Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who funded Silver Linings Playbook - for which J-Law won an Oscar, told The Sun that she needs a break after a very hectic few years.
"She's going to have a long break for a year where she won't do anything," he explained. "It's been non-stop for her and she deserves a rest.
"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.
"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."
