Are they blind?

The actress made the admission in an interview with Elle magazine.

She told the magazine: "In Hollywood, I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress. I'm Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.

"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'.

"I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong - not thin and underfed."

Well we'd say that's a pretty level headed view to have.

She explained: "My boyfriend is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I'm his best friend too.

"He's my favourite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody."

And it seems that Jen and Nick aren't your average Hollywood couple either, choosing to stay in and watch television over going out to exclusive restaurants and bars.

She joked: "We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into perverted Homer Simpsons, like, 'Oh, she's got a nice ass.'"

"I never thought we'd have such different opinions on asses."
