  • The Hunger Games actress voices an all-too-common body worry as she discusses THAT thigh-flashing Dior dress

    Jennifer Lawrence has just given us another huge reason to love her by admitting that while many celebrities can rock a risqué red carpet frock like a pro, it doesn’t always mean they feel confident in them.

    At The Hunger Games: Catching Fire LA premiere, the 24-year-old style chameleon hit the headlines when she turned up in a show-stopping Dior grey ball gown with a completely sheer bottom that showed off her legs.

    And while we thought the Jen’s thigh-flashing designer dress made her look like total red carpet royalty, the actress has now revealed that on the night, she felt like just about any woman would in such a revealing number.

    Our latest body image icon got honest on US chat show Good Morning America when asked by show host Robin Roberts if the racy Dior frock was her favourite dress so far.

    ‘No, I wouldn’t say that’, the unfiltered A-lister replied. ‘I think any time a girl has to show her thighs, it’s never going to be her favorite look.’

    ‘I loved it, I loved the dress… if somebody else wore it,’ Jen laughed. ‘I mean, it’s hard for any woman to look at a picture of herself and be like, “Yeah, yeah… great job!”‘

    Which, unfortunately, is all too true. And while Jen may have worked the carpet with ease and projected her usual sunny persona for the cameras, it’s reassuring to hear such a gorgeous star speak so openly about the same body issues we’re all guilty of feeling.

    ‘The world has a certain idea – We see this airbrushed, perfect model and then if you don’t look like that…’, she said earlier this month.

    ‘You have to look past it – you look how you look, and be comfortable. What are you going to do? Be hungry every single day to make other people happy? That’s just dumb.’

    We can’t get enough of listening to this lady. Like we said: one more reason to all hail the ever-wise J-Law.
