|5 lessons from 'The Hunger Games' star's career|
|Jennifer Lawrence follows a simple game plan for her
By Brent Lang and Jeff Sneider
Jennifer Lawrence has done the impossible: An Oscar-winner at 23 with one of the most successful film franchises in her quiver, Lawrence is perhaps the first bona fide movie star to emerge since Robert Downey Jr. blasted off as "Iron Man" in 2008.
Moreover, Lawrence has done it on her own terms, wisely mixing in big budget crowd-pleasers like "The Hunger Games" with eclectic films such as David O. Russell's "American Hustle." And unlike so many young stars, she's let her work, not her social habits, dominate coverage of her meteoric rise.
