Jennifer Lawrence for Marie Claire UK

Posted on June 10, 2011

Current X-Men: First Class star Jennifer Lawrence poses and pouts for Marie Claire UK and proves to us that the girl has got it going on.

Jennifer Lawrence featured in the July 2011 issue of Marie Claire UK

“I understand I’m an actress and I have a job and I have to be in a certain shape, and I’m fine with that. But I do want the stick-thin trend to end. I like eating so I didn’t really diet during the Oscars. In fact I needed to go on a diet afterwards!”

Sweetie, can we give you a little advice? No? Well, that’s never stopped us. It’s like this: like it or not, you dove headfirst into the machinery of what can be collectively referred to as the Image Factory; that melange of movies, internet, magazines, television, recording industry, fashion, beauty products, and advertising that determines what is pretty and what is not in modern culture. You were granted this opportunity to dive right in because you fulfill the requirements: you are young, white, thin, and blonde with a pretty face. You get to move to the head of the class, like so many young, thin, pretty blondes before you. For that, you are going to reap benefits like you wouldn’t believe. Congratulations. Now shut up about how you don’t diet and how you “want the stick-thin trend to end.” There are literally dozens, if not hundreds of reasons as to why things are the way they are and we wouldn’t dream of laying any of this on your shoulders. You didn’t create the standard; you’re only benefitting from it and that’s fine. But really. Shut the fuck up about it. You can’t indulge in something and embody something while at the same time pretending to criticize it. You look amazingly disingenuous when you do so.

But cheer up! You don’t get to challenge the beauty paradigm, so you might as well enjoy the fact that you rock it, amirite?

A very pretty, totally summer kind of editorial. We can practically taste the lemonade from here. What impresses us how different she can look (check her out here on the cover of Flare) and how well she holds the camera’s attention.

      I’m not a fan of the Dior dress on her– it makes her looks as long as a snake in all the wrong ways. The rest is pretty, and makes me want to go hang around in meadows. Looking fabulous, of course.

      • http://twitter.com/delysia_lafosse Delysia LaFosse

        Agreed. Also, I think her boobs are too big to go braless in a halter dress – especially a floaty, etherial one like that (and I say that as someone who is similarly thin with big boobs – sadly without the rest of the tall goddess thing, though).

        She’s very pretty, but her face looks like she worked really hard to maintain the same expression throughout the entire shoot.

      yeah, I am pretty tired of actresses either claiming that they are somehow bucking the standard by not being “stick thin” when they actually are; or claiming that they just LOVE eating nothing but spinach and avocado and don’t put any effort into maintaining their figure.  It’s bullshit and it makes it seem like all you have to do to be extremely thin is to be “healthy,” when for most people, being skinny requires very close attention to calories.  but yes, beautiful editorial.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1046681022 Paula Berman

        She did not say she is bucking the trend, nor that she loves dieting, nor that she doesn’t put any effort into staying thin.  She said she *wishes* she didn’t have to be stick-thin, and that when she stopped dieting during the Oscars, she had to make up for it later.  She sounds like a normal woman, who overindulged on food during a special season and is now paying for it, regretting that she has to worry so much about her shape but realizing it’s part of the job.  I don’t see what she said that’s so offensive.

        • Anonymous

          but she often says that she’s not stick thin.  And I’ve seen her in skintight dresses and in a photoshoot where she was in a bra and panties when she was claiming that she wasn’t stick thin or dieting…and she looked stick-thin to me.  Maybe I’m crazy, but she just doesn’t look any bigger, even at her “highest” weigh, than the average hollywood actress, except that she has bigger boobs.  I might be wrong, but it seems like a sort of ploy to appear more sympathetic to the average woman to say “I’m the fat one!”  I think it just bugs me because she has never looked bigger than the average actress to me, but every interview I’ve seen of hers she says that she is.  that’s all.  not offensive, just annoying.  and you’re certainly free to disagree with me, I don’t hate her or anything!

      Was she asked the diet question or did she just volunteer to give us that information?

    • Jennifer Hofstetter

      Now hold on there, Misters T and Lo.  She said she didn’t diet DURING THE OSCARS, but DID afterwards, presumably for a role.  I think she’s just being honest.  You criticize other celebrities for being disingenuous when they say they eat whatever they want, when clearly that’s physically impossible, and then criticize this celebrity for calling out the industry like it is.  She says she understands that it’s her job to look a certain way so she’ll do it, but she wishes that trend would end.  I don’t see anything taboo or rude or disingenuous at all about what she said.

      Other than that, beautiful girl, beautiful clothes, etc.

        I agree with a good bit of what you said. And actually it is physically possible for some people to eat whatever they want and not have to worry too much as far as weight gain. I’m related to 3 people who are just like that. But I know that those types are few and far between. But you’re right. Just because a celebrity is genetically on the thinner side or on the thinner side through dieting, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they have to enjoy the thin trend. But she knows it’s what she has to do if she wants to stay in the buisness that she enjoys. I’m sure there are a good number of celebrities who love acting but wish they could do without the shallow hollywood pressures but they just choose to stick it out. In which case maybe they should move to the stage. Maybe they’re a little less strict, I’m not sure. For me it’s sort of similar to when some celebrities complain about their private life being invaded. I feel sympathy for them sometimes but I also think to myself that as much as they don’t like it, it is something that they signed up for when they chose this particular profession. It’s unfortunate but true.

          I agree with both of you. The pressure these women are under to look a certain way is obscene. If you want to be an actress, you don’t just walk away from it because of those pressures, do you? I imagine most aspiring actresses don’t really know what they’re walking into, despite all the evidence around them. It’s all very glamorous from the outside.

          Anyway, I see nothing disingenuous in what Ms. Lawrence said. And she’s not skin and bones yet. Let’s hope she keeps it that way.

          This is the first time I’ve had a good look at her. She’s stunning. I’m not a big fan of the Dior dress, but everything else is lovely, and she looks lovely in it.

      • http://www.facebook.com/mary.nease Mary Nease

        She probably did diet for a role- she’s playing Katniss in The Hunger Games movie, a character that is half-starved through most of the book.

      • ramon_the_race_car_driver

        I agree with JHofst’s post above. 

        Your (T and Lo) critique is a bit harsh.  If anything, isn’t Jennifer L. just being consistent with her views on the matter? 

        If it were directed at Marie Claire, the splenetic “advice” your giving might actually be constructive.  After all, Jennifer isn’t the one Photoshopping her own editorial photos or drafting the interview questions to later ask herself.  If every magazine/television interviewer insists on pressing her to comment on the same topic over and over, what more can she do than say the right/responsible thing?  

        You two may be tired of hearing her say the same thing, but that doesn’t make it any less important when she does.

      Eh’ she’s really not ana thin so I give the dieting comment a pass just this once. If it becomes her mantra, then I’ll have an issue. I like her. She does have a chameleon quality that comes through in print & in her movie roles.

    • Mary Lauer

      I noticed an odd similarity between this and the Elle Fanning editorial. If this had been Elle, it would have been WAY over the top Pretty Baby … at least they didn’t do this to her! (And yes, oddly enough the Elle one was less ethereal … maybe I just looked at them too closely together?

        what evidence do you have that she’s stupid?  Also, given the ’89 in your name, I’ll assume it may be your birth year, in which case, you’re at most a year older, if not the same age as her.  But that’s alright, keep throwing out aimless judgements.

      Aww hell, if the so called “stick thin” trend ended she’d be out of a job, so she better hope it keeps on.
      She does make an excellent model though. Kind of like the girls Ralph Lauren used to use back in the Prairie days.

      Gorgeous. And yes, add me to those who want to punch any celebrity who says “blah blah I don’t diet”. Don’t care if its for a role or not. When you are speaking to a nation/world consisting of lots of women who DO desperately diet, it’s annoying.

        I thought the same thing, but we do have to remember that there’s some editor deciding on which of 100 or so shots go in the magazine – maybe they were looking for that “wistful, ethereal, earthy” thing and killed anything where she was smiling.

      Chick skinned a squirrel in her Oscar nominated film.   If a gorgeous, athletic 20 year old with actual acting ability wants to  rage against the machine that wants her to starve herself or throw up on the hour, more power to her.  Hopefully she won’t end up looking like the “new and improved” Megan Fox in a few years.

    • Anonymous

      I like it overall, but I wish there was a different expression.  Save for one or two photos, her face is exactly the same.

    • http://www.facebook.com/k80080 Katy Richardson

      Now wait a minute, her comment was not the same as “I eat whatever I want and I’m super thin anyway!  LUCKY ME!”  She said that when she’s not playing a role, like during Oscar season, she doesn’t diet but she does after.  Also, compare her to every other female in X-Men and she comes across as larger.  She’s not fat in the slightest but she is is taller and curvier and more rounded, not Christina Hendricks curvy but she is certainly not a waif.  I think she is beautiful and is actually bringing a different body-type to the forefront.

      Also, I have a massive girlcrush on her and can’t wait for The Hunger Games.

      • Anonymous

        Yes. Finally someone who gets what she is saying. JLa is NOT stick thin. What Megan Fox did to herself because some director said she needed to lose weight – that’s stick thin. And it is a trend that has established itself as normal. 

        In print (maybe through photoshopping) she looks slimmer but on screen, she does read a tich shall we say “rounded” and she is not as stick thin as she could be, as stick thin as probably some of her handlers are pushing her to be. So give the girl her credit. She’s keeping things tight but she is bucking the trend and kudos to her for being able to get work while being a tich over what people are used to seeing from leading ladies.

      I think she looks beautiful, but she’s not giving much in terms of face. She has almost the same expression in every photo.

    • Meredith Wiggins

      I have to disagree with your comments, TLO – at least to an extent.  No one is denying she’s thin.  She’s not even denying she’s thin.  But she’s certainly not pin-thin in the way a lot of actresses are; for example, her calves and her thighs aren’t the same width.  I saw X-Men: First Class the other night, and her character wore lots of tiny little skirts and dresses – and I remember being pleasantly surprised by how voluptuous her legs were, at least in comparison to the other women on-screen.  She looked markedly heavier than the other young, “sexy” actresses in the movie – not heavy, by any means, but heavier.  I think it’s totally legitimate for her to say that she understands there’s a standard she has to live up to for her job, but that she wishes that standard would change.

        I noticed this as well when I watched the film. I liked that she had some meat on her, as it were. For example, when January Jones would come on screen I honestly thought she looked sort of painfully thin, especially around the waist. But when Jennifer Lawrence came on the screen, it was a breath of fresh air really.

        • MilaXX

          I know it was her character, but January looked like a fem-bot in X-men.

      Ordinarily, I’d be in complete agreement. Except that in this case, I didn’t even recognise the model – even after you’d named her. That’s Jennifer Lawrence? Mystique Jennifer? That gorgeous girl from X-Men? I Googled her to be certain.

      See, I took my nine-year-old daughter to see that film (*).  And I don’t know how to describe how relieved I was to watch a Superhero with a side-order of Teen Romance film which featured a young girl who was authentically kick-ass. This? This is a healthy young woman.   And in the era of Twilight and its cousins, that’s remarkable … and really worth something to me.  She’s clearly carved away a lot of weight since X-Men, and that’s an awful shame…  but given the way the industry works even these days, it’s probably inevitable… and I think it’s reasonable that she’s acknowledging that.

      (*) Why yes, yes I did choke on my popcorn when the “Go fuck yourself” line came out of nowhere. :)

      I agree, i was pleased to see that she was more of an average weight in X-men.  I see nothing unbelievable about her saying that she doesn’t diet during oscars, if you’ve watched her interviews and how her personality is, it isn’t that unbelievable.  She’s much more of a laid back person, though she has said that she does like being made-up and such with dresses, hair, make up.  She was being pretty straight forward in this interview, saying nothing out of line really.  She doesn’t diet during oscars, will for a role, and like anyone, wishes the skinny craze of the industry these days would end.  She didn’t necessarily say it was wrong to lose weight for a role, and she isn’t claiming that she wouldn’t want to or be willing to.  Telling her to shut the * up is ridiculous, and really who is anyone to act like they know who she is and if she means what she’s saying?

    • Anonymous

      I’m a little bothered at criticizing and telling a girl to “shut the fuck up” because she’s a) criticizing the sexist standards of her industry b) no doubt required or heavily encouraged to do press, including editorials (due to how fucked up her industry is) to promote her films. So if she wants to get hired, she has to play along, but if she points out how fucked up that is, she’s a disingenuous bitch? Ugh.

      Not even getting into the fact that she broke into the scene with Winter’s Bone, a pretty “un-glamorous” role where she wasn’t forced to be prettied up to practice her craft, and one that is few and far between for women. Fuck a girl because she wants something better for herself and industry, amiright? What an ungrateful bitch.

    • Alyssa

      she’s lost weight for her role of katniss in ‘hunger games’ – a girl who is highly active within the ‘games’ and who’s character practically starves in the book.  she didn’t lose weight for no reason.

    • Anonymous

      Her comments didn’t bug me. Any woman in Hollywood who wants the “stick-thin trend to end” is okay by me. I hope she feels that way as she ages and her youthful metabolism isn’t her best friend. It would be awesome if she can maintain her attitude toward her body as she matures in Hollywood.

      She looks very pretty here, but that D&G is swallowing her up.

      She looks kind of dead in the eyes in every shot. There’s no personality. I’m not a fan in general of the wispy blonde, but these shots really left me cold. Also, the farther down I scrolled, the more these photos reminded me of a Massengill ad from 1974.

    • Anonymous

      This girl can act but she needs more lessons to be a decent model. Others haven’t been given a pass for using the same look (complete with partially open mouth) in all shots and neither should she. The dresses show an odd emphasis on her body. The Dior makes her look like elastic woman (a la The Incredibles) and the D&G mumu make it look like she’s got DDD breasts; the Donna Karan DD breasts. Yet in other shots, she looks normal (and yes, healthy).

      Re: the weight thing. I”m thinking this is a publicist’s trick to get her noticed in print. She’s pretty, blonde, thin and a rising star. Something (god forbid they should focus on her talent) has to set her apart.

      Actually, my boyfriend and I just went to see X-Men and we were wondering which crossroads devil she had to sell her soul to to be the one star in Hollywood who DOES look like she eats solid food. It is nice and we would like to see more of it. Of course she’s slender – she has a genuinely athletic body and hella genes. But she is right to draw a comparison between her and, say, Amanda Seyfried – another young, blonde, talented, pretty white actress that looks like a drowned kitten half the time.

      This is the girl they picked to star in the Hunger Games?  As a literary character who is described as “dark haired, dark eyed, olive skinned?”  
      WAY TO PICK A BLUE EYED, BLONDE HAIRED MANNEQUIN, HOLLYWOOD.

      • Alyssa

        “Hollywood” didn’t necessarily choose her.  To be precise, Suzanne Collins, the AUTHOR of the trilogy, chose her, approved of her.  Saw the persona of Katniss in her.  And if you’ve read the books, and also read the quote about her during training with her bow & arrow for Katniss that stated that after her trainer bad-mouthing her for basically sucking, she shot it perfectly, and when asked why, she said ‘you pissed me off!’ – you’d understand EXACTLY why she’s been chosen as Katniss.  Not to mention her natural demeanor during interviews in real life is much like that of Katniss.  People have been chosen for roles outside the original description many times.  Have you seen the picture of her as Katniss?  It isn’t that hard to give an actress an ‘olive skin tone’, nor does she look unnatural with dark hair.  As for the dark eyes… check again, Katniss has grey eyes. 

        Another example?  Try both Peeta & Gale’s actors that were chosen.  Josh Hutcherson is hardly an ashy blonde that Peeta is, and he was selected.  I’m sure it wasn’t because “hollywood” wanted a “dark-haired” boy to play Peeta.  They chose him for his acting, and obviously can adjust his hair to match.

        Chill. Out.  Oh, and get your facts straight.

        • http://twitter.com/mariacarson Maria Carson

          I know that a lot of people were upset about the Hunger Games casting because when reading the books, the description of Kantiss read like someone who is not blonde and pale, but instead someone who is olive skinned with dark hair. Casting a White person instead of giving that really rare thing – a role for a young, female, person of color that could potentially lead to a lot more fame, etc. to a young actor of color is definitely problematic. And if you look at the people they were considering for the role (at least listed on the wikipedia page) they all are White, and most are blonde and very fair. Not one of them appears to be olive skinned with black hair. So no, I don’t think you can really say it was a colorblind competition / casting and Jennifer just happened to get it because she was the best fit for Katniss in the whole world. She was the best out of a pool of exclusively White women that seemed to look fairly similar to one another. Nothing in our society is removed from racial issues, really – we don’t live in a race-less society – and Hollywood is anything but race-less. 

          Also, it’s bad form to tell someone to “chill out” when they are upset about something that does not upset you. Just because you are not upset by it doesn’t mean that it’s not a real issue. It’s considered “derailing.” If you’re interested, here is a blog summary about some of the upset about the casting: http://www.racialicious.com/2011/03/25/why-the-casting-of-the-hunger-games-matters/. 

          • Alyssa

            My issue is that people continue insisting that ‘olive skin tone’ means that the casting should have been a person of color.  I myself have an olive skin tone, and of all things, I’m mostly irish (with scottish, german, and english as well).  Me and my dad have both always had this skin tone, and we do not know where it came from, but we are not people “of color”, nor do you have to be to have that skin tone.  I can understand the assumption that a person with olive skin tone and black hair would be a person of color, but that could be as simple as casting someone who is greek, or italian – it wouldn’t even have to be an individual considered to be a person of color at all.   Suzanna Collins wrote the book, and approved of the casting, if she really didn’t believe that Jennifer could successfully be made into the Katniss she wrote about, she wouldn’t have approved.

      The dresses are very pretty and the setting and the photography and she looks so lovely… But can we just point out that she’s doing the same thing that you’ve scolded other actresses for doing in the past?  She is staring right at the bloody camera in every picture and the changes to her facial expression are minimal.  At best.

      Still, while her model chops aren’t doing it for me, she’s so very lovely.

      I don’t think she was being disingenuous at all. First of all, she’s thin but not stick thin.  Actors will often lose and gain weight for roles.  She’s currently playing Katniss in “The Hunger Games” which is about a girl who’s been starving most of her life.  The girl in these photos is far too healthy looking to pass as Katniss.

      Nice pictures, btw

    • AMartel

      Gorgeous and, more importantly for a film career, interesting looking woman, and she’s got acting chops for real.  She should not “STFU” with her opinions just because she’s “young, white, thin and blonde with a pretty face” even and despite whether she’s benefitting from these attributes.  She’s not stick-thin and her comments on matters of size are legitimate-too bad for you if you don’t like hearing it all the time.  And, no, blondies are not the standard of loveliness anymore.  Hasn’t been the case for a while.

      Now, slightly modified for cleavage, the Dior dress would be a stunning bridesmaid dress at a young woman’s wedding.  The Donna Karan is nice if too fussy for my tastes. The first D&G should be sent back 30 years from whence it came. The rest, lovely, feminine, unexciting.

      I didn’t detect any disingenuity, and as someone who has weighed between 90-180 lbs in my adult life I can be oh maybe a bit oversensitive to weight hypocrisy. She’s young and new to being interviewed. I’m sure she’ll learn to be more careful and clear when stating her opinions. I loved the way she looked in most of the dresses and was impressed that FINALLY someone did the parted lips thing right. Just slightly parted and only when wearing a subtle lip color, not one that screams the location of every molecule of lip. And  yes, she held that camera’s gaze like Magneto commands metal objects (he’s in the X-Men, isn’t he?).

And  yes, she held that camera’s gaze like Magneto commands metal objects (he’s in the X-Men, isn’t he?).

      I REALLY like this editorial, the lighting is so gorgeous, and it feels a lot more authentic and real then most editorials out there.  If I were ever to shoot for a magazine this is how I would shoot.  I don’t however feel like she’s the best model, and I think these pictures would have been even better with an actual model.

      There’ something very Renee-Zellweger-but-not-creepy about her face in the cover shot.

      She is swimming in both Dior and D&G. But she’s a lovely young lady and so amazingly talented. And healthy looking.

      She looks nice. Didn’t like all the outfits but all in all it was nice. I feel a need for a trip to the country with picnic basket for some reason now.

      I think there are some things that cannot be said enough.

      She was on Regis & Kelly this morning and said something about a photoshoot, she didn’t seem too fond of the results and mentioned photoshop. I wonder if this is what she was talking about?

      I don’t understand your complaint here. She’s in an industry with a certain conventional wisdom/culture and she disagrees with it. Why is she not allowed to express that disagreement? Just because she happens to conform to the standards doesn’t necessarily mean she agrees with them.

      I really dislike the clothes and styling… and she has the exact same expression in every photo.  Other than that ….

      Yawn. Same facial expression in every picture. Even if it’s a good face, I prefer more variety.

      I love that you said “white.” Do you have any idea how rare that is? Of course you do.

      She’s way prettier than most of her fake-blonde non-talented peers.

      She has a real 1970s look to her, from the hair to the (never-changing) facial expression. I can see that the creative director of this editorial just ran with it. By the way, I saw her in Winter’s Bone and she was pretty good, even though not at all like the book described the character (in looks, anyway).

      Why does she look the same in every pic? It’s like her face was photoshopped from one pic to another :/

      I’m in love with that Flare cover

      This is a complete bore. Plus, same expression in every picture.

      Yes, because if you benefit from affirmative action, you’re not allowed to criticize it. If you are straight, you can’t protest for gay rights. If you’re a man, you can’t criticize male chauvinists.

      Jennifer Lawrence may benefit from the Hollywood preference for thin blondes, but that doesn’t mean that she has to support it.
