I’m not sure there has been a down to earth actress that seems to relate to us regular people. Even the most “normal” actress still seems above what the rest of us are. We finally seem to have an actress that it just one of us; she just happens to be an amazing actress. That actress I’m talking about is the Louisville, Kentucky native, Jennifer Lawrence.
If you haven’t heard of Jennifer Lawrence, you must have been dead for the last few days. That is the only way that you wouldn’t have heard anything about her. You would have had to spend the last year on an abandoned island somewhere if you haven’t heard from her until recently. She was first noticed a few years ago when she was nominated for Best Actress with her performance in Winter’s Bone. Now her fame as escalated with her portrayal of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise. I truly believe that The Hunger Games will just be a blip on this young actresses career. She is not going to be known forever as Katniss unlike her Twilight counterpart, Kristen Stewart, whom will most likely always be known as Bella.
What makes Jennifer less likely to be known for one very popular role versus someone else? It would be her acting. If you have seen Jennifer in action, you will know that this girl can act. It comes so effortlessly from her. The emotion that she is able to give off is stunning and she is destined for greater things than a young adult series turned movie, no matter how great that series may be. If you haven’t seen Silver Linings Playbook, you must now. It is the role that Jennifer was nominated and won Best Actress with this year. She plays such a complex character and gives off every emotion that she should. She does it very well at that.
Even I believe that it is impressive and admirable how unimpressed Jennifer seems to be with Hollywood. She has even talked out against these starlets that act like they’re better than everyone else. I think she has a good chance to continue her life unspoiled by the evils that Hollywood can bring out of people. We are talking about the girl who almost passed on playing Katniss cause she was fearful of becoming too famous. Jennifer just liked playing parts in movies like Winter’s Bone or Silver Linings Playbook because she just liked acting.
Many of these reasons are why Jennifer Lawrence is the people’s actress. I have heard no one bad mouth her or say she hasn’t deserved anything that she has earned in her short career. I think in the years ahead, we will see Jennifer to more and more great films. Spotted in, we will probably see some big productions and I am hoping maybe a few comedies. If her SNL performance or her interviews are anything to go by, she could do well in comedy. Plus, I’m talking about a girl that I feel could do well in any movie she wanted to do.
Below is a video of Jennifer’s post-Oscar interview. It really shows how laid back and unimpressed with Hollywood that she has been known for. After you watch that, please leave comments on your opinion of Jennifer below in the comment section.
