Jennifer Lawrence is the “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week”

By Sean O’Connell Most actors become movie stars first, then work twice as hard as they normally would to become an Oscar nominee.

But Jennifer Lawrence has reversed the trend. The beautiful blonde turned heads with her courageous performance in Debra Granik’s “Winter’s Bone,” earning her first Oscar nomination and systematically launching her career into the stratosphere.

It has been a non-stop ride for Lawrence ever since. Hollywood’s latest “It Girl” wowed crowds on red carpets throughout the 2010-11 awards season. She and Anton Yelchin stole “The Beaver” away from seasoned veterans Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson. And this Friday, she’s about to expand her range to blockbuster status by taking over the sexy Mystique role from Rebecca Romijn for Matthew Vaughn’s “X-Men: First Class.”

But just when you thought things couldn’t get any bigger for Lawrence, she announces she’ll shift from “X-Men” to a four-part adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games,” a movie franchise that is drawing comparisons to the “Harry Potter” series in terms of size and scope. Does this mean Lawrence is destined for a level of superstardom afforded Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and the “Potter” cast? There’s no doubt she has the talent and poise to back that up. For all of her career decisions of late, we are proud to announce that Jennifer Lawrence is the “Hollywood Movie Star of the Week.”
