Jennifer Lawrence is going to take a year's break from acting.
The 23-year-old actress has made eight films in the past 12 months, and Harvey Weinstein - who worked with her on 'Silver Linings Playbook' - has revealed she is about to have a much earned "rest."
He told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "She's going to have a long break for a year where she won't do anything. It's been non-stop for her and she deserves a rest."
The famed producer also defended her decision to not attend the BAFTAs ceremony, despite receiving an award for her role in 'American Hustle.'
He explained: "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."
On top of her film careers, Jennifer's time has also been taken up as she looks to buy a house in the UK with her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.
A source recently said: "They loved the house as soon as they saw it. They know it's not realistic at this point in their thriving careers to live in the UK, but they want a bolthole across the pond.
"Jen loves the English way of life and as they are now serious again, it makes sense to look into buying somewhere."
