No starlet can escape physical scrutiny. Many critics revieweing “Hunger Games” couldn’t resist commenting on 21-year-old leading actress Jennifer Lawrence’s size. Lawrence, of course, is slim, but as some critics say she’s not thin enough for a movie about starving. The New York Times went so far as to say that, “A few years ago Ms. Lawrence might have looked hungry enough to play Katniss,” while others called her “too big” and “big-boned.” Her co-star, Stanley Tucci told us he hadn’t read these reviews yet, but called the critics “ridiculous.”
“Big-boned? They should go make their own movie!” Tucci told BuzzFeed Shift at last night’s launch party for Giada DiLaurentis’s new cookbook “Weeknights With Giada” at the Andaz Hotel in New York. “That’s it, that’s all you can say. That’s ridiculous, a ridiculous statement.”
“I think [Jennifer Lawrence] is great, no matter how big her bones are,” added Tucci, who plays the flamboyant, blue-haired Caesar Flickerman in the film. “And they’re not big! She’s gorgeous.”
