Jennifer Lawrence's Most Badass Quotes
ON GENDER PAY INEQUALITY
"I'm over trying to find the 'adorable' way to state my opinion and still be likable! F--- that. I don't think I've ever worked for a man in charge who spent time contemplating what angle he should use to have his voice heard. It's just heard."

"Just because I'm a public figure, just because I'm an actress, does not mean that I asked for this. It does not mean that it comes with the territory. It's my body, and it should be my choice, and the fact that it is not my choice is absolutely disgusting. I can't believe that we even live in that kind of world."

ON LOVING HER BODY
"I like the way I look. I'm really sick of these actresses looking like birds. I'd rather look a little chubby on camera and look like a person in real life than look great on screen and look like a scarecrow in real life."
