Jennifer Lawrence is one actress who says she will never go on a crash diet for a movie. The Hunger Games actress reveals she has a large appetite and doesn’t want to change that.
I eat like a caveman, I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumours, the 22-year-old told the December issue of Elle magazine. In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress, I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.
Lawrence added that one of the reasons why she doesn’t want to lose weight (not that she needs to) is to be a good role models for young girls who watch her movies.
I’m never going to starve myself for a part… I don’t want little girls to be like, ˜Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner, she said. 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.
It’s admirable that Lawrence wants to be a good role model for young girls, but calling her own athletic figure obese, even when referring to Hollywood standards, is probably not going to help her cause.
