To the surprise of no one, Jennifer Lawrence is the summer's most likable movie actress, according to a new study by TheWrap. The site had The Q Scores company poll 1,800 people to measure the likability (i.e. the Q Score) and the recognizability of the ladies of this summer's biggest movies.
J.Law, who stars in X-Men: Days of Future Past, tops the list with a Q Score of 27. She's followed by Tammy's Melissa McCarthy (25) and Maleficent's Angelina Jolie and A Most Wanted Man's Rachel McAdams (tied at 23).
At the bottom of the list of two dozen names is Sin City: A Dame to Kill For's Rosario Dawson (10).
We took the list a step further and found the two actresses with the greatest differences in their recognizability ratings relative to their Q Scores for more insights.
For example, Shailene Woodley is a relative unknown — with a recognizability rating of only 15 — but very well-liked, with a Q Score of 22. That suggests that Shai is an underrated gem.
On the other end of the spectrum, Sex Tape's Cameron Diaz is hugely recognizable (with a score of 82) but suffering with a relatively low Q Score (19) — suggesting the public may have reached their Cameron saturation point. Aww, Cam, we still love you!
