Jennifer Lawrence doesn't diet

Jennifer Lawrence has said she is not motivated to work out - even if she has to appear almost naked on screen.

The 23-year-old Hunger Games star told the December issue of InStyle that she never dieted in preparation for her film roles.

"Nothing can motivate me," she said.

While preparing to go almost naked for her role in X-Men, she said: "I thought, 'Oh definitely, I'll work out and diet.' But nope. Not me!"

MailOnline quoted the actress as telling the mag: "During Hunger Games, when I was eating ungodly amounts, I used to tell myself, 'Stop eating, people are going to see this. This movie is going to be around forever,'" she said.

"But nope! I was like, I still want candy and I still want a hot dog!"

Jennifer, who has been sporting a new pixie cut, told InStyle that growing up with two brothers stopped her obsessing over her figure.

"My brothers and I would scream at each other and we'd be like, 'I hate you! You're stupid! You're ugly!' And then five minutes later it would be, 'I love you.'

"I got thrown down stairs, I got punched, It's not like I had a superior childhood because I had brothers - I was crying just as much," she said.

Jennifer, who is rumoured to be back with her ex Nicholas Hoult, added: "Girls are so imaginative, so good at getting to the warped place and really just taking someone apart surgically. A girl will tell you: 'Your arms are flabby'."
