Jennifer Lawrence is Forbes' Highest Grossing Actor of 2014, with a global box office worth of $1.4 billion. After her global blockbuster movies "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past," J.Law is now given the prestigious title.

Becoming Forbes' Highest Grossing Actor of 2014 is no small feat for Jennifer Lawrence. The actress had to deal with a lot of tough issues and experiences this year. She recently split up from boyfriend Nicholas Hoult and some of the nude pictures on her phone were leaked online. Still, despite these harrowing events in her life this year, the dollars raked in by her two movies made her come out on top, ahead of all other Hollywood actors and actresses.

"The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" where Jennifer Lawrence played the protagonist Katniss Everdeen, raked in $333 million in the U.S. alone. It also raked in the dollars and profits from its release globally. The X-Men Sequel, "X-Men: Days of Future Past," achieved $233 million in profits.

The top grossing actress spent her holidays as low-key as possible though, showing that despite all the huge money she is earning, going home for the holidays is still a valuable and priceless thing to do, ET Online reports. The 24-year-old just went back home in Louisville, Ky on Dec. 27 and cheered for the Louisville Cardinals during a basketball game against the Kentucky Wildcats.

It could be remembered that the actress is an out and proud Louisville Cardinals fan. She talked of her pride and love for the team once in a video for the university's move to the Atlanta Coast Conference. "I grew up in the Derby City, home to a proud and storied university, filled with rich athletic tradition and packed with fans who are as loyal and passionate as any in college sports," she stated that time. "The 'L' is the sign that connects all of us to one strong and united Card Nation."

Earlier, on Christmas Eve, she was seen at the Kosair Children's Hospital. There she shared her blessings and spread the holiday cheer to the young patients in the healthcare institution.
