Why She’s Cool: Jennifer Lawrence

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know who Jennifer Lawrence is. But at just 25 years old, she’s an Oscar winner and one of Hollywood’s most bankable actresses (you know, with a humble net worth of 60 million). She’s carried the box-office-busting franchise The Hunger Games and gone completely blue for her role as Mystique in the X-Men series, but manages to stay the whiskey-loving, reality tv-watching, hilarious girl next door we fell in love with. Despite her A-list name, she always seems real. Now THAT is cool.
