She may be the star of The Hunger Games, but Jennifer Lawrence wants the world know she’s never actually hungry!
Known best for her role as Katniss Everdeen in the hit book-turned-movie series, the 22-year-old is considered one of Hollywood’s newest “it” stars, but that hasn’t stopped her from being scrutinized for her weight.
“In Hollywood, I’m obese,” the 22-year-old admits in a recent interview with Elle Magazine. “I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.”
The sexy 5’9” starlet is comfortable with her body though, admitting that she often chomps on Cheetos with her boyfriend during lazy nights in and never deprives herself of food.
“I eat like a caveman,” the blonde beauty admits. “I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors.”
So with all eyes on Jennifer, what prevents her from trying to fit the Hollywood mold?
“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 says of being a role model for her fans. “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.”
If there’s one thing Jennifer is not, it’s fat. Keep eating those Cheetos, girl.
