Jennifer Lawrence was born in Indian Hills, Kentucky, United States, where her family lived. Jennifer comes from a family of five. As a kid, she performed in church plays and school musicals. She was spotted at fourteen by a talent scout while vacationing in New York City with her family. This prompted her to move to Los Angeles, California, to begin her acting career with guest roles in television.

Jennifer Lawrence’s father is Gary Lawrence. He is a construction company owner. Gary coached a boys’ basketball team that Jennifer played with as a teenager.

She began performing for her father whenever he worked from home, either as a clown or a ballerina.


Jennifer’s mom is Karen Lawrence, a Summer Camp manager. She raised her daughter to be tough like her older brothers and did not allow her to play with other girls in preschool because she believed Jennifer was too “rough” for them.

Jennifer has stated that she did not enjoy her childhood due to her hyperactivity and social anxiety. She considered herself a misfit among her peers. However, she never felt anxious when she was on stage.

Karen was not keen on Jennifer pursuing an acting career after she was spotted by a talent scout at age fourteen. However, she briefly moved her family to New York to let her read for talent agents arranged by the scout.

Karen convinced Jennifer that the agents were lying when after her first cold read, they said that hers was the best they had heard from someone so young. When she signed with CESD Talent Agency, her parents were convinced to let her audition for roles in Los Angeles. Her mother encouraged her to go into modeling, but she insisted on pursuing acting, which felt more natural to her. She turned down several modeling offers.


Jennifer Lawrence has two older brothers. Her mother raised her to be just as tough as them.

Jennifer’s brothers are Blaine and Ben Lawrence. Appearing on The Graham Norton Show in 2015, Jennifer said, “It was actually an offence in the house to be considered a female. They were terrible and would say things like, ‘You are such a girl’ or ‘Don’t do that, that’s what a girl would do.’ I’m only now getting used to being called a female.”

Ben is a Managing Partner of Louisville Geek, an IT company. Blaine owns and operates the camp founded by his mother.


Jennifer Lawrence does not have sisters.


Jennifer Lawrence has one child. On February 2022, Jennifer and husband, Cooke Maroney, announced they had welcomed their first child. She said she plans to keep the child’s life private and separate from her career. She told Vanity Fair, “Every instinct in my body wants to protect their privacy for the rest of their lives, as much as I can.”


Jennifer began dating Cooke Maroney, an art gallerist in June of 2018. The couple announced their engagement in February 2019. They married in October 2019 in a Rhode Island ceremony attended by 150 guests.
