Jennifer Lawrence on Vulture’s 100 Most Valuable Movie Stars
Jennifer Lawrence has been included in Vulture’s 100 Most Valuable Movie Stars list. The actress ranks in at #16 as “The Relatable Bombshell – She can anchor a franchise, elevate a modest indie, and turn every head on the street.”
Jennifer Lawrence introduced herself to critics and indie audiences when she won an Oscar nomination for her role in the acclaimed 2010 drama Winter’s Bone, but it took the rest of America a little longer to learn her name: That red Calvin Klein dress she wore to the Oscars helped a little, and then getting cast as Katniss Everdeen in the massively popular Hunger Games franchise did the rest. The first movie in the series grossed half a billion worldwide and cemented Lawrence’s ability to anchor both popcorn flicks and art house fare (and to imbue each with her strengths in the other), a dual talent that results in a high overall studio value.
Equally at home with the understated drama of Winter’s Bone as she is inhabiting an electric blue, semi-nude mutant Mystique in X-Men: First Class, she’s got significant audience recognition from winning visits to late-night talk shows and frequent appearances in mass-appeal glossy magazines. She’s also got a great likeability score, thanks to both her sex appeal and her chilled-out custodial duties as the head of the Hunger Games franchise. With a slew of high-profile roles, including sequels to both the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises in Lawrence’s near future, the odds will almost certainly be forever in her favor.
Her statistics are as follows:
Domestic Box Office $73,200,000
Overseas Box Office $104,000,000
Studio Value 7
Oscars 1 nom
Critics’ Score 67
Magazine Covers 6
Tabloid Value 7
Congrats Jen, in a few short years you’ve climbed far up that list!
