Jennifer Lawrence 'Taking A Year Off Acting'

Exhausted star reportedly set to enjoy a 12-month break after The Hunger Games...

Jennifer Lawrence is set to take a whole year off of acting when she finishes work on The Hunger Games, it has been claimed.

As well as appearing as Katniss Everdeen in the hit franchise, the 23-year-old screen sensation has also been shooting X-Men: Days Of Future Past and working hard during awards season for American Hustle.

Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who funded Silver Linings Playbook - for which J-Law won an Oscar, told The Sun that she needs a break after a very hectic few years.

"She's going to have a long break for a year where she won't do anything," he explained. "It's been non-stop for her and she deserves a rest.

"Jennifer is too nice and will do people favours and agrees to do a movie like American Hustle when she could have had a rest.

"She signed on to do Hunger Games when she was young and wouldn't have realised how much it would dominate her life. But she's a professional and always will be."

J-Law has previously suggested that she intends to slow down for a year after The Hunger Games.
