If you thought your favourite straight-talking, pizza-loving, stair-tripping actress waited until she was famous to embarrass herself, you’d be wrong.

All Academy award-winning actresses had to start their climb to super-stardom somewhere, and Jennifer Lawrence was no different.

Unfortunately for Jennifer, people have discovered her first acting job and obviously, it’s since gone viral.

At the young age of 14-years-old, the actress who apparently doesn’t age whatsoever, starred in a promotional MTV commercial for the channel’s most Marmite show; My Super Sweet 16.

The programme followed spoilt American brats plan the most lavish 16th birthday their limited imaginations could muster as their doormat parents scrambled after them, picking up the eye-watering bills.

Jennifer took the lead role in the programme’s promo, a satire of My Super Sweet 16 and all who participated in the series, which aired to millions of MTV fanatics.

The ad features J-Law splattered with birthday cake – the consequence of an errant disco ball – and falling from a chaise longue during the obligatory grand Sweet 16 entrance.

True to form, Lawrence has embraced the blush-inducing embarrassments of her first acting job.

She even credited MTV in an acceptance speech for one of the many accolades she’s since received:

I want to thank MTV. I’ll explain that. I earned my SAG card when I was 14. I did a MTV promo for My Super Sweet Sixteen. I remember getting it in the mail and it being the best day in my entire life, because it officially made me a professional actor.

While it might not be her finest moment on the small or silver screens, it certainly is a memorable marker in Lawrence’s career.

If nothing else, it’s a great excuse for J-Law to participate in her two favourite hobbies:

Making us laugh and telling haters to fuck off.
