Jennifer Lawrence is the girl on fire. Everyone is a little obsessed with the quirky-yet-confident actress from Louisville, Kentucky. Born on August 15, 1990, she got her big break at age 14 when she was vacationing in New York City with her family. She stayed in the city that summer, acting in commercials for MTV and filming the thriller Devil You Know. Her family then moved to Los Angeles so that she could continue to pursue her career. She got small roles on the television series Medium, Monk, and Cold Case before landing a bigger role on The Bill Engvall Show. While on the series, she also appeared in movies like The Poker House and The Burning Pain. She went on to appear in the critically-acclaimed film Winter Bones, which earned her multiple nominations during award season. After her recognition, opportunities began to pour in, and she has since appeared on the big screen in The Beaver, X-Men: First Class, The Falling, Silver Linings Playbook, and American Hustle. The actress is perhaps best known for her lead role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games series.

When it comes to her relationship and love life, Jennifer Lawrence has had a steady stream of serious boyfriends. She was rumored to have an on-set romance with Graham Martin while filming The Bill Engvall Show. She then went on to date her X-Men co-star Nicholas Hoult. The famous couple stepped out together for the first time at a Screen Actor Guild awards after-party and dated for two years before their celebrity break-up in 2013. They then rekindled their celebrity romance over the summer before splitting again due to distance. Since their break-up, she has been linked to Gwyneth Paltrow’s ex, 37-year-old Coldplay rocker Chris Martin.
