Actress Jennifer Lawrence is planning to take a short hiatus from acting to focus on her personal life.

The Hunger Games star'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 Lawrence admits she is starting to crave a little time away from the spotlight.

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

The 23 year old's career has continued to soar since taking home an Academy Award for her role in Silver Linings Playbook earlier this year (13), and her performance in new movie American Hustle has also started to create Oscars buzz.

Next year (14), she will be featured in four films, including X-Men: Days of Future Past and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1.

One personal relationship that seems to be going well for the actress is the one with boyfriend Nicholas Hoult - the X-Men co-stars have been dating on and off since 2011.
