Congrats to Jennifer on ranking #2 on Huffington Post list of 11 Body Images Heroes of 2013. Good choice on this one!
2. Jennifer Lawrence
The famously outspoken “Hunger Games” star has been extremely vocal about resisting diet culture and pressure to be unnaturally thin. “If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f*ck yourself,'” Lawrence said in an interview for the November 2013 UK issue of Harper’s Bazaar. She also hit the nail on the head during a Nov. 7 Q&A with Yahoo! employees.
“The world has this idea that if you don’t look like an airbrushed perfect model,” she said in conversation with Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer. “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.”
