Jennifer Lawrence Once Again Sends A Powerful Message About Body Image

In order for Hollywood to quit body-shaming you, you have to earn $52 million a year and be able to nab any role you want.

J-Law has previously spoken out about how she was told to lose weight for roles and has been very open about her eating habits (specifically her intense love of pizza). But last week, at Comic-Con, she said she might be successful enough for Hollywood to stop criticizing her body, reported Time.

I had a conversation with somebody about the struggles with weight in the industry — I know that’s something I talk nonstop about. And they were saying, "All of the main movie stars aren’t very underweight." I said, "Yeah, because once you get to a certain place, people will hire you. They just want you to be in the movie, so they don’t care."It’s more about the struggle for actors and actresses who have not made it to a certain place, and there’s a lot of pressure.

We're glad that, even though she's made it big with the X-Men and Hunger Games franchises, she's still sticking up fervently for those struggling to make a name for themselves, because Hollywood can be a cruel place for women.
