Here we have a good news for actress Jennifer Lawrence’s fans as their favorite star is not going anywhere away from acting!
According to Friday’s report from Entertainment Tonight, the Oscar-winning star Lawrence was planning to take a year off from acting in order to focus on activism. A rep for America’s highest-paid actress told EW that Lawrence will be back at work when her one of the many projects, which are lined up for her, is ready to work.
The actress is currently having seven projects in development lined up for her, including an unnamed movie with actress Amy Schumer — who recently tied the knot with chef Chris Fischer in a secret wedding ceremony this week — Luca Guadagnino’s Burial Rites, Ron Howard’s Zelda Fitzgerald biopic Zelda, Adam McKay’s Bad Blood, and many more, according to IMDB.
In a recent interview with ET, Lawrence said that she was going to take a break from her acting career so that she can work with a non-profit organization fighting to end corruption.
The 27-year-old actress said while doing press for her upcoming Francis Lawrence’s directorial American spy film Red Sparrow, which is all set to hit the theaters on March 2: “I’m going to take the next year off.” She went on to say, “I’m going to be working with this organization as a part of Represent.Us … trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”
Lawrence said, “It doesn’t have anything to do with partisan [politics].” She added, “It’s just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state by state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy.”
The Red Sparrow star repeatedly talked about taking a step back from acting. Lawrence first discussed taking a break from her acting career during an appearance on Today back in September, where she told Savannah Guthrie, “I’m taking one. I don’t have anything set for two years.”
