The world has completely fallen in love with Jen for her funny, relatable and totally down to earth personality. But there are still a few things she wishes we didn't know about her.
Stepping out earlier this month with her fiancé Cooke Maroney for the pair's engagement party in New York City, J-Law looked every bit the blushing bride skipping down the street in a cream coloured, low cut dress by J.Wells Bridal.
As the actress, just shy of her 29th birthday, prepares to walk down the aisle, here are 12 things you didn't know about Jennifer Lawrence.
1. Lawrence Dropped Out of School at 14.
Born in Kentucky to her parents Gary (a construction worker) and Karen (a summer camp manager) Lawrence describes her upbringing as rough and tumble, attributing this to the fact that she had two older brothers. The family has English, German, Irish, and Scottish ancestry. Jennifer often speaks of feeling like a misfit during high school and has said that her anxieties vanished when she performed on stage and that acting gave her a sense of accomplishment. So, when she was given the opportunity to pursue acting full time at 14, Jennifer convinced her parents to let her drop out of school.
2. Before she was famous Jennifer scored a job modelling for Abercrombie & Fitch.
At 5'9 it comes as no surprise that Jennifer once tried her hand at modelling. During a segment for BBC’s “The Graham Norton Show,” the actress recalled a shoot she did during her short-lived modelling career for the clothing company in which none of her photos were used.
“They wanted natural pictures so they made us play football on the beach,” she said. “The other models played football in a pretty way but not me. My face was bright red, and I was sweaty with flaring nostrils.”
3. She has been the victim of vicious body-shaming.
Jennifer has shared a 'humiliating' and 'degrading' incident, which took place in her formative years in Hollywood, when a female producer made her stand in a nude line-up only to body-shame her. She was told to use the naked photos of herself as inspiration for her diet. At a mere 63kg Jennifer used the incident to shed light on the ridiculous pressures on actresses in Hollywood to look a certain way.
4. She was was the highest-paid actress in the world in 2015 and 2016.
Beating out stars like Julia Roberts, Amy Adams, Mila Kunis and Charlize Theron J-Law took home the title for two consecutive years.
As of 2019,Jennifer Lawrence's net worth is estimated to be roughly $130 million dollars, making her one of the youngest and highest-paid actresses in the world.
5. Jennifer Lawrence got into epic catfight after smoking weed at Ellen DeGeneres’ 60th birthday party.
The actress hilariously recalled on The Howard Stern Show a fight she got into with a woman immediately after getting high at DeGeneres’ February bash. After smoking “a joint with some rappers” the star reportedly “entered a different universe” and recalls getting into a play acted fight with a stranger in the line for the bathroom. of course, it was all in good jest but it is nice to know that even a-listers have to wait in line for the bathroom at parties. Lawrence openly admits to smoking both marijuana and cigarettes regularly.
6. Her fiancé is an art gallery director.
Cooke studied art history at New York University, and now holds a job as a director at Gladstone 64, which is the Gladstone Gallery's Upper East Side location. He also reps several famous art clients, including Lena Dunham's dad.
However before meeting her Mr. Right Lawrence has dated a slew of celebrities. Her most public relationship was with British actor Nicholas Hoult and her most talked-about fling was with Chris Martin.
7. She is a total natural beauty.
Lawrence very rarely wears makeup if she isn't attending a Hollywood red carpet event and as far as anyone knows Jen's gorgeous face and figure is all her own.
8. Jen's LA Home was once owned by Ellen DeGeneres and Jessica Simpson.
In 2014, Lawrence paid $8.225M for the house, which is located in the Beverly Hills, Los Angeles gated community called "Hidden Valley Estates". In 2017, property gossip columns went wild when the Oscar-winner reportedly paid a bit more than $9 million for a loft-style condo in a celebrity-packed and allegedly paparazzi-proof Tribeca building that, curiously enough, soon popped up as a luxury rental at $27,500 per month. It looks like Jen may be ready to make the permanent move to NYC with her partner as the pair were seen apartment in the city earlier this month.
9. Jen is “nuts” for her dog Pippi Lawrence-Stocking.
In 2017 the actress got into a tiff with a A TMZ videographer who reached out to pet her pooch. That is, until Lawrence scooped up the dog from the sidewalk and muttered, “Don’t touch my dog, you f**king loser.” its clear Jen loves her "fur baby" who is a a Jack Russell Terrier mix. She even told Seth Myers during an interview that, “If you walk into my home, I have an acrylic painting [of Pippi] above my fireplace,”.
10. in 2013 Jen was hacked and private information including nude videos and photos were shared across the internet.
The release of private celebrity photographs, including those belonging to Lawrence, Kate Upton, Kirsten Dunst, Cara Delevingne, Mary-Kate Olsen, Amber Heard, Kim Kardashian West and Rihanna, was one of the biggest scandals of 2014. Jen's icould account was hacked and while the star felt completely violated, she is not ashamed. “I started to write an apology, but I don't have anything to say I'm sorry for,” Jennifer Lawrence told Vanity Fair in 2014 about the nude pics of her that were splashed on the Internet during the Fappening. Her relationship was “long distance, and either your boyfriend is going to look at porn or he's going to look at you.”
11. She has won about a million awards.
Lawrence won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook. She has won three Golden Globe Awards: Best Actress – Comedy or Musical for Silver Linings Playbook and Joy, and Best Supporting Actress for American Hustle. She also won a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for American Hustle and won seven MTV Movie Awards (five for The Hunger Games series, two for Silver Linings Playbook), six People's Choice Awards (three for The Hunger Games, three for the X-Men series), a Satellite Award for Silver Linings Playbook, and a Saturn Award for The Hunger Games.
12. She will never get Twitter or Instagram because the internet has "scorned" her.
This probably has a lot to do with her nude photos being leaked but Jen has gone on the record saying, "I will never get Twitter. I'm not very good on the phone or technology. I cannot really keep up with emails so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me ... If you ever see a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that says it's me, it most certainly is not".
