Jennifer Lawrence Enters Guinness As Most Successful Heroine


Actress Jennifer Lawrence has entered the Guinness Book of World Records after becoming cinema's most successful heroine following her role as Katniss Everdeen in the hugely popular 'Hunger Games' franchise.

Hunger Games and its sequel Catching Fire grossed over 900 million pounds worldwide to earn the record.

Lawrence can only extend this feat with two more of the franchise's films yet to be released. Mockingjay – Part 1 is set to be unveiled this coming November, with Mockingjay – Part 2 slated for a November 2015 release, reported BBC online.

The 24-year-old actress's lead film debut came in the 2010 drama Winter's Bone. She has since starred in many successful films including X-Men: First Class, its sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and American Hustle. She won Best Actress at the 2013 Academy Awards for her performance in David O Russell's Silver Linings Playbook.

Lawrence isn't the only one being inducted into the Guinness World Records. 'X Factor' alumni One Direction have also found a place after becoming the first British boyband to reach the top of the US charts with three consecutive albums, while singer Miley Cyrus holds the record for most searched-for popstar on the internet.
