Jennifer Lawrence: "In Hollywood, I'm obese"

Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about her weight in a new interview - insisting she will never go hungry for a role.

The 22-year-old Hunger Games star tells the new edition of U.S. Elle that she has a healthy appetite - and would never starve herself for a film role.

She also says that by Hollywood standards, she is considered 'a fat actress'.

'In Hollywood, I’m obese. I’m considered a fat actress,' Jennifer told the December issue of the publication.

'I’m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach,' she added, referring how the once-buff Kilmer has piled on the pounds over the years.

She goes on to discuss her eating habits: 'I eat like a caveman. I’ll be the only actress who doesn’t have anorexia rumors.'

And she says not even a film role could persuade her to shed weight - so won't be following in the footsteps of starlets such as Mila Kunis, Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway.

Jennifer explained: '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.'

The actress says she wants to be a good role model for her fans, sharing: '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.'
