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.

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.
