Jennifer Lawrence, Stop Hating Yourself — You Were Amazing In 'The Hunger Games'

Jennifer Lawrence The Hunger Games

Jennifer Lawrence has put herself down so much in recent interviews, I was actually concerned ‘The Hunger Games’ wasn’t going to be well done. However, it turns out she’s off her rocker — she made the movie nearly flawless!

I’m all for self-deprecation, but Jennifer Lawrence takes it to a new level. The 21-year-old The Hunger Games actress has called herself “a troll” and “a mistake,” among other terrible things in the last week on her press tour and she is need of a major self-confidence makeover!

“I’m a troll. I hate myself,” Jennifer told David Letterman. “I think the movie’s great, but their biggest mistake was me.”

If she’s a troll, what does that make the rest of us? Jeez!

A couple days later, when Ryan Seacrest asked her about her comments, she explained, “I genuinely watch myself and hate everything. I hate how I always look, how I talk, what I say, how I act, and everything about myself. It’s genuine! It’s real!”

Jennifer, I get what you’re saying — watching yourself is never fun, but you have to give yourself credit where it’s due. You did a phenomenal job in The Hunger Games. In fact, I would say without a doubt you MAKE the film. Had you not starred in the adaptation, Katniss Everdeen would never have fully come to life.

Stripped of all voiceovers and narration, you somehow managed to emulate an incredibly complex, introverted character. I could hear Katniss’s inner monologue, even though none of it was explicitly said — and that’s no easy feat for a performer.

As far as your body image is concerned, I think everyone nitpicks at themselves, but I hope you appreciate what you’re doing for girls around the world. You’re svelte and fit, but not anorexic — something that’s becoming increasingly rare for female leads these days. This film will be seen by millions of young women who will admire you for your strength of character and good values, in addition to your pretty face. That’s a rare contribution to society, indeed.

Jennifer, I hope you stop “hating” and begin to accept yourself for the positive, gorgeous role model you’ve become. Keep up the good work! You’re doing a great job, seriously.

I may be 12 but when I read the books and saw the movie I kind of felt like Katniss in a way I understand her that exactly how I feel.if I ever got to meet the whole cast I would freak Katniss and peers and rue and pretty much all of them I share connections with them in a way I thought now one would get me.

My husband took me to the Hunger Games on the opening day and i thought the character of Katniss would be another hoochie trying too hard to make herself look sexy. But I have to give Jennifer ALOT of credit. As a teen mom, i’m very insecure about myself and have alot of doubts on how i look and just about everything i do. But Jennifer’s acting was beyond incredible and she’s naturally beautiful, which made me want to be more like her and not have to live up to all the other girls.

Troll? My biggest problem when watching the movie was I kept thinking in a JFK voice: “Let there be no mistake. I would hit that”

I don’t think she does it to get people to tell her that she’s pretty/amazing, ithink she does it to keep grounded thats what i would do if i was in her position. people are giving out about this but at least she hasn’t become an ego maniac. she has been AMAZING in EVERYTHING that she has done so far so why are we talking about this when we could be taking abou her A.M.A.Z.I.N.G performance as Katniss in the Hunger Games (oscar nom for sure)

I like her, but I kind of have to roll my eyes at her. She’s obviously not a troll or horrible and I’m sure she knows that…She wouldn’t have made it this far or been nominated for an Oscar if she was. She’s taking the self-depreciation just a little too far in my opinion, like a pretty girl who says “oh, I’m so ugly” just to have her friends tell her that’s not true and that she is pretty.
