Jennifer Lawrence Breaks Record For Earnings As Action Star

Christian Dior: Front Row - Paris Fashion Week : Haute-Couture Fall/Winter 2014-2015

Jennifer Lawrence should be happy that a story is coming out about her these days that is not about the leaked nude photos of herself that made the entire Internet go crazy last week.

In more positive news for the actress, she continues to climb the Hollywood ladder and is surely becoming one of the most sought-after actresses in the industry.

This week she actually broke the Guinness World Record for money earned by a female star in an action role with the money she made from the two popular Hunger Games movies.

The Hunger Games franchise is breaking some records itself. The “Catching Fire” installment of the movie franchise has made $911 million dollars worldwide, which makes it the biggest earner of all time when it comes to post-apocalyptic movies.

According to a recent list published by Forbes, Lawrence has earned over $34 million dollars over the last year from her movie deals alone and is the highest ranked female on the list of influential and important Hollywood actors.
