Well, I never called her fat. And none of you all called her fat. However, many, many of those who reviewed The Hunger Games said Jennifer Lawrence’s ‘lingering baby fat,’ or ‘big bones,’ or whatever, distracted from the facade of starvation that’s supposed to frame the primary story arc because ribs are for fatties. Fatty. I watched the movie; her body didn’t distract. But then, I’d sell every one of you into slavery for her body type. I would. And now a source tells the Chicago Sun-Times Lawrence heard about the body-snarking and remains indignant about the idea of starving or being made to appear emaciated even if the role calls for it: ‘Jennifer told me, ‘This is hilarious. First, people say how so many actresses in Hollywood look anorexic, and now they are criticizing me for looking normal.’ Thin body images are too often adopted by young girls and women thanks to what they are constantly being shown as being attractive.’
