Jennifer Lawrence: On Authenticity, Dealing with Criticism, Hustling, Failure, Intuition, Hard Work, and More

The person in question today is the brilliant and vivacious Jennifer Lawrence. You’ll know her for films like Passengers, Mother!, American Hustle and of course, The Hunger Games series. It is the latter, of course, that made her arguably the most recognised women on the screen; she’s often cited as the most successful actress of her generation, and is thus far the only person in acting born in the 90’s to have won an Oscar.

Her films have grossed over 5.5 billion dollars worldwide, and she has an estimated net worth of 110 million dollars (though it’s important to remember we know very little about how accurate these ‘estimates’ are, of course).

She’s also known for her witty sense of humour, straight-to-the-point manner of speech, and distinctive husky voice. Here she is talking about authenticity, intuition, dealing with criticism, learning on the fly, hard work, and much much more.


What is the Success Series Podcast?

The success series podcast is all about the secrets, recipes and philosophies of some of the world’s most famous and successful people—be them composers, actors, actresses, entrepreneurs, authors, painters, investors, philosophers, journalists, scientists—you name it. Each episode features one person, and typically, 7-10 separate pieces of advice.
However, these podcasts are not interviews done by us; what we do instead is comb the internet platforms for any recordings and audio clips that already exist, study them, and then separate the wheat from the chaff. These podcasts, are the wheat—or better put, the audio equivalent of your favourite superfood. Not a fan of superfoods? Then consider them audio equivalent of the food item you can’t live without.
