I fervently applaud Jennifer Lawrence for showcasing a curvy and healthy figure both in her films (see: the still for The House at the End of the Street) and on the red carpet. But in the dystopian society of The Hunger Games that has been devoured by war and poverty, it seems that our heroine’s body is nowhere near representative of the starving people of her District that were described so vividly in the book. So what wins here? Casting a young woman with a sexy, healthy body or maintaining the integrity of a literary (and now cultural) phenomenon?
Go read the entire column full of stupidity stupid, if you want to ruin your weekend. Bleghh.
This is how Jennifer Lawrence looks in The Hunger Games, by the way. Nope, I’m not getting the “too sexy” vibe, or seeing too much “womanly curves”.
Hey, what about these two guys from the same movie? They don’t look like they’re starving either. Oh, I forgot, they’re DUDES, so no body-shaming is necessary.
