The Year in Jennifer Lawrence, Because 2014 Brought Her More than a Guinness World Record
As 2014 comes to a close, a look back proves it was a major year for Jennifer Lawrence. From winning a Golden Globe to premiering Mockingjay, she was everywhere this year. That's probably why she won the title of the most Googled person in 2014 — even beating Kim Kardashian for the top spot.
Unfortunately, there were some low points this year too, including that huge leak of celebrities' nude photos. But despite that major invasion of privacy, she still came out on top and stood up for herself. Proving how awesome she is, Lawrence didn't let that get her down and gave a great response. She said, "I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for." Yes! That should go on the ever-growing list of her best quotes.
Let's take a trip down memory lane and recap the year according to J. Law.
Winning a Golden Globe
Unsurprisingly, Jennifer Lawrence won “Best Supporting Actress” at this year’s Golden Globes for her role in American Hustle.
Her Dress Turned Into a Meme
Participating in Ellen's Selfie
Getting a Shoutout From Drake
A lot of actresses receive trophies (J. Law included), but not all of them get the esteemed honor of being referenced in a Drake song. In “Draft Day,” Drake sings: “On some Hunger Games sh*t / I would die for my District/ Jennifer Lawrence, you can really get it / I mean, for real, girl, you know I had to do it for you.”
Renewing Her Contract With Dior
In July, Jennifer Lawrence renewed her Dior contract for more than $15 million. Sounds like a sweet deal! Especially since I’m sure she’ll continue having plenty of award shows to attend.
Breaking Up With Nicholas Hoult
Dating Chris Martin
Setting a Guinness Wold Record
In September, news broke that Jennifer Lawrence set a Guinness Book World Record for becoming the highest grossing movie heroine. We all knew the Hunger Games flicks were popular, but this truly proves the power of girl power!
Speaking Out About Leaked Photos
Without a doubt, the leaked photo scandal ranks as a worst moment in 2014, considering it was a major invasion of privacy.
At the same time, Jennifer Lawrence’s response proves to be a best moment, because it was so perfect and unapologetic. She told Vanity Fair,
“Just because I’m a public figure, just because I’m an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It’s my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can’t believe that we even live in that kind of world. I started to write an apology, but I don’t have anything to say I’m sorry for.”
The third installment of The Hunger Games series premiered in November. Unsurprisingly, Mockingjay — Part 1 was a huge hit! And of course, J. Law deserves credit for her always awesome role as Katniss.
