This is What Happens When You Tell Jennifer Lawrence to Lose Weight

Award-winning actress robustly responds to industry criticism regarding her weight

No word is thrown around more carelessly or indefinitely in Hollywood than "fat." In Harper's Bazaar's November issue, Jennifer Lawrence told the UK magazine that her weight has been an issue of contention in the showbiz industry.

Forget the fact that she emerged as the second-youngest Best Actress winner of an Academy Award (Silver Linings Playbook, 2012), and the highest-grossing action heroine of all time (The Hunger Games, 2012) in the same year, at only age 23. She's "fat," and she'll risk losing future opportunities if she doesn't first "lose a certain amount of weight." Um, right.

"It was just the kind of sh*t that actresses have to go through," Jennifer said -- that is, the crap of an industry that's exceptional at finding fault where there is none. "They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet," she added.

In reality, it's early in JLaw's career, and "the most talented young actress in America," according to Rolling Stone, has as much professional success as she has men drooling over her -- without having to diet -- not to mention all the women who look up to her and want to be her BFF.

Truth is, she looks like a woman who's conscious of her health and feels good in her own skin. Look at her! Exactly where could she shed the pounds? Her face is filled with color and she carries herself with a confidence that rises well above Hollywood's weight obession. She is a mega babe!

"If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet,' I'm like, 'You can go f**k yourself,'" she summed up. That's the vibrant, foulmouthed warrior we know and love. Better than beautiful, Jennifer is realistic in both image and attitude.
