Jennifer Lawrence dealt with 'fat' tag

Los Angeles, Oct 3 : Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawrence says it was not easy for her to find a foothold in Hollywood, thanks to her weight.


The 23-year-old, who won an Academy Award for her work in "Silver Linings Playbook", talks about her initial struggle in the November issue of Britain's Harper's Bazaar, reports aceshowbiz.com.

"I was young. It was just the kind of s**t that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn't lose a certain amount of weight," Lawrence said.

"They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that," she added.
