“If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet,’ I’m like, ‘You can go f— yourself.”

“Be comfortable. What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.”

“If I don’t have anything to do all day, I might not even put my pants on.”

“I don’t like going out that much. I’m kind of an old lady. After it’s 11, I’m like, ‘Don’t these kids ever get tired?’ When I’m out, I think about my couch. Like, ‘It would be awesome to be on it right now. I bet there’s an episode of Dance Moms on.’”

“I’m a horrible dancer! I’m like a dad at prom. I look like Gumby getting electrocuted.”

“I really would not call myself a fashion icon. I would call myself somebody who gets dressed by professionals. [It’s like], ‘Dance, monkey, dance’ right on the red carpet. I would call me more of a monkey.”

“It doesn’t matter how much money I make, unfairness in prices really fires me up. Like shopping in L.A and a T-shirt costs $150.”

“I put in my time; I lived in a rat-infested apartment when I was 14 and I was told ‘No’ many times. I put my blood, sweat and tears into all of this. It’s easy to look from the outside and see my career grew very fast but there was a time before that career when I was working for it and I definitely wouldn’t have wanted that time to go on any longer.”

 “I have an amazing group of friends who are not in the business, who I trust…Because I don’t feel any different…So I surround myself with people who don’t fake laugh at my jokes.”

“I learned that you can’t have any expectations with life. You never know what’s going to happen.”

“I think it’s really important for girls to have people to look up to and to feel good about themselves. I want my body to look fit and strong, not thin and underfed.”

“Things happen to you. But they don’t have to happen to your soul.”

“I’m a big believer in accepting yourself and not really worrying about it.”

“At the end of the day, there’s probably nothing that makes me feel better than junk food and reality TV.”

“You have a choice. You don’t have to be a person who spreads negativity and lies for a living. You can do something good. You can be good. Let’s just make that choice and it feels better.”

“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”

“A powerful woman is someone who exudes confidence and can be tough but fair and kind. And also knows how to get what she wants.”

“I’m over trying to find the adorable way to state my opinion.”

Jennifer Lawrence is a brave, independent, and high-spirit woman. She is never afraid to speak up for herself and others’ needs. Bravo!
