Jennifer Lawrence mainstreams it with “X-Men: First Class”

By Kim Palacios

hollywoodnews.com: Actress Jennifer Lawrence shot to the top of the IMDB Star Meter this weekend in the wake of the “X-Men: First Class” release. The Oscar-nominated actress, who lost out time and time again to Natalie Portman for Best Female Lead grabs in the 2010 awards season, is moving into the mainstream with her current “X-Men: First Class” and upcoming “Hunger Games” roles.

Lawrence received nominations for the fantastically-executed indie flick, “Winter’s Bone”, which was nominated in more than 30 notable film association awards. Though Lawrence won several “Best Breakout Star”-type honors, she (and Annette Benning) were largely overshadowed by the year’s most ubiquitous female victor, “Black Swan’s” Natalie Portman.

Lawrence garnered attention when she arrived at the 2010 Academy Awards, stunning red carpet fashion critics with her striking physique in a red Calvin Klein Collection dress. Though she continues her work in smaller films, like “The Beaver”, big budget blockbusters like this weekend’s “X-Men: First Class” and 2012’s adaptation of the hugely popular “Hunger Games” (which is currently filming) will make this previously obscure actress’ moniker a household name.
