What is Jennifer Lawrence's next film

Jennifer Lawrence turns 30: one like none

At first they didn't want the fans to see Katniss Everdeen, then they loved her. Jennifer Lawrence doesn't leave anyone indifferent. Recently, the bustling actress has calmed down.

Before the first "Hunger Games" film was released, fans of the book series criticized the selection of the leading actress: Jennifer Lawrence was too blonde to play the black-haired girl Katniss Everdeen and not thin enough, she suffered in the Books are always hungry. But Lawrence's first appearance as Katniss Everdeen, who goes from the ball to the figurehead of the resistance movement, silenced the critics. She was everything Katniss should be: strong and vulnerable, unsentimental and soulful, calculating and naive. Shortly after "The Hunger Games", the first of the four "Hunger Games" films, was shown in theaters, Lawrence won an Oscar. By then at the latest, the producers in the series should have known what luck they had made with her. The actress was only 22 years old when she won the Oscar. Seven and a half years have passed since then: Jennifer Lawrence turns 30 on August 15th.

Two months before her 30th birthday, she set up a Twitter account. Her three posts from mid-June had nothing to do with glamor, film or self-promotion. The Oscar winner denounced abuses in the United States, such as police brutality against black people. Lawrence presents himself to her social media followers as a member of the organization "Represent Us", which campaigns for a reform of the electoral system and against corrupt politics.

The "country girl from Kentucky" (so Lawrence about herself) has had a dreamy career. From 2012 to 2015 she celebrated blockbuster successes with the four "Hunger Games" films. It paid off. "Forbes" magazine named her the highest paid actress in the world twice in a row. Between June 2014 and June 2015 alone, she is said to have earned around $ 52 million in fees and advertising. With a loss of millions, Lawrence made headlines in early August when the film magazine "Variety" reported that she had gotten rid of her New York penthouse for "only" ten million dollars. In 2016, Lawrence reportedly paid five million more for the luxury apartment. Her first address is a mansion in the hills above Beverly Hills.

Discovered on the street at the age of 14

Lawrence was discovered in New York when he was 14 years old. "I was standing in the street and was looking at street dancers when someone took a picture of me," she said in an interview in 2012. "From then on it started. Model and film agencies called and wanted to meet me - which I did."

The breakthrough came with a serious role in the independent film "Winter's Bone" (2010). She played the daughter of an impoverished family in rural Missouri who had to care for her mother and little siblings. The critics overturned, Lawrence was nominated for the Oscar for the first time - at the age of 20 she was the second youngest contender for an award for best actress.

Quickly stumbled

She triumphed on the Oscar stage in February 2013 at the age of 22 with her role as a depressed young woman at the side of Bradley Cooper in the film "Silver Linings". The fact that she stumbled over the hem of her lush Dior dress on the way to the Oscar stage in front of an audience of millions was just a minor slip. Shortly afterwards, she quickly rebuked Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson. That was in the middle of a live interview that Lawrence gave shortly after winning the Oscar. The old star flirted unabashedly and greeted the young winner with compliments. "You are really rude," she grunted back fearlessly. "You look like a former friend of mine," the canvas macho continued undeterred. "Really, do I look like a new girlfriend too?" Lawrence countered. A movie-ready scene that caused laughter on the internet and brought a lot of ridicule to Nicholson.

"Do not be afraid, be loud!"

The wave of success continued for Lawrence. In 2014 she convinced as a crook in "American Hustle", for which she received an Oscar nomination for best supporting actress. She was nominated for the fourth time for an Oscar for her portrayal of the miracle mop inventor Joy Mangano in "Joy" (2015).

Lawrence doesn't take a sheet of paper for his mouth. With the appeal "Do not be afraid, be loud!" In 2016, after Donald Trump's election victory, she turned to women and minorities in particular and called for action. Now we have to fight harder for the environment, for our fellow human beings and for social justice.

Pole dance in Vienna

"I'm not going to apologize, I had a lot of fun that night," Lawrence defended an appearance on a pole dance pole in a nightclub in Vienna in 2017. She had celebrated with friends. A video clip of it was circulating on the Internet.

At that time, the actress was still in a relationship with director Darren Aronofsky. You were after shooting the psychological thriller "Mother!" came together in which Lawrence played the lead role of a young, scared wife. After a year, the celebrity couple broke up again. But Lawrence later made it official with the art dealer Cooke Maroney, who runs a gallery in New York. After a good year-long relationship, they tied the knot in October 2019.

Blockbuster and independent films

Lawrence still does not commit himself professionally. In the futuristic romance "Passengers" (2016), she traveled into space alongside Chris Pratt. In "X-Men: Dark Phoenix" (2019) she is the blue-faced Raven. In the thriller "Red Sparrow", as a Russian femme fatale, she had to imitate a foreign accent for the first time in her acting career. After filming "Red Sparrow", she took a year-long acting break from February 2018, but did not remain idle. She started a production company called "Excellent Cadaver".

This will also produce Lawrence's next film: With the independent drama "Red, White and Water", she is returning to her roots after many blockbusters. The director is Lila Neugebauer, who has so far made a name for herself primarily in the theater.

Other projects have already been determined for Lawrence, but these are being delayed due to the Corona standstill in Hollywood. In the spring it was announced that Lawrence and Cate Blanchett would play astronomers warning of a dangerous asteroid in the planned Netflix comedy "Don't Look Up". And she will soon be in front of the camera for Paolo Sorrentino's "Mob Girl". It sounds like a second Oscar before the 35th birthday.
