  • Jennifer Lawrence reveals her plans for the future once Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 filming has wrapped

    Jennifer Lawrence is hands down one Hollywood’s most hard-working actresses, so it’s no wonder she’s keen for a little breather from the showbiz spotlight.

    The 23-year-old Silver Linings Playbook star, who is about to resume her role as Mystique in the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, has revealed that she plans to step away from the cameras once her work has concluded on The Hunger Games.

    After admitting that she only has herself to blame for her hectic past few years, hopping from film set to film set, Jen told Empire magazine:

    ‘It’s okay, it’s my fault. I get little breaks here and there.

    ‘But on the last day of Hunger Games [Mockingjay – Part 2], I’m going to turn my phone off for a year!’

    As one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actresses, we have a feeling that could be tough. But it’s not the first time Jen has hinted at taking a career break…

    Last year, she told USA Today: ‘I’ve built my career. I need to build my human life. I need to get a house and connect to the people around me and not work for a little while.’

    The Oscar award-winning starlet, who is currently dating British actor Nicholas Hoult, has also been musing about a possible future in the world of TV.

    When asked what was next on her list following her impressive Oscar win, Jennifer told Empire magazine:

    ‘I don’t know… go into television? Or do something totally unexpected. I’ll start doing voiceovers for Animal Planet. No, but seriously now, that’s something I really want to do.’
