jennifer lawrence body image

I really respect Willow Shields for emphasizing that her goal is to be healthy and not to lose weight. As a celebrity whom many girls look up to, Willow is making an important statement by not being someone who enforces the idealized standard of beauty that pervades pop culture.


“I’m Never going to starve myself for a part…That’s something I was really conscious of during training, when you’re trying to get your body to look exactly right. I was trying to get my body to look Fit and Strong - Not thin and underfed”.

( Jennifer Lawrence about Positive Body Image )

I really hope so! I hate the focus on weight and clothes in our business. I do not believe that an actress must be thin to be attractive. This sends the completely wrong message to young women.
