Is Jennifer Lawrence too Fat to Play Katniss?

It seems everyone has seen and is talking about “The Hunger Games” after its unthinkable $155 million domestic box office weekend.

My friend and colleague, Movie Mom Nell Minnow of Belifenet, called out multiple sources for calling Jennifer Lawrence too fat or large to play Katniss Everdeen, even soliciting a grudging apology of sorts from one. Good job, Nell!

For her part, Jennifer Lawrence seems to be fine with her figure.

    Jennifer Lawrence played the role perfectly, she is gorgeous and how could you even think that she was fat anyways? She’s by far perfect in everyways: shape, figure, looks, acting ability and role in the movie. I couldn’t have thought of anyone better to have played Katniss Everdeen, and that’s because there is no one better to play Katniss.
