10 Reasons Jennifer Lawrence Is the Most-Liked Actor in Hollywood
by Jennifer Lafferty
Few young actresses are as widely admired as Jennifer Lawrence, and none of them is as well-paid. Not only has she proven herself to be an exceptionally talented and versatile actress, but the Oscar winner’s natural charm has endeared her to a diverse population of moviegoers. She has an enormous and loyal fan base for many reasons, but here are 10 of our favorites.
1. Girl Next Door Appeal
Jennifer Lawrence may be a superstar now, but she could have easily been the girl next door to you growing up. While many actresses have worn this label over the years, Lawrence genuinely comes across as a warm, sincere, down-to-earth girl. She’s so relatable that both men and women want to be her best friend.
2. She Does It All
During her short time in the spotlight, Lawrence has impressed moviegoers with an amazing range in both genre and character. From her most famous role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games franchise to her emotionally charged performance in Silver Linings Playbook and colorful portrayal of Rosalyn Rosenfeld in American Hustle, it seems Lawrence is up for anything.
3. Style Icon
Whether she is rocking an artsy look, sporting casual elegance, or showing off her edgy side, Jennifer Lawrence always looks comfortable and real. She has a fun, flirty, and imaginative style that is all her own.
4. Chemistry with Bradley Cooper
Lawrence has shared the screen with many interesting actors, but her amazing chemistry with frequent costar Bradley Cooper is obvious. Like Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy or Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan before them, the magic between Cooper and Lawrence is undeniable.
5. It Girl
Charisma shines through in this leading lady whether she’s acting a part on the big screen or walking the red carpet, and it’s one more thing about Lawrence that makes her simply irresistible.
6. She’s Hot
J. Law is the furthest thing from a diva, but that doesn’t mean she can’t bring the glam when the occasion calls for it, and she has proven she can hold her own among Hollywood’s most dazzling starlets.
7. Good Sport
In a business that often takes itself very seriously, Lawrence refreshingly does not, even despite her A-list status. Whether she’s photobombing her famous peers or tripping up the stairs at the Academy Awards, she’s always ready to laugh at herself.
8. Movies Worth Seeing
Despite her goofball antics, Lawrence is a serious actor who chooses interesting and provocative films to perform in. Her upcoming slate of movies, which includes the quirky rom com The Rosie Project, the inspiring biopic Joy, and the outer space romance Passengers, is typical of Lawrence’s diverse body of work.
9. Sassy and sweet
Boldness coupled with femininity is a very appealing combination in a female star, and if anyone knows how to balance sugar and spice with fearsome girl power, it’s Jennifer Lawrence.
10. Everyone Loves a Winner
You can’t help but admire an overachiever. Lawrence snagged an Oscar by her early twenties and is amassing more hit movies every year. Whatever the future holds, Lawrence will likely continue to surprise us and exceed our expectations.
