The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence gives a particularly revealing interview as British Vogue's November cover girl, where she addresses the fact that she's considered curvy by Hollywood's stick-thin standards.
Her weight was even shamelessly talked about in several reviews for The Hunger Games, where some critics deemed Jennifer's "well-fed" body too big to accurately portray the starving Katniss.
"I'm so tired of the lollipops," Jennifer tells Vogue of the rail-thin actresses in Hollywood, adding, "I mean, if I looked like that I wouldn't be tired of it, obviously. But it's hilarious, the way I'm supposedly the overweight one? Like, they got me at the movies yesterday and the caption read something like 'Curvy star cannot wait to dig into tub of popcorn.' I mean, C'mon!"
Jennifer has said that she doesn't diet in past interviews, telling Glamour magazine in April, "I don't diet. I do exercise! But I don't diet. You can't work when you're hungry, you know?"
And to Jennifer's credit, she doesn't let the haters get her down, remaining down-to-earth as ever about the sensitive topic.
"I'm just a normal girl who likes to eat," she tells Vogue bluntly.
