Jennifer Lawrence has an Oscar, a full film schedule and a widely admired sense of humor, but the 23-year-old actress has been battling comments about her weight since childhood.

“I was young. It was just the kind of sh** that actresses have to go through," she says in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar U.K.

Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that.

And she's still getting similar remarks today.

[Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go f*** yourself.’”
