In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen. I’m invincible. 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 that I was really conscious of during training. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.


A good article to take a look at: 6 Reasons Why Jennifer Lawrence's Diet Is The Best {to clarify, "diet" here means how she eats- not a list of rules. The point of the article is she has no food rules}.

Simply put: she's fucking awesome.

Have you seen recent photos of her for the catching fire shindig? She looks like she has lost a good amount of weight. I hope she did it healthily but either way it makes me sad because she didn't need to lose weight to begin with.

I guess I don't know what you mean. I've read a few articles about her with recent pictures and she looks the same to me.

All sarcasm aside, she has won a bunch of awards for her lead role in Silver Linings Playbook {inc Golden Globe, Oscar, and Academy Award}, hosted SNL, is the female lead in the Hunger Games movies {won a bunch of awards for that as well}, is in the X-Men movies, and a handful of other things.

She's fairly sassy and honest, which gets her a lot of press. Every interview with her is hilarious. Like this situation and also this.

The character she plays in The Hunger Games supposedly has lived in famine her entire life, so I can see her losing some weight to play that part. Katniss is supposed to be strong, not healthy. She has shown that she can perform well at a normal weight without it having to be part of her shtick ("look at this chick, she's fat and funny!"), and seems to be a good role model so far. Plus, when a friend of mine's sister met her at a cafe, she was totally cool with holding my friend's baby niece and posing for some pictures, and apparently she was really nice. I'm a fan.

She said during the hunger games that she wouldn't lose weight for the role. She didn't want young girls looking at a thin Latinas and striving to look like that. I agree she is a great role model and I'm a huge fan of hers. She just looks like she has lost weight recently and it's a bit concerning. (Her face and arms are the part that look thinner in her recent photos).

Her movie, winters bone, was fantastic.
