Jennifer graced the cover of Harper’s Bazaar May 2016 cover, looking gorgeous and sultry as ever sporting a platinum hairdo and a hot pink pout. And in true J-Law fashion, she wasn’t shy about opening up about any subject, from whether or not she has a dating “type”, to Hollywood’s absurd body standards.

Jennifer spoke about being told she has a “normal” body, explaining QUOTE, “I would like us to make a new normal-body type. Everybody says, ‘We love that there is somebody with a normal body!’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t feel like I have a normal body.’ I do Pilates every day. I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person. I think we’ve gotten so used to underweight that when you are a normal weight it’s like, ‘Oh, my God, she’s curvy.’ Which is crazy.”

Yeah, she pretty much nailed that one. When it comes to her dating life at the moment J-Law kept mum, but she did insist she doesn’t have a type and that all of her ex-boyfriends are uncomparable. Minus the fact that at least two of them have been gorgeous British men, such as Nicholas Hoult and Chris Martin, we’ll just have to take her word on that one.

Jennifer also spoke about feminism, and how everyone seems to be afraid to use that f-word when they really shouldn’t be, saying QUOTE, “I don’t know why that word is so scary to people; it shouldn’t be, because it just means equality. If we are moving forward in a society, you are feeling stronger as a woman, and you want to be taken more seriously. You don’t have to take away the wonderful traits that come with being a woman: We are sensitive. We are pleasers. We’re empathetic. All those things that can keep you from asking for what you want or making mistakes.”

Preach! Ummm, Jennifer Lawrence for President, anyone?

  1. I agree with everything Jennifer has to say! I have always thought she was
    awesome from the very beginning. The only thing that I would like to add
    more to her statement about feminism is that it’s not that our society is
    afraid of feminism or claiming to be a feminist, it’s that there are
    feminazis who make it about their own version of equality rather than just
    equality. Many of them making women feel bad because of things as simple as
    dressing up when going on a date with their boyfriends and claiming sexism
    when there isn’t any. I believe these women give feminism a bad name and
    make it out to be something that it is not. I am a feminist, but many of
    the “feminists” I know I would like to smack some sense into the way they
    act sometimes and treat men like they are less than. Equality is equality.
    It doesn’t mean we should reverse the circumstances to dole out
    repercussions because of the past and present circumstances. We are getting
    closer and closer to true equality on all fronts, especially with the leaps
    and bounds we have made in less than a century!

    1. Exactly! I have personally seen women hating on men too. I think these
      women should not be considered feminists, they should rightfully be
      considered sexists. They don’t believe in equality. Their the opposite of
      misogynists (i can’t remember the name). I hate it when I meet bitter
      people like that. I even had a conversation with someone where the topic of
      gender issues came up, and she said something along the lines of “men don’t
      face issues”. Ughh, I don’t get it! I think both men and women are put into
      boxes. Sure, I agree, women are usually the ones who aren’t treated as
      fairly, but a lot of time issues with men tend to get swept under the rug.
      I think that if we talk about things like this more, we will take one step
      further towards equality. I think that the fear of showing weakness and
      acting tough is so damaging. Why is it a bad thing for women to feel
      empathetic towards men or vice versa? The whole point is that everyone
      should be treated with respect.

  2. She totally took that Feminism speech from Emma Watson.

    Which isn’t bad. I suppose Emma is just a great role model who people
    should follow. But so you know Jennifer Lawrence isn’t the first to get to
    the boat. But everyone should take a leaf out of Emma Watson’s book. She is
    a smart and beautiful model, activist and actress.
