Jennifer Lawrence hates the word "fat."

The American Hustle star – who got into a war of words with Joan Rivers last month after criticizing shows like Fashion Police for teaching young people "the wrong values" – is letting loose in a new interview with Barbara Walters.

During an appearance on the ABC News special Barbara Walters: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013, the 23-year-old takes aim at people who bash the way women look.

"I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV," the Oscar winner says.

Miley Cyrus has learned a lot since ending her engagement to Liam Hemsworth.

"I don't think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn't change being engaged. It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years," the singer, 21, tells Barbara Walters in Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013. "But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy."

Cyrus admits she used to feel anxious about being on her own, but now, her alone time is something she relishes.

"I wait for those moments of silence, when I'm just at my house, by myself," she says.

Why the Obamas Won't Let Daughter Sasha, 12, Use Facebook

Barack and Michelle Obama: Why We Won't Let Our Daughter Sasha Go On Facebook

Originally posted 11/30/2013 07:00PM

It's a question a lot of parents of teens and preteens struggle with: how much access should their kids get to sites like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram?

President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, told Barbara Walters in a sit-down interview on ABC's 20/20 on Friday that while their oldest daughter, Malia, 15, has limited access to Facebook, her little sister, Sasha, 12, isn't old enough for that.

"I still am not a big believer in Facebook for young people ... particularly for them, because they're in the public eye," the first lady said. "Some of it's stuff they don't need to see and be a part of ... So we try to protect them from too much of the public voice."

Jenny McCarthy fits right in.

PEOPLE has the first photos of The View's newly-retooled cast of the daytime talk show for what appears to be a promising (and silly!) season ahead.

For the full cast photo, Whoopi Goldberg, 57, decides to wear her serious face, while Sherri Shepherd, 46, and Barbara Walters, 86, sport more traditional grins. The show's newest addition starts out serene, but quickly finds her goofy side in the following shots, dancing with Shepherd and posing alongside Barbara Walters in a form-fitting red dress and platform Mary Janes.

Less than a week after the departure of Elisabeth Hasselbeck from the syndicated daytime talkfest The View comes confirmation that Jenny McCarthy will succeed her when the show returns for its 17th season Sept. 9.

"YUP, I'M DOING 'THE VIEW'!" McCarthy trumpeted on her blog Monday. "When word got out that Joy [Behar] was leaving 'The View,' I knew that the timing of my desire and her departure might be serendipitous for me."

"Jenny brings us intelligence as well as warmth and humor," the show's original host and co-executive producer Barbara Walters said in a statement released by ABC Monday morning.
