Jennifer Lawrence, the Academy Award Winning Actress, made an announcement on Today that may come as a shock to some fans.
Lawrence, who is currently coming off a successful premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, isn't even 30 years old yet and she already has 30 acting credits under her belt. Her first major film role earned her an Oscar nomination for the film Winter's Bone at just 20 years old.
She went on to become a Hollywood favorite, staring in The Hunger Games franchise, and known for her extremely down to earth views on life.
Lawrence has had a busy few years, with at least one movie coming out every year since 2010. She's always been dedicated to her work, but at some point it was bound to catch up with her. Now, after confirming her relationship with 48-year-old co-star Darran Aronofsky, Jennifer Lawrence has made an announcement that has stunned a lot of her fans.
Lawrence was on Thursday's episode of Today, and revealed to Savannah Guthrie that she's taking a break from acting.
“I’m taking [a break]. I don’t have anything set for two years,” the Oscar winner, 27, revealed.
Lawrence admitted that her most recent project was hard to swallow, with the subject matter being so dark.
“I threw the script and was like I can’t have this in my house. I don’t want this in my home. It’s an assault. It’s really assaulting,” she said. “But that’s what makes it a masterpiece and that’s what makes Darren so brilliant and that’s why I’ve always wanted to work with him.”
Lawrence also opened up about how fame has affected her life, and how she tries not to let it get to her.
"People feel so entitled to everything. You know, like when I'm getting photographed just like walking to Starbucks, I'm like why does anybody feel - why do we feel entitled to this? [At first] I was angry and resentful because I thought that I deserved the right to do what I love and to do my job, and then still have privacy, and then after a few years you're like, but that's not the way it is, it's just not."
"But it's important to just keep a separation and know that the people screaming outside of a premiere, they're screaming because of a job and because of a character. I don't go home like, 'Oh my God!' Did you hear that, how much they love me?' So I don't put any stock on it."
