JLaw proud of curves

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence thinks there’s “no point” in dieting.

Since rising to fame with her role in The Hunger Games franchise the 23-year-old actress has been praised for her natural beauty. She is also envied for her figure, which she maintains with regular exercise.

“I wish I actually felt a bit more pressure to look good all the time! I don’t diet though, I just work out. For getting into shape for Catching Fire I did some yoga and other workout stuff, and some light jogging. There’s no magic pill that you can take. And if I did diet or cut one thing, that would be the only thing I’d think about all day long until I ate it, so there’s just no point,” she mused to Psychologies magazine. “I really try not to think too much about my weight, apart from when I’m getting ready for a film or doing a photoshoot. I don’t think I need to starve myself to look attractive or be appreciated for my work. I like having a few curves.”

The blonde star is known for wearing beautiful gowns at star-studded events, often opting for a Dior ensemble. Although she pulls out the stunning outfits perfectly, Jennifer is happiest when in a more relaxed number.

“That’s about the only time I really like to get dressed up,” she laughed when asked if she enjoys the red carpet palaver. “Usually if I’m on my own, I don’t wear any make-up and I prefer wearing regular clothes.”

Being the only female sibling in her household also had an effect on what Jennifer wore when she was younger.

“I grew up with two brothers, and I was never a girly-girl who liked to fuss about my hair or what I would wear to school,” she recalled. “I’m still pretty nervous when it comes to going on the red carpet and figuring out what I’m going to wear to big events.”
