Jennifer Lawrence Was Told to Lose 15 Pounds in 2 Weeks After a 'Degrading & Humiliating' Experience

Jennifer Lawrence Was Told to Lose 15 Pounds in 2 Weeks After a 'Degrading & Humiliating' Experience

Jennifer Lawrence stood on stage and spoke her truth at the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards last night.

“When I was much younger and starting out, I was told by producers of a film to lose 15 pounds in two weeks,” the 27-year-old actress said during her speech. “During this time a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much, thinner than me. We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates.”

“After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet,” she continued.

Jennifer then said a male producer didn’t necessarily agree with the weight loss. “He said he didn’t know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was ‘perfectly f***able.’”

“I’m still learning that I don’t have to smile when a man makes me uncomfortable. Every human being should have the power to be treated with respect because they’re human,” she added.

    Just stop, Jennifer. You CHOSE to do the nude lineup. No one held a gun to your head. None of what she’s saying is harassment. These celebs and their faux “victimization” stories diminish what happened to women who really are victims.

  • Lo Mo

    ..yeah, no gun, maybe just a contract w/ her managers/reps with a $ contratual penalty and a dropping-clause if she doesnt obey casting processes.. yeah.. easy to walk away when ur 18…

  • meme

    Still her CHOICE. 18 is not a child.

  • Ausangel01

    So is she more offended by what the male producer said which is such a throw away line that can easily be thrown back or just ignored or by the female producer who ‘made’ her strip her clothes off and line up like she was cattle?!? She gets sadder and sadder every time she opens her moronic mouth.

  • Curt Noydb

    As much as she likes to talk about her sexploits, her toys, and her fetishes I doubt she could be asked to do anything offensive.

  • Tania Alvarez-Hildebrand

    Okay so wait. People are practically begging these celebrities to come forward with their stories and when they do they get shamed for doing so. In reading the statements made on this particular thread, it sounds to me that unless your very life is being held in the palm of another “human being” then the abuse of power doesn’t count? I don’t understand the double meaning here. It’s still wrong. I do get that Hollywood runs on body image. It’s been that way since inception, but at the end of the day it’s still wrong. Keeping silence is what enabled that idiot Weinstein to feel empowered enough to have this open secret go as long as it did and allowed him to abuse all those people. All I can see now happening is that other victims will come forward right after it happens or maybe, hopefully, put a lid on other would be predators to maybe think twice about doing it in the first place.

    you are the reason women don’t tell their stories

  • meme

    No, I’m not the reason. I believe the women who said they were aggressively assaulted and/or raped by Harvey Weinstein. Being a woman, I know how prevalent sexual harrassment is. That said, there comes a time when one has to take RESPONSIBILITY for one’s own actions. There is a vast difference between being RAPED and consenting to a nude lineup. If you don’t understand that, you’re an idiot.

    She chose to take her clothes off. A man saying to a young girl (there’s a good chance she was underage at the time) that she’s fuckable is not just harassing her, but also disrespecting her.

  • jh7058622

    She doesn’t talk about that you fool.

  • calafeast

    Yeah, but a lot of others also did and now they do not actually have careers. Sooo… should we stay?

  • Yelissa

    Lol no one put a gun to her head, you make your own decisions, and she like majority of actresses and woman in entertaiment are ho3s, now the trend is not to wear bras and everyone can see your boobs is disgusting all these girls, ho3s, buy morals

  • Ram

    deflection. JLaw thought she was in control, that she could use harvey as he thought he was using her. Lupita should have won, but we all know why JLaw won instead.

  • Rhonda Schuck

    the hookers at the Bunny Ranch have it better then that. these rich, famous Hollywood women are nothing more then prostitutes who jump when their pimps tell them to. YOU NASTY WOMEN can quit lecturing the rest of us.

  • Rhonda Schuck

    or its like Ashley judd said to HW, if you want to touch me, I want an Oscar role. they are participants not victims. some win and some lose. and some realize even if they won they lost. Basically they’re all hookers with fancy dresses.

  • Just Saying

    Weinstein didn’t like what he saw then, I doubt he will be giving oscars like he did with Jlaw anymore, so you should move on too.

    And you should stop fucking your mom tonight. Be a new you. You are waste of a life, so quit it already.

  • Just Saying

    Actually is your mom I’m fucking, she says you should call her by the way and apologize for being a disappointment :)

    Sexual innuendo and proposition was bad in the 80′s. I’m flabbergasted that males as the primary instigators still get away with it to make a painfully difficult form of abuse.

  • calafeast

    That’s racist, my mom is a black trans moslem woman who has beautiful hair and is not fat no matter what society says.
    Take it back or I’ll call Ooooooppprah, Jada and Al Shhhhaaaaaarrrpton! That is racism discrimination I am woke and triggered you are problematic I exist so you owe me.

  • Katy Jane
  • Ausangel01

    No. She said these incidents both happened early in her career. So to imply that only the man is at fault isn’t right. She could have walked away from the male exec, but what the female said and did was far more degrading.
