The 22-year-old actress, who is currently recovering from mild pneumonia, has been working flat out, filming the sequel for the hit science fiction/adventure movie, while conducting multitudes of interviews and attending various ceremonies in support of her last flick, Silver Linings Playbook, which earned her a number of accolades, including a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical, and an Oscar nomination. Not to mention, dealing with heart break after splitting from long-term boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.
Her insanely busy schedule has left pals concerned that Jennifer has been neglecting her health and become malnourished — and with the immense pressure of fitting into Oscar-worthy gowns, a dilemma for any actress in the spotlight, they worry she’s not eating enough.
“Jennifer’s not had a moment to think this year, with all the awards ceremonies she’s attended and filming The Hunger Games at the same time,” a friend tells Radar.
“She’s under a lot of pressure, and with all the strain Jennifer’s been putting her body under it was no surprise she caught pneumonia.
“The physically demanding action scenes she’s doing, as well as the pressure of staying slim and looking good on the red carpet, was all too much for her to juggle and she just ran out of steam.
“She wasn’t eating enough food before taking part in the stunts and as a result became malnourished,” the pal reveals.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Jennifer is the most sought after celebrity on the red carpet this awards season.
The world’s top designers are clamoring to have their designs adorn the pretty star’s figure in the weeks leading up to the Academy Awards.
“Jennifer’s in demand on screen and off it – everyone wants a piece of her,” a source told RadarOnline.com.
“Both Jennifer and her stylist have been flooded with offers from designers to wear their clothing and jewelry for the Oscars.
“At the moment they’re just reviewing what’s on offer, but some of the jewelry designers are offering a lot of money for Jennifer to wear their expensive necklaces and earrings. “
