Acting and Jennifer Lawrence Net Worth

Acting and Jennifer Lawrence Net WorthThe bulk of the Jennifer Lawrence net worth total comes from her acting work. Lawrence has earned $89 million from acting since 2006. For the first five years of her career, Lawrence barely made enough to cover her expenses. Even the 2010 hit Winter’s Bone only paid the star an estimated $43,250.

It wasn’t until the 2011 blockbuster X-Men, First Class that Lawrence really started to build her wealth. That movie paid the actress about $1 million up front and a probable 1/4% of box office earnings. That gave Lawrence her first payout in the millions or $1.9 million to be specific.

The Hunger Games and Silver Linings Playbook gave Lawrence her first paydays over $5 million. They also set her up as American’s new sweetheart action star. By the time she appeared in 2013’s The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, film roles were adding $10 million or more each to the Jennifer Lawrence net worth figure.

Though Lawrence can now command $12 million per role, she frequently accepts far less than that for labors of love. Since 2012, Lawrence has taken on several indie roles for much lower pay. These include House at the End of the Street, The Devil You know, and Serena. Notably, many of these smaller roles put her opposite Bradley Cooper, fueling speculation of an off screen romance. It’s just speculation though, as Cooper vowed in 2015 that he would never sleep with his regular co-star.
