Jennifer Lawrence landed the lead role of Katniss Everdeen in the movie adaptation of Suzanne Collin's popular series The Hunger Games when she was just 20 years old.
She recently reflected on her experience headlining the series during a chat with Viola Davis.
Lawrence said that her character's appearance on the big screen was influenced by her pre-MeToo weight and the fact that she grew up with limited means for food.
Lawrence said she didn't want to diet and didn't want her younger fans to feel like they couldn't dress up as Katniss because they weren't a certain weight.
Lawrence has spoken out about Hollywood's unrealistic expectations in the past.
In 2013, she spoke with BBC about pushing back against the image that young girls see in Hollywood.
