Jennifer Lawrence Named Most Bankable Star of 2013

Surprising no one who has been on the Internet recently, the star most credited for the industry’s record year of domestic box office sales is Jennifer Lawrence.

The “Hunger Games: Catching Fire” and “American Hustle” actress was voted the top money-making star of 2013 in Quigley Publishing Company’s annual poll of motion picture theater owners and film buyers. Sandra Bullock, who costarred in “The Heat” and “Gravity” this year, was second and Lawrence’s “Hustle” costar, Bradley Cooper (who also appeared in “The Hangover III” this year) came in third.

Lawrence and Joseph Gordon Levitt were Quigley’s Stars of Tomorrow in 2012. This is the first time an actor has gone from the top of that poll to top money maker in a year. This year’s Stars of Tomorrow are Amy Adams, another “Hustle” costar, and James Franco.

Because of her ability to transition between blockbusters and adult dramas, Variety also named Lawrence one of the most influential people of 2013.
