Estreou-se no cinema como figurante em 1924, mas tornou-se uma das estrelas mais populares do cinema mudo a partir de 1927 quando estreou "Seventh Heaven", que em português recebeu o título de "Sétimo céu".
Foi a primeira actriz a receber o Oscar de melhor actriz, em 1928, pelos filmes "Sétimo céu" e "Aurora". A partir daí, a carreira consolidou-se e Janet apareceu em quase quarenta filmes, todos realizados pela Fox.
Em 1937, estreou a primeira versão de "Nasce uma Estrela". Em 1939, insatisfeita com os papéis que lhe eram oferecidos, Janet abandona o cinema e, na década de 50, compra uma herdade no Brasil com o terceiro marido, Paul Gregory, que permaneceu ao seu lado até sua morte em 1984. Anteriormente, Janet tinha casado duas vezes, com Jesse Peck (1929 a 1933) e Adrian Greenburg (1939 a 1959, quando ele morreu) com quem teve um filho. No final da década de 60, vendeu o imóvel do Brasil e voltou à Califórnia.
Dois anos antes de morrer, aos 77 anos, vítima de pneumonia, Janet sofreu um grave acidente automobilístico no qual quebrou várias costelas, a clavícula e a bacia.

Janet Gaynor, first Oscar winner, in 1927
Janet Gaynor “Naturally, I was thrilled but being the first year, the Academy Awards had no background or tradition, and it naturally didn’t mean what it does now. Had I known then what it would come to mean in the next few years, I’m sure I’d have been overwhelmed. At the time, I think I was more thrilled over meeting Douglas Fairbanks.” (Gaynor on receiving the first Academy Award for Best Actress in 1928).

In a production still from the 1919 film Don’t Change Your Husband, actress Gloria Swanson is shown in profile. Swanson was one of the most prominent actors during the silent film era and was often directed by the famous Cecil B. DeMille. She was also nominated for the first Academy Award in the Best Actress category but lost to Janet Gaynor. Beyond acting, she was also considered a fashion icon around the world
