Jennifer Lawrence Explains What People Who Mention ‘Diet’ Can Go Do to Themselves

They can go fuck themselves, is what. Fuck themselves with her Oscar, perhaps? Sort of extrapolating on the specific type of self-fucking she had in mind, but that sounds about right. The comments came in an interview that appears in the November issue of Harper’s Bazaar, out today, because print publishing is a wormhole. Cosmopolitan brings us a few of the choice quotes.

After being shamed with pictures of her body by an industry type, probably chomping a cigar and wiping sweat off his forehead with a handkerchief made of $100 bills, she was told she’d have to undergo a little Hunger Games of her own. (Like the movie). Meaning she’d have to kill dozens of little children and teenagers, which is how one gets ahead in Hollywood. Also she’d have to starve herself, which is the other Hollywood thing.

“[People think] 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,” she said.

“‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. 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’.”

Protestations to the contrary, Jennifer Lawrence is currently skinny as fuck.
