Entertainment Weekly’s Entertainer of the Year “swears like a sailor,” according to the cover of the magazine’s Dec. 4 issue, and at age 25 already has an Oscar and two huge movie franchises under her belt.
She’s actress Jennifer Lawrence, who has had a lot to do with the success of both the “Hunger Games” movies and the “X-Men” series.
Lawrence won an Academy Award for “Silver Linings Playbook” in 2013 and has two other Oscar nominations, for “American Hustle” and “Winter’s Bone.”
“Hollywood’s most bankable actress,” as the magazine calls her, has also chalked up a ton of other awards, including two Golden Globes, and just as she’s apparently bidding farewell to the “Hunger Games” franchise with the arrival of “Mockingjay — Part 2,” she’s regrouping for “Joy,” due in theaters this Christmas. The movie reunites Lawrence with director David O. Russell, who was behind the cameras on “Silver Linings Playbook” and “American Hustle.”
