SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK
A natural talent, with a striking presence and undeniable energy, Academy
Award nominee JENNIFER LAWRENCE has established herself as one
of Hollywood's most promising actresses.
Jennifer recently wrapped production on SERENA, based on the novel by Ron
Rash, and to be directed by Oscar winner Susanne Bier. Lawrence will star
opposite Bradley Cooper as a newlywed couple who moves to North Carolina to
start their timber empire. Their ambition is all-consuming and dangerous —
neither is afraid to kill or destroy anyone who opposes them — but they're
turned against each other when Serena finds she can't bear children and then
launches a deadly vendetta against her husband's illegitimate son. The film is
slated for a 2013 release.
Jennifer could recently be seen starring in THE HUNGER GAMES, the first
installment of the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novel trilogy.
Jennifer portrayed 'Katniss Everdeen,' a young woman who joins a
fight-to-the-death contest to save her community.
In September, Jennifer will be seen in Relativity's HOUSE AT THE END OF THE
STREET opposite Elisabeth Shue and Max Thieriot. Jennifer could recently be seen
in Drake Doremus' LIKE CRAZY opposite Anton Yelchin and Felicity Jones, and in
Matthew Vaughn's X-MEN: FIRST CLASS as Mystique starring opposite Michael
Fassbender and James McAvoy. She also starred alongside Mel Gibson and Anton
Yelchin in THE BEAVER directed by Jodie Foster.
Previously, Jennifer's performance in WINTER'S BONE garnered her a 2011 Oscar
nomination for Best Actress in addition to nominations from the Screen Actors
Guild Awards, Golden Globe Awards, Independent Spirit Awards, and Critic's
Choice Awards. Additionally, she was honored with the Breakthrough Actress award
by the National Board of Review, the Rising Star Award at the Palm Springs Film
Festival, and the "New Hollywood Award" at the 2010 Hollywood Film Awards. The
critically acclaimed film, directed by Debra Granik, also received an Oscar
nomination for Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor
in addition to winning the 2010 Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
Other film credits include a lead role in Guillermo Arriaga's directorial
debut THE BURNING PLAIN, opposite Charlize Theron and Kim Basinger. The film
premiered at the 65th Venice Film Festival where Jennifer won the Marcello
Mastroianni Award for Best Young Actor. She also starred in Lori Petty's POKER
HOUSE opposite Selma Blair and Bokeem Woodbine, for which she was awarded the
prize of 'Outstanding Performance in the Narrative Competition' at the 2008 Los
Angeles Film Festival.
On television, Jennifer co-starred on three seasons of the TBS series THE
BILL ENGVALL SHOW. Written and created by Bill Engvall and Michael Leeson, THE
BILL ENGVALL SHOW is set in a Denver suburb and the comedy follows the life of
Bill Pearson' (played by Engvall), a family counselor whose own family could use
a little dose of counseling.
Reigning from Louisville, Kentucky and a childhood of local theatre
experience to her credit, Jennifer traveled to New York at age fourteen to
explore a professional career in acting. She quickly caught the eye of casting
directors and started acting in film and television during the summer of 2005
