The star of our No 4 film of the year, Silver Linings Playbook, talks exclusively about her stellar year

If Hollywood needed an emblematic heroine for a year of hard times and tough decisions, it came in the form of Jennifer Lawrence: resolute, unyielding and somehow old beyond her age. Lawrence's earlier Oscar-nominated turn in the Ozark-noir Winter's Bone proved the springboard for a brilliant 2012. There she was in the spring, wielding a bow-and-arrow as kill-or-be-killed Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games, the year's best blockbuster. And there she was in the autumn, playing beautiful damaged goods alongside the likes of Bradley Cooper and Robert De Niro in Silver Linings Playbook, the year's best rom-com, and our fourth best film of the year.

We caught up with Lawrence on the set of Catching Fire, the second part of the Hunger Games franchise.

The line's crackling. Where are you?

I'm filming in Hawaii. »
