The film's director, Matthew Vaughn, tells GQ,
"There are a lot of young American actors right now who haven't got any technique, and to be blunt, a lot of these kids assume that just by having a good set of teeth and t*ts, smiling for the camera's gonna be enough. I needed someone who could act."
Vaughn picked Lawrence based on her audition tape alone and not seeing any of her past work, including last year's Winter's Bone, for which the actress was nominated for an Oscar.
Jennifer also stars with Jodie Foster and Mel Gibson in this summer's "The Beaver" and the post apocalyptic tale "The Hunger Games". Not only that, she is also going to star in "The House at the End of the Street" coming in 2012.
Jen's getting a lot of great roles coming up and not to mention she's a hottie....think she's Hollywood's next big star?
