Jennifer Lawrence announces she’s quitting famous film franchise

Jennifer Lawrence's final turn as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games will hit our screens at the end of this year – but that's not all that will be coming to an end.

The actress revealed this week that she's saying goodbye to the X-Men franchise too, with one final appearance in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse next year.

Speaking to MTV at the premiere of her period drama film Serena, J-Law confirmed her departure, saying, "It is my last one, actually."

Jennifer's exit will be the end of an era, after four years so far in the role of shape-shifter Mystique.

The series must hold a lot of memories for the actress, after she met her ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult on the set of X-Men: First Class back in 2011.

The pair broke up last year after three years together, and Jennifer has since moved on with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

It's thought that next year's film might be Nicholas' last appearance in the franchise too, unless he decides to renew his contract.

Former cast members Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will not feature in the upcoming film.
