Jennifer Lawrence isn't just a victor in terms of outliving everyone else in The Hunger Games. She's also on top when it comes to making it rain.
The actress has ranked first in Vulture's third annual Most Valuable Stars list, nudging last year's top dog, Robert Downey Jr., to second place. Tough break, Iron Man.
The list itself is an evaluation of a star's value in terms of box-office success, media coverage, Internet buzz, and likability. Lawrence is just one of two women making the top five, with Sandra Bullock retaining the fourth place spot.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Denzel Washington round out the top five, but other male actors haven't fared so well. Will Smith and Christian Bale were both knocked out of the top 10 by Angelina Jolie and Bradley Cooper.
Last year's list saw J Lawr in the respectable third place spot, but this year she's the queen bee. Vulture credits her roles in two major franchises (The Hunger Games and X-Men) as well as her continued Oscar success as the reasons behind her leap up.
And, hey, what can we say? The girl's just so darn likable.
