Apparently, Jennifer Lawrence was remiss in eating second dinner because second dinner tasted better than first dinner ahead of the less-interesting alternative to Battle Royale about starving an entire population into submission then fattening up a select few teenagers with a pre-murder repast. The actress was literally called ‘fat’ by movie critics who whined that her body type took away from the verisimilitude of the movie because suspension of disbelief applied to murder forests but not to fat chicks. And if Lawrence counts as a ‘fat chick’ I should probably stop eating second dinner even if it’s delicious (cereal for second dinner, anyone?) because if she’s ‘obese’ I think I’ve already died of Diabeetus.
- On her body type: ‘In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach. I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors. I’m never going to starve myself for a part. I keep waiting for that one role to come along that scares me enough into dieting, and it just can’t happen. I’m invincible.’
- On being a role model: ‘I don’t want little girls to be like, ‘Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner.’ That’s something that I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.’
- On her actor boyfriend Nicholas Hoult: ‘[My boyfriend] is honestly my best friend, and hopefully I’m his best friend too. He’s my favorite person to be around and he makes me laugh harder than anybody. We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into perverted Homer Simpsons, like, ‘Oh, she’s got a nice ass.’ I never thought we’d have such different opinions on asses.’
- On her earnings: ‘Ten million dollars and I’m still living in my parents’ condo. I’ve always lived in a tiny rat-infested apartment in New York, or a little condo in L.A., or a normal house in [her native] Kentucky. I think it would be very bizarre to live in a big mansion by myself.’
