Jennifer Lawrence's Early Modeling Pictures
Determination Was Key
After much convincing, Lawrence's parents relented and told her she could try acting if she graduated from high school first. She did just that -- and then some. Graduating with a 3.9 average and two years early, Lawrence has said, "I never considered that I wouldn't be successful. I never thought, 'If acting doesn't work out I can be a doctor.' . . . And that dumb determination of being a naive 14-year-old has never left me."
