JENNIFER LAWRENCE Feature-LAWRENCE OF THE ACADEMY
"Cold hearted bitch". That's how Hugh Jackman describes Jennifer Lawrence ("well don't hold back"). Or, well how his 'X-Men' Wolverine character describes her Mystique one in the forthcoming 'Days Of Future Past' film. 'Avatar' blue seems to be the colour of the year in Marvel's marvellous year from 'The Winter Soldier' Captain America's cold front to Jamie Foxx's epic Electro character in 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' that will join Zoe Saldana's 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' green in taking down the army of 'Transformers' the 'Planet of The Apes' and the movie might of 'Godzilla'. Then of course there's Mystique, in all her blue painted on skin, red hair and Raven to her name eyes. The most alluring character in X-Men and maybe all comic-books, not only for her fan-boy dress up sex appeal but the way she twists and turns through the weaves of the plot like a mutated double agent. Possibly one of the strongest female characters in superhero and even franchise history who better to play this iconic creation than the hottest actor of the moment Jennifer Lawrence? She's about to steal the show and grow into her own characters skin that for most actresses would be their defining role, but up until now for Lawrence has been a side-part to her two-fold yearly domination. A reign that at just 23 and not enough years of work added on to make her 30's has won 'The Hunger Games' and the best blockbuster of the calender rounds each year with the new terrific trilogy that sticks a stake arrow from a bow into the heart of 'Twilight'. One that makes her trip to the Academy Awards for her Oscar nominations or awards as annual as a tradition as her slipping over the red carpet there.
