Jennifer Lawrence calls herself “fat” for Hollywood, but is proud of her body (as she should be!) Here’s something to refresh your memory, in case you don’t remember this comment of hers. From EW.com:
In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress. I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach.
Oh, girl, that’s mean. But she may not be saying about this about herself if not for idiots like Manohla Dargis of The New York Times who said,
A few years ago Ms. Lawrence might have looked hungry enough to play Katniss, but now, at 21, her seductive, womanly figure makes a bad fit for a dystopian fantasy about a people starved into submission.
Really sorry she didn’t Christian Bale it for you (talkin’ bout The Machinist). Also in the books Katniss was described as strong despite the lack of food because she would illegally hunt everyday for more food and –oh my God, listen to me, I’m gonna stop right here, I am NOT going to be the person who gets really into defending The Hunger Games.
The super cool Jeffrey Wells of Hollwood Elsewhere said she was “too big” for her male costar, adding,
She’s a fairly tall, big-boned lady (I’ve been in a hotel room with her) […]
Cool, now let’s ask Jennifer Lawrence what she thought of you in that hotel room.
Then we have the awesome Justin Chang of Variety who said,
Hunger, the one constant in Katniss’ hard-scrabble life, barely even seems to register.
This is a snarky way of saying, “Fatass.” And it’s all so ridiculous because she used to model for Abercrombie & Fitch so how fat could she really be, considering we know how they feel about fat people?
What’s my damn point in sharing all of this? Because the lovely Lawrence clearly listened to this bullshit and lost all of her GROSS DISGUSTING FAT to slim down to play Mystique for the new X-Men movie.
If anything her former Hunger Games physique is perfect for Mystique, as the character is a mighty SUPER HERO. Then again, I get why Ms. Lawrence would feel pressure to slim down as her goddamn costume is PRACTICALLY NOTHING.
Look, I get it: this is how the Mystique character looks. Mystique is blue. But this is f-cking bullshit. In the comic book, Mystique actually wear clothes, and Hollywood can make the decision to say, hey, this is a reboot, let’s try something different, let’s not have our lead actress be practically naked in this one (Rebecca Romijn being the first naked Mystique). You never see male stars in ANYTHING like this. Like why don’t we see Spider-Man rocking a bulge in his skintight outfit but we practically see Jennifer Lawrence’s vagina?
You’re all going to argue with me and tell me I’m wrong anyway, so go for it.
Fun tidbit: January Jones was not invited back to reprise her character of Emma Frost for this film, and rumor is it’s because she had an affair with the director, Bryan Singer. Oh, and look, they managed to figure out a way to get her in sexy underwear for her role:
I’m sure it was crucial for the story.
I’ll get this started for you: “You’re taking this way too seriously” “You’re oversensitive” “It’s just a movie” “You’re probably ugly and/or jealous” “Ugh, why does everyone have to make everything a big deal” “I come here for celebrity gossip not for stuff like this I’m leaving” etc etc.
