Jennifer Lawrence is a real character actor in the making. At only 22 years of age, Lawrence has appeared in a spate of feature films, including the critically acclaimed Winter’s Bone (based on the novel by Daniel Woodrell), the popular X-Men: First Class (prequel of the Marvel comic-inspired series), and the highly anticipated Hunger Games (based on the young adult phenomenon by Suzanne Collins.)
What these three films have in common – despite all being adaptations – is that Lawrence’s roles required her to undergo a significant physical change.
When the actress struts the red carpet, she is the embodiment of a Hollywood bombshell. When she steps into the shoes of her on-screen characters, she is almost unrecognizable.
