Who Is Calling Jennifer Lawrence Obese?!

Ever since she was announced to star as Katniss Everdeen in the year’s highly-anticipated The Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence has had to deal with some weighty issues. Since her highly-acclaimed movie came out, the 22-year-old actress has had to hear some very rude comments about the way she looks. Luckily Jennifer has no problem talking about her eating habits – and yes, she eats! 

In the December 2012 issue of ELLE, Jen told the mag:

“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.”

While Jennifer is hardly fat, much less obese, we’re glad she can take those comments with a grain of salt! And while we’ve loved her from the get-go, she’s become our new hero, stating: 

“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.”

What’s one thing that would bug you if you were a celebrity?
