Jennifer Lawrence, the 22-year old Academy Award nominated actress forWinter’s Bone was catapulted to the A-list after landing the supporting role of Mystique/Raven in X-Men: First Class and the lead part of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. Lawrence was interviewed by Lynn Hirschberg for the October issue of W Magazine where she revealed the hazards of the blue make-up she wore for Mystique and if she hated the color now.
“Not really, but I did leave the color everywhere. The hotel in London wouldn’t give me my security deposit back because I turned their tub blue. I also did that to a lot of toilet seats on set. We called it ‘getting Mystiqued.’”
Lawrence started out on TV playing Bill Engvall’s daughter in the TBS comedy, The Bill Engvall Show.
In the 2008 indie-drama,The Burning Plain, she plays the younger version of Charlize Theron’s character, Mariana/Sylvia who is responsible for the death of her mother and her mother’s lover.

The two bond over their mutual pain – Norah is trying to come to terms with her brother’s death and Porter is dealing with his troubled relationship with his father.
Lawrence reunites with Anton Yelchin in Like Crazy playing Sam, the rebound relationship Jacob (Yelchin) embarks on during his long distant separation from true love, Anna (Felcity Jones).
