Next Gen 2010: Hollywood's Young Guns
"I never felt like I completely, 100% understood something so well as acting," says the star of the indie drama Winter's Bone. Growing up in Louisville, Ky., Hollywood seemed beyond Lawrence's reach, but after submitting her picture to agencies and landing an MTV: My Sweet 16 commercial, she moved to L.A. and has been a working actor since. Her performance as Ree Dolly in Bone has cemented her as this year's breakout actress -- and got her a job with her idol, Jodie Foster, for whom she appears in next year's The Beaver. "She is the most brilliant person," Lawrence says of her director. One day she hopes to follow in Foster's directorial footsteps, but first she has to finish filming X-Men: First Class, now shooting in London.
