Jennifer Lawrence Slams Weight-Obsessed Critics: “I’m the Overweight One?”
The bodies of Hollywood celebrities (particularly women) has always a talking point for the media, but Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence is frustrated by the subjectivity.
You might remember that when we got our first glimpse of Jennifer as Katniss, many critics thought that the Oscar nominee looked too “well-fed” to play the part of an impoverished District 12 resident.
And the weight-related comments didn’t stop there, as the 22-year-old explained in British Vogue’s November issue.
“I'm so tired of the lollipops,” Jennifer says, referring to stick-thin Hollywood celebs.
“I mean, if I looked like that, I wouldn't be tired of it, obviously. But it's hilarious, the way I'm supposedly the overweight one? Like, [tabloids] got me at the movies yesterday and the caption read something like, ‘Curvy star cannot wait to dig into tub of popcorn.’ I mean, c'mon!”
Jen, take it from us couch potatoes who love digging into tubs of popcorn: You’re beautiful and you eat like a human being. More power to you!
