When “Hunger Games” was first released, Lawrence received some backlash because some said she looked too healthy to play starving heroine Katniss. In her review, New York Times film critic Manohla Dargis wrote, “A few years ago Ms. Lawrence might have looked hungry enough to play Katniss, but now, at 21, her seductive, womanly figure makes a bad fit for a dystopian fantasy about a people starved into submission.” However, in a Hollywood atmosphere where eating and weight have always been touchy topics, Lawrence has discussed having a hearty appetite and her love of junk food. In the January issue of Marie Claire South Africa, Lawrence said, “Nothing makes me feel better than junk food and reality TV.”   She also told Glamour magazine, “I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?”
