LA Times reporter, Alexandra Le Tellier, puts it into words very well in this article: http://articles.latimes.com/2013/nov/13/news/la-ol-jennifer-lawrence-hunger-games-strong-body-image-20131113, saying, "So, in that context, Jennifer Lawrence isn't just a body-positive role model for young women. In speaking out about body image, and in maintaining a realistic figure herself, she's helping broaden out definition of beauty so that it is more inclusive. That makes her a heroine to all women, even if that wasn't her intended goal." I absolutely love that line -
"She's helping broaden out definition of beauty so that it is more inclusive." And it's true.
So today, while browsing, I discovered this: http://www.upworthy.com/i-am-livid-that-a-magazine-did-this-to-jennifer-lawrence-and-my-guess-is-she-is-too?c=ufb1
Either way, Jennifer Lawrence has been my hero for speaking out about these topics for women in such a frank way. I wish more women who are in the spotlight and ordinary, every-day women would do so because it is important to teach our children and the next generations of girls that life is not - and should not be - just about how pretty or skinny you are.
