Jennifer Lawrence wants to change Hollywood beauty standards.
The 25-year-old actress says she doesn't like being labeled as having a "normal" body type in a new interview with Harper's Bazaar's, considering how hard she has to work for it.
"I would like us to make a new normal-body type," Lawrence says. "Everybody says, 'We love that there is somebody with a normal body!' And I'm like, 'I don't feel like I have a normal body.' I do Pilates every day. I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person."
"I think we've gotten so used to underweight that when you are a normal weight, it's like, 'Oh, my God, she's curvy.' Which is crazy," Lawrence, who's talked about her relatable eating habits before -- specifically, her love for Cool Ranch Doritos and McDonald's -- continues. "The bare minimum, just for me, would be to up the ante. At least so I don't feel like the fattest one."
Lawrence's thoughts on body image comes on the heels of her close friend Amy Schumer speaking out about being unhappy with Glamour magazine, when the publication included the Trainwreck actress in their plus-size issue. "Bottom line seems to be that these labels are unnecessary and reserved for women #muchlove," the 34-year-old comedian later Instagrammed.
Speaking of Lawrence's famous friends, the Oscar winner spills on hanging out with the likes of Adele, Emma Stone, Aziz Ansari, and her Hunger Games co-star, Woody Harrelson, and admits that she can't always hold her liquor.
"I don't really stay out late. I'm kind of a bummer. I'm a nana," she says. "It's hard to get me out, and when I do go out, I don't really stay out late. If I do stay out late and I'm partying hard, I will throw up. I don't have the tolerance to black out; I just start puking."
"Ask Emma Stone. It was the night we saw Adele in L.A," she adds, referencing their highly publicized A-list outing. "She just started rubbing my back. She was really sweet. I was like, 'Get out of here. It's so gross.'"
Nights with Lawrence can even get a little dangerous.
"Woody [Harrelson] cut his foot. He stayed over in one of my guest bedrooms, but that's where I started puking," she recalls. "I broke a candle because I can't just puke like a normal person -- I flay my arms everywhere. And I didn't clean it up because I'm an a**hole. The next day he cut his foot open."
"I was like, 'F**k, am I going to get sued?'" she continues. "And he's like, 'Are you going to ask if I'm okay?' That night got crazy."
