With an Academy Award for Best Actress and a 3-time Oscar award nomination and one win, it is no surprise that the Jennifer Lawrence net worth is estimated to be about $53 million USD. She is best known for her role in the award winning Hunger Games trilogy and as Mystique in the new X-Men movie.
What is the secret behind Jennifer Lawrence Net Worth?
Born in Kentucky in August, 1990, if there was one thing going for the hunger games actress, it was determination and persistence. Jennifer Shrader Lawrence began her acting career in her Kentucky as a child, acting in local theaters. While still in her early teens, she persuaded her parents to move to New York City, where there were greater opportunities for her as an actress. The plan was to search for a talent agency that could help her fulfill her dream of becoming an actress. Before long, she began to get small roles in television shows and commercials.
She received a lot of praise for her part in “The Bill Engvall Show”; that show earned her a lot of accolades, but not like her part in the movie, Winter’s Bone, which got her a nod at the Oscars and added a substantial amount to the Jennifer Lawrence net worth.
Jennifer Lawrence starred in The Silver Lining Playbook, and won the Oscar for Best Actress. This made her value as an actress jump. But nothing could have predicted the raving success which was the Hunger Games trilogy, with Hunger Games: Catching Fire, being one of the highest grossing films that came out that year. She went on to act in American Hustle and in X-Men. Her success has been phenomenal and there is no doubt that the greater chunk of her income is from her acting.
Her salary alone in Hunger Games 1 was $500,000 USD, but after the insane success of that movie, her salary sky rocketed. Although the exact figures have not yet been revealed, sources have disclosed that it was quite substantial. She has been in an on-again, off-again long-term relationship with British born actor, Nicholas Hoult.
