11 Times You Might’ve Seen Jennifer Lawrence Before The Hunger Games

by: on | in Celebrities | 1 Comment

It’s Jennifer Lawrence‘s 24th birthday! It seems like only yesterday we were introduced to her as teenage Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. Actually… come to think of it… it wasn’t that long ago. The Hunger Games only hit theaters for the first time in early 2012. That means we’ve only known J.Law, one of the most high-profile celebrities today, for two years. WHA-?!

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:

Abercrombie & Fitch Ads

Yes, that beautiful face (and bod) used to model. Figures. The photographer who snapped her even said she "moved like Gisele."
