After starring in different films and winning an Oscar, Jennifer Lawrence took a well-deserved break from public life and the entertainment industry to protect herself from the global pandemic and also to enjoy the small pleasures that with so much work and a full schedule it was lost.
But he finally returned to the screen in the hands of the Netflix comedy Don’t Look Up And in the midst of all the promotion for the film, it was inevitable that he would give a few interviews, where he revealed various details, including the reason why he walked away from acting.
The actress was away from everything for two years and during that time, she married her partner, Cooke Maroney, and then, in mid-2021, announced that they were expecting their first child together. Her life was going great, but she was also eager to get back into acting and she did, with a rather dark comedy created by Adam McKay and an incredible cast including celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Meryl Streep and Jonah Hill.
Apparently, her apparent big step toward being “calmer” was intentional, as there came a point where she felt like everyone was “sick” of her for being the center of attention. In an extensive interview for Vanity Fair she opened up about motherhood and her fear of coming back.
I’m so nervous, I haven’t talked to the world in an eternity. And coming back now, when I have all these new accessories adding to my life that I obviously want to protect… I’m nervous for you. I’m nervous for myself.
I think everyone’s had enough of me. I had gotten tired of myself. He had reached a point where he couldn’t do anything right. If he was walking down a red carpet, it was, ‘Why didn’t he run?’
Before her disappearance, Jennifer was one of the most talked about and followed stars on social networks although she did not have official accounts. Despite this, many admired her because they saw her as more achievable than other of her peers in the industry.
As a result, everyone clung to his refreshing personality and even a video was created called Jennifer Lawrence, funny moments. But her oversaturation of thoughts led her to feel that the world had grown tired of her “existence.”
I felt like I had reached a point where people don’t just like my existence. So that made me think that work or your career can bring any kind of peace to your soul.
Well now that she’s finally back on the big screen and explained all her feelings, we think Jennifer made the right decision.
