She’s gorgeous, talented and very successful, but Jennifer Lawrence still gets questioned about her weight. The Hunger Games beauty stuns on the cover of the November issue of the UK edition of Harper’s Bazaar magazine. In the accompanying interview, she talks about being called “fat” in her younger years — and how people still call her that word to this day. “[Someone brought it up recently]. They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt,” she says. “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.’”

J-Law, 23, reveals that the industry was tough on her as a kid. “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,” she shares. There’s one instance that she’ll never forget.

But the beauty persevered and has become a role model to young girls around the world for her positive take on body image. She also reveals to Harper’s that a love for food makes her job easier.
Jennifer Lawrence Says Bradley Cooper Is a Bad Kisser “My bodyguard Gilbert, right before they call ‘action,’ I’m like, ‘If there aren’t Cheez-Its here by the time they call ‘cut’, just go home.’ And he’ll start running,” the beauty shares.
