Before she won an Oscar, Jennifer Lawrence spent the early days of her career posing for the camera as a model. The "Silver Linings Playbook" star joked about her short-lived modeling days on an episode of Conan O'Brien's late night show in February and we've been waiting anxiously to check out some pics. Kentucky-based photographer Chris Kaufman revealed a series of shots featuring a young Lawrence, who he met when shes was 12, in an E! exclusive.
In the accompanying interview with Kaufman, he revealed the young star reminded him of someone near and dear to our own city's heart:
"'When I first took her picture, I stopped shooting and I turned to my assistant and said, 'You don't see people move like that,'" Kaufman recalled. "'I was thinking she moved like Gisele [BŁndchen], and I've seen Gisele in person. It was like, 'Where did you get this ability?'
Kaufman also assured the network that the outspoken youngster (who would grow up to play the role of Katniss Everdeen in the "Hunger Games" trilogy) hasn't changed a bit, adding: "She's not going to care what she says, and the charm of her is that she will tell you what she's thinking. She will totally slip up one day and say something ridiculous but totally overcome it."
