As if we couldn't love J-Law any more.
It turns out, we can.
The Oscar-winning actress, who is often lauded as the most 'normal' actress in Hollywood has hit back at critics of her physical appearance, saying that she addresses anyone who tells her to lose weight with a simple, "F**k you".
The 23-year-old revealed in the latest issue of Harper's Bazaar that she succumbed to the pressure to be thin early in her career, like many other young actresses, but as she grows older, she refuses to conform.
"They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet," she explained of her earlier career.
"They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me.'
"If anybody even tries to whisper the word "diet", I’m like, "You can go f*** yourself."'
Jennifer's waistline was noticeably slimmer during awards season, where she swept the boards with Best Actress wins, but has since returned to her healthy, toned figure.
As she continues filming The Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire, the Southern girl is determined to maintain a more healthy physique.
