Jennifer Lawrence Says She’s “Obese” By Hollywood Standards . . . But She Refuses to Starve Herself
“Hunger Games” minx JENNIFER LAWRENCE is aware that a lot of young girls look up to her now . . . and she’s taking that responsibility seriously.
She says, quote, “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.”
This is especially admirable because Jennifer knows full well she’s not skinny. She says, quote, “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.”
Here’s the picture of Val Kilmer she’s talking about:
And here’s what Jennifer looks like….(not even close, but we get the point — GO KATNISS!)
