Let's face it: As far as awesome celebrities go, Jennifer Lawrence is always one to top the list. Since first making waves on the big screen, Lawrence has proven herself to be a formidable force when it comes to slaying roles. Before making it to the age of 25, Lawrence garnered two Golden Globe Awards and an Oscar, helmed The Hunger Games franchise as badass heroine, Katniss Everdeen, and continually receives lauds from critics for her inimitable acting chops. As if her screen time wasn't enough to make you a fan, Lawrence's wit and down-to-earth demeanor off-camera has made us all ache to have her as a BFF. Taylor Swift was quick to nab the actress as a member of her ever-growing squad, and Amy Schumer's recent jet skiing trip with the star was one to place at the top of all our respective lists of #FriendshipGoals.
Lawrence's acting repertoire showcases her versatility, with the actress playing mutants, romantic leads, and everything in between. Despite the differentiations between her characters, one thing that permeates into each role is Lawrence's one-of-a-kind sass. In celebration of the A-lister's birthday, let's take a look at our favorite Lawrence movies, ranked by sassy one-liners — from cheeky to "OH SNAP!"
1. Winter's Bone
When you're in a highly volatile situation that involves tracking down your drug-dealing father — and weathering the occasional beatdown — it's hard to deliver the sass. Lawrence still managed to deliver several sharp rejoinders, but the movie's fabric wasn't exactly appropriate for cheek.
2. The Hunger Games
When you're forced into a playing field that involves starvation and fighting to the death, being sassy is no easy task. Lawrence shone bright as heroine, Katniss Everdeen, and squeezed in some bold comebacks while garnering the spot of star tribute.
3. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
With vengeance against the nefarious President Snow on her mind, Katniss became decidedly more — ahem — fiery (get it?) in this sequel. Lines like, "I'm going to stay here and cause all kinds of trouble," really upped the sass factor.
4. X-Men: First Class
Vintage Lawrence FTW — amiright?? The star's first turn as Raven/Mystique oozed sass, especially when conversing with Professor Charles Xavier.
5. X-Men: Days Of Future Past
When being a mutant is taken to a villainous level, sass is bound to ensue.
6. American Hustle
How is it that Lawrence was, like, barely in this movie — at least compared to the rest of the stars — and her cheeky wit and potty mouth basically stole the entire thing? That's some killer sass, right there.
7. Silver Linings Playbook
Let's face it: No amount of sass can parallel that of Tiffany Maxwell from Silver Linings Playbook. Lawrence's take on the sharp-tongued widow brilliantly upended the tropes that often come with rom-com leading ladies.
Excuse me while I peruse Netflix and binge-watch every Lawrence movie at my disposal.
