Jennifer Lawrence: The next big thing

She's only 20 and already has an Oscar nomination to her name. Currently Jennifer Lawrence stars as a blue mutant in X-Men and a teen warrior in Hunger Games. Has success affected her?

At the moment, Jennifer Lawrence — Academy Award nominee, comic-book-movie star and the current illegally anointed It Girl — can barely catch her breath long enough to have a conversation.

During a latest telephone call with Lawrence — who received her first Oscar nomination this year for her portrayal of a steely teen in Winter's Bone and will be seen in her first summer blockbuster, X-Men: First Class — the actress is all over the place.

Movie stardom actually requires multitasking for this 20-year-old. And this is only the beginning. After her turn as young shape-shifter Mystique (non-mutant name: Raven Darkholme) in X-Men: First Class, Lawrence will star in her buzziest role to date: as teen warrior Katniss Everdeen in the adaptation of the popular post-apocalyptic young-adult book series The Hunger Games, a role that has made her the subject of strong internet chatter and landed her on the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

So how has success affected her? Given her often delectably unpretentious answers to a reporter's questions, not a whole lot.
