While it’s crazy to think that it’s been such a short time since she hit superstardom what with her portrayal as the young heroine, as well as Mystique in X-Men: First Class not too long before, it’s even crazier to know that she was in over ~*two handfuls*~ of projects before we all even knew her name. Here are 11 times you might’ve seen Jennifer Lawrence before The Hunger Games:

The Bill Engvall Show
Bet TBS would literally kill to get J.Law on the network now.
Her role nabbed her her FIRST Academy Award nomination!
Only months before The Hunger Games hit theaters, this film debuted. And she wasn't even the star.
