Stars Discovered by Chance

6 of 18

Jennifer Lawrence

"The Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence recently discussed her chance discovery at the age of 14 while on vacation in New York. The Kentucky native was strolling through Union Square with her mother when she was suddenly approached by a talent scout who liked her look.

"It wasn't creepy, he didn't ask to take me anywhere, he just wanted to take a picture," she told the New York Daily News. "And then all these agencies started calling and then we just kind of went out of boredom. And then my poor mother, it was all I talked about, my obsession."

A few years and an Oscar win (for her work in "Silver Linings Playbook") later, Lawrence is quickly becoming one of the biggest stars of her generation.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
