“Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence is globetrotting to promote the blockbuster movie. The 21-year-old actress popped up in Madrid, Spain to promote the movie on TV show “El Hormiguero.”
She was stunning in a black and cream Victoria Beckham dress that accentuated her curves.
Lawrence plays Katniss Everdeen, who volunteers to fight on TV in the violent and bloody hunger games to prevent her 12-year-old sister from getting drafted. The brutal government where she lives drafts two young teens from each of 12 districts to fight to the death in the games.
Before the blockbuster, however, Lawrence was already establishing her credibility as an actress. Her breakthrough role came in “Winter’s Bone,” a small indie film released earlier this year. She plays a Ozarks teen who searches for her meth-cooking father.
Before that, Lawrence spent three seasons playing a sitcom daughter on “The Bill Engvall Show,” and starred as a 14-year-old overachiever with a strung-out prostitute mother in Lori Petty’s semi-autobiographical film “The Poker House.”
“The Hunger Games” has grossed $155 million in North America and $214.3 million worldwide in its opening weekend. Lawrence has become known as the thinking man’s sex siren.
