On Thursday, while promoting her latest movie Mother!, actress Jennifer Lawrence made a rather stunning revelation to NBC co-host Savannah Guthrie that’s leaving many with their mouths agape.
Asked if she’s thinking about taking a break from acting, Lawrence said “I’m taking one. I don’t have anything set for two years.”
“I think I’m just taking a little break,” she added before saying, “I’ll see you in six months.”
This surprising break may come as she is one of Hollywood’s most politically outspoken stars. She was a very vocal critic of Trump and his supporters during the presidential campaign, even claiming that Trump’s election would mark the world’s end.
“If Donald Trump becomes president, that will be the end of the world,” the Hunger Games star said in 2015 at a promotional press junket. In the wake of Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton, Lawrence told her fans the election was proof that sexism and racism is still America’s “stark reality.”
The actress faced fire earlier this month after she appeared to claim that the deadly hurricanes Harvey and Irma were nature’s wrathful response to the election of Trump.
The star’s political activism may be hurting her box office brand.
“Almost exactly five years after the release of House at the End of the Street — despite numerous Oscar nominations (and a win) and starring in two huge franchises (Hunger Games, X-Men), Lawrence’s hateful and bigoted mouth, her relentless attacks on men, Christians, President Trump and his supporters — could result in a record low opening for a Jennifer Lawrence film in wide release,” Breitbart News’ John Nolte writes.
