Jennifer Lawrence Called 16th Most Valuable Star
New York Magazine‘s blog Vulture wrote a list called the 100 Most Valuable Stars, which they included Hunger Games‘ Jennifer Lawrence in. The list is based on a new algorithm that focuses on 8 points, including likability and star power. The list is to tell which stars help movies to become more successful. She was also included on Most Valuable Actor List (#9) and Most Valuable Drama Stars (#10). For the 100 Most Valuable Stars list, she sits at #16. Here is their official reason for giving placing her at the #16 spot.
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….he’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.
It is nice to see that she has been receiving so much love. I think her last few roles have really helped to make her a household name and for a wide range of age groups as well. Jennifer has proven with her track record in a wide array of roles and I am sure she will keep that up. With two big movie franchises tied to her name, I can only see her fame growing that much more. I wonder how she must feel about all of the critical acclaim at this point? I would think that she would feel like a million bucks for it, but at the same time she hopefully still sees herself as herself and no one special, even if rest of us do think she is.
How do you like her placement on the list? I think it is a nice honor for her and her fans. Jennifer has made a name for herself and she should feel proud for all of her hard work, even if she wasn’t big in the idea of going mainstream so to speak. I think she must have come around, cause she has certainly been shining her star bright. I am glad that she seems to be dealing with fame okay and even excepting the price that comes with it-ie. being followed by cameras all the time.
