I mentioned this in Lucy's post below about some people getting their knickers in a twist over Rue and Cinna being played by black actors.

Oh for crying out loud!! How totally ridiculous can people get????? *banging head on keyboard*

First of all ... let me address this lovely dimwitted comment...
"A few years ago Ms. Lawrence might have looked hungry enough to play Katniss, but now, at 21, her seductive, womanly figure makes a bad fit for a dystopian fantasy about a people starved into submission," writes New York Times critic Manohla Dargis.

Ok, lady, you should know your character before you venture such silliness! In the first place, Katniss isn't "starved into submission... she's spent the last few years breaking the law in order to feed her family and herself! So no, she isn't going to look like the majority of the Seam's occupants, who have to try to exist solely on their tesserae. While she even says there are nights they go to bed hungry, she and her mother and sister are not starved to the point of being emaciated! And even if she was supposed to be rail thin,
