Just when we thought our #girlcrush on actress Jennifer Lawrence couldn't get any more extreme, she goes and gives a warts 'n' all interview that leaves us thinking, quite possibly, we are in love with her.
Speaking to US Glamour, the *The Hunger Games *star talked about her style, size, the gender pay gap and being single, with the type of no-holds-barred approach that only J-Law seems able to deliver.
On the topic of style, for instance, how does she describe hers? Feminine and chic? Bold and experimental? Classic and eclectic? No. 'Slutty power lesbian'.
Yes, you read that right.
'That is literally what I say to a stylist,' she told the magazine. 'I don’t know if that’s offensive... you don’t see me as a slutty power lesbian on the red carpet a lot, because I’m embodying the Dior woman, which is an honour...
'But [also] I’ve got tits and an ass. And there are things that are made for skinny people — like a lot of embroidery, or it covers a lot — and those make me look fat. I have to show the lumps. If you have boobs, you have to show, like, "These are boobs. This isn’t cellulite." Not that there’s anything wrong with that.'
Speaking out in defence of women who aren't a size zero? Big gigantic tick. Next on the list – her reaction to the 'disbelief' that multi-million pound franchise The Hunger Games was carried by – shock horror – a woman.
'As women we don’t know we’re at a deficit because we have vaginas. It wasn’t until they had a headline like, "Even though she’s a woman!" And I was like, "Oh. I didn’t know to be looking out for that. How did this wittle vagina manage that? I carried a whooole movie. How did I do it, getting a period once a month?"' she asked.
Answering her own question, she went on to joke she managed the 'feat' by taking 'a week off every month'. 'I had to go to my red tent in the desert and wait it out,' she laughed. '[But] I think there was this studio mentality for a long time that women and girls can relate to a male hero, but boys and men can’t relate to a female hero. But that’s simply not true. And so we’ve fortunately proved that.'
On the subject of pay, here's what she said about the gender pay gap - which was brought to public attention following last year's Sony email hacking scandal - 'I keep going back and forth on being opinionated. I completely agree when there are actors who say, 'Actors should stay out of politics. We’re not politicians'...It’s not smart, businesswise, to be opinionated. But then what’s the point in having a voice at all if I’m not going to use it for what I truly believe in?"
And then there's the matter of her being single - 'I’m officially a virgin,' she remarked, when reminded she'd once said her hymen had grown back. 'It's that I'm picky. I feel a spark very, very rarely...'
'I don’t, like, date a lot,' she continued. 'I don’t meet a lot of guys who I want to go on a date with. I’ll find a guy attractive maybe once a year. But I’m not a lonely person. Me not dating someone is not a lack of anything in any way. I feel completely fulfilled. Yes, when I spark with someone, it’s exciting, but I definitely don’t need that.'
A strong and confident woman, who stands up for herself and others in the film industry, who is amusing, down to earth and independent, whilst also being the highest-paid actress in Hollywood?
Our New Year's Resolution? To be Jennifer Lawrence.
