Seventeen: You've said girls should embrace their curves. Why did you think it important to make that statement?
Jennifer Lawrence: When I was playing Mystique in X-Men, I remember thinking, If I'm going to be naked in paint in front of the entire world, I'm going to look like a woman. I'm going to have curves and have boobs and have a butt. Because girls are going to look at that, and if I look like a scarecrow, they are going to think, Oh, that's normal. It's not normal. I'm just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, "Nobody's eating bread--I just had to finish everyone's burgers". I think it's really important for girls to have people to look up to and feel good about themselves.
Friend: On a scale of 1 to 10, how obsessed are you with Harry Potter.

Brandon: "Tell me what movie you were watching."
Brandon: "Tell me, NOW!"
Me: "You're not the boss of me."
Brandon: "Yes I am. I'm wearing the boxers."
Me: "I'm a feminist."
Brandon: "No you're not."
Me: "Yes i am."
Brandon: "If you were a feminist you wouldn't be in a relationship with me. Feminists are all lesbians."
Me: "No they're not. Besides, i'm a feminine feminist."
Brandon: "Just stop. You're not a feminist."
Me: "Yes i am!"
Brandon: "well you'll have to change that."
Jordan: "I want to watch that movie!" (Dodgeball)
Grandma: "Well it's on t.v. tonight."

Jordan: "EXCUSE me, Jessica. I am SIX years old..."
Tony: *Walks in*
Me: "Hello, Anthony."
Tony: "Hello... Jessica.... Do you have another name I can call you?"
