22 year old actress of the hit 2012 film The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence sat down with Elle magazine about how people felt she didn’t look…well “hungry” enough for the hit film that landed her both award and nominations from the Teen Choice, MTV Movie, and People’s Choice awards. She talked with the magazine about Hollywood’s pressure to stay thin to succeed and how she will not starve herself for any role!
In Hollywood I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kimer in the one picture on the beach!
No she did not take it there! She also said “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!”
You rock on girl! The full interview hits magazine stands November 13.
The actress will began to replay her highly credited character, Katniss Evergreen, in the follow up film, The Hunger Games: Taking Fire, which is set to film beginning 2013 and also “X-Man Days of Future’s Past”
