Seventeen: You've said girls should embrace their curves. Why did you think it important to make that statement?
Jennifer Lawrence: When I was playing Mystique in X-Men, I remember thinking, If I'm going to be naked in paint in front of the entire world, I'm going to look like a woman. I'm going to have curves and have boobs and have a butt. Because girls are going to look at that, and if I look like a scarecrow, they are going to think, Oh, that's normal. It's not normal. I'm just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, "Nobody's eating bread--I just had to finish everyone's burgers". I think it's really important for girls to have people to look up to and feel good about themselves.
cliftonphifer: I just realized that the girl who played Clove is the creepy ass woman-child in the Orphan no wonder I shuddered the moment she appeared on screen. I’ve been waiting on someone to catch on to that.
When I say that I’m the first in my dad’s side to get a college degree, I mean The First. Some of my cousins went to community college for a few semester, I think one has a 2 year degree, but I’m the only one RIGHT NOW with a Bachelor’s Degree. 8 aunts and uncles (dad included), 2-4 kids for each of them. I’m goddamn proud of my accomplishment. Have ANY of them...

lotus09: fuckyeahfeminists: The interest rates on federal student loans will double this summer if Congress doesn’t take action. Congress, led by Republican leadership in the House, is planning to let the College Cost Reduction and Access Act legislation expire on July 1, effectively doubling the interest rates on loans for… Jesus Fuck. This would be BAD. Yes it would be very bad. Thank...

dangerguerrero: Kinda cool how some people are all like “Yo Trayvon Martin was shady and/or a thug and/or a drug dealer and/or a troublemaker,” as though — EVEN IF IT WERE ALL TRUE — that would make it OK for some crusading jamook to gun him down in street like it’s Tombstone and shit. Everyone is the worst all the time. This.
