Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she will take a year-long break from acting to focus on engaging young people in politics.
She made this revelation while promoting her latest film, Red Sparrow in which the 27-year-old actress plays a Russian spy.
She said: “I’m going to take the next year off. 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.”
A board member of the non-profit organisation Represent.Us said Lawrence has long been an advocate for feminism and gender equality. She founded the Jennifer Lawrence Foundation to support charities that help young people and encourage awareness and participation in the arts.
Lawrence has featured in movies like Hunger Games, Passengers, and American Hustle among others.
