Jennifer Lawrence: 'In Hollywood, I'm Obese. I'm Considered A Fat Actress'

8 November 2012

Jennifer Lawrence, the 'Hunger Games' actress teenagers across the globe would kill to look even vaguely like, has admitted that in Hollywood she is considered 'obese'.

Speaking to Elle magazine, the shapely 22 year-old admitted that despite the fact she's happy with her own shape, much of the Hollywood glitterati are less than pleased.

"In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress,"Jennifer told the December issue of the publication. "I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach," she added, referring to how the once-buff Kilmer has piled on the pounds over the years.

The youngster went on to talk food, revealing that even a star film role would not force her to change her eating habits: "I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumours!"

She won't be doing a Mila Kunis or Natalie Portman, then: '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." Good on her!

The actress says she wants to be a good role model for her fans, sharing: "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, 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."

Lawrence also discussed her relationship with British actor boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. She gushed: '[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody."
