Some Idiot Told Jennifer Lawrence to Lose Weight, Her Response is Priceless
The most lovable (and probably GIF-able) actress of our time has revealed the shocking truth about what it feels like to work in media when you're anything but a size zero: it sucks. The Academy Award-winning actress who's known for her roles in blockbuster movies, her fantastic interviews, and her shameless admission that she does in fact eat, has now spilled the beans about the terrible things people tell women in her industry.
In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar UK, she admitted that she was ordered to lose weight or risk losing her job if she didn't start starving herself immediately. "Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight," Lawrence said, declining to reveal who she was working for at the time. In an effort to really make sure she left this "intervention" with an eating disorder, whoever told her this also made her look at practically nude pictures of herself. "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."
When asked how she was affected by this. Jennifer Lawrence replied, "If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f**k yourself."
Three words: Get it girl.
In the interview, she also admits that the best thing about her job is "the money" and that her favorite thing to during her breaks at work is "eating chips."
The stars, they're just like us!
