'Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence Slams Scary Skinny Stars Like Lindsay Lohan & Nicole Richie

Good for you Jennifer Lawrence! The star who plays ‘Hunger Games’ Katniss, bashes the idea that it’s cool to pretend you have an eating disorder in her new interview with ‘Seventeen’ magazine!

In the April issue of Seventeen, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence not only opens up about her feelings on eating disorders, but she shares how stars like Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie affected her eating habits as a young teen — and how she doesn’t think it’s cool to set a bad example.

“I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, ‘Nobody’s eating bread—I just had to finish everyone’s burgers,’” she told the mag in the latest issue.

Jennifer also made it clear to the teen mag that she doesn’t support young girls trying to lose weight. “I’m just so sick of these young girls with diets,” the 21-year-old said. “I think it’s really important for girls to have people to look up to and to feel good about themselves.”

We love that Jennifer is so open about body image and we think she’s an amazing role model for young girls everywhere!

I’m so tired of this idiot. Look at her! She’s hardly a full-figured woman either. What about all those girls who are naturally skinny? She’s doing the same thing people did to curvy girls – she’s bashing them for their own body. A real woman is one who realizes that bodies come in all different shapes and sizes.

that picture of nicole and lindsay makes me feel so sad for lindsay. she just wanted to be accepted and have friends, and it turned out nightmarish… (feel the same when i see pics of britney with paris and such, before she crashed and burned). hope she gets her life turned around. as for this girl, it’s good she doesn’t want to be skinny… but, when she gets older and the skin doesn’t hold the fat so well without showing ripples and dimples, she might change her tune. but, hopefully she’s always healthy…
