Jennifer Lawrence isn’t just a hilarious woman who knows how to brighten every and any room, she’s also an iconic actress who managed to secure an Academy Award only a couple of years into her successful movie star career.
Widely known for her many projects that often display her talented range as an actress, Lawrence easily became one of the top actresses in the world. Fans and critics alike couldn’t get enough of the way this Kentucky native went from playing the role of an inspiring character whose shooting motivates a dystopian country to revolt against authoritarianism to playing a beloved comic book character who is as mysterious as she is blue.
Seldom do we see actresses with a resume as impressive as Jennifer Lawrence, which is why we want to tell you all about the best movies starring this award-winning actress as well as where you can stream them.
Best Jennifer Lawrence movies
If you want to take it back to the very first movie role Jennifer Lawrence received as a budding actress, then you should definitely tune in to the 2008 film, The Garden Party.
The film (available to purchase as a DVD on Amazon Prime) tells a raunchy story about teens doing whatever they can to make ends meet and see their wildest dreams come true. In the title, Lawrence plays Tiff, a friend who witnesses the scandalous behavior of the lead characters and, sometimes, takes part in it.
Lawrence’s role in The Garden Party may have been minor, but starring in this film is what set her up for a lifetime of amazing roles and successful films.
