Jennifer Lawrence for Interview Magazine
I don’t really diet or anything. I’m miserable when I’m dieting and I like the way I look. I’m really sick of all these actresses looking like birds… I’d rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life, than look great on screen and look like a scarecrow in real life.

That it’s okay to point at people and call them ‘ugly’ or call them ‘fat.’ They call it ‘fun’ and ‘Welcome to the real word’ and it’s like, that shouldn’t be the real world."
