Jennifer Lawrence has come a long way since 2010's "Winter's Bone." She landed a Best Actress nomination for that hardscrabble drama, won the Oscar for "Silver Linings Playbook" and a supporting actress nomination for "American Hustle." But it's her franchise roles as Katniss Everdeen in the "Hunger Games" franchise and Mystique in the "X-Men" series that earned her a place at the top of Forbes' most powerful actresses list--and 12th overall. Forbes estimates that she earned $34 million last year. Bravo.  For those of you on Epix, the site will stream back-to-back viewings of "The Hunger Games" and the world television premiere of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,"  as well as Epix's exclusive look at the making of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" with never before seen footage on Saturday, July 26 (on Epix, Epix-On-Demand, Epix.com and all Epix apps).  »
