Lawrence took on the role of Mystique/Raven Darkholme in 2011 for the film X-Men: First Class. In an interview with IGN, the actress talked about why she took on the character.
"It's a fun character to play, in a fun movie," she said. "We've got cool sets and I'm really loving all the special effects, because it's so different to Winter's Bone - I'm like a kid in a candy store."
Lawrence was nominated for an Academy Award in 2010 for her dramatic role in indie drama Winter's Bone. After starring in X-Men: First Class, she shot to worldwide fame in 2012 as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. The role garnered wins at the People's Choice Awards, the MTV Movie Awards and the Teen Choice Awards.
In 2013, the actress won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. She also won a Golden Globe and a SAG Award.
At the age of 22, Lawrence has already accomplished a lot in her short time as an actress. She will be reprising her role as Everdeen in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is set to come out in November of 2013. She will also be reteaming with director David O'Russell and Bradley Cooper (Silver Linings Playbook) for the film American Hustle, which has a Christmas premiere date.
X-Men: Days of Future Past is set to premiere on July 18, 2014.
