Jennifer Lawrence: Being called ‘fat’ still bothers me

Jennifer Lawrence may be one of the most well-like stars in young Hollywood, but the 23-year-old actress said she still gets furious when she recalls being called fat earlier in her career.

The “Hunger Games” star told Haper’s Bazaar’s U.K. edition that the insult hurt. 

"I was young. It was just the kind of s**t that actresses have to go through," she told the magazine. "Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn't lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet."

And no, she’s not over it, she said.

"They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I'm above it all. 'You really still care about that?' Yeah. I was a little girl," she explained. "I was hurt. It doesn't matter what accolades you get. I know it'll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet', I'm like, 'You can go f**k yourself.'"

Lawrence revealed that when she's on the set of the “Hunger Games” she snacks on Cheez-Its.
