Is Jennifer Lawrence Too Fat To Play Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games? Critics Have Chimed in On Jennifer Lawrence's Weight
Jennifer Lawrence is under the microscope thanks to her role in the Hunger Games. Some fans are suggesting that the lanky blonde is too fat for the Hunger Games.
Some critics have said that Lawrence is not thin enough to play a character that was genuinely hungry.
It's not just internet troll who have questioned whether Jennifer Lawrence was too fat for the Hunger Games. The New York Times and Hollywood Reporter have made references to Jennifer Lawrence's weight.
Lawrence herself has admitted that she had to whip herself into shape to play the role of Katniss.
Slate has a nice breakdown of how stupid the Jennifer Lawrence weight comments are. The article notes that no one has seemed to criticize co-star Liam Hemsworth's hulking frame, "even though his character in The Hunger Games occupies the same food-strapped world as Katniss."
