7 Times Jennifer Lawrence Got Candid About Body Image

The Oscar-winning actress speaks out on her experiences with self-esteem and fat shaming in Hollywood

ON SURVIVING CRITICISM

"I was young. It was just the kind of s--- 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. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. [Someone brought that up recently.] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn't still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I'm above it all. 'You really still care about that?' Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn't matter what accolades you get. I know it'll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet,' I'm like, 'You can go f--- yourself.'"
