(WTVM) – Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence has been named the top-grossing actor of 2014.

The 24-year-old tops Forbes' list of top-grossing actors, raking in a total of $1.4 billion. This number will continue to rise because one of her movies is still showing in theaters.

In 2014, Lawrence has starred in movies such as Mockingjay and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Next year, she will star in the final installment of The Hunger Games series films.

This is a big jump in the rankings for Lawrence; last year Lawrence was number 10 on the list.

Rounding out the 2014 top five list include: Chris Pratt, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Wahlberg, and Chris Evans.
