IN A RECENT INTERVIEW FOR THE DECEMBER 2012 ISSUE OF US ELLE, 22 YEAR OLD ACTRESS AND 'HUNGER GAMES' HEROINE, JENNIFER LAWRENCE CHATS ABOUT UNATTAINABLE BODY STANDARDS IN HOLLYWOOD AND EVEN BEING CONSIDERED AMONG PEERS IN THE INDUSTRY AS OBESE.

MANY HOLLYWOOD STARLETS HAVE GOT TO EXTREMES TO LOSE OR GAIN WEIGHT FOR MOVIE ROLES, BUT JENNIFER WON'T BE THAT TYPE OF STARLET.
SAYING "IN HOLLYWOOD, I'M OBESE, I'M CONSIDERED A FAT ACTRESS." SHE CONTINUES TO SAY "I'M VAL KILMER IN THAT ONE PICTURE ON THE BEACH." GUYS, YOU KNOW THE PHOTO FROM 2007 IN HIS SPEEDOS. 

SHE ALSO STATES "I EAT LIKE A CAVEMAN. I'LL BE THE ONLY ACTRESS WHO DOESEN'T HAVE ANOREXIA RUMOURS."

THINKING OF THE AFFECTS ON HER YOUNG FEMALE FANS, LAWRENCE NOTES "I'M NEVER GOING TO STARVE MYSELF FOR A PART, I DON'T WANT LITTLE GIRLS TO BE 'OH, I WANT TO LOOK LIKE KATNISS, SO I'M GOING TO SKIP DINNER', THAT'S SOMETHING I WAS REALLY CONSCIOUS OF DURING TRAINING {FOR THE MOVIE}, 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 NEED MORE ACTRESSES LIKE JENNIFER LAWRENCE. 

I WAS OVERWEIGHT IN HIGH SCHOOL (105KG, 231LBS, 16ST) AND BULLYING WAS HORRENDOUS. YOU WOULD THINK THAT WOULD ALL STOP WHEN YOU ARE AN ADULT, BUT WE ARE STILL UNDER THE SAME SCRUTINY AND THAT SHOCKS ME. 

MAGAZINES HAVE A LOT TO ANSWER FOR, WHILST ALSO NOT BEING THE ONLY ONES TO BLAME. HOW CAN YOU HAVE ONE PAGE ABOUT EATING DISORDERS AND THEN THE NEXT PAGE ABOUT DIETING? NO WONDER OUR YOUNG PEOPLE ARE SO CONFUSED ABOUT BODY IMAGE. 

MOST OF US SHOULD CONSIDER OURSELVES LUCKY THAT WE DON'T HAVE THE PUBLIC SCRUTINISING US. IT'S US SCRUTINISING OURSELVES AND THAT MAYBE WORSE.

TEACHING OUR KIDS TO BE HEALTHY, HAPPY AND MORE IMPORTANTLY BEING THEMSELVES IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN JUST FOCUSING ON THE OUTSIDE.

LET'S STOP DOING THIS TO OURSELF AND ENJOY THE BODY OUR PARENTS GAVE US. CELEBRITIES INCLUDED.
