Jennifer Lawrence Moment Embarrassing Moments At a very young age, Jennifer Lawrence decided she was going to be an actress. She went all-in on the decision as a teen, skipping out on school and not receiving a GED or any type of diploma. Success was never a guarantee, just like so many other actors trying to make it, Jen started off with smaller roles. Her first pilot was on a show that never aired, ‘Company Town.’ Slowly but surely, she gained more traction and in the 2010s, she became among the elite in Hollywood.
