LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has been on WAVE 3's radar since 2005, long before she was a star.

We first talked with Jennifer when she was 14, around the time she was featured in some promos for MTV's My Super Sweet 16.

A couple of years later, we checked back in with her, her parents, her brothers and her extended family. All of them were thrilled when Jennifer landed a part on the TBS comedy The Bill Engvall Show.

From there came a 2010 Academy Award nomination as Best Actress in the film Winter's Bone, and now a huge amount of fame with The Hunger Games.
