Jennifer Lawrence talks body image in Hollywood
HollywoodNews.com: Jennifer Lawrence may be one of the hottest young actresses out there right now, but she is well-aware that she isn’t the typical starlet.
Lawrence opened up to ‘Elle’ that she feels like one of the bigger girls working in film, states RadarOnline. “In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach,” Lawrence commented.
But it sounds like she won’t join other actresses in changing her body for a role: “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.”
Even though she might not fit the current Hollywood ideal, Lawrence is more focused on being a great role model: “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.”
