"Dieting is just not in the cards for me."

By Renee Cherry

Don't expect Jennifer Lawrence to dish on her "red carpet prep" diet anytime soon. The actress recently revealed that she doesn't usually diet, even when she's asked to lose weight for a role. (Related: How Taraji P. Henson Ditched Her Food Guilt-and Stopped Comparing Herself to Others)

"I've always wondered what it would take to get me to really diet, to really be hungry, because I've never done it for a movie," she told Vanity Fair. "For Hunger Games, they told me to lose weight, and then I discovered Jack in the Box."

Lawrence has made exceptions though, including a diet for her role in the upcoming film Red Sparrow. "Red Sparrow was the first time that I was really hungry, and disciplined," she told the publication. "I can't be in character as an ex-ballerina and not feel like an ex-ballerina."

But as soon as she was finished filming her ballet scenes, she ditched the diet. "I discovered this Viennese kielbasa sausage in an uncircumcised French-bread roll with pickle relish," she said. "I had that almost every day in Budapest-which you can see, because I continue to grow in the movie. Dieting is just not in the cards for me."

More famous women are speaking up against diet culture: Demi Lovato and Camila Mendes both recently shared why they gave up dieting (hint: dieting sucks). And they've got the right idea: The anti-diet is the healthiest diet of all.
