It’s time once again to do the traditional round of “Before They Were Stars” clips for this year’s Academy Award nominees.

Anyway, here’s J-Law at age 14 in a terrible Burger King commercial, playing a girl whose boyfriend and boyfriend’s dad are dressed like Whoppers. Not a bad leap becoming a four-time Academy Award nominee after starting out your career with a guy in a Whopper suit telling you to eat him.
