The Hunger Games starlet, who's been named of one of the Most 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013, explains why she hates the f word
Jennifer Lawrence feels really strongly about not criticizing someone's weight in public.

The Hunger Games starlet, who was called overweight herself before becoming famous, was named one of Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013 and explained why she gets so upset when people call each other fat.

"I just think it should be illegal to call someone fat on TV," Jen said. "If we're regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words because of the effect it has on our younger generation, why aren't we regulating things like calling somebody fat?"

"I think the media needs to take responsibility on the effect it has on our younger generation, on these girls that are watching these television shows and picking up how to talk and how to be cool," she continued.

And although Jen's now an Oscar-winning actress and one of Hollywood's hottest women, she's not immune to the industry's impossible standards of perfection. It was just revealed that a 2011 magazine cover she posed for was Photoshopped to give her a trimmer waist and thinner face.

Do you agree with Jen's comments?
