Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is an inspiration to all. From being bold to speak up about numerous taboo subjects to not being afraid to show her real self, she is well-cherished by many, especially young girls. Once again Lawrence proves she deserves every bit of praise and admiration as she spoke about being asked to lose weight.
If you know Jennifer Lawrence, you would know how vocal she is against unhealthy food diets and trends. Narrating an incident from her early career she expresses how she isn’t afraid to tell anyone to go ‘f*ck off’ when told to lose weight or diet.
Jennifer Lawrence Opens Up About Horrid Experience
From Katniss Everdeen to Mystique, Lawrence has earned praise and acclamations for her phenomenal acting. Even more praiseworthy is how she stood up for herself and dealt with a horrid experience in the starting days of her career. The X-Men actress was told to lose about 15 pounds in just 2 weeks for a role after being forced to stand next to much thinner actresses in a n*ked line-up.
“When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks. During this time a female producer had me do a n*de line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates.”
Jennifer Lawrence went on to disclose how humiliating it felt, to be told to compare herself and to lose weight by drawing inspiration from n*ked photos of herself.
“After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the n*ked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet.”
When she later went on to complain to a male producer about her experience, she was told that he found her perfectly fine, as in ‘perfectly f**kable.’
Jennifer Lawrence And The Word Diet
The Silver Linings Playbooks actress is never one to share her thought-provoking and strong views, be they about s*xism in Hollywood or deleterious dieting trends. Jennifer Lawrence has always been vocal about trolls and hates the dieting culture that preys on young and amateur actresses in Hollywood.
“If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f*ck yourself.'”
Rather than dieting the No Hard Feelings actress believes in having a healthy relationship with food. Unlike others, she loves to munch on pizza, cookies, Doritos, ice cream, and burgers and is never afraid to show off her love for food.
You can catch Jennifer Lawrence in No Hard Feelings, set to be released on the 23rd of June this year.
