‘Red Sparrow’ Jennifer Lawrence opens up about nude scene in new movie

In 2014, hackers stole nude photos from actress Jennifer Lawrence and published on the internet. Since then, the actress is in general stayed away from nude film scenes, until now. Lawrence opens up about her role in “Red Sparrow” and why she felt “free” after the filming of the more sexual scenes.

Jennifer Lawrence has revealed how she deals with the body shamers when it comes to the industry’s obsession with unrealistic beauty standards.

The 28-year-old star, who has always been an advocate for a positive body image recently opened up about “comfortable” and “honest” with her diet and the way she looks.

“I like it when everyone is honest,” Lawrence said in a new interview with InStyle Magazine. “If you’re 20 pounds underweight, and to talk about eating pizza and fried chicken the whole time, that is not going to make people feel good about themselves. If I go to the Oscars or a movie premiere — I won’t lie — I’m probably eating otherwise I would in my normal life to fit in those dresses. And I feel comfortable saying that.”

The star continued on to say that she feels most beautiful when she knows she has worked hard for it and when she is the most disciplined.”

‘Eh, ’90 sex worker who’s just won her case in the court,” is how Jennifer Lawrence would describe her style in 10 words. “I love the style of the 90’s — a bit androgynous, but also elegant. I love mixing it up.” Beauty and glamour are big parts of her life, but the actress and @diorparfums muse stresses, that is not always the case. “When I was growing up, my brothers used to tell me that I was ugly. Butt-ugly, to be exact. Afterwards, I had the good fortune to go through a large part of my life, without too concerned about my appearance,” she tells @KahlanaBarfield in our October beauty issue.

“Like, if I really make myself go to the gym,” she said. “That is a joke, because I certainly pay more for the cancelled training than the actual ones. But when I’m there and running on the treadmill, that is when I feel most powerful.”

Today’s selfie-driven culture and obsession with Instagram-able seems to be why the actress said she chooses to avoid social media, but also admitted that even though she is not in a normal way.

“I’m on. But I’m a voyeur: I look, I can’t speak,” the actress explained. “There is always some slack. So many people are listening and attention, and they have so many opinions about anything and everything. I would not at all welcome, unless it is really necessary. I don’t want to put myself in there for no reason. Unless I’m promoting something or anything really burns my onions, that you don’t hear from me.”

Online haters aside, Lawrence, who announced in February that they plan to take a year off to act as a result of its spring thriller, “Red Sparrow,” to focus on “the establishment of our democracy,” said one thing she has learned in life is that it gets better as you get older.

“Everything is better when you get older,” she said. “It is easier to cut through things, and everything is simplified. Physically, everything is even worse. Such as, why does my neck hurt? Why do my knees crack? But emotionally, it gets better.”
