Jennifer Lawrence to Go on Hiatus

Jennifer LawrenceJennifer 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."

"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," he told The Sun.

The famed producer also defended her 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 favors 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 realized how much it would dominate her life. But she's a professional and always will be," the famed producer explained.


‘Gravity’ Scoops Up Six BAFTAs

Sandra Bullock and George ClooneyGravity won big at the BAFTAs last night, taking home six awards.

The 3-D space drama directed by Alfonso Cuaron and starring George Clooney and Sandra Bullock was the biggest winner of the night at the British Academy of Film and Television Awards (BAFTAs) in London, gaining trophies for Best Director, Special Visual Effects, Cinematography, Original Music, Sound and Outstanding British Film. Accepting his award, Alfonso - who is Mexican, but has lived in England for more than ten years - said, "I don't know if I can open my mouth. I consider myself a part of the British film industry. I guess I make a good case for curbing immigration." He also praised his son, Jonas, and Sandra Bullock before dedicating the award to the "downstairs" workers who had made the film's sound and effects possible.

Although Gravity won the most trophies, historical drama 12 Years A Slave was named Best Film and its star, Chiwetel Ejiofor, took the Leading Actor award. Accepting the trophy, Chiwetel thanked director Steve McQueen, saying, "Thank you for you work, your artistry and your passion in this project ... to make it of such value, of such worth. This is yours by the way - I'm going to keep it, that's the kind of guy I am, but it's yours."

Quote of the Day: ‘Catching Fire’ Director on Jennifer Lawrence’s Running

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen

"We worked on [how Jennifer Lawrence looks when she's running]. One of the first things we talked about when we started Catching Fire was that she said she always made this stupid face when she ran, and I had to specifically watch out to make sure she didn't make the stupid face when she ran. So I was always checking. I would tell her, 'You made the stupid face!'"

Josh Hutcherson Giggles During Love Scenes with Jennifer Lawrence

Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer LawrenceJosh Hutcherson finds it weird to kiss Jennifer Lawrence.

The Hunger Games hunk gets the giggles when he has to switch on the romance for love scenes with the Oscar-winning actress - who plays fearless competitor Katniss Everdeen in the fantasy franchise - because they are such good friends in real life.

"It is. There are times when we've had to cut because we can't get through a take without laughing," he told Glamour when asked if it's strange to have to seduce his pal Jennifer.

The 20-year-old actor fell for his own girlfriend, actress Claudia Traisac, while filming upcoming thriller Paradise Lost and he thinks it's natural to develop feelings for your co-stars: "As far as I'm concerned, you're both actors, you understand each other's lifestyle, so it's a very natural thing to have happen."

Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen in 'Catching Fire'

Hot off the heels of Jennifer Lawrence's Oscar win, producers of Catching Fire - the sequel to the box office hit The Hunger Games - have released a gorgeous portrait of her character in the film Katniss Everdeen. Reminiscient of a Monique Lhuillier or Alexander McQueen piece, the flowing dress softens Lawrence's austere expression (which matches those of her castmates, whose photos can be seen after the jump).

This is certainly thankfully a far cry from those severely Photoshopped Christian Dior ads!
