Jennifer Lawrence wants everyone to cut the crap. Though that seems to be her usual disposition, the 28-year-old actress was specifically referencing illusions about people's diets in a recent interview for the October 2018 issue of InStyle. "If you are 20 pounds underweight and talk about eating pizza and fried chicken all the time, that's not going to make people feel good about themselves," Jennifer said.

"I just like it when everyone's honest."

In addressing "unrealistic beauty standards," Jennifer said, "I just like it when everyone's honest." The notion applies to herself, too, and the need to be honest about both the time and effort that go into her oftentimes rigorous diet and fitness routine. "If I'm going to the Oscars or having a movie premiere — I won't lie — I'm probably eating differently from how I would in my regular life to fit into those dresses," she said. "I feel comfortable saying that."

Though Jennifer jokes that she pays "more for cancelled workouts than actual ones," we know she can get into killer shape due to her previous work in Red Sparrow, the X-Men franchise, and of course The Hunger Games. In fact, she correlates feeling confident with working out. When asked about what makes her feel most beautiful, Jennifer said, "Honestly, when I'm at my most disciplined. Like, when I'm really making myself go to the gym." Adding, "When I'm there and running on the treadmill, that's when I feel most powerful."
