have more acting and performing talent than Lawrence has.
Is Jennifer Lawrence the most beautiful girl in the world? Oh! Come on! We know many celebrities and teenage girls prettier than Lawrence.
Then what makes Jennifer Lawrence the hottest and most in-demand star in Hollywood?
It was her smart choices and being wise in selecting roles that matched her charismatic personality.
I’m not saying that Katniss Everdeen star Jennifer Lawrence is a bad actress but that is not the main reason that made her the most in-demand star in Hollywood, Vulture’s Most Valuable Star of 2015 and four time Oscar nominee.
Jennifer Lawrence graduated two years early with high test scores and acting became a natural fit for her. She is naturally smart and this is what’s helping her to attain such lofty heights in the entertainment world.
Let’s have a look at Jennifer Lawrence’s choice of roles that makes her the hottest and most in-demand star in the Hollywood.
01. Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games Trilogy:
Katniss Everdeen, The Hunger Games series leading role became so well-known solely because of Lawrence’s role. The Hunger Games franchise would not have become this much of a success without Jennifer Lawrence.
We already have movies with a similar concept of The Hunger Games such as Divergent and Giver but Jennifer Lawrence made this series more well-known and successful. Is it because of her acting? Of course not, it’s because Katniss portrays Lawrence’s natural character, which fit the role perfectly and she knew it.
When she sang “coming to the tree,” I thought, “This is gonna touch every single teenager’s soul.” And that’s exactly what happened in the next movie of the trilogy. The Hunger Games - Mockingjay - Part 2 box office was $653.4 million.
Jennifer Lawrence knows what she has to choose and how to perform in a way that she is better and in the way she knows best, not in the way of just being a good performer or actor, but in the way to becoming the most successful and the most in-demand celebrity.

02. Mystique, X-Men: First Class Reboot Series:
Is Jennifer Lawrence as good as Rebecca Romijn is as Mystique in the movie action sequences? Definitely not, in my opinion, even though Jennifer Lawrence was purposely given more screen time in X-Men: Days of Future Past to get the benefits from her star value. That would continue in X-Men: Apocalypse as well. You will understand what I mean when you watch the movie trailers.
Jennifer Lawrence knows what to choose next and what will keep her ahead of the field.
03. Tiffany, Silver Linings Playbook:
Jennifer Lawrence has a rare quality that most actors don’t have. She can adapt to a variety of characters. On one hand, she can perform as Mystique and be accepted by the audience, and on the other hand, she can also score as a widow.
Jennifer Lawrence made a volatile Tiffany into a sweet, vulnerable and humorous person.
She was ‘pretty good’ (a touch of sarcasm here) in the film; Best Picture nominee won her the Academy Award for Best Actress and the Golden Globe in the same category.
Jennifer Lawrence as Tiffany was the second Oscar nomination for her.
See, she knows exactly what she can do and how to choose a role and does not have to depend on similar types of characters for every film.
04. Rosalyn, American Hustle:
Jennifer Lawrence was not the main character in American Hustle but she stole the audience’s heart with the part that she did play. Lawrence garnered her third Oscar nomination for the part, this time in a supporting role and she won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress.
In summary, I think we now understand how wise and smart Jennifer Lawrence is in choosing the roles and adding her own charismatic personality to each one.
The decisions Jennifer Lawrence is making in her personal life and the personality she is adding to the roles she selects are the key facts that make her the hottest and most in-demand star in Hollywood.
