As we reported previously, this year’s TIME 100 poll had Jennifer Lawrence on the nominees list again. Readers voted for the most influential Top 100 people in various fields, and Jennifer landed on the 14th spot above Beyonce, Michael Phelps, Malala Yousafzai and countless other newsmakers of the year.
Jennifer has also clinched one of the 7 Special Edition covers, along with Jay Z, Rand Paul, Aamir Khan, Malala Yousafzai, Elon Musk and Li Na. Check out the cover and outtake, photographed by Mark Seliger, in the gallery here.
As is tradition, personalities from the winner’s fields talk about them and Academy award winner Jodie Foster talks about Jen:
You’ll remember where you were when you first felt it, how you were stuck to one spot like a small animal considering its end. The Jennifer Lawrence Stare. It cuts a searing swath in your gut. A reckoning. I remember going to the cutting rooms of Winter’s Bone. I thought, Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be. All of those painful secrets in her face, the feeling that there’s some terrible past that’s left impossibly angled bone and weariness in its wake. She’s worn from the pain of living — something none of her characters would ever have the energy to articulate. It’s just part of her, like skin and muscle. The good news is that Jen, her good-humored, ballsy, free-spirited alter ego with the husky voice and a propensity for junk food … Jen, the spritely tomboy from Kentucky — that Jen’s got it together. A hoot. A gem. A gem with a killer stare.
Congratulations from all of us at Hunger Games Network, Jennifer!
