Today AnOther presents the first of our four cover stars for spring/summer 2011, Jennifer Lawrence. In our celebratory 10th anniversary issue, AnOther Magazine looks towards the future of cinema, celebrating an international A-list of rising young actresses. Gifted and passionate about their craft, with strong individual voices, the four stars from four different countries constitute a bright new generation of acting talent.
Louisville-raised Jennifer Lawrence, indie darling of the Sundance-approved Winter’s Bone, has been nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award and was recently directed by Jodie Foster. Photographed by David Sims and Olivier Rizzo for the cover story, Jennifer has also been captured in an intimate video portrait by Mike Cunliffe. Jennifer talks candidly about starting out, her role in Winter’s Bone, her admiration of Road to Perdition, relaxing and her hopes for the future.
I added captures of her video interview and previews of the cover. Also added outtakes of Jennifer’s feature at previous issue of AnOther Magazine. Thanks to Connie, we have some great quality scan of Jennifer at Vanity Fair Hollywood issue:
I added some new outtakes of InStyle Magazine photoshoot and lots of HQs of Jennifer at BAFTAs:

One of the year’s biggest breakout stars on enduring the cold and having Steven Spielberg see your movie.
As a way of celebrating this year’s nominees for the Spirit Awards in the weeks leading up to the ceremony, we reached out to as many as we could in an effort to better understand what went into their films, what they’ve gotten out of the experience, and where they’ve found their inspiration, both in regards to their work and other works of art that might’ve inspired them from the past year. Their answers will be published on a daily basis throughout February.
One of the recurring oddities of awards season is reconciling the actors and actresses who walk the red carpet with the roles they so thoroughly inhabited that got them honored in the first place. For Jennifer Lawrence, the difference has been particularly stark, radiating old school Hollywood glamour as she’s strolled through one ceremony after another in recent months for her performance in “Winter’s Bone” where as the steely Ree Dolly, she couldn’t be further away in the Ozarks. However, what makes it easier to reconcile the two is knowing the other things Lawrence radiates – an intelligence and inner strength – that makes Ree no victim and the actress no ordinary thespian.
Oliver Stone Has Met With Leonardo DiCaprio, Aaron Johnson, Tom Hardy, James Franco & Garrett Hedlund For Two Male Lead Roles; Benicio Del Toro Courted For Role Of Cartel Enforcer
There is nothing we like better than young actresses making smart, interesting choices and “Winter’s Bone” breakout star and Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence continues to diversify her resumé. She’s got a starring role in the upcoming “X-Men: First Class” (whose solid trailer just dropped) and now she’s made a nice little gear change into a project with great potential.
Deadline reports that Lawrence is in talks to star in “Savages,” a drug cartel thriller to be directed by Oliver Stone. First revealed the last summer, the project is based on Don Winslow‘s book about “two pals from Laguna Beach who share the same girlfriend and a thriving business growing and distributing the best-quality pot on the planet. When they resist being muscled by a Mexican drug cartel, the girl is kidnapped and the ransom is every cent they’ve made for the last five years. They agree to pay but hatch an alternate plan to get her back, get revenge, and then get lost.” Lawrence, will play the girl in the middle O, while the two pals—Ben and Chon—have seen some big names in the mix. Oliver Stone has apparently met with Leonardo DiCaprio, Aaron Johnson, Tom Hardy, James Franco and Garrett Hedlund about the roles and Benicio Del Toro is being sought to play an enforcer for the Mexican drug cartel.
This sounds like something much more lean and mean from Stone than we’re used to, and the source material is from a writer who has gained attention of prominent helmer’s in the past. Winslow wrote “The Winter of Frankie Machine,” a book that once had Martin Scorsese and Michael Mann interested in directing at various points. Definitely seems like some wickedly fun stuff and if Stone can attract some of those top tier names, we reckon it’s his most interesting project in years.
Jennifer Lawrence, the 20-year-old Oscar nominee for Best Actress, is sitting in a fancy Manhattan hotel sipping tea and feeling a little out of place. See, she grew up in Louisville, Kentucky, where her dad owned a construction company and her mom ran a summer camp. They had land and horses. She loved to fish. She was a total tomboy: field hockey, softball, basketball on an all-boys team. (“I was so dykey.”) One of her nicknames was Nitro. She lives in Los Angeles now, but “little redneck things still come out.” Like what? “I’m attracted to my brother. Stuff like that.”
At 14, she decided she wanted to be an actress and dragged her mom to New York for auditions. The people at Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups told her she was the best they’d ever seen. Her mom told her they were lying. (Her mom didn’t like showbiz much.) She auditioned for the role of Bella in Twilight, which would have been perfect if Bella were a badass, but since she’s a frightened waif, Lawrence ended up not getting the part. Which was for the best because the role she did get was for Winter’s Bone, in which she’s fantastic: harrowing and tender as the 17-year-old daughter of an Ozarks meth-cooker who’s fighting to take care of her little brother and sister.
To prep for the part, Lawrence learned how to shoot a gun and field-dress squirrels. She already knew how to chop wood: “I went through a wood-chopping phase when I was nine or 10.” She says she hasn’t even bothered preparing an Oscar speech: “I have been practicing my losing face, though. Do you want to see it?” (For the record, it’s a very good losing face.)
Later this year comes X-Men: First Class, where she’ll play the mutant Mystique, blue-skinned and topless. (“Did I feel naked being naked?” she asks, so you don’t have to. “Yeah. Totally.”) But before that there’s Jodie Foster’s The Beaver, premiering next month, in which she appears alongside a certifiable Mel Gibson. Which means she has some crazy Mel Gibson stories, right?
She leans in close. “If I say, ‘Off the record’ — that means you can’t print it, right?” Right. “OK. So, off the record …” She’s learning.

Keep filling the gallery, this time with Jennifer’s film “The Poker House”:
Lori Petty tells her life through her character Agnes. Agnes is a 14 year old girl, an aspiring basketball player with straight As. She has 2 younger sisters which she tries to protect from the life her mother leads. Her mom is a prostitute who brings home different men every night. Her pimp comes in and smacks her around to get the money out of her and she takes it because she is in love with her. To earn extra money the two older girls have jobs. Agnes works at a pizza place as well as a newspaper as she is an aspiring writer. Bee, the middle sister delivers papers in the morning. The baby tries to sleep over at her friends house because her friend has food. The three struggling children try and make ends meet with the only father type figure being their mother’s pimp. The pimp ultimately rapes Agnes on her living room floor.

For our 17th annual Hollywood Issue cover, Vanity Fair went back to the basics—no teenagers, no penguins, no (full-on) nudity, just the most exciting actors and actresses of the moment. Anchoring the front panel are Oscar co-hosts Anne Hathaway and James Franco (himself a best-actor nominee), along with Ryan Reynolds and Jake Gyllenhaal, two of the most versatile, likable (and, yes, good-looking) leading men in Hollywood.

There are some rumors that Jennifer will be in The Last Apprentice. Check the article bellow:
According to inside source at Vulture, I Am Number Four actor Alex Pettyfer, may be ditching one young-adult franchise for another.
It seems talks between Screen Gems and reps for Alex Pettyfer have reached an impasse, and the young Brit won’t be starring in the studio’s adaptation of Cassandra Clare’s best-selling young-adult books, The Mortal Instruments. Instead, the young seems to have opted to the lead role in Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ adaptation of Joseph Delaney’s best-selling YA series The Last Apprentice (known to U.K. readers as The Wardstone Chronicles), about a teenage boy training to be an exorcist in the 1700s.“The project is heating up fast, our spies say, with Oscar nominees Jeff Bridges and Jennifer Lawrence possibly playing roles as well; Bridges is being offered the part of the exorcist to whom Pettyfer would be apprenticed, and Lawrence that of a suspected witch.”
The Mortal Instruments comes to theaters in 2012 and stars Lily Collins. The film is directed by Scott Stewart.
The Last Apprentice comes to theaters in 2012 and stars Jeff Bridges, Alex Pettyfer, Jennifer Lawrence. The film is directed by Sergey Bodrov.
