Jennifer Lawrence Dropped Out of Middle School at 14 to Pursue Acting

In an upcoming interview with "60 Minutes", the Oscar-winning actress reveals that she dropped out of school at the age of 14 to concentrate on her acting career, according to People. Late a year ago, she said it was something that she was still processing, however, she told "60 Minutes" correspondent Bill Whitaker that she ended up feeling "empowered" doing the nude scene in the movie. "I don't technically have a GED (General Educational Development) or a diploma". Lawrence told interviewer Bill Whitaker that she knew she wanted to pursue acting after struggling in school. That was a whole part of my brain that I didn't even know existed.

"Get a grip people" wrote the American actress Jennifer Lawrence shutting up all that "sexist" critics who raised brows on her winter dressing freezing sense in the vast cold of London. And if I want to be cold THATS MY CHOICE TOO!'

She says she has no regrets over leaving school early at such an early age.

The plot of Red Sparrow follows Dominika Egorova (Lawrence) an exceptional ballerina who during one night loses everything in a freak accident that ruins her career forever.

Between being a bridesmaid in her best friend Amy Schumer's surprise wedding on February 13, to hitting back at critics on social media, the star has been busy.
