Jennifer Lawrence Reminds Everyone It's Dumb To 'Be Hungry To Make Other People Happy'

J-Law: It's Dumb To Be Hungry To Make Other People Happy

Jennifer Lawrence has been known to drop some serious knowledge about body image ("If anybody even tries to whisper the word 'diet,' I'm like, 'You can go f*ck yourself'") and having a healthy relationship with food ("I'm never going to starve myself for a part"). Thankfully for women everywhere, she's done so yet again.

The "Hunger Games" and "Silver Linings Playbook" actress shared her views about unrealistic body expectations during a Nov. 7 Q&A with Yahoo! employees.

"The world has this idea that if you don't look like an airbrushed perfect model," she said in conversation with Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer. "You have to see past it. You look how you look, you have to be comfortable. What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That's just dumb."

Lawrence also criticized the media for perpetuating unrealistic standards:

There are shows like "The Fashion Police" that are just showing these generations of young people to judge people based on all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat. They call it "fun" and they say "welcome to the real world" -- and that shouldn't be the real world, it's going to continue being the real world if we keep it that way. We have to stop treating each other like that and stop calling each other fat.

J-Law, we couldn't agree more.
