She’s an Oscar winner and one of the world’s highest-paid actresses but now Jennifer Lawrence is turning her back on Hollywood – for a year, anyway.
The Hunger Games star is taking 12 months off acting to get more “young people engaged politically”.
Lawrence is already on the board of Represent.Us. alongside frequent collaborator, director David O Russell.
The non-profit organisation campaigns to stop political bribery and pass anti-corruption laws.
Lawrence was speaking to ET about her upcoming film Red Sparrow – her last before she takes a sabbatical.
“I’m going to take the next year off,” Lawrence told ET.
“I’m going to be working with this organisation as a part of Represent. Us … trying to get young people engaged politically on a local level. It doesn’t have anything to do with partisan (politics).
“It’s just anti-corruption and stuff trying to pass state-by-state laws that can help prevent corruption, fix our democracy.”
