Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Jennifer Lawrence discussed taking a break from acting while appearing on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Colbert asked Lawrence what she would do doing if she took a permanent break from acting.

"I think I would be a really good housekeeper. I really do. I make a mess but I'm really good at cleaning it up. I can attack a mess," Lawrence said before later detailing her break from acting.

"I took a break and nobody really cared and it was quiet and I got to like, kind of feel like I could become a part of the world again without fanfare," she said.

Colbert then mentioned how the world got crazier over the last few years while Lawrence allowed herself to get quieter.

"The world should take a break," she responded.
