Jennifer Lawrence Talks Body Image, Calls Herself “Obese” (PHOTO)

When describing Jennifer Lawrence, adjectives like “talented, gorgeous, flawless, and amazing” come to mind, but the Hollywood It Girl describes herself as “fat” and “obese.”

By celebrity standards, that is.

“In Hollywood, I’m obese,” she says in ELLE’s December 2012 cover interview. “I’m considered a fat actress.”

But she’s not concerned with this stigma; in fact, she prefers it that way.

“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,’” she explains. “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.”

We think J. Law is perfect just the way she is, and we’re glad she is such a positive role model for young girls. Do you agree with Hollywood’s standards? Weigh in below.
