Jennifer Lawrence took to the airwaves on the heels of the world premiere of “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” sending the message women are more than their lady parts — regardless of width.

“I watch these women on the television shows pointing to these women and judging them, and calling them ugly and calling them fat. And, it’s just like, where have we come? Why are we here?” Lawrence said of shows like “Fashion Police” in a recent interview with Access Hollywood.

The media is zooming in on all the wrong features, the Oscar-award-winning actress added in a series of post-premiere press junkets.

“Things like that are just showing these generations of young people to put value in all the things that are wrong and put these unrealistic expectations for women,” she said in an interview with Yahoo.

“It’s disappointing that the media keeps it alive and fuels that fire.”

Hypersexualization of youth in Hollywood isn’t Tinseltown’s best side either.

“It’s a part of the entertainment industry that sells. Sex sells and, for some disgusting reason, young sex sells even more,” she said in an interview with the BBC.

At the end of the day, though, you just have “look past” the pressure of maintaining Hollywood’s ideal.

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