Jennifer Lawrence is just as much The Girl on Fire as her fictional counterpart, and there's no better reason to make her our #WCW! The final installment of The Hunger Games film series debuts this weekend, and while her run as Katniss Everdeen may be ending, Jennifer's fire is far from going out.
Jennifer became a household name from her work in The Hunger Games and the newest X-Men movies. She received Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations for her roles in Winter's Bone and American Hustler, and she won both awards for her lead role in Silver Linings Playbook. While her experience now is mostly in the acting realm, she and pal Amy Schumer revealed plans to write and produce a female comedy together.
Jennifer is beloved for more than just her talent, though. She is known for being very outspoken, and she has remained herself throughout her rise to the top. Some of her most memorable moments include tripping on the red carpet and stairs during awards shows, photobombing friends on the red carpet, and regularly speaking whatever is on her mind.
Jennifer is also an advocate for equality and better treatment for women, especially in relation to how they are portrayed in Hollywood. She penned an essay for Lenny Letter regarding the pay gap between men and women. Also, she challenges how the media choose to show women's bodies, criticizing the constant pressure to be thinner and "perfect."
We admire Jennifer's work, but we admire her as a person even more. We love her fearlessness to be her own person and the confidence she exudes.
