Jennifer Lawrence Updates: Jennifer Lawrence who is now a well-established actress with an Oscar under her belt had missed out on a big TV role earlier in her career.

Jennifer Lawrence is an incredibly talented actress who has found success on the big screen. She has been a part of the Hunger Games and X-Men franchise. Her career is not only made up of major franchises but also critically acclaimed performances that have won her several Oscar Nominations and one Oscar win.

Lawrence got her first small-screen break in 2007 as the lead performer on The Bill Engvall Show which was short-lived and lasted for two seasons. After the end of the show, she moved on to chase her big-screen dreams.

After working in some films for several years, she got her big break as Mystique in X-Men: First Class and reprised her role in the franchise for the next eight years. Following her debut in the X-Men franchise, Lawrence got the part of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. Both the franchises went on to become commercially successful.

Apart from working in big franchises that were fuelling her career, Lawrence gave critically acclaimed performances in several movies which won her four Oscar Nominations. She won an Oscar for Best Actress in 2012 for her performance in Silver Linings Playbook.

Lawrence has had a very accomplished career but that does not mean her career lacks missed opportunities. She had lost out on a billion-dollar film like Alice in Wonderland. Lawrence said that most of the time she takes missed opportunities in stride but losing Alice in Wonderland had left her devastated. She lost the part because she couldn’t do a British accent and the part went to Mia Wasikowska.

Lawrence also lost a big opportunity on the small screen. She was a contender for the role of Serena on Gossip Girl. She faced tough competition and lost the role to Blake Lively. The creator of the show Josh Schwartz revealed that they did not realize at the time that Jennifer Lawrence wanted the role of Serena really badly.

Even though Lawrence Lost the part to Lively, the careers of both actors worked out well. Lawrence made it really big on the big screen and is now considered an A-list actress.
