Jennifer Lawrence: ‘It Should Be Illegal to Call Somebody Fat’

ABC/ Lorenzo Bevilaqua(NEW YORK) -- Jennifer Lawrence said ”it should be illegal” to call someone fat and, in an interview with Barbara Walters, railed against people who bash the way women look.

“Because why is humiliating people funny?” the 23-year-old Oscar winner told Walters in an interview for the upcoming ABC News special, Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013. “I just think it should be illegal to call somebody fat on TV.”

Lawrence became Hollywood’s new “It” girl after she was picked to play Katniss Everdeen, the heroine in the film adaptations of the Hunger Games series. It’s a role that launched Lawrence to mega-stardom. Since stepping into the spotlight, Lawrence has been criticized for her figure, considered full by Hollywood standards, and it makes her furious.

“I get it, and, and I do it too, we all do it,” she told Walters. “[But] the media needs to take responsibility for the effect that it has on our younger generation, on these girls who are watching these television shows, and picking up how to talk and how to be cool.

“I mean, if we’re regulating cigarettes and sex and cuss words, because of the effect they have on our younger generation, why aren’t we regulating things like calling people fat?” she said.

Watch Barbara Walters’ full interview with Jennifer Lawrence in the ABC News special “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013,” Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. ET.
