While she doesn’t always come across as intelligent, Jennifer Lawrence may be smarter than you think. She dropped out of school at 14 and begged her parents to take her from Kentucky to New York and find her an agent.
Luckily, they complied and she quickly landed the role of Lauren Pearson on The Bill Engvall Show, a sitcom that ran on TBS from July 17, 2007, to September 5, 2009.

“I dropped out of middle school. I don’t technically have a GED or a diploma. I am self-educated,” Jennifer revealed in an interview with 60 Minutes in February 2018, adding, “I wanted to forge my own path.”
“I found what I wanted to do and I didn’t want anything getting in the way of it. Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career.”

While she says she “never felt very smart,” it changed when she started to read scripts.
“I know exactly what it would look like if somebody felt that way. That was a whole part of my brain that I didn’t even know existed,” she said about realizing she could intuit a lot about a character from them. “And I didn’t want to let it go.”
According to an interview with Spencer Pratt in Complex, Jennifer Lawrence is profoundly gifted: “You think we are fame whores? I promise you Jennifer Lawrence, with all due respect, is a bigger fame whore than me. She’s a master. Her IQ is probably 180. She’s Good Will Hunting level of hustle. I don’t fake trip. If you notice, she went from, ‘I’m fat pizza girl’ to like, Chanel cheekbones. Look out for Jennifer Lawrence.”

Jennifer expressed her excitement over being nominated alongside her friend. Amy, on the other hand, was not as thrilled. Schumer was also nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Comedy or Musical for her starring role as Amy Townsend in Trainwreck (2015).
“As soon as I saw that we were both nominated, I took her right out of my phone because our friendship is obviously over,” Amy jokingly told Entertainment Weekly.
