LOS ANGELES: One of Hollywood’s hottest star Jennifer Lawrence was supposedly taking a year-long break from the film industry. However, it has been revealed by her representative, that the actor is not going on a hiatus.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the 27-year-old star said she was going to take a break from the silver screen to focus on her work with a non-profit organisation fighting corruption. However, a representative for the actor recently confirmed to Entertainment Weekly (EW) that she will return to work when one of her several projects in development is ready to go.
According to IMDB, Lawrence currently has seven projects in development, including an untitled film with Amy Schumer, Ron Howard’s Zelda Fitzgerald biopic Zelda, Adam McKay’s Bad Blood and Luca Guadagnino’s Burial Rites among others.
In an interview with ET, the 27-year-old had reportedly said that she was going to take a break from the screen in order work with a non-profit organisation fighting corruption.
“I’m going to take the next year off,” she shared while doing press for her new spy-film Red Sparrow. “I’m going to be working with this organisation as a part of Represent.Us … trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level.”
“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.”
Lawrence has repeatedly discussed temporarily stepping back from her acting career. She first talked about taking a break in September during an appearance on Today. “I’m taking one. I don’t have anything set for two years,” she told Savannah Guthrie.
In November, she told Elle she wanted to get a farm and milk goats.
Lawrence’s relationship with Represent.Us isn’t anything new. Earlier this year, the Hunger Games star, working with the non-profit organisation, surprised students at an Ohio high school with an inspiring talk about politics. Lawrence has also spoken out on Hollywood’s gender pay gap, humiliating experiences as a woman working in Hollywood, and more.
