Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence will not diet for role
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence will not be dieting for a role any time soon.
Lawrence, 22, who plays the famished Katniss Everdeen in the life-or-death thriller series, told Elle magazine in an interview to be published on Nov 13 that dropping a few pounds will not be part of her script.
"I'm never going to starve myself for a part," Lawrence said, a view out of step with many in diet-obsessed Hollywood.
Lawrence's figure in "The Hunger Games" raised eyebrows of some critics, who believed the actress looked a little too healthy for a character struggling to eat.
