As the star of The Hunger Games films, Jennifer Lawrence is under serious pressure. On one hand, she feels pressure from the movie industry to maintain an appearance that will ensure acting opportunities. On the other hand, she feels a responsibility to her young fans to not cave in to the media obsession with thinness.
“In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress,” Jennifer acknowledges. “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 [The Hunger Games’} Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner. That’s something I was really conscious of during training. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong — not thin and underfed.”
