Jennifer Lawrence was just 14 when she was visiting NYC and was approached by a modeling scout. She soon decided that she didn't want to be a model, but an actress, and would only sign with an agency that would let her audition for acting roles as well. She landed an agent and quickly began to get jobs. She told 60 Minutes, "I dropped out of middle school. I don’t technically have a GED or a diploma. I am self-educated."
