But Lawrence has been enjoying the spotlight for a few years now. Her performances in such films as "The Poker House" and "Winter's Bone" have garnered critical acclaim (as well as an Oscar nomination for "Winter's Bone"). And over the course of the last year, Lawrence has become more of a household name, thanks mostly to her roles in "X-Men: First Class," "House at the End of the Street" and, of course, "The Hunger Games" and its forthcoming sequels.
