The 'Hunger Games' star says she dealt with being seen as fat early in her career and is still hurt from it until now.
Before she went on to become an Academy Award-winner for "Silver Linings Playbook", the lovely Jennifer Lawrence actually had to deal with people from the industry telling her she was fat early on in her Hollywood career, so she reveals in the November 2013 issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K. The 23-year-old actress started out as a curvy teen star in the flicks "The Poker House" and "The Burning Plain".
"I was young. It was just the kind of s**t that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn't lose a certain amount of weight," Lawrence shares about the pressures of working in Hollywood. "They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that."
Despite already hitting the big time with such box-office hits as "X-Men: First Class" and "The Hunger Games" and even winning an Oscar, the talented Lawrence says she's still very much feeling the pain of being scrutinized for her weight by Tinseltown's image-obsessed folks. "It doesn't matter what accolades you get. I know it'll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet,' I'm like, 'You can go f**k yourself," she says.
Helping to keep her mind off it is her very busy filming schedule, as she just began shooting for "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1". In the pipeline, she has "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" showing this coming November and "X-Men: Days of Future Past" coming in May next year.
