Jennifer Lawrence Aims to Redefine the Normal Body Type
It’s nothing new that in today’s day and age, the entertainment industry favors the skinny girl. At least, that’s what it seems like. Award-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence is understandably frustrated by this and passionate about changing what people define as the “normal” body-type.
“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 argues.
“I would like us to make a new normal-body type. 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,” Jennifer says.
Recently, Gucci used an unhealthily thin-looking model, and the Advertising Standards Authority in Britain banned the ad. In addition, Amy Schumer–a size 6 or 8–was deemed as plus-size in Glamour magazine. The star fought back, claiming her size is by no means “plus.”
Looks like people are finally speaking up. A size 00 is by no means what we should be aiming for. If that’s your natural body type, great, but if you’re a few sizes bigger, that should never be seen as fat by any means.
