Born in Louisville, Kentucky, playing sports and dealing with two older brothers, who would imagine she would one day be starring in the biggest box office hits? Starting off modeling in Burger King and H&M ads, this now “it girl” has certainly made her way up the social status ladder in Hollywood. She is now on every magazine, every red carpet event, and wearing the hottest designers.
Jen has been in X-Men: First Class, Winter’s Bone, and many more films. She is most known for her role in The Hunger Games, but now is breaking into other movie roles like the Silver Linings Playbook featuring Bradley Cooper. Jen moved to Manhattan at only 14 years of age to start acting in small TV parts. It seems she is embracing any role thrown at her to test her skills as an actress. Her acceptance speech at this years Golden Globe ceremony raised eyebrows, but her adoration of Meryl Streep is a perfect example of her understanding of who paved the way for her. Jen comes off as a down-to-earth, funny girl through interviews and acceptance speeches. Says she doesn’t go out much, but when she does that she only thinks about her couch. “Nothing makes me feel better then junk food and reality TV.”
FW can’t wait to see the reviews after she hosts Saturday Night Live this month. Jennifer is only 23 years old and she is definitely making a name for herself. Having older brothers who keep her grounded by making fun of her should insure her ego to stay at a minimum. No one wants to see another young Hollywood starlet lose everything so quick. We wish her the best for the future, and can’t wait to see what else she can do.
