Friday Faces: Jennifer Lawrence
clicked any news or social media site this week, chances are you've seen a post
or two--or fifty--about The Hunger Games. The film's buzz is unavoidable given its Twilight-esque inducing hysteria (ask any 12
year old). That's why our Friday Faces this week is its mega-star, Jennifer
Lawrence, who plays Katniss Everdeen.
21-year old actress isn't a one-hit-wonder; she's already been nominated for
an Academy Award for Best Actress in Winter's Bone and for a smorgasbord of others.
She’s also one to watch on the red carpet, having traded her youthful
bohemian frocks for high-charged glamour. We're especially fond of her natural looking highlight-lowlight combo, tousled waves, and wispy bangs.
Hunger Games, her
character and other teens are forced to battle each other in televised
competitions—to the death. Sound disturbing? It is. But the story draws
attention to themes like oppression, war, and severe poverty.
Lawrence and the cast are going a step further, redirecting the spotlight to
help end world hunger. They've teamed up with the World Food Programme and
Feeding America to educate about hunger as the world's "most solvable
problem.” Visit the official site to donate a mere $5, which can feed an
astounding 20 people. With The Hunger Games pegged as a franchise, we’ll be keeping
up with this cause and Lawrence for a while.
