Jennifer Lawrence is Forbes' highest-grossing actor of 2014

At just 24, Jennifer's film catalogue of 2014, from The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I to X-Men: Days of Future Past have seen her land the prime spot on Forbes' Top Grossing Actors of 2014 list.

Her movies for the year have grossed $1.4 billion (around £900 million). Not bad, eh?

Snapping at her heels in second place is actor Chris Pratt, whose films have grossed $1.2 billion (£771 million). His Marvel movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, was the surprise hit of the year, while The Lego Movie was one of the top animated films of 2014. He's also set for a big 2015 after landing a lead role in the new Jurassic Park flick, Jurassic World.


And who was in third place? Scarlett Johansson, thanks, mainly, to Captain America: The Winter Soldier, in which the actress reprised her role of The Black Widow.

It was a busy year for Scarlett, who also welcomed her first child, daughter Rose, with her partner Romain Dauriac.
