Jennifer Lawrence to go on year-long break

Los Angeles  - Jennifer Lawrence is going to take a year's break from acting.

The 23-year-old actress has made eight films in the past 12 months, and Harvey Weinstein - who worked with her on Silver Linings Playbook - has revealed she is about to have a much earned ''rest''.

He told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "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."

The famed producer also defended her decision to not attend the BAFTAs ceremony, despite receiving an award for her role in American Hustle.

He explained: '"Jennifer is too nice and will do people favours and agrees to do a movie like American Hustle when she could have had a rest.

''She signed on to do Hunger Games when she was young and wouldn't have realised how much it would dominate her life. But she's a professional and always will be.''

On top of her film careers, Jennifer's time has also been taken up as she looks to buy a house in the UK with her boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.

A source recently said: ''They loved the house as soon as they saw it. They know it's not realistic at this point in their thriving careers to live in the UK, but they want a bolthole across the pond.

''Jen loves the English way of life and as they are now serious again, it makes sense to look into buying somewhere.''
