This is a classic example of the type of article I hate.
Personally I am not sold on Jennifer Lawrence. I can’t tell whether she is a breath of fresh air in the movie industry or a phenomenal PR campaign.
Either way she is doing something good. She is attacking the fat shaming culture in the media and she is encouraging her young fans to avoid extreme, unhealthy diets.
If you ask Jennifer Lawrence that very same question, ‘is she too fat?’ you will get a gold mine of quotes that are destined to go viral.
‘The world has this idea that if you don’t look like an airbrushed perfect model. You have to see past it. You look how you look, you have to be comfortable,’
‘What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.’
‘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.’
This is all because she is happy in her own skin. The only person the question ‘is Jennifer Lawrence too fat’ should matter to, is Jennifer Lawrence, and the comfort in her own body she shows is a powerful message.
The only person who should care about what you look like is you.
If you are happy and healthy- incredible.
If you are not, work you arse off until you are.
There is no substitute for health and happiness that can compare.
If you need that kick, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t just sit around and expect things to change.
If not, well done. it feels amazing doesn’t it! Go rub it in someone’s face.
Stay happy guys,
