Jennifer Lawrence is The World’s Highest-Paid Actress of 2015 according to Forbes. Their international list measures money earned from June 1, 2014 to June 1, 2015 before subtracting management fees and taxes; figures are based on data from Nielsen, Box Office Mojo and IMDB, as well as interviews with agents, managers and lawyers.
Jennifer Lawrence earns more than any other actress thanks to her signature role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games trilogy. Those films proved Lawrence’s box office brawn as a female action hero and helped her negotiate a very favorable share of the more recent films’ profits. Outside Panem, Lawrence is reuniting with her Silver Linings Playbook costar, Bradley Cooper, for the comedic drama Joy. Lawrence supplements her silver screen income with a lucrative Dior contract.
Jennifer is the second highest paid actress in Hollywood, followed by Kristen Stewart ($22 million), Jennifer Aniston ($20 million), Emma Stone ($16 million) and others. Angelina Jolie topped the list ($33 million).

Jennifer Lawrence as Katnis Everdeen was rated as?one of the top Teen Movie Heroines according to TIME. You can read below, what they said about her:
The Hunger Games
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence)
You?d think the Team Edward vs. Team Jacob debate would have given way to Team Bella vs. Team Katniss. After all, the?Twilight?heroine has now been supplanted in the popular imagination of young readers and moviegoers by the forest gladiator of Suzanne Collins? trilogy. It?s probably not a fair comparison. Still, Lawrence?s dynamic warrior seems to have a built-in edge over Kristen Stewart?s passive, curiously blank vampire bride.
Katniss is not only a skilled fighter, but she?s also a canny manipulator ? of potential beau Peeta, of the bread-and-circuses media, and even of the politicians of Panem. She?s selfless and compassionate, whether she?s taking her kid sister?s place as a draftee or mercy-killing a wounded opponent. Still, she?s only 16 and doesn?t yet know her own heart, which makes her flawed enough to be relatable.
Where did Lawrence get the steely resolve needed to play her? (Her Oscar-nominated performance as a teen protecting her rural family from scary meth dealers in?Winter?s Bone?offers a clue.) Her Katniss may display a hint of liquid-eyed guilt or remorse at having to take an enemy down, but she?ll still do it, quick as an arrow.
