Being a role model comes first for Jennifer Lawrence.
In a new interview with ELLE magazine, the Hunger Games star opens up about her relationship with boyfriend Nicholas Hoult — and her body.
"In Hollywood, I'm obese," she reveals. "I'm considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.”
Though that couldn’t be further from the truth, the 22-year-old says she’ll never go hungry for Hollywood — especially because she knows the influence she has on her young female fans.
"I'm never going to starve myself for a part...I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss [the role she plays in Hunger Games], so I'm going to skip dinner'...I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong [for the role] — not thin and underfed," she says.
And it seems her relationship with Nicholas helps keep her grounded.
“[He] is honestly my best friend too,” Jennifer, who’s currently filming The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, shares. “He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody.”
“We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass,’” she adds. “I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.”
If there’s an actress young women should idolize, it seems Jennifer fits the role.
