Jennifer Lawrence Taking a Break from Acting to 'Fix Our Democracy'

Jennifer Lawrence Plans to Take the Next Year Off From Acting: Here's Why (Exclusive)

English writer and journalist, Helen Lewis was amongst the first to point this out on Twitter, labelling the picture which shows the distinct contrast between Jennifer Lawrence and her male co-stars "quitely depressing".

J-Law is set to spend a year working with the group Represent.Us along with director David O Russell. I don't like to go out'.

The "Hunger Games" star revealed while promoting her new film, "Red Sparrow", that she is taking a year off from acting to focus on political activism - and she has high hopes.

"Yesterday, on the balcony, seemed like a lose-lose situation because if Jennifer wore jeans and a coat I'm sure somebody else would have criticised (sic) her", he said. But to be fair, I couldn't have just walked out after she [described me as] "the biggest movie star in the world" and gone "thank you, Joanna".

"What if I was like, 'He's hot!' and he's 15?'" For the record, Chalamet is 22 years old, the same age Lawrence was when she joked about Hulk Hogan in this interview.

"A female producer had me do a nude lineup with about five women who were much, much thinner than me", Lawrence recounted at the Elle Women In Hollywood event previous year. I would've stood in the snow for it because I love fashion and that was my choice'.

Watching her good friend Annalisa Drew bump her off the Olympic podium with her last run made Brita Sigourney sick to her stomach. That run gave Martinod her second straight Olympic silver medal in what will likely be one of the final contests of her career.

Lawrence's post has already racked up more than 16,000 likes and been shared by hundreds of the actress' loyal fans.

I tried to ask Karlie myself, but she did not return my message. "I can not really keep up with emails, so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me". Lawrence received criticism that she was "rude" to BAFTA host Joanna Lumley after she introduced her on stage.

The actress deemed this most recent incident an overreaction.

'This is sexist, this is ridiculous, this is not feminism. It is creating silly distractions from the real issues.

Meanwhile the actress, who stunned at the United Kingdom premiere of Red Sparrow on Monday evening - thinks she is going to be "devastatingly lonely" in the next few months.
