Well, it seems that Jennifer has started to love herself even more these days because it has been known that JLaw impressed her coach and trainer, Joe Horrigan by getting in shape in just 6 weeks for her role in “The Hunger Games.”
JLaw has never been a fan of workouts and diets and whenever these two words were mentioned to her, all she wanted to do was punch the person in the face. However, JLaw is grateful about the workouts she has been doing recently for “The Hunger Games,” because she feels, it was after all, being done just for her.
When JLaw accepted her role as Katniss Everdeen she made sure that she would end up looking fit and healthy rather than thin and underfed. In the actress’s own words ” I don’t want little girls to be like, Oh, I want to look like Katniss, so I’m going to skip dinner!”
