In Hollywood I am considered fat: Jennifer Lawrence

Los Angeles: `Hunger Games` star Jennifer Lawrence refuses to slim down just so that she lands a part in a movie.

The actress, who was criticised by some earlier this year for looking well-fed in her portrayal of the heroine in the movie, is aware that in Hollywood she is considered obese, reported Aceshowbiz.

"In Hollywood, I`m obese. I`m considered a fat actress. I`m Val Kilmer in that one picture on the beach. I eat like a caveman. I`ll be the only actress who doesn`t have anorexia rumors. I`m never going to starve myself for a part.

"I don`t want little girls to be like, `Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I`m going to skip dinner`. I want my body to look fit and strong - not thin and underfed," she said.
