Jennifer Lawrence is planning to keep away from acting for a while. The American Hustle star wants to take a short hiatus from acting to focus on her personal life, as per a report in Daily Life.

"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."

Jennifer Lawrence, at 23, is the current toast of Hollywood. She's young, talented, gorgeous and one of the most sought after actresses. Brilliantly following up her Oscar winning act in Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence delivered a superb performance in this year's, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

Her performance in the new movie American Hustle has also started to create an Oscars buzz and she is ready to set the screen ablaze yet again with her upcoming superhero flick, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Lawrence's career has moved at a fast pace since garnering critical acclaim and her first Oscar nomination for her breakout role in 2010's Winter's Bone, and she admits she is starting to crave a little time away from the spotlight.

Next year, she will be featured in four films, including the X-Men sequel and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1. On the personal front, her relationship with boyfriend Nicholas Hoult seems to be going well. The X-Men co-stars have been dating on and off since 2011.

The pair had split up but now seem to be back on track again, with Lawrence even sparking rumours that they were engaged when she wore a huge diamond on her ring finger for the premiere of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, reports Yahoo.
