Thanks to her role in “The Hunger Games,” J-Law’s Katniss Everdeen character helped inspire a massive surge in archery’s popularity. This super-authentic character helps viewers relate to bow-and-arrow sports.

“She has the soul of a comedian,” according to Jonathan van Meter. Famed celeb photographer Mario Testino captures that thought. You can see Lawrence’s humor in Testino’s photos, as if she’s letting us know she’s not fooled by all the fame.
J-Law takes risks
Jennifer Lawrence’s parents gave her six weeks in New York to prove her acting chops, she told Rolling Stone. “I didn’t have any friends. I remember being kind of lonely.”
She’s not afraid to work hard
When training for the Katniss Everdeen role, Lawrence had to learn archery from scratch. She rolled up her sleeves and signed on for 12 lessons with Olympian Khatuna Lorig. “She was lovely,” Lorig told the L.A. Times. “We had a great time coaching and working together.”
And she’s not afraid of mistakes, either
When she accepted the Academy Award for Best Actress in 2013, Lawrence charmed the world by being legitimately humbled and stunned by the win. And when she famously fell on her way to the stage, she picked herself up off the stairs and kept moving.
