The Winner/ Jennifer Lawrence is the highest grossing actor du jour

There is something about her cute sexiness and her ability to be funny and to the point -if she doesn’t tumble that is. Just when you thought Jennifer Lawrence can’t get any bigger, this 24yo Oscar awarded girl will defy expectations any way possible. She recently scored her first Billboard chart hit with “Hanging Tree,” and now she closes out 2014 as the highest-grossing actor in Hollywood, according to Forbes.

Between Mockingjay and X-Men: Days of Future Past, Lawrence’s movies have grossed $1.4 billion at the box office worldwide this year –a number that will climb even higher since Mockingjay is still in theaters wilst the last installment of The Hunger Games is yet to explode in a theater near you this brand new year.

When actors like Daniel Radcliffe and the Twilight duet reached the end of the franchises that made them stars, they had to prove that they were more than just lucky beneficiaries of a blockbuster brand. Jlaw on the other hand won’t have that problem thanks to her strong performances in movies like American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook to name a few.

Although she might have been paid less than her male costars in American Hustle, Lawrence is a blue chip in Hollywood’s massive money machine. A fighter and a winner, Jlaw is an on-going hit.
