In Real Life Jennifer Lawrence is NOT Playing “The Hunger Games”

At a Hunger Games Screening

I like food. I don’t really diet or anything. I’m miserable when I’m dieting and I like the way I look. I’m really sick of all these actresses looking like birds.


If you don’t know who Jennifer Lawrence is then you know her face- she has been everywhere of late and  after March 23 you will have a hard time getting away from her body and her image as she portrays the Katniss Everdeen, protagonist in the cinematic rendering of The Hunger Games trilogy. With the opening of the first installment so near the cast have been on a whirlwind press tour so more and more interviews and snippets are coming to light. I found these snippets where Jennifer is talking about not having body issues and finishing all of her friends food! It’s nice to hear an actress say that she is not “Hollywood” Weight obsessed and look like she’s not s well. (I put that in quotations because I see the weight issue in Hollywood as being more intense then the off camera world in so far as working in Hollywood hinges on the way that you look)

Jennifer is 5’6/5’7 and (reportedly) a size 6 (which in Hollywood earns you the stamp of curvy) and looks womanly, she has hips, breast and even meat on her arms. She looks like a real woman.

FAB! Oscars 2011

On Her Athletic Build: “I’d rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than to look great onscreen and look like a scarecrow in real life.” Flare Magazine

I am loving learning more about this young woman who is talented evidenced by her Winter’s Bone Oscar nomination and seems to have a level head on her shoulders. I hope as she becomes the new trilogy gal a la Emma Watson and Kristen Stewart she will contribute more healthy ideas not just about the body but about how to present yourself as a young woman in today’s society!! You Rock!

She has the REAL girl next door body meat in all the right places!
