Jennifer Lawrence is ready to step back from acting.
The “mother!” star announced her decision on “Today” Thursday morning.
“I’m taking [a break]. I don’t have anything set for two years,” Lawrence, 27, revealed to Savannah Guthrie.
The former “Hunger Games” star isn’t sure how she’ll spend her time off — though she did seem intrigued by Guthrie’s suggestion of spending more time in sweatpants — but she does have one idea.
“Start making pots,” Lawrence joked.
The actress also discussed the drawbacks of fame in her interview.
“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,” Lawrence said. “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. ”
Lawrence — who is currently dating “mother!” director Darren Aronofsky — called her latest role “much darker” than what she normally takes on and disclosed that she had to listen to Christmas music to get out of the film’s mindset.
“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,” she said. “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.”
Though she’s taking a break now, Lawrence’s fans shouldn’t worry about the star’s complete disappearance. She still has a few projects left to promote, including next year’s “X-Men: Dark Phoenix.”
“I’ll see you in six months,” she quipped at the close of the interview.
