She may be in badass shape, but “Hunger Games” actress Jennifer Lawrence won’t lose weight for her acting career.
Sick and tired of the pressure Hollywood puts on women in showbiz, she refuses to feel like an obese monster despite what harsh names media outlets have called her.
“Oh god, yes, I’m so tied of the lollipops. I mean, if I looked like that I wouldn’t be tired of it, obviously, but it’s hilarious, the way I’m supposedly the overweight one.
“Like, they (the paparazzi) got me at the movies yesterday and the caption read something like, ‘Curvy star cannot wait to dig into a tub of popcorn’. I mean come on! I’m just a normal girl who likes to eat! At least they got me using me hands.”
The view of actresses in Hollywood are so skewed it’s ridiculous – and since Jennifer knows that, the 22-year-old wants to be a healthy role model to her fans. But the role of a natural leader may be a difficult title to defend since Jennifer views herself in a completely different light than that of her “Hunger Games” persona of Katniss Everdeen.
Jennifer told the UK edition of Vogue magazine:
“I guess people expect that of me, and if I had to kill something for survival, maybe I would and yeah, maybe I was a tomboy when I was growing up. But I’m definitely a girl now … Of course, there’s a responsibility I’m aware of. In one sense, luckily, it comes naturally because I can’t stay out beyond midnight. I don’t really have an exciting life.
“But if you mean, am I natural leader? No. I just appear that way.”
