Jennifer Lawrence Says It Should Be Illegal to Call People “Fat”
Jennifer Lawrence: actress, Academy Award-winner and self-acceptance queen. While we have major respect for the 23-year-old talent for her portrayals of strong female characters such as Katniss in The Hunger Games and Mystique in X-Men, there’s something we respect about her more and that is her outlook on body image.
During her interview with Barbara Walters‘ on the TV personality’s 10 Most Fascinating People, the American Hustle actress opened up, once again, about weight issues in the media. And we absolutely LOVE her for it. To find out what she said, peek through our gallery of the ultimate Jennifer Lawrence weight, diet and body quotes below!
"I'm never going to starve myself for a part... I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner.' That’s something I was really conscious of during training, when you're trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong — not thin and underfed."
