Is Jennifer Lawrence taking a break from showbiz?
Have we loved Jennifer Lawrence so hard that we broke her?
Despite (or because of?) our affection, the world’s most adored actress is planning to take a lengthy hiatus from acting, according to Harvey Weinstein. “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,” Weinstein, who produced “Silver Linings Playbook,” told the UK Sun.
Why does Jennifer need a rest from being a movie star? Apparently, carrying two major movie franchises while also starring in a steady stream of Oscar bait (not to mention being relentlessly charming in interviews) can wear on a person.
“Jennifer is too nice and will do people favors and agrees to do a movie like ‘American Hustle’ when she could have had a rest,” Weinstein said. “She signed on to do ‘Hunger Games’ when she was young and wouldn’t have realized how much it would dominate her life. But she’s a professional and always will be.”
Well – OK. I guess she can take a break, as long as she comes back, and assigns a substitute to make fun of Sarah Jessica Parker’s hats in her stead.
