Jennifer Lawrence is currently on tour to promote her new independent movie, Causeway. It's a return to form for an actress who has been at the top of franchises in recent years. Lawrence won an Academy Award for her lead role in the 2012 movie Silver Linings Playbook. Since then, she has continued to play Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movies and has appeared in other X-Men movies.
Her agents kept her from going back to the independent films that made her famous, like Winter's Bone, which made her a star. Lawrence has been refreshingly honest about why many of her recent movies have bombed because of this decision.
Jennifer Lawrence is a huge box office draw, thanks in large part to her work in well-known franchises. However, she realized that talented directors whose work she admired weren't sending her scripts.

Lawrence told the New York Times that at the time, her agents told her that “her audience wouldn't understand” the smaller, independent movies she was interested in and that they would probably rather see her in big-budget movies. After X-Men: Dark Phoenix did so badly at the box office in 2019, Lawrence reportedly fired her CAA agents and did a Matthew McConaughey, and went back to making independent films.
Not that Jennifer Lawrence was ever completely out of the running. Since she broke into the independent movie market, the actor has made a string of successful hit films. She has worked with director David O.
Russell a lot, and Lawrence has been nominated for Oscars in three of his movies alone. But Lawrence seems to be where she is now because of her desire to work with talented directors. She is working hard to define her career on her own terms.
