Lawrence ate 'a ton' on Hunger film

Jennifer Lawrence has said she didn't diet while filming Hunger Games, because being model thin wouldn't look right.

The 21-year-old Winter's Bone star plays Katniss, a young girl fighting for her life in the new action movie, and told Glamour magazine any weight she lost during filming was natural because she did so much training.

Jennifer said: "You can't diet when you're filming a movie like The Hunger Games, running in 100 degree weather and doing all those stunts, so I was eating a ton. Anyway, Katniss is meant to be a hunter; she's meant to be scary. Kate Moss running at you with a bow and arrow isn't scary."

And the Oscar-nominated actress said she will never give up her favourite hearty breakfast to lose weight for Hollywood.

She said: "I'm lucky, I can eat whatever I like. If I wanted to get any skinnier that would mean I would have to stop eating the Ranch Breakfast - and I would always choose the Ranch Breakfast over looking skinny."
