Before she starred in mega-hits like The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence got her start on the small screen – doing a series of commercials for MTV’s series My Super Sweet 16. In the commercials, she played a bratty teen named “Lisa” who has a big, over-the-top birthday bash that goes all wrong. Last night, at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards, Jen thanked MTV for giving her her first real acting job.
â€œI want to thank MTV. Iâ€™ll explain that. I earned my SAG card when I was 14, I did an MTV promo for My Super Sweet 16. And I remember getting it in the mail and it being the best day in my entire life, because it officially made me a professional actor,â€ she said in her acceptance speech. We love that Jen isn’t embarrassed of her first job – even if it did involve being splattered with cake.
