Years before she won an Oscar or played Katniss Everdeen in the blockbuster Hunger Games movie franchise, Jennifer Lawrence was just a small-town girl acting in high school plays!
In a recently released throwback clip from years ago, a teenage J.Law performs the part of Desdemona in a local Louisville production of William Shakespeare's Othello. The flashback video proves that Lawrence had serious acting chops even as a young girl. She also showcases her vocal talents with some on-stage singing in the vintage video.
"She was precocious and energetic," Charlie Sexton, director of the Walden Theater in Louisville and a former mentor of Lawrence, recently told CNN.
