Friends beg j-law: ‘slow down!’

She’s one of Hol­ly­wood’s bright­est stars, but Jen­nifer’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to stay on top of her game means she’s run­ning the risk of burn­ing out…

She’s an Academy Award- win­ning ac­tress with a string of hit movies un­der her belt – there’s no deny­ing Jen­nifer Lawrence is one of the big­gest stars in the world right now. But as the 26-year-old pre­pares to start shoot­ing for the new X-men movie Dark Phoenix, we’re told that friends – and boyfriend Dar­ren Aronof­sky, 48 – are con­cerned J-law is tak­ing on too much in a bid to hold onto her A-list sta­tus.

A pal spills: ‘There’s a gen­uine fear she’s push­ing her­self too hard. It’s hard to say no when you’re in de­mand, but she’s got four films in pro­duc­tion and won’t turn down a script these days.’

Jen­nifer’s been fo­cus­ing on work lately, avoid­ing the show­biz scene in favour of film sets. But last week she also squeezed in an ap­pear­ance at the Dior Cou­ture show in Paris. Friends say that as Jen pre­pares once more for all eyes to be on her, she’s spend­ing more time on her ap­pear­ance. She cer­tainly turned heads in the French cap­i­tal, opt­ing for a white minidress, trainer boots and a knit­ted ki­mono, de­spite the soar­ing Parisian tem­per­a­tures.

‘Jen’s been charg­ing ahead with pun­ish­ing work­outs, push­ing her­self to agents and campaigning for the best scripts to be sent to her,’ says our in­sider. ‘The prob­lem is that she’s go­ing for a “quan­tity over qual­ity” ap­proach, want­ing ev­ery­thing and ev­ery­thing to be sent her way ver­sus that one killer op­por­tu­nity. Jen’s friends are con­stantly re­mind­ing her that she’s bet­ter than that.’

De­spite that, it doesn’t sound like J-law has any­thing to worry about. Last month it was con­firmed she’ll re­ceive a star on the Hol­ly­wood Walk Of Fame, at the same time as ac­tual Min­nie Mouse. There’s much worse com­pany to be in, right?

This hasn’t done any­thing to ban­ish Jen’s fears of her star­dom fad­ing, though. The friend adds: ‘She fears los­ing mo­men­tum af­ter her rapid rise to fame. She was white hot in the in­dus­try two years ago and slip­ping off the A-list is some­thing Jen­nifer thinks about a lot. But this re­lent­less pace is burn­ing her out.’

Some­one please tell J-law that we – and the world – think she’s amaz­ing just the way she is!

Jen’s been push­ing her­self very hard but her friends want to con­vince her she doesn’t need to
