Jennifer Lawrence calls Miley Cyrus' VMAs-style antics 'disgusting'
Jennifer Lawrence is one person who has been turned off by Miley Cyrus' outrageous antics in recent months. From the VMAs to the EMAs, Cyrus has been as controversial as possible, and Lawrence calls the demand for the stunts "disgusting."
When asked by BBC Newsnight about whether she worries about the sexualization of Hollywood, she responds, "I don't really worry about it. It's definitely something that's just kind of a part of this world. It is a part of the entertainment industry that sells. Sex sells, and for some disgusting reason young sex sells even more."
But that doesn't mean "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is against Cyrus doing her thing. "Everybody's got their own path and they've got their own way of finding themselves," she says. "For some people, that's how they feel best, that's how they feel sexy and that's how they want to perform ... To each their own."
Of course, Lawrence is doing her own thing. Starring in critically acclaimed movies from "Catching Fire" to "American Hustle," she is playing strong female characters who are great influences on her audience.
"As long as I am Katniss, I do make conscious decisions that way," she says. "We have the ability to control this image that young girls are going to be seeing. Girls see enough of this body that we'll never be able to obtain ... It's an amazing opportunity to rid ourselves of that in this industry. And also, I think, it's better to look strong and healthy. I feel like somebody like Kate Moss running at you with a bow and arrow wouldn't really be scary."
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is due in theaters on Nov. 22.
