If we had to choose one actress who currently takes the reign of Hollywood's resident "America's Sweetheart" label that everyone's favorite "IT girl" gets billed, it would have to be Jennifer Lawrence. After kickstarting her acting career in the year 2006, she would have her first breakout performance and Oscar nomination for her lead role in the 2010 independent drama Winter's Bone. The critical acclaim and attention from the role eventually led to Lawrence bursting onto the Hollywood scene by joining The Hunger Games and X-Men film franchises.
The Kentucky native would solidify her top spot in Hollywood by winning her first Oscar for her 2012 performance in Silver Linings Playbook at age 22. She's been one of the world's most successful and highest paid actresses ever since.
She's also become one of the world's most instantly recognizable actresses, which is a problem for Lawrence on days where she does not want to be snapped by the paparazzi. Luckily, with all of the money she has accumulated over the years, she can escape to any place in the world to avoid them. Unfortunately, thanks to being so recognizable as a celebrity, she is often easily spotted by the paps and fans.

23 SPOTTED: GOOFING AROUND AT NOBU
One of the reasons why Jennifer Lawrence attained the status of "America's Sweetheart" for so long is because she has such a lovable, relatable, infectious personality that bleeds through the screen. She looks like she's fun to be around, so therefore, she's fun to watch.
From the looks of it, she is just as goofy in the company of her friends as she is on camera. She was once seen being goofy coming out of the Nobu restaurant with friends and a bodyguard in tow, all while walking out with chopsticks in her mouth.
22 SPOTTED: AT A WHOLE FOODS IN LOS ANGELES
Even the ever so illustrious average rich and powerful celebrity figure must still go out and shop for groceries on their days off. Well, some celebrities do.

What, like it's hard?
16 SPOTTED: AT ANY NUMBER OF COMIC-CON EVENTS
More than just the paradigm of comic book culture as it once was in a time of yesteryear, Comic-Con has become a tentpole for pop culture where even movies that have nothing to do with comics can come to be promoted.
