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 Lawrence is about to have a much earned "rest".

"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," Weinstein told The Sun on Sunday.

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

"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," Weinstein said.

"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, Lawrence'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."
