Yep, you could accuse us of overkill, feel free, but we just feel like celebrating one of the soundest people in the known universe today. How bad!
Anyway, male actors rarely get repeatedly asked about "body image" during junket interviews, but the likes of Jennifer Lawrence are consistently asked - because she dares to look like something resembling normal. During a recent Yahoo Q&A/Tumblr chat to promote the latest installment of The Hunger Games series, she was thrown the body image question yet again. Did she lose the rag? Nope, she came across with the following, and even managed to get a dig in about The Fashion Police muppets (indeed, Osbourne, we're referring to you) in the process.
"You have to see past it. You look how you look, you have to be comfortable... What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb. There are shows like The Fashion Police that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it’s OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat. They call it ‘fun’ and they say ‘welcome to the real world’ - and that shouldn’t be the real world, it’s going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat.”
It's no wonder Jennifer handles such consistently inane questions with ease, have you seen what she had to contend with after accepting her award at last year's Oscars? From a refreshingly pertinent question about bi-polar to the - wait for it - 'process of putting on a dress...' And that's only the start of it.
Now that she's bagged herself an Oscar, she has some choice sentiments for anyone who might suggest she diet for a role:
"Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt... I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f***k yourself.’”
