We could never define the success of Jennifer Lawrence, magic Hollywood pixie and patron saint of pizza cravings, in purely numerical terms. But for those who do do that sort of thing, the numbers are in: Forbes estimates the “Hunger Games” star’s earnings over the past year at a whopping $34 million, making her the highest-ranked actress on its yearly Celebrity 100 list.
Lawrence is number twelve overall on the list, which measures financial clout within the entertainment world and includes actors, musicians, television hosts, writers, directors and models in its rankings.
At the age of 23, her showing is impressive; she’s one of the five youngest celebs to make the cut, ranking above Hollywood veterans like Angelina Jolie and Sandra Bullock, as well as her “Silver Linings Playbook” co-star Bradley Cooper.
Also of note: Lawrence even out-earned fellow X-Man Hugh Jackman, just in case you needed another reason to lobby for a Mystique standalone film.
With two major franchises and three Oscar nominations under her belt, it’s no surprise that Lawrence’s wealth is on par with her star power. And with each movie in the “Hunger Games” franchise outperforming the last at the box office, we wouldn’t be surprised to see her creep into the top ten next year.
