When Jennifer Lawrence wrote her recent op-ed, speaking out against gender inequality, she wasn't looking for compliments. She was simply looking for people to pay women the same as men if they're equally qualified for the job.

Just because the Hunger Games actress wasn't fishing for compliments, doesn't mean she didn't get any--and one in particular likely trumps the rest.

Yes, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lauded Jennifer Lawrence, saying it's hard to speak out against issues, especially when it might make you unpopular.

Jennifer Lawrence even received kudos from male actors. Bradley Cooper has worked with Jennifer Lawrence a number of times. The two starred in The Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle.

Jennifer Lawrence is nothing if not gutsy. She hasn't taken on just Hollywood, either. She has taken on gender inequality everywhere.

Hollywood needs a strong female figure who is not only brilliant on the big screen, but brilliant and brave behind the scenes as well.

They have certainly found that in Jennifer Lawrence.
