Celeb Flashback: Jennifer Lawrence’s 4th Grade Yearbook Pic Is Adorable
Take a peek at a pint-sized, 4th grade Jennifer Lawrence in her old yearbook photo!
Ladies and gentlemen, today we bring you Celebrity Flashback: The Hunger Games Edition. I know, I know—aren’t the stars of The Hunger Games young enough not to need a Celebrity Flashback? I mean, there’s really only how far back they can flash, right?
Well, the other thing to remember about young stars is exactly how apparent their growth can be. A couple of years can make a huge difference to, say, a 21-year-old actress like Jennifer Lawrence. Behold! Jennifer’s 4th grade yearbook photo!:
Awwww, look at that grin! Interestingly, as Crushable pointed out, Jennifer is roughly the same age here as Katniss Everdeen’s little sister Primrose when she gets picked from the Reaping at the beginning of The Hunger Games. However, unlike Prim, Jennifer looks rather happier, better fed, and a touch more capable than Prim. What I love most about this pic, though, is that even today, Jennifer still looks like herself—and in an industry like the film industry, that, as they say, is not nothin’.
The photo appears to have been submitted by kid who likely spent his elementary school years standing in line behind Jennifer, alphabetically speaking: Dylan Lyons. It first popped up on a Hunger Games fansite last year, sourced back to the movie’s Facebook page.
Tell us: Do you think 4th grade Jennifer would survive in the Hunger Games arena?
