The actress is tired of the stick-thin Hollywood norms

Jennifer Lawrence endured months of body painting for her upcoming role as a (nude!) blue superhero in X-Men: First Class, and the actress was all about embracing her womanly figure for the film. “I knew that if I was going to be naked in front of the world, I wanted to look like a woman and not a prepubescent 13-year-old boy,” Lawrence (in Marchesa) tells “I’m so sick of people thinking that’s what we’re supposed to look like.” Refreshingly, the Oscar nominee hasn’t let her recent rise to fame change who she really is — even when it comes to prepping for Hollywood’s biggest nights. “Fifteen minutes before [the Academy Awards], the guy doing my hair goes, ‘If you can get a salad, get a salad,'” the Oscar nominee recalls. “I said, ‘I’m getting a Philly cheesesteak.’ I’m sure there’s proof on a hotel bill somewhere.” So is she used to being a star? Time will tell. “When you’re on set, everybody’s like, ‘Oh, do you need water? Here’s 45 bottles!’” she jokes. “It’s really bizarre … I’m still getting used to it. I’m still in wonderland.” –Kim Peiffer
