The heroine of The Hunger Games is supposed to be hungry, recalls an American critic. The first reviews of Hunger Games are relatively positive but the opinion of a journalist from New York Times , Manhola Dargis, spilled much ink over the past few hours. It highlights the fact that Jennifer Lawrence , is perhaps not lean enough to embody Katniss, the heroine, who, though muscular, lack of food in his disctrict and does not eat his fill. ” A few years ago, Miss Lawrence could have had the appearance of a young hungry girl and play Katniss , she writes. But at age of 20, her face is very feminine and seductive, it fits well with this dystopia where people are hungry because of their government. “
A critic who does not date from yesterday when Jennifer was announced to the cast of the film, fans of the novel felt that it was a bad idea. For some it was too much flesh. For others, it was already too old to play a teenager of 16. Yet the fact that the remark comes from a film critic has revived the debate, just hours before the release of the wire. Another criticism, Willa Paskin, answered Dargis on Twitter :
“I know Hunger Games talks about children who are hungry, but given the world we live in, Dargis should not say that Lawrence is bignyti.ms / GLmqJT“
Now the debate takes a different turn, the appearance of the young actress is compared to current standards. Besides Jennifer Lawrence is well aware of not being as skinny as most of her peers, and she welcomes it: “I’m so tired of seeing these girls in the plan, she told Seventeen. I think it is important that girls have more examples of beauty that help them feel good about themselves. “
Few months ago, there was the inverse problem raised, Zoe Saldana was deemed too thin to be credible heroine in action movie ( Colombiana ). The weight of the actresses is definitely a topic that comes up more and more on the carpet in Hollywood. The actresses are presented as role models, such criticism should continue to flourish, especially regarding teen actresses blockbusters.
