Jennifer Lawrence graces the cover of the new South African Marie Claire, and The Hunger Games star is speaking out again about celebrity weight issues.
The actress, who’s said in the past that she’s considered “obese” by Hollywood standards, tells the magazine that she has no intention of caving to the unrealistic body image promoted in movies.
“I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life,” explains Lawrence.
As for changes she’d like to make, Lawrence says, “My New Year’s Resolution is to stand up for myself. It’s hard for me. Nobody wants to be disliked. You always want to be polite and be nice.”
She adds, “I tried to find a balance in saying what I mean and still being nice. I can’t do it. I have this ‘okay’ attitude and everything. I end up allowing myself to get walked over and resenting it.”
When it comes to her free time, Lawrence doesn’t have much interest in the party scene.
“I don’t like going out that much,” says the actress. “I’m kind of an old lady. After it’s 11, I’m like, ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch.”
