Jennifer Lawrence: I'm Never Going to Starve Myself for a Part

Jennifer Lawrence, the 22-year-old actress who starred as Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games, has some healthy thoughts on body image

She tells Elle magazine that she's not immune to comments about her weight and healthy appetite:
“I eat like a caveman, I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors. In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress, I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.”
Jennifer says she doesn't pay attention to critics and will never starve herself:
“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. 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.”
Go Jennifer!
