Jennifer Lawrence isn't getting a vacation anytime soon.

As E! News told you yesterday, she spent the day after her Oscar win getting her blond hair dyed to Katniss Everdeen's brunette locks because she was flying to Hawaii for two weeks of Catching Fire reshoots.

Then she'll reunite with her Silver Linings Playbook costar Bradley Cooper and their director David O. Russell on his untitled movie about the FBI's Abscam investigation of the late 1970s and early '80s.

Hopefully, she'll squeeze in vacation after that but before shooting the X-Men sequel.

"I want to sit on my couch and drink and not change my pants for days at a time," she told me on the Oscars red carpet. "Don't ask me about my schedule because I'm sinking into a bit of depression."

At least X-Men won't be as painful. J.Law told me in December they were trying to figure out another way of turning her blue because the body paint used the first time around caused nasty skin irritations. Things got so bad that a doctor was called to set.

"I'm so excited because I'm going to wear a body suit," she said. "It will be from neck down so it will cut out time and the blisters."

Shooting begins "May-ish," Lawrence said. "I haven't read the script yet. I haven't had 30 minutes. They literally gave me the script and I was like, 'I can't read this until Monday."
