With her disalarming self-awareness and her one-of-a-kind charm, it’s no mystery as to why Jennifer Lawrence is everyone’s current girl crush/imaginary BFF.
It is, however, baffling how there are still some people who are still fixated on her non-double zero sized body because, surprise! The Hunger Games actress has actual curves as opposed to the many Hollywood fixtures that try to diet theirs away and then land OK! Magazine covers for their efforts.
In a recent interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Lawrence revealed that she was labelled as “fat” and was encouraged to lose weight by producers.
“It was just the kind of shit that actresses have to go through,” she said. “Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight.
“They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me.”
But before you start planning an imaginary sleepover party where you comfort JLaw over a tub of Ben and Jerry’s, we think the actress is doing just fine with handling her haters. According to the interview, she has developed her own little way of dealing with such “critique.”
“If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet, I’m like, ‘You can go fuck yourself,” she said.
Jennifer Lawrence: +1 billion. Producers with shit for brains: 0
