Lawrence, 27, currently has two movies set to release in 2018: Red Sparrow and X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Joking about what she will do with all her free time, Lawrence suggested she may “start making pots.”

The actress has had a busy run since making her professional credited acting debut in 2008. Lawrence has played a role in three movies almost every year from 2008 to 2016, including high-profile gigs in The Hunger Games franchise and the X-Men film series.

Mother! premieres in North America on Friday.
