"In Hollywood, I'm obese," Lawrence said. "I'm considered a fat actress. I'm Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach."

"I'm never going to starve myself for a part. I don't want little girls to be like, 'Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I'm going to skip dinner'. I was trying to get my body to look fit and strong - not thin and underfed."

She went on to joke that she will "be the only actress who doesn't have anorexia rumours".
