Share This Article:
Jennifer Lawrence has said she was made to do a “nude line-up” in the earlier days of her career and told to lose weight by a female producer. The Oscar-winning actress added that it was a “degrading and humiliating” moment, and she also claimed that a male film executive had told her that he thought she was “perfectly ‘f***able'”. Lawrence spoke at the Elle Women In Hollywood Awards in Los Angeles, and addressed the number of allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein from a number of actresses in the film industry. She told the audience at the event that she found the allegations against the movie mogul “harrowing”, before recounting her own story. The 27-year-old did not identify the project she had been involved with, or name the producers, but in her speech she said she was told to “lose 15lb” in two weeks when she was “much younger and starting out” in the film industry. Lawrence said: “One girl before me had already been fired for not losing enough weight fast enough. “And, during this time, a female producer had me do a nude line-up with about five women who were much, much thinner than me. “And we all stood side by side with only paste-ons covering our privates. “After that degrading and humiliating line-up, the female producer told me I should use the naked photos of myself as inspiration for my diet.” She continued: “I asked to speak to a producer about the unrealistic diet regime and he responded by telling me he didn’t know why everyone thought I was so fat, he thought I was perfectly ‘f***able’.
