London: American actress Jennifer Lawrence says that when her friends go on crazy diets, she is the one eating their leftover food.

"I`m just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumours that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic," Lawrence was quoted as saying by a website.

"I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, Nobody`s eating bread - I just had to finish everyone`s burgers."

"I think it`s really important for girls to have people to look up to and to feel good about themselves."

She believes positive role models can have a strong effect on a young girls psyche," she told a magazine.
