Is it just us, or is Jennifer Lawrence refreshing in every way?
She's got the smarts to go along with the beauty, the acting chops, and guess what? Hollywood can freakin' shove it when it comes to her weight and how they view women!
“In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach. I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors.”
There comes a time when a role will pop up that requires the actor or actress to diet dangerously to get a certain look. Jennifer will never do that, because, why in the hell would someone do that to themselves:
“I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen. I’m invincible. 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 that 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.”
Best. Role model. Ever.
We're blown away by how aware she is of everything. All of her professional moves are calculated, and they do not compromise!
We wish other actresses would pick up on this — not only is it physically healthy, it's mentally healthy… for a lot of people!
