The ‘Hunger Games’ star knocks Angelina Jolie off the top spot.

Jennifer Lawrence Named Most Powerful Actress in 2014 by Forbes

In this article…

The Forbes Most Powerful Celebrities of 2014 list is out, and while the ultimate winner is, of course, Beyonce, there are some surprising results in the celebrity subcategories. This is true nowhere more than in the Most Powerful Actresses category, where Hollywood ingenue Jennifer Lawrence has beat out 2013 winner Angelina Jolie for the top slot, while Jolie has dropped to #3.

From the box-office takes of the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises to her three Academy Award nominations, JLaw (as some are trying to call her) cannot be beat. Sandra Bullock is sitting in the #2 slot, with box office successes Gravity and The Heat bringing her almost into Lawrence's range.

Jennifer Lawrence vs. Angelina Jolie

But the big news is still Angelina Jolie, who won last year without having been in a movie for three years. Yet in 2014, despite her extraordinarily powerful performance in Malificent, Jolie is proving to be, if not old news, at least not the first actress to come to mind anymore. Hollywood loves its young powerhouses, and at 39 years old, the former Tomb Raider star is practically ancient. 

Not that being #3 is terrible, by any means. But we are entering an age of young adult novel adaptations and superhero remakes. Lawrence has found her way from Silver Linings Playbook into that scene perfectly. How will Jolie adapt?

Rounding out the top five are Scarlett Johansson for Black Widow in the Avengers franchise and Jennifer Anniston for We're the Millers.
