Pictures of the beautiful young Jennifer Lawrence show the American actress who is best known for her outstanding performances in The Hunger Games series in her younger days as a model and regular teenager growing up in Kentucky. While we've likely all seen gifs of Jennifer Lawrence falling down, if you're wondering what did Jennifer Lawrence look like when she was young? Wonder no more with this slideshow of photos of a young Jennifer Lawrence.

Lawrence landed her first role on the television show The Bill Engvall Show. She has also starred in other popular movies such as The Burning Plain, Winter’s Bone, Silver Linings Playbook, American Hustle and X-Men: First Class. Her role as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games film series established her as the highest-grossing action heroine as of 2015. That honor is nothing in comparison to her wins of a Golden Globe Award and Academy Award as the second-youngest Best Actress Oscar winner.

JLaw, as she is casually known, made the decision to become an actress at only 14 years old and persuaded her parents to take her to New York City in order to find a talent agency. Rolling Stone Magazine described her as "the most talented young actress in America" in 2012. Perhaps the most impressive thing about her is that she never had any official acting training and has never starred in a theater production.

But like anyone in Hollywood, including others on the list of the best actresses working today, everyone started somewhere. So check out what Jennifer Lawrence looked like when she was young in these photos!
