In case you’ve forgotten, America’s cool girlfriend Jennifer Lawrence loves to eat. If we went inside JLaw’s head, Inside Out-style, we’d see that she had only one Island of Personality, and it would be a massive pile of chicken wings floating on a fart cloud, surrounded by a moat of barbecue sauce. And JLaw says that she’s earned it. During the San Diego Comic-Con panel for The Hunger Games: Whatever, The Last One on Thursday, JLaw talked about how lucky she is to have gotten to the point in her career where she doesn’t have to worry about anyone telling her to switch from pizza to celery-flavored water because she’s growing a major “stuffed crust ass.”
“I had a conversation with somebody about the struggles with weight in the industry – I know that’s something I talk nonstop about. And they were saying, ‘All of the main movie stars aren’t very underweight.’ I said, ‘Yeah, because once you get to a certain place [in your career], people will hire you. They just want you to be in the movie, so they don’t care.’ It’s more about the struggle for the actors and actresses who haven’t made it to a certain place.”
But when one mouth opens, another closes (what? I don’t know). JLaw also wants you to know that she’s trying to be less-JLaw:
“I’m starting this new thing: I’ve tried to develop a filter. This could blow people’s hair back in a good way, or it could be my last time at Comic-Con.”
Noooooo! What is Jennifer Lawrence without her signature chronic word diarrhea? Maybe she’s self-censoring her words in preparation for that possible Hawaiian family vacation she’s going on with Gwyneth Paltrow. I can imagine training your mouth not hiss out a sarcastic “Bitch, I’M GOOD” every time you’re offered a snack platter of organic pink lemon wedges would take weeks of practice.
Here’s more of Jennifer “2 Successful 2 Struggle” Lawrence at the Comic-Con Hunger Games panel, as well as the X-Men: Apocalypse panel on Saturday.
