Jennifer Lawrence has revealed she was told to lose weight and was called “fat” by an industry insider.
The Oscar-winning actress told Harper’s Bazaar: “I was young. It was just the kind of **** 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.”
Lawrence continued: “They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked and told me to use them as motivation for my diet.”
The comments still hurt the Hunger Games star despite her success: “[People think] that because of the way my career has gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get.”
Lawrence added: “I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’ I’m like, ‘You can go **** yourself’.”
