Jennifer Lawrence has a new look! She debuted a trendy pixie cut on her Facebook profile page this week.
Why the new look? Lawrence said it was just awkward and ugly before. “It grew to an awkward gross length, and I kept putting it back in a bun and I was like ‘I don’t want to do this,’ so I just cut it off,” she said. “It couldn’t get any uglier.”
“Hunger Games” fans were instantly concerned when she showed off her new style, wondering if that was the look Katniss Everdeen was going to portray in the upcoming film. “This isn’t how Katniss is going to look in the next movies – I’m wearing a wig for filming,” she said.
Lawrence recently discussed, in an interview, her body image and how she used to be called fat in school. She says the people who are saying the “air-brushed” models are beautiful, are instilling the wrong values in today’s youth.
“I was young. It was just the kind of [expletive] that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight,” Lawrence said, “They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet.”
She says battling your body image is something that everybody has to go through, and that you just have to learn to be comfortable in your own skin. “It’s something that everybody experiences,” she said. “I experienced it in school. The world has a certain idea — we see this airbrushed perfect model image. … You just have to look past it. You look how you look. And be comfortable. What are you gonna do, be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.”
