Jennifer Lawrence says it's time to embrace a 'new normal body type'

Jennifer Lawrence is always one to speak her mind and in the May issue of Harper's Bazaar, the 25-year-old speaks candidly about the attention she gets in the spotlight, especially when it comes to her figure. "I would like us to make a new normal-body type," she said, adding, "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'."

The Hunger Games star admitted that although she does allow herself to indulge, her action movie-filled career often sees her working out and focusing on a healthier diet than the average person. "I do Pilates every day," she said. "I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person."

She added: "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. The bare minimum, just for me, would be to up the ante."

It's not the first time that Jennifer has promoted a positive, healthy body image message. The Silver Linings Playbook star has previously admitted that she tries to find a healthy balance between staying in shape and indulging in her favourite foods, which famously include burgers and fries.

The Oscar winner revealed she turned to personal trainer Dalton Wong to help her train ahead of X-Men: First Class, and find a routine that worked for her.

"I could never live on a diet," she wrote in the fitness guru's new book The Feelgood Plan. "Dalton taught me how to eat, move and live a delicious but healthy life. I will always thank him for that."
