Jennifer Lawrence covers the December issue of Elle Magazine. The 22-year-old actress opens up about her weight in the interview, saying by Hollywood standards, she’d be considered “a fat actress”.
She says, “In Hollywood, I’m obsese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.” (Okay, zing!)
She admits, “I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors.”
She says she will never be convinced to starve herself for a role. “I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen. I’m invincible.”
She wants to be a good role model for her fans. “I don’t want little girls to be like, “Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner.””
“That’s something that I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.”
Elsewhere during the interview, Lawrence lifts the lid on her relationship with her British actor boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.
She gushed: ‘[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody.’
Jennifer goes on: ‘We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, “Oh, she’s got a nice ass.” I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.’
Lawrence also admits to having something of a foot-in-mouth syndrome.
‘I never know what’s going to come out of my mouth, and it’s horrible. I don’t find it positive in any way.
‘When I get older, I’ll be more mature and poised. And I’ll have control over my mouth.
‘One day, I’m going to grow up…When we leave [the interview] I’m going to have a knot in my stomach. I’m going to be like, “Oh, did I say something wrong? I’m going to get in trouble!”‘
Jennifer also appears to reveal how much she is worth – but says she still lives modestly.
‘Ten million dollars and I’m still living in my parents’ condo,’ she tells the fashion magazine.
‘I’ve always lived in a tiny rat-infested apartment in New York, or a little condo in LA, or a normal house in Kentucky. I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself.’
I really love Jennifer. I like her honesty. I think she’s refreshing. She’s great.
Except her hair on the cover. Her hair is quite bad. But that’s cosmetic.
