Jennifer Lawrence has disclosed to Today on Thursday that she is taking a break from acting.
“I’m taking [a break]. I don’t have anything set for two years,” the mother! star told Savannah Guthrie.
Lawrence isn’t sure what her time off will look like, but she did seem to find Guthrie’s suggestion of wearing sweatpants more often particularly interesting. She did have one small idea.
“Start making pots.” she quipped.
The Hunger Games star stated the drawbacks of fame during her interview with Guthrie.
“I was angry and resentful because I thought that I deserved the right to do what I love and 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 important to just keep a separation and know that the people who are screaming outside a premier, they’re screaming because of a job and a character…I don’t put any stock in it.”
Jennifer Lawrence relayed how she felt about her latest role in mother!. She said it was “much darker” that what she is used to acting in, and she had to listen to Christmas music to pull herself out of character.
She is currently dating Darren Aronofsky, the director of the film.
“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. 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,” she said.
Jennifer Lawrence won’t be completely out of the spotlight. She will be busy promoting X-Men: Dark Phoenix in the coming months.
