Jennifer Lawrence Plans to Take a Break From Acting as 'mother!' Gets F Grade on CinemaScore



The Oscar-winning actress reveals her plan to take a hiatus from acting as her new movie receives the worst grade on CinemaScore.
After having hectic schedule in the past several years, Jennifer Lawrence is ready for a timeout to enjoy herself. Her plan to take a hiatus from Hollywood is revealed as her psychological horror film "mother!" receives an F grade on CinemaScore.

"I'm taking one [a break]. I don't have anything set for two years," says the Oscar winner during her visit to "Today" show. "I don't know [what I'm going to do]. I don't know, start making pots? I think I'm just taking a little break. I'll see you in six months."

"mother!" joins Brad Pitt's 2012 "Killing Them Softly", Cameron Diaz's 2009 "The Box, Lindsay Lohan's 2007 "I Know Who Killed Me", George Clooney's 2002 "Solaris", and Richard Gere's 2000 "Dr. T and the Women" in CinemaScore's F club. Despite the failing grade, it manages to be certified 68% "fresh" rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie is coming out this weekend after hitting film festival circuit. Directed by Darren Aronofsky, it's supported by the likes of Javier Bardem, Ed Harris and Michelle Pfeiffer. It collected a disappointing $3.1 million on the opening day for a projected $8 million weekend, the worst in Lawrence's career.

When it was premiered at Venice Film Festival, the movie was reportedly booed by the crowd. But the lead actress just shrugged it off, "Our reviews are just cracking me up, people either love it or they absolutely hate it and I think that is so cool, there is not one person that has walked out."

Jlaw's previous movie, a sci-fier called "Passengers" where she shared screen with Chris Pratt, also got mixed reviews. Some of the critics believed it should have been her character, instead of Pratt's, who woke up at the beginning of the movie. She agreed with them.

"I'm disappointed in myself that I didn't spot it," she told Vogue. "I thought the script was beautiful - it was this tainted, complicated love story. It definitely wasn't a failure. I'm not embarrassed by it by any means. There was just stuff that I wished I'd looked into deeper before jumping on."

Jennifer Lawrence will next appear in spy thriller "Red Sparrow". She is also set to reprise her role as Mystique in "X-Men: Dark Phoenix".
