Pic: Jennifer Lawrence Voted ‘Most Talkative’ in 7th Grade

If Jennifer Lawrence had been chosen as tribute when she was in middle school, she had a skill she would’ve brought to the Hunger Games — though, it doesn’t seem all that useful. In 2004 the 7th grade class at Kammerer Middle School in Louisville, KY voted Lawrence “Most Talkative.” Here’s the shot to prove it.

Though Lawrence looks happy enough in her yearbook photo, she says she was actually miserable in school. “I always felt dumber than everybody else,” she told the L.A. Times, sharing that a math teacher once embarrassed her when she kept asking questions because she didn’t understand the lesson. “I hated it. I hated being inside. I hated being behind a desk. School just kind of killed me.” That explains her hasty exit. 

Lawrence was discovered at 14, but her parents wouldn’t let her start her acting career until she graduated high school. Technically, she kept up her end of the bargain, but her parents probably didn’t expect her to graduate two years early.
