Jennifer Lawrence Considered Obese By Hollywood Standards?

Celluloid ‘It’ girl Jennifer Lawrence graces the cover of Elle Magazine’s December Issue and opens up about body image in Hollywood.

The Oscar-nominated actress has spoken up about the unhealthy body image types Hollywood projects with it’s stars and she does not want any part of this!

She spoke to the magazine and put the industry and many other actresses on blast basically saying they are responsible for young girls having eating disorders. But unlike others Lawrence says she is not going to ever starve herself for a role or sacrifice her health for her career. Meanwhile, look what having a healthy body image has done for her career: amazing things!

She even goes as far to say she eats like a caveman and relishes the thought of being probably the only actress in Hollywood NOT to be plagued by anorexia rumors.

This all started when many critics thought her figure was too “womanly” to play the character of Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. While the story is based around starving children, Hollywood and its stars still have a duty to project realistic and healthy goals for young impressionable fans. It is, after all, a fictional movie and Jennifer is a real person.

“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 to Elle Magazine. “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.”

Jennifer you are our hero! Thank you for standing up for a generation of young girls who think to be like a Hollywood star means to change who they are and almost kill themselves. We applaud your realistic approach and not being afraid to ruffle a few feathers, for the sake of the greater good!
