Jennifer Lawrence Says She Wants To Stick Up For Herself More In 2013
Jennifer Lawrence has revealed her new year’s resolution 2013. The actress has said that for the new year, she plans to stick up for herself more often since she tends to come across as a real pushover at times. Jennifer says that when she disagrees with someone, she will do it in a way that’s very polite which usually doesn’t end up working for her – she gets walked over for her polite attitude.
Lawrence who is covering next month’s issue of Marie Claire South Africa, tells the mag she had been let down a lot in the film industry, especially with casting directors calling her too fat to play a role in their movies. Luckily, Jennifer doesn’t let things like that get to her, she tends to look on the brighter side – which has since landed her leading roles in movies such as The Hunger Games. Ha.
“My New Year’s Resolution is to stand up for myself,” she told Marie Claire South Africa. “It’s hard for me. Nobody wants to be disliked. You always want to be polite and be nice. I tried to find a balance in saying what I mean and still being nice. I can’t do it. I have this ‘okay’ attitude and everything. I end up allowing myself to get walked over and resenting it.”
Speaking of her weight issue, she added: “I’d rather look chubby on screen and like a person in real life. I don’t like going outthat much. I’m kind of an old lady. After it’s 11, I’m like ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch.”
