Actress, Jennifer Lawrence gets her close up on Harper Bazaar's May 2016 issue.

The 25-year-old Hunger Games star spoke about feminism, body image and more with the mag.

Read excerpt of the interview below:

On feminism:

“I don’t know why that word is so scary to people; it shouldn’t be, because it just means equality. If we are moving forward in a society, you are feeling stronger as a woman, and you want to be taken more seriously. You don’t have to take away the wonderful traits that come with being a woman:

We are sensitive. We are pleasers. We’re empathetic. All those things that can keep you from asking for what you want or making mistakes.”

On body image in the film industry and being the girl with the “normal body”:

“I would like us to make a new normal-body type. Everybody says, ‘We love that there is somebody with a normal body!’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t feel like I have a normal body.’ I do Pilates every day.

I eat, but I work out a lot more than a normal person. I think we’ve gotten so used to underweight that when you are a normal weight it’s like, ‘Oh, my God, she’s curvy.’ Which is crazy. The bare minimum, just for me, would be to up the ante. At least so I don’t feel like the fattest one.”

On being a “people pleaser”:

“There’s nothing wrong with being a pleaser if you’re smart about it. As long as you are getting what’s fair. You know, I want my employers to be happy.

I want to please anyone I’m working for as long as they pay me the appropriate amount. I’ll make them as happy as they want.”
