Jennifer is ranked #49 on Forbes’ “World’s Most Powerful Celebrities” List. Ranking was drawn on the grounds of celebritie’s pays and also money, TV/Radio, Press, marketability and social ranks.
Jennifer Lawrence?lands on our list for the first time. The actress who ranks 49th with $26 million. It?s hard to think of an actress who had a better year than Lawrence. She started 2012 with?The Hunger?Games?which grossed $690 million at the global box office making it one of the highest-grossing movies of the year. Lawrence was paid less than $1 million upfront for her work on the film but she made up for that with a much fatter paycheck to revisit the role of Katniss Everdeen for the sequel,?Catching Fire.
Then she won her first Oscar as Best Actress for?Silver Linings Playbook?(it was the 22-year-old?s second nomination). The smaller movie turned a nice profit off its own bringing in $236 million on a $20 million budget. Lawrence has a slew of blockbusters and art films on deck for the next year including?X-Men: Days of Future Past?and?American Hustle?from?Silver Linings?director David O. Russell and costarring?Silver Linings?star Bradley Cooper.
She has also been named as Number One for this year?s After Ellen?s Hot 100 (AfterEllen.com provides a fun, feminist perspective on entertainment).
