As the University of Louisville moves into the Atlantic Coast Conference for the 2014-2015 season, it just made a big statement to its new rivals in the conference.
The university tapped Oscar-winner Jennifer Lawrence to voice over a new promo video.
“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,” the “Hunger Games” star, 23, says in the video on the school’s website.
A soft-spoken Lawrence continues, saying the people of the region “live and breathe the Cardinals.”
“The ‘L’ is the sign that connects all of us to one strong and united Card Nation,” she says. “Now the next chapter of Louisville athletics is upon us as we join the prestigious ACC and prepare to face some of history’s most accomplished and elite collegiate programs.”
She expands on the competition on the courts, gridirons and fields and how they will be fierce.
“Let’s do this,” she ends the video with a picture of her sporting a Cardinal T-shirt.

Action heroes don’t always have to be men. That’s the lesson actress Jennifer Lawrence is teaching Hollywood, $1 million at a time. As Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games movies, she fights for her life against a tyrannical government without spending much time worrying about which boy she’s going to choose. Her butt-kicking ways have helped the franchise earn $1.5 billion so far with two more movies on the way.
She also showed off her action chops in the recent X-Men: Days of Future Past. As shape-shifting mutant Mystique, Lawrence had plenty of fight scenes and her star power helped make the movie the highest-grossing of the X-Men films with $700 million at the global box office so far.
Oh, and Lawrence can also act. Just 23 years old, Lawrence has been nominated for three Academy Awards. She won the Best Actress award in 2013 for Silver Linings Playbook.
That combination of action hero and award-winning actress makes Jennifer Lawrence the most powerful actress in Hollywood right now. We estimate that she earned $34 million between June 2013 and June 2014. Lawrence ranks 12th on our Celebrity 100 power list, which makes her the highest-ranked actress.
And she also ranked #12 on forbes ‘most powerful celebrities’ list
Actress and Kentucky native Jennifer Lawrence along with her brother are doing their part to help a young Louisville girl recover from her battle with leukemia.
Hadley Mercer was diagnosed at only six months old. She recently celebrated her first birthday in the hospital with her parents and two older sisters. Hadley has undergone 20 spinal taps and chemotherapy treatment for months to battle her aggressive cancer. She received a bone marrow transplant in April, and the family has learned the chemo and transplant worked.
Hadley’s now in remission, but she’s still in the hospital for treatment for complications from the transplant.
There have been some bright spots along the way. In December, Lawrence, who is a family friend, visited Hadley and other children at the hospital.
“She (Jennifer Lawrence) had to put on a gown and mask and she came in and saw Hadley and gave her a signed poster,” said Ashlie Mercer, Hadley’s Mother. “It will be cool when Hadley is older.”
“She’s always had a soft spot for children, and especially sick children, so that was kind of what led to her going down there – help the family,” said Ben Lawrence, Jennifer Lawrence’s Brother.
Ben is helping organize a block party through the company he co-owns, Louisville Geek, along with several other businesses.
The money raised at the block party this Saturday, June 21 will help the Mercers pay their medical bills.
Ben says they expect one item up for auction to be especially popular: a trip to a private island in Belize arranged by the Oscar-winning actress, an island she herself has visited.
Jennifer Lawrence has also donated signed memorabilia from the Hunger Games and American Hustle to be auctioned at the block party.
