Jennifer Lawrence has three words for the haters: "Screw those people."

The Oscar-winning actress stopped by Yahoo for a Q&A about the upcoming Hunger Games film, and ended up getting candid about today's beauty standards.


It was a father's question — acting as a stand-in for his teenage daughter — about Hollywood's critical nature and pressure for girl's to look a certain way that got Lawrence all riled up.

Her advice to girls?

"You look like you look, and be comfortable. What are you going to do be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That's just dumb."

Amen, J-Law.

Lawrence has faced body image backlash herself, with critics and fans calling her too curvy to play Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games trilogy.

She also expressed anger that the press condones calling others fat, and adds, "It's disappointing the media keeps it alive and fuels that fire, because I love to eat."

Once again, Lawrence proves why she has such a stellar reputation as a positive, kick-ass female role model.
