'Hunger Games' star Jennifer Lawrence thinks she's 'considered a fat actress' in Hollywood

By Gina DiFalco,

Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence burst out on to the Hollywood scene after her role in Winter’s Bone, which she got an Oscar nomination for.

The actress, 22, is sharing her opinion what people think of her, saying although she doesn’t think she’s the skinniest actress in the business, she doesn’t mind it.

"In Hollywood, I'm obese," she told Elle magazine. "I'm considered a fat actress. "I'm Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach."

But she was quick to add, "I'm never going to starve myself for a part...I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner'...I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong—not thin and underfed."

Lawrence also talked to Elle about her boyfriend, British actor Nicholas Hoult, E! Online reports.

"[He] is honestly my best friend too," she said. "He's my favorite person to be around and makes me laugh harder than anybody. We can eat Cheetos and watch beach volleyball and we turn into two perverted Homer Simpsons, like, 'Oh, she's got a nice ass.' I never thought we'd have such different opinions on asses."
