Jennifer Lawrence: "Hollywood Can't Body-Shame Me, But I'm Lucky"

July 10, 2015 1 min read

Jennifer Lawrence has always been an advocate for keeping things real. She recently took a stab at Hollywood body standards! “I had a conversation with somebody about the struggles with weight in the industry—I know that’s something I talk nonstop about,” Lawrence explained to Time. “And they were saying, ‘All of the main movie stars aren’t very underweight.’ I said, ‘Yeah, because once you get to a certain place, people will hire you. They just want you to be in the movie, so they don’t care.’” This honest observation rings very true. A lot of young stars are feeling the pressure to achieve a point where they can relax a little about their weight. But this can be a dangerous and damaging time for them. It can also have an impact on their fans - young women who want emulate them. When Jennifer herself was starting out, she was under immense pressure to lose pounds in order to gain roles in movies. “Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight,” she explained. “They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet.” Now that she is at a more comfortable point in her career, the pressure is lessened. But it is hard to shake off those former criticisms. What are your thoughts on Hollywood's body standards? Share them with us!
