Los Angeles, Aug 8 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The popular film actress and Oscar nominated Jennifer Lawrence is set to negotiate a massive salary raise for the next ‘Hunger Games’ installation titled “Catching fire”.

The talented 21 year old is set to multiply the $500,000 she earned in the first film by 20 times. This is a large sum and the star of the actress is surely shining bright. The actress who plays in the popular blockbuster action franchise as Everdeen Stewart has already pulled in $ 20 million dollar from the sequel of “The twilight saga: breaking dawn-part two”.

The twilight saga is set to hit the theaters this November. The $20 million paycheck seems to be unfathomable ridiculous high especially due to the shaky economy. However, Forbes rates Jennifer Lawrence together with her estrangement who incidentally is also her cast mate as one of Hollywood’s best bargains. In that regard, Forbes does not seem too amused by all the hullabaloo of Jenifer Lawrence earning that kind of money.

According to Forbes, Jennifer Lawrence earns a dollar for every $ 55.83 that her films earn. This is a far cry to the $1 that Eddie Murphy earns for every $2 that his films make. This is probably the reason why Forbes considers Eddie Murphy as one of Hollywoods’ most overpaid actors. Lawrence is set to earn even more as if hunger games attains the popularity of films and series such as the Twilight and Potter series.
