When she did try to stand up for herself, another producer said she was "perfectly f-kable", Lawrence said. She went on to reveal that the actress before her was cut from the role because she didn't slim down quick enough.
"I worked with Harvey five years ago and I did not experience any form of harassment personally, nor did I know about any of these allegations", she said in a statement to People.
After acknowledging that hearing about the sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein had been "harrowing", Lawrence recounted a story about the producers of an unnamed film, who asked her to lose weight. "We are stood side-by-side with only tape on covering our privates", she said.
Jennifer Lawrence on Monday opened up about a "degrading and humiliating" experience from the early days of her career. "True disgust at the director who assaulted me when I was 16 years old and anger that I felt at the agents and the producers who made me feel that silence was a condition of my employment". After this scene, a particularly humiliating, the producer has pointed the finger at the silhouette of the actress: " She told me that I had to use these pictures of me to control my diet. "Super easy", Lawrence told ELLE's Women magazine.
Even now, Lawrence says she's still learning that she doesn't have to "smile when a man makes me uncomfortable". "I let myself be treated a certain way because I felt like I had to for my career", she admitted. "I will lend my voice to any boy, girl, man, or woman who does not feel like they can protect themselves". She added, "Every human being should have the power to be treated with respect because they're human".
Actress Jennifer Lawrence speaks onstage at the "mother!" press conference during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
"I didn't want to be a whistleblower". While Weinstein denies that any of sexual encounters weren't consensual, damning investigative reports by The New York Times and The New Yorker detailing decades of abuse paint a different picture.
"We will stop normalizing these horrific situations", Lawrence said.
