Jennifer Lawrence might be taking a break from acting

Jennifer Lawrence might be taking a break from acting

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is literally only half a year older than me and already has three Academy Award nominations — and one win — under her belt, as well as a massive franchise hit on her resume. Kind of makes you feel like a failure, huh? (Oh gawd, I’ll never be that good …) Anyway, it turns out she might be taking a small break from acting just so she can get some perspective, and … I don’t even have anything saved for retirement. WHAT IS MY LIFE?! Via HuffPo

In a recent interview with The Sun, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein teased Lawrence’s need to take a step back, explaining, “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.”

“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 continued. “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.”

Honestly, between Jennifer Lawrence winning an Academy Award for Best Actress when she was 22 and Adele writing one of the best albums ever when she was 21, really kind of makes me feel like it’s all downhill from here … What’s that? June Squibb only got her first nomination at the age of 84? Oh, praise Ornacia, people can achieve greatness at any age! Phew, really takes the pressure off. Anyway, yeah. Might be an idea for her to take a wee break. Good choice. Good choice …
