Producer Harvey Weinstein is telling everyone that Academy Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, who is up for another Oscar, is taking a year off from Hollywood.

If Lawrence does check out for awhile, who could blame her after appearing in such critically-acclaimed hits as "Silver Linings Playbook," where she worked with Weinstein, and "American Hustle," to the "Hunger Games" series along with the upcoming "X Men: Days of Future Past."

Lawrence, 23, has been nominated for Oscars three times since 2011, for best actress in 2011's "Winter's Bone," and winning in that category for 2012's "Silver Linings Playbook." Lawrence is up for best supporting actress in last year's "American Hustle."

"Jennifer is too nice and will do people favors and agrees to do a movie like 'American Hustle' when she could have had a rest," Weinstein told The Sun. "She signed on to do Hunger Games when she was young and wouldn't have realized how much it would dominate her life. But she's a professional and always will be."

In a December interview with USA Today, Lawrence expressed a need to step away from Hollywood after her long list of films and accomplishments.

"I've built my career. I need to build my human life," Lawrence told USA Today. "I need to get a house and connect to the people around me and not work for a little while."

Lawrence said her reality consist of living out of hotel on various film shoots, but would like to purchase a home after filming the latest "Hunger Games" installments that conclude in June.

She told the newspaper that enjoys watching reality shows, such as "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" and keeps her Oscar at her mother's house to "avoid any weirdness when friends come over."

"I just get allergic to that kind of thing," Lawrence told USA Today, explaining how uncomfortable she feels when people her like a star. "People treating you differently when you don't feel any differently is really alienating. You can see, the way they look at you. I can see if that was who I surrounded myself with, that's why you change. I find people who don't change. That's where I get my reality."
