If you've watched "The Hunger Games" you know the star of the film Jennifer Lawrence is anything but fat but in a recent interview with Elle the blonde actress admits by Hollywood standards she's considered obese.
"In Hollywood, I'm obese. I'm considered a fat actress. I eat like a caveman. I'll be the only actress who doesn't have anorexia rumors," she said. The 22-year-old actress has been busy on the big screen playing her biggest role yet as Katniss Everdeen.
In 2013 she'll star in "Serena," "Catching Fire," and "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Her athletic, toned body is perfect for the role of an upcoming female action star. We'd much rather see girls looking healthy and fit than starved and skinny in Hollywood. Here are other babes in Hollywood defying the industry's body standards.
MC's weight has gone up and down over the past decade but she finally seems to be at a size that makes her happy after becoming a spokesperson for Jenny Craig. The songstress was always a skinny girl during the height of her career in the '90s but as a mom of twins and as a veteran diva it appears Mariah no longer cares about being stick thin.
We're used to seeing Lady Gaga in next to nothing while showing off her slender body. The pop star has gained weight recently and isn't apologizing for becoming a bigger size.
"I thought, 'well I don't really care if they think I'm fat', because, quite honestly, I did gain about 30 pounds," she said. Does Gaga look better with more curves?
Kate Upton earned a reputation for being funny and sexy after dancing to "Dougie" at a sports game and then later showing us all how to do the "Cat Daddy." The plus-sized model isn't afraid to show off her sexy curves but some have had issues with the Sports Illustrated stunner.
Earlier this year an anonymous blogger got into a bit of a hot mess after calling Kate a "fat piggie" and criticizing her body extensively. Luckily, several people in the industry rose to Kate's defense. It's nice to see an instance where a woman with a normal-sized body is defended.
What do you think about beautiful women in Hollywood being criticized and thinking they're obese for being an average body size? Sound off!
